comment How can I prevent Ask.com Toolbar from being installed every time Java is updated?
The Java Auto Updater appears to only update the 32-bit version. If you also have 64-bit installed, it will be left behind.

comment Why should (or shouldn't) I use TrueCrypt's Virtual Encrypted Disk over encrypting my Windows partitions?
Doesn't 'Full Disk Encryption' only encrypt the entire partition instead of the entire disk? If so, I would suppose a dual-boot would still be possible.

comment Skip “Sign in to your Microsoft account” (Windows 8.1 Setup)
Weird. My new Win 8.1 Pro setup shows a different 'Create a Microsoft Account' screen and doesn't have that option. Still haven't found a way to setup this new business laptop. Unbelievable that MS of all companies doesn't understand that we may just want to join the device to a domain.

comment IPv6 for home users
SixXS is not a company but a private effort by two individuals with the aim to make quality IPv6 connectivity more accessible in a time when most providers do not yet provide native connectivity. They do this in their spare time. The actual tunnels are provided freely by various ISPs around the world and SixXS provides the tooling and makes it easy for end-users. Pim van Pelt works at Google and Jeroen Massar has a networking company. See sixxs.net/about & sixxs.net/faq/sixxs/?faq=why

comment Moving OSX Lion from one Harddrive to another Harddrive
If you have a Macbook Pro you can only fit one internal disk. The Time Machine method works well in this case.

comment Best way to capture a disk state
True. Virtualization will make your life much easier if you have the hardware for it. For simple needs you can even go with free options, like VMware Player, Virtualbox, etc. I personally use Virtualbox quite a lot because it can be fully automated with Vagrant (vagrantup.com).

comment Reinstall operating system on computer with full disk encryption
Good tips. I would guess it's an ATA password.
