comment Port Routing/DNS for individual program
As I say, it works with the reverse proxy. It may also be that the libraries used work with https transparently.

comment How can I add spell checking ability in Google Talk?
For those looking to choose between the two, the clues seem to be in the names. tinySpell is a small program concentrating on spelling, PhraseExpress is a large program with many features and settings concentrating on phrases. Both programs can be disabled by default and enabled for particular programs, or vice versa.

comment How do hdparm's -S and -B options interact?
I think the -B switch affects the drive's internal, automatic energy saving features, so it stops the drive spinning itself down, but it doesn't stop the OS spinning it down upon request.

comment What does the BIOS setting XHCI Pre-Boot Mode do?
But setting it to Disabled allows my USB devices to work normally, so it doesn't disable the ports entirely.

comment some keys don't appear in xev
You don't happen to be talking about a Zenbook do you? Either way I think the answer might be that the acpi driver does not support those keys yet, either that or we're not using the right one.

comment Do SSD disks do not last as long with Windows XP as with other OS?
What do you mean by "broken"? Presumably unusable sectors? Could the hardware/OS/drivers not be wear levelling properly? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wear_leveling What make/model of drives are they?

"Warm" is pretty subjective and will depend on the ambient temperature.

comment How to decipher time in console
For me it displays, my -r option is to get the last modification date of a file. 72951500 nano seconds is 0.072951500 seconds, so you can just add them on, either before or after calling date.
