comment OCZ SSD drive reviews are very polarized, whereas Corsair and Sandisk reviews are mostly great - What's up with OCZ?
I don't believe the OCZ reviews are all fake. For example, I have used three OCZ drives and I have liked all of them. My current Vertex is running great.

comment Can my Windows 8 computer turn on by itself?
If the operating system wanted to, it could set a timer for every 15 minutes, wake up just a little bit to check on things like reading email for example and then sleep again. Just like a cell phone does.

Windows can set those BIOS timers you mention. It is used for scheduled tasks.

comment Tired of waiting for www.google-analytics.com — can a browser setting “opt me out”?
0.0.0.0 is a valid IP address. At least, software had better NOT be special casing it. The default route is 0.0.0.0/0. Very different from 0.0.0.0/32.

Wanted to point out that some programs used different extensions such as CDR or IMG. But ISO seemed to become the standard eventually.

@RandyHoward: ulimit -t will limit the CPU time used, but rsync generally uses very little CPU, being limited by I/O.

@PJC: With the right software, or a dev environment, you can read files without taking ownership by using impersonation.
