Could it be paired with another receiver in your neighborhood while that machine is still powered on?

comment Where can I download Windows 7 (legally from Microsoft)?
There exists a longer list for other languages on sites.google.com/site/linuxlablibrary/windows-iso. I have also read on a Dutch forum that removing sources\ei.cfg allows you to turn an installation ISO into any of the Starter (x86), Home Basic, Home Premium and Ultimate versions. (oh, that was stated by Karan too :))

@Teifi You should use apt-cache policy pidgin pidgin-data to determine where the packages are installed from.

comment MiniITX-based NAS can't shutdown properly when Wake-on-Lan is enabled in BIOS
@Mr.Goodkat Still having this issue? Since you mentioned Debian, can you attach the full output of dmesg and pastebin the output of sudo acpidump > acpidump.txt somewhere?

comment Does VT-d need hardware support (besides the CPU)?
That user does not look like a GA employee. Isn't Z86 Express referred to from Z68X? My question still stands, is VT-d support dependent on the hardware (motherboard!) or firmware (BIOS)?

comment Does VT-d need hardware support (besides the CPU)?
I tried to keep this question more generic, but since you insisted, the motherboard is GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 rev1.0. There is no official option, but the provided images in this forum thread do add an Enable VT-d option. (though I cannot confirm whether it works or not since I do not have a VT-d capable CPU yet.)

comment Simple daemon in C for constantly removing files from a user directory
D'oh, I was about to post an answer... @IlianZapryanov If you ask a new question about how to keep a directory empty, I will post the answer with inotify.

comment Simple daemon in C for constantly removing files from a user directory
@l0b0 With other programs, yes. I have tried it on pidgin and it works. Illian, instead of a busy loop, consider using inotify.

Have you considered rm -r ~/.purple/icons; ln -s /dev/null ~/.purple/icons ? In that way, you do not even have to delete anything!

comment Connect a keyboard to my laptop
@WilliamHilsum I can confirm that such an adapter did not work for me with an old brand-less keyboard included with an old PC (256MB RAM). Another report on unix.stackexchange.com/q/52706/8250
