comment How do I delete an email from outlook in such a way that it does not qualify for restoration via the “recover deleted items” functionality?
We still need to retain most emails, but when sensitive information needs to be purged, do you know if this can be performed on a case by case basis?

This is a bad idea. It probably contains a rootkit or trojan

Chrome team should be embarrassed at such a bug sitting in the bug queue for over 2 years. I am very disappointed.

comment Is it possible to add volume controls & shortcut keys to a mechanical keyboard which does not have the keys?
A device like the Shuttle Express looks pretty ideal -- could leave it sitting between monitors. Something that I can hit with one hand (while taking a phone call) would be nice -- beats complex two-hander shortcuts with AutoHotKey. And it's priced reasonably well. Somebody who is shelling out for a mechanical keyboard ought to not shy away for something like this.

comment Is it possible to add volume controls & shortcut keys to a mechanical keyboard which does not have the keys?
I want immediate access to volume controls and calculator. I have achieved this with a keyboard in the past, but am hoping for something nearly as user-friendly. I typically have 20+ windows open across 4 monitors, so it's a battle keeping things clean

I am not looking for a shopping recommendation. I'm looking for a technology that will allow me to achieve this functionality. I updated the question so that it is clearly not a shopping recommendation; please re-open.

I worked with this for a while... it didn't help. My other 3 monitors look just fine too.

comment What are my SSD options today for an older (3 years) laptop?
Check anandtech for actual random-read random-write numbers. The OCZ offerings are still a full order of magnitude below the X-25. Here's a link: anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3605

comment What are my SSD options today for an older (3 years) laptop?
The performance per dollar of the OCZ vertex is nowhere near the X-25M which just dropped significantly in price. They like to advertise sequential write/read stats... but those stats don't matter in standard operating system use. anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/intel/showdoc.aspx?i=3403&p=1

Do not buy X25-E. Get the X25-M (preferably the 34nm version that re-ships on August 28th). It outperforms the X25-E and is significantly cheaper.

It's even better now that they've released the 34nm version of the drive. This new version sports 10-40% better performance in random-read and random-write (the only stats that matter for standard-use). They're also a lot cheaper. These will re-ship on August-28th or thereabouts.
