comment Windows 7: Allow standard UAC user to install from CD
@IanBoyd In my case, the users are not even installing anything. They're just want to run a program from CD. Apparently, it also prompts for the admin password in this case. Very annoying.

comment Why do USB A and B cables have different contacts?
@Moab The 5th pin is not connected to the other side. It's either shorted to GND (via a resistor) or left not connected. It signals the OTG host whether it should be in host / device mode.

comment What NAS setup for two-way syncing over the internet?
yup, used unison, but it still won't handle merge conflict nicely. Another gotcha is if you use unicode in the filenames, it was a problem before, not sure if that got fixed yet or not.'

comment Visual signs of a quality power supply
I'm over in Asian, and unfortunately, there's a ton of them that don't have a big brandname. Or perhaps I don't recognize the brand in Chinese.
