comment Why are brownouts so harmful?
Nice answer. BTW, there is a typo in the first sentence: "A brownout is an undervoltage condition, when the AC supply drops below about 10% of the nominal value" - should be 90%.

comment Windows RAM Test Program
Please explain why you don't want to restart. As pointed out by phoebus, it's impossible to fully test the RAM while Windows is running (because, among other things, Windows will reserve part of the RAM exclusively for itself, hence no other program will be able to test it).

comment Software to draw custom street maps?
As by the (expanded) question, I don't think that's what the poster is looking for. He/she appears to need a drawing program with special support for maps.

comment Software to draw custom street maps?
Please clarify: Are you looking for a SW that will render existing map data (like e.g. a car navigation system's display), or a SW that lets you draw maps?

comment How-to limit Unix FIND results number
Note that just find ...|xargs is dangerous, as it will do funny/weird/disastrous things if some file name contains funny characters. Always use find ... -print0 | xargs -0 (GNU extension, I believe).

In what format are the subtitles? There are several popular formats. Or do you want to create subtitles yourself?
