comment Remote management of parents' computers
another plus that is worth mentioning is that it is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux and can connect across OS. I've been installing the personal version for my family recently; but since I'm using Linux and they Windows so many other software doesn't fit the bill.

comment Distortion on human voices but not music
Thanks for the link, both workaround mentioned in the linked answer (pressing mic button and loosening up the jack a bit) works for my case as well, I don't really want to carry two earphones.

comment Distortion on human voices but not music
I don't think it's a blown earphone, I tested it just now to play the same Youtube video on my mobile phone and the laptop, and they sound distinctly different (i.e. not at all subtle); the music are almost unaffected, but Sinatra's voice is perfectly crisp on my mobile phone but totally inaudible on the laptop.

Will it use less energy overall to only plug it in if the battery is low and unplug it as soon as the battery is loaded? I don't know if that will save energy or not, but that will quickly kill your battery life.

comment How far will you get with an 'rm -rf /' command?
@MaxMackie: not because they're loaded in memory, but because an open file reference have the same power as a hard-link (i.e. if a file has at least one hard link, it won't be deleted from the disk).
