comment What does seek do with solid state storage?
Even on a physical spinning hard drive, the OS sends a command (a SCSI command, ATA/SATA command, or USB mass storage command) to drive to get LBA X. The host doesn't actually end up telling the drive to move the head on any level, the drive's firmware does that. If you want some idea of a what an SSD firmware does in response to storage commands, look into some of the specs for the Jasmine OpenSSD project if you can find them, some of that explains things on a very low level.

You should make your boot partition ext2 and not fat for this reason.

comment “Disconnecting” from a RemoteApp
If you are doing all this just to keep an IRC client open, aside from testing RemoteApp, look into setting up a bouncer (ZNC being a good one) - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BNC_(software)

comment DVD malicious code
Probably the easiest way this could happen would be an autorun type of thing like Sony's rootkit - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sony_BMG_copy_protection_rootkit_scandal - though I haven't heard of any company actually doing this.
