comment How can I send a Ctrl+Alt+Delete through Remote Desktop in Windows 8?
The special thing about Ctl-Alt-Del is that it's intercepted by the BIOS (hardware) at the local machine. So you can't actually send that. You would have to use some other key combination and send some kind of "reset" command to the remote machine.

comment Does ls provide information about NFS permissions?
Unless you are accessing them as root user, where the server usually maps UID 0 to some other UID (called root squash).

Are you really running as root most of the time?

comment Advantages of a 130W vs 90W ac adapter?
It won't charge the battery faster since charge current is limited by the battery charge controller.

@david If the PS with the smaller capacity fails twice as often due to being used near its limits then the large one pays for itself. But you'll only know with testing and looking at failure rates.

comment Laptop overheats, BSOD, turns off when playing games
"inexpensive" laptops will do this more often. The best you can do is keep the air vents clean and unclogged, and make sure there are no obstructions near the vents. May laptops are really designed for "typical" usage, such as writing documents etc. where the can stay on low frequency setting more often.

@miniBill Can you point me to a reference explaining how Google DNS uses TCP? And how to configure it? Thanks.

comment How to make Firefox use TCP for DNS
You won't be able to do this since most DNS servers don't listen on TCP. It's mostly used only for large zone transfers. Your best bet would be to run a local, caching name server (e.g. dnsmasq) and set up your hosts to use that server.

The window manager can hide windows completely. That's how virtual desktops work. Try a different window manager.

An alternative would be to create a custom launcher that opens all the tabs with places that you wanted. This assumes you always want the same locations
