comment Setting custom truecrypt boot prompt
Well this should succeed in that regard. If you want to slow down slightly more tech-savvy people even more, you would do well to disable (or make outputless) the ESC menu and change the boot strings as outlined in my answer, in addition to the steps mentioned by John.

comment Excel 2003 lag under Windows 7

comment Copied directory appears to become larger at destination
The filesystem is literally clean (the shell script also removes the MBR including partition table and sets up a new NTFS partition from scratch). Thanks for the info!

comment Copied directory appears to become larger at destination
Thanks for the help, however, this needs to be portable -- bc isn't even installed on my system by default, so I'm inclined to say I can't consider it "portable". I will however try the changes you listed in a few minutes (going away for a few). Thanks! :)

comment How can I increase my Graphics Card's video memory on my HP Probook 4510s? It's currently 64MB on the Mobile Intel GMA 4500HD
"The graphics memory on laptops feeds off of a certain percentage of the system memory" -- this statement is not always true.

comment Is it my ISP's fault that I mostly cannot browse over HTTPS?
Actually, CarlF's suggestion was not really far-fetched at all. I would find it more far-fetched that your ISP was blocking all HTTPS traffic... ;)

I have a working setup which already gives the progress, however it exceeds 100% copied. I want to know why that is, and how to reach one of the goals specified at the end.

What do you mean by "what can I then use"? What can you then use to do what exactly?
