comment Time Machine preferences being ignored
How is your external drive connected? For me (10.7.1) TimeMachine automatically adds any attached USB drive to the exclude list (and I cannot remove those entries). This might be different for FireWire drives though...

comment Without microphone jack, how to use MacBook Pro 13 inch for having a skype conversation?
I must say i'm puzzled by your privacy issue. While using headphones indeed ensures, that people around you cannot hear what the person at the other end says, using an additional microphone rather than the internal one does not make people around you not hear you anymore :))

comment Open Source Virtualization Solution
I don't know what exactly you mean. proxmox contains a java applet VNC viewer, so you can actually interact with the virtual machine from your browser if thats what you mean.

comment How to temporary remove all cookies in chrome?
No. When you start an incognito session, you get a new window which practically starts "blank", i.e. without any cookies stored or anything like that, additionally your addons are disabled. While you use the window, cookies are stored only temporarily and limited to that window. When you close the incognito window, the cache and cookies are gone.

comment Is an RDNSS or DHCPv6 server allowed to distribute a link-local IP address as DNS server?
are you sure? i'm using mac os x lion, too, and when my radvd distributes a link-local dns via RDNSS, i dont get an interface identifier on the IP set by mac os and all DNS requests time out. Also, leaving RDNSS/DHCPv6 apart - the network dialog does not even allow the IP address to contain a % character, if you want to configure the DNS manually
