comment Arrow keys not functional in Ubuntu Virtual Machine on Windows 7
@aesthetic priest: VMware calls its guest additions VMware Tools. FWIW I've never had trouble like this running Ubuntu in VirtualBox though.

comment Is there a list of available boot-args for darwin / OS X
@nhinkle: Done. I originally did not do so becuase StackExchange's lack of table support makes it hard to list them in a way that's not painfully ugly. But I suppose ugly information is better than no information. :-)

comment Can't install “Docky” theme?
@Earl: You need to put it in /usr/share/docky/themes/ not /usr/local/share/docky/themes. Since Ubuntu offers Docky in its repositories it doesn't put it in the /usr/local folder.

comment Can't install “Docky” theme?
@Earl The only thing I did differently is install it in my home directory, not /usr/, but that should work. I'll try it that way and see if it works.

comment Windows - Use Local Service and/or Network Service account for a windows service
@user19185 It doesn't decrease their security per se, but it does raise the attack profile. If a service running as LocalService is compromised it would have access to anything you opened up for LocalService, whereas ordinarily it would have access to nothing. This has been standard computer security operating procedure since the 70s.

comment Why Doesn't Autofill Work Consistently
@Dennis I actually reloaded the page in question a couple times to make sure it didn't do that. Of course, they could change at intervals too, so it still might not work consistently.
