comment How to get 2-week view in google calendar
This site is for questions about computer hardware or software. Questions about specific web sites are not really appropriate for this site. They are better asked on their support forum. See the faq (superuser.com/faq). "… and it is not about … websites or web services like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress"

comment How powerful of a PC do you need to edit HD videos?
It's not really that ugly, if there is no other way to get your original files in an intermediate format. MPEG is a delivery format and not really suitable for editing. Try converting it to a uncompressed AVI so you don't have any further degradation from the compression and see if that edits better. Do all your editing and convert it back to whatever format you need for publishing as the last step.

comment How powerful of a PC do you need to edit HD videos?
@BBlake - Sony Vegas does not use the video card (GPU) to do rendering. It's all CPU. If the NLE isn't designed specifically to use the GPU (Sony Vegas isn't), the author would be throwing away their money. See: sonycreativesoftware.com/forums/… . I don't know whether Premiere supports the GPU-enabled playback codec.

comment Do high-end graphics cards raise your electricity bill by much?
A computer with a 450W PSU will never draw 450 Watts of continuous power. PSU requirements are to cover the maximum peak power requirements during start up. Continuous (and typical use) power consumption is much less.

After upgrading, Firefox 3.6 said that this extension was not compatible, so it was disabled. With the changes listed in the "accepted" answer, the add-on is running just fine.

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Picasa2 (?), if memory serves. I don't have Picasa installed at the moment. I just reinstalled my OS.

I would say no. You just need to remove or clear the database-related files. Like a fresh install.
