comment Saving a website permanently
Do the normal saving it etc... then you could take a video of you scrolling the page. It's much harder to edit a video than an image.

comment “Ghost” UI elements
I've added a new answer - a little late in the day but I can confirm that it does fix it (in Windows7 at least).

This will only resolve the current floating item - it won't stop the problem.

Unfortunately this only seems to work 3/4 times. Then dwm stops appearing

comment What is the rationale behind safely removing USB media from windows PCs?
@Simon: Yep, it basically wouldn't mount after that. The first few times windows reported "There was an error with the device", re-inserting it a few times left it completely undetected by the USB port.

comment What is the rationale behind safely removing USB media from windows PCs?
@Simon: One was several minutes after writing had finished (according to explorer), the other was in the region of 20 seconds. The latter I was in a hurry and windows refused to unmount the device despite everything appeared closed/not accessing the drive.

comment What is the rationale behind safely removing USB media from windows PCs?
I've had at least two USB drives die on my because they were removed without safely doing so. I've also had one that I 'almost' lost but was still readable so I managed to repair/format it before it was too late.

comment Short Circuit - can it cause/detecting damage
Yeah it was definitely a short to ground, and it seems the PSU was able to detect that and required some forceful waking up. That's good new though. Cheers guys :)

comment Ethernet Port Troubles
I haven't tried removing the power completely, shall give that a whirl. Yes I did try a reset of the settings in the BIOS which didn't have any effect. Think my difficulty is convincing the tech support at the company that there is a problem. To even suggest just formatting the disk in my opinion reflects a low levels knowledge of PC systems.

I don't, but honestly I want it fixing :P I can USB to my modem so I'll do that for now.

Is in warranty (though you've got statutory rights in UK anyway). My views were pretty similar, seeing as lights don't work on the port suggests a hardware issue. Opening up cast and tinkering "may" void my warranty, so probably won't do that.

+1 Have checked that, but certainly a 1st place to look otherwise.
