comment Is it possible to run an old 16-bit DOS application under Windows 7 64-bit?
@Jakob It is DOSBox. I only wanted to point out that DOSBox can even handle 'complex 3D applications' from the DOS-era in a 64-bit Win7 environment.

I downloaded "Dark Forces" from Steam just a week ago and it works on Win7 64-bit using DOSBox. It has an issue when run in fullscreen mode (changing colors, nothing serious) but those disappear if you use windowed mode.

comment Why does Firefox force a 3 second delay before installing add-ons?
The question should be "why is Mozilla the only one doing this?". IMHO, every new dialog should enable the buttons 1 sec after showing them because you might accidentally click it (or someone wants you to click it without your consent). I really hate it when I click somewhere and a button spawns there just before I click. It also happens with phones when someone calls you right at the moment you want to tap that 'play' button.

comment What is Internet Relay Chat?
It's also a robust system. The biggest networks manage tens of thousands of channels with up to 1k users on each channel. Still, the lag is expressed in decimals and very rarely exceeds the 1s mark. (translated from german wikipedia: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat)

comment Suck or blow? What's better for dust?
I'd say it depends on what way the fan is spinning. Electricity has a flow direction (technical direction: from + to - or ground). The mobo is designed to give the fan power through + and get it back through -. Running the fan manually in the different direction causes electricity to flow the other way around, thus damaging the board if the voltage is bigger than the diodes can handle.
