comment Can I get an alternative browser (Firefox/Chrome) on Win8 RT?
@Mikko Rantalainen WinRT APIs do not prevent in any way using C/C++ programing languages. Amyuni PDF Creator for WinRT for example (a product I worked on) was implemented in C/C++.

comment Processor working on low frequencies only
Without seeing the laptop it is hard to say, but a broken CPU fan might explain your issues.

comment Lossless conversion of PDF to DJVU
I don't think it will preserve them, but cannot think on any better way of preserving the original images and create a lossless process.

comment Does it make sense converting a file to a higher audio bitrate?
I upvoted this, but I think you got the question wrong. Assume that I have a portable device that only supports the mp3 format, and I have all my music as 96kbps wma files. Does it make sense to use a higher bitrate when converting to mp3? I would say it does.

comment Quality loss during conversion between pdf and djvu
No, it was designed for storing scanned images, it uses an excelent compression algorithm for this (JB2), and it can associate text to specific portions of the image (for ocr-enabled scans), but it does not use vector graphics.

comment Multimedia PDF (Audio, Video and Links) That works on Desktop and iOS
I agree with @Ramhound about his solution. However I must say that flash is indeed supported in iOS

comment Stream computer screen to TV via network instead of a USB wireless link
I think that wireless device you linked does not actually use the standard wireless netowrk protocols, as Kyle said, the current bandwidth for those protocols is not sufficient for uncompressed HD streaming.

comment Radeon X300/X550 card running slower/faster than other box with onboard graphics?
Maybe the game is not using the same set of features (like resolution, textures quality, anti-aliasing etc) on both cards. Maybe your settings on the VIA card are less-demanding than your settings on the ATI card. I ran the game out of curiosity and I could not find a way to change the settings, so the game is probably deciding for you and is not doing a good job at it.

comment DVD driver stopped recognizing any discs
You could try replacing the drive with a new one... it looks to me that this one went to retirement.

comment SVN property changes to unrelated files
What I usually do is to verify them manually and if they do not contain any actual modification on the code then I revert them. But it does not do any harm to commit them either.

comment I get a long beep in my Laptop
By the way, you should try not to use it in the current state. Overheat may damage your laptop "permanently".

@Mark Storer Yes, your are right, thanks for the clarification.

comment Activate comments in PDF
@pipitas I think what Raphink meant is that he wants to generate a pdf file such that he can add new annotations when the file is used in Acrobat Reader. So I think my answer is not wrong.

comment Validate PDF/X compliance without Acrobat Professional
@pipitas I probably was not clear enough. What I meant is that Adobe's implementation of the validation in preflight changes on each version. I have had files where validation fails with one or more versions and not with others.

comment Validate PDF/X compliance without Acrobat Professional
Since you did not specify "free" this time, allow me to recommend Amyuni PDF Analyzer. It currently support verification for PDF/A (the verification set is compatible with Acrobat 9), but it is extendable/programmable with scripts. Take a look at its features here pdfanalyzer.com/features.html, it may suit your needs.

comment Validate PDF/X compliance without Acrobat Professional
this is a difficult one... Adobe changes the requirements of PDF/X between versions of Acrobat Pro, you can have a file that verifies fine in one version on preflight and fails in another version
