comment How to print a large page on multiple smaller pages?
This seems like a really good solution, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to work on Windows Vista. (I did file a bug report about that to their system.)

Ok. Might still be a coincidence, though. But in the case they actually did target you with Adobe product ads, the forum theory posted here does sound plausible.

comment Is flash drive wear a significant issue?
Killing the card within DAYS? Really? Yeah, granted you're talking about CF card, not an SSD drive there, but it's actually that fast? Wow.

comment Is flash drive wear a significant issue?
Realistically, I expect the netbook to last at least a few years, I'd give it somewhere from 4 to 10, depending on the usage. Well, in my care, probably just two years, but that's a separate issue. :) But you're getting to the point here - it doesn't matter if ext3 causes some SSD wear if the computer start to break up anyway. But from the articles, it sounds like it's something to really worry about, rather than just a technical curiosity - which leads me to assume it might wear out in a year or two with the wrong filesystem.

comment Torrent uploading on a college network
The limit on the university is, I hope, based on the fact that torrent takes up a lot of traffic - even with limitations. So you shouldn't really try going around the limit, even for legitimate traffic, unless there's something that makes your case somehow special. Don't try to hog the wire(less). :)
