comment What is a good backup strategy for home?
Raid0 does not keep copies of files. Did you mean Raid1? Using a NAS as a backup device is a good idea, keeping your documents on a RAID1 and thinking this means you don't need a backup is not so wise. There are lots of things that could damage this data still. 2 most likely are user error or raid controller failure, but you also have fire, flood and 3 year olds with drinks to worry about.

comment Password protect the boot menu on a desktop computer
Set the BIOS setup password, then DISABLE all but your main hard drive as boot options in the BIOS. Don't just change the order, you need to disable/remove the other options. Your BIOS should then prompt for a password if one of the removed options is chosen from the boot menu.

comment Universal Remote Question
I want one of them. There are also cheaper more normal Harmony remotes, if $300 is a bit steep still.

comment I want to see how other websites look in different web browsers
Testing multiple versions of IE can be done easily using the developer tools in IE8. Also good for viewing websites that don't work in IE8 or in IE8 compatability mode. (I'm looking at you yamaha!)

comment Forgotten Password to be unmasked or revealed
@Kanini, so have I. My friend has a pre-configured router, the tool that Arjan mentions will be easier to get hold of the password than getting her to phone her ISP.

comment Forgotten Password to be unmasked or revealed
Sorry, I noticed after I had made my comment that the question was previously un-clear, but your answer is still not relevent, so I'm afraid the downvote stands. After all, the point of the voting system is so that the most relevent/best answers make it to the top.
