comment ISO file is not bootable to be used in a virtual machine
I'm thinking that it is either corrupted or not built correctly. Try to use the other software suggested in the other answers.

Doesn't matter too much since the rebuild time is the same regardless.

comment Dual boot Windows 8 x2 with truecrypt
If you're at the passphrase screen of TrueCrypt on boot, then you have already passed the boot selection menu and the default drive is being booted from.

comment Is it safe to turn off Windows Firewall on private network?
I would tend to disagree on the point that if I take my laptop to a friend's house and connect to their network, I do not know if their network and computers have the necessary security that meets my standards. If there is a virus on their network that can spread easily internally, I open myself for risk by not having a local software firewall running on my laptop.

comment Why ssh connection fails if `id_rsa.pub` file exists in local `.ssh` directory?
It looks like your host is trying to validate off of your public key which is fine. However, your public key does not authenticate successfully. Make sure that you've provided your public key to the host in the authorized_keys under the user account in which the key is meant to access.

comment How to stop syncing read status on Outlook (MAC)
Instead of using the Read flag since that is pretty much unavoidable, I would suggest using Categories. If someone else is working on an issue, change the category of the email to a different color. This way you won't have two people working on the same ticket. If you're a small office, look into making the category color for each person different. You should look into Open Source Support Ticket software or something like zendesk.

comment How to stop syncing read status on Outlook (MAC)
If this inbox is for something like support@example.com where multiple people will be checking the emails, you should really look into a helpdesk solution instead of inbox setup. While this does not directly answer your question, it may help open possibilities for best practices with a support environment. What is the email used for?

comment Install Windows or games onto SSD?
You may benefit from Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) if your system supports it. It will basically use your SSD had your HDD Cache. Your system won't really even see the SSD drive as it will be transparently caching your files. It is really the best of both worlds when you're talking about limited amount of SSD space and need for performance. intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-032826.htm

comment What Version Of JAVA JRE do I have?
You do have a version later than what they are asking for. However, that is still an old version. Is there any reason why your company is on JRE 6 instead of JRE 7? If it is for compatibility with old software, they may want to look at upgrading that software since there were many security fixes between the two versions.

comment Prezi.com is now full screen press ESC to exit
This really doesn't have anything to do with Prezi as much as it does Adobe Flash. I did not have any issues following the links in the solution you posted. They resolve just fine.

comment Could not create directory '/var/empty/.ssh'
What happens when you manually create the .ssh directory in /var/empty. You can use chown -R USERNAME /var/empty/.ssh to change the ownership to your account.

@Richard By Office Productivity, I mean email, web browsing, word processing, etc. Basically anything non-3d or moving parts (i.e video/flash).

comment Using USB to HDMI to extend screen
@techie007 I think that this goes to show that it can vary based on the adapter. The one that I tried and returned was a USB2.0 $50 adapter from BestBuy.

comment Info on a specific site
Any sort of server side scripting would not be captured with a WGET or CURL as you would only be downloading the compiled HTML code. If your site has server side scripting (ruby, python, .net, php, etc) then you would need server access to download the raw files.

comment Fans go to 100% during shutdown, Waiting for background programs to close
It sounds like when that user logs in, they have something that is starting up which hangs when that service tries to stop. Go through a process of elimination to determine the culprit.
