comment Dell U2312HM (DP) + Intel HD 3000 = Flicker
See this page. In brief, to fix this you either have to remove all but one RAM modules, or (better) update motherboard BIOS.

comment What does a router do?
@WarrenHill not quite. You've lost a middle part: a switch. The switch is an "intelligent hub". And router is a further complication over a switch, basically a small server, which manages network in an even more intelligent way, including doing NAT etc.

comment How to change user:group for fat32 USB drive?
Well Microsoft do have file and directory permissions in NTFS, but they have a format very different from that of POSIX permissions. See also ntfs-3g ownership and permissions page. There it is explained how to setup an NTFS partition to use POSIX permissions in Linux.

Since when are BIOS settings stored in flash memory? I don't remember any modern motherboard where I couldn't reset its settings by pulling the battery out...

comment How to make vim truly reopen a file as a cpp file?
setlocal isk< does work after I do set filetype=cpp, but writing your full command to ~/.vim/ftplugin/forth.vim doesn't seem to automatically call this. Do I misunderstand what it actually should do?

comment Format a hard drive to work with Windows
Computer Management (or how it was called there) is readily available via Start->right click on Computer->the option there (I don't have a Windows machine right now to check how it was called there). No need to go through Control Panel. +1 anyway.
