comment Why do printers require drivers?
Very much a relic. Back in the day there was no standard printer protocol, and every printer manufacturer had their own language. The Wordperfect story Almost Perfect talks a bit about the old days and printer driver madness.

Looks like Steve Jobs has asked that question recently and not gotten a good answer.

comment kioexec with multiple files
i was just trying to get it as a general case, for editing or using my diff tool (xxdiff). If i do the cat, kioexec will clean up and I wouldn't be able to do any edits. I really want kioexec to support multiple files, which it may do in KDE4.

kdiff3 requires qt4/kde4, which is not on my system :( SOL as far as kdiff3 goes.

comment kioexec with multiple files
But, my editor is not Kde, neither is cat (kioexec cat fish://yaddayadda works). It seems kioexec copies the file over to a temp file, runs the app as a child proc, and uploads diff on any change on app exit. This should run for any app. Thanks much tho.

comment How do I find (and kill) process running on a certain port?
I'd recommend against the kill -9. It doesn't allow cleanup, and some internet app is more likely to have resources that need to be shut down cleanly.

comment Can I lock a user to one site only in Chrome?
What OS? I don't think browsers can lock you down this hard, you may need to play with firewalls and such.

comment Can I lock a user to one site only in Chrome?
I think this is more 'shutting down certain UI elements to keep you in the browser' than limit to a specific site, though you do want to keep the user tied to one chrome instance if you want to not open up IE or Safari or whatever.

comment Getting by with only one monitor
For some reason, the curmudgeon in me felt the need to add The Story of Mel. I do agree with OP though, I have multiple monitors at work, and work at home with a single monitor is an adjustment
