comment Windows 8 Consumer Preview Upgrade keeps on failing
I got this exact same error on the release edition of Windows 8 Pro on a Thinkpad T420s running Win7 pro. Both "Keep Windows settings, personal files and appplications" and "Keep personal files only" failed. Had to "Install by creating media" to install to an USB stick. I ended up doing a full reinstall from USB.

comment Set fan speed by RPM on Thinkpad T420s in Linux
As you say, Thinkfan essentially does echo "level 2" > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan too. I've already automated the changing of fan speeds, I just want level 2.5 :)

comment Determining if a hard disk has been removed and data copied from it?
I can just connect the drive to my Linux computer and run dd if=/dev/sdx of=out.img. Afaik merely connecting the disk to a PC won't leave any traces. Then I'll get a copy of every byte on the disk that I can alter without you knowing, since I now have my own copy.

comment Replace HD with SSD in MacBook where CD/DVD drive is broken
That's interesting. I do this all the time when I install Linux, so I don't have to waste time and plastic on burning CDs. I only have Snow Leopard on a DVD, where do I get a DVD image? (That's what you mean, right, a img or dmg or something?)

comment Replace HD with SSD in MacBook where CD/DVD drive is broken
Nobody I knew had an external enclosure but lots of people have macs, so I ended up using target disk mode. :)

comment Replace HD with SSD in MacBook where CD/DVD drive is broken
I guess it's kind of hard to find a USB drive that works without OS X running.. I.e. at Mac "BIOS" level.

Target disk mode worked great :)

Is Gparted able to work with MBR partitions, or will it convert the MBR to GPT?

comment Air flow in a HAF 932 - ideal CPU and GPU cooler?
I would rather worry more than less. Not so much because I actually worry, though, I'd just like to get some insight into how these things work and what the ideal configurations are. Might as well put the air flow in my tower to good use :)

I still have that black border/padding, and the "blurred" LCD with wrong resolution look on 1920x1080, though.
