comment virtual machine is stored is almost full yet Window C drive says 29GB free
To do this via GUI with VMware Workstation 8.03 on Ubuntu 12.04, enter the manager (sudo vmware), right-click the virtual machine and select Settings, highlight Hard Disk, click the Utilities drop-down and select Compact. This method, however, did not work for me, despite having 17/41GB free.

comment VLC: Always on top and transparent when out of focus
I'm not sure how you would use the area under a window after making it 'always on top' without using hot-key-mouse combination clicks (ctrl+left, etc.).

Perfect! So any more than 4 parallel disks wouldn't do much on a 2Gbps line. Thanks.

comment What causes crackles on a USB microphone when connected via a USB hub?
Gold-plated audio connectors are not superior to those without. Gold-plated USB hubs, on the other hand, have just the right type of bling needed to make things right in the universe.

Good catch @Bigbio2002! More evidence supporting sleep. Note that you can edit answers directly in the future, using the edit link at the bottom of each answer.
