comment XBMC - show movie titles in german?
Note that this will only affect newly added content. To update existing films, either remove and readd the source (forcing a rescan of everything), or after changing the language for the source you can right-click each film → Movie informationRefresh

comment check the physical health of a USB stick in Linux
@Zaz As best as I understand it, badblocks isn't designed for detecting fake flash drives and may not report any errors for them.

comment Where to access “Share folder” on Remote Desktop host?
I also had to manually upgrade libfreerdp-plugins-standard; for some reason the dependencies weren't properly set in the packages: sudo apt-get install libfreerdp-plugins-standard

You can make the command slightly more generic like so: su - $USER

comment Create Virtualbox image of a physical partition
One might think that, but it made a clone of the actual data. Step 7 created a ~1 KB image (that merely pointed to the raw disk), but the size of the image created in Step 8 was the size of all of the included partitions, in this case 40 GB. I also know it was a copy because when I boot to my Windows partition, it's different from the VM I created based on it, which I've made changes to. -rw------- 1 root root 40G Feb 4 09:28 windows.vdi -rw------- 1 root root 722 Feb 4 09:11 windows.vmdk

comment Windows XP - Power surge on hub port
I have this same problem on an HP Compaq NX 6110 laptop, with similar specs as yours (Celeron 1.4. Windows XP SP3). I'm pretty sure it's hardware related, because even after wiping the hard drive and reinstalling Windows, I still get this error intermittently.
