comment I accidentally typed password into bash command line
+1 This is exactly what I wanted to recommend! Besides rm ~/.bash_history~ to remove the backup file in the OP's case when it has been already saved

comment VLC volume only to 200%?
Thanks. This option must be new - I have VLC 2.0.6 and it's not present there: i.stack.imgur.com/nYoPR.png

I accepted this answer despite of it being less verbose than the other one, because it addresses the points of my question directly and clearly. Verbosity is not the most important criteria.

Now I reopened the document again (after Word crashed with the same problem), and I am red again. I don't get it at all.

comment My colleague often shuts down my machine through the LAN - how do I prevent it?
@HarryJohnston "by default you need Administrator privilege to remotely shutdown a computer." - you mean Administrator privilege on his own machine, not the remote one? That can be anyone! Just bringing his laptop and connecting to the LAN. This is definitely not a safe.

@Thomas see your point, but isn't it worrying example of stupidity of default Win 7 setup? Anyone can shutdown your machine by default?? Is Microsoft for real?

Thanks +1. I have numbered your points to be able to refer to them. Can you please separate what is actually sure and confirmed (I guess only points 1, 2), from what you expect from your experience? For example the points 4 and 5 are a bit speculative as the app developers have their own interest and for sure will watch the % of users more than support/lack of support.. Anyway if you can place the citations to those particular points it would be great.
