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

comment What does end of Windows XP support in 2014/04 mean for the end users?
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.

comment How to change color of authors in reviews in Word 2003
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.

@Ramhound what are signature updates? So if you don't use MSE but other antivirus there is no other change for you?

comment Lenovo Thinkpad T530 - LCD has strong moire effect
Citing discussion on notebookreview.com: "Most likely Lenovo no longer uses the AUO B156HW01 V.4 panel, which is known for its excellent quality." Maybe we can see somewhere which panel is used?

@Rik great! Please pass it to KerrekSB under his original post, he is the author (I posted it as an answer here only because he refused to do so).

@KerrekSB it's your pity - you could have gained 50rep had you posted your answer; now the bounty will go waste. You have 10 minutes.

comment Is it possible to hint Windows to bring a process completely out of swap
@KerrekSB, seems like minor problem. Maybe you are touching memory area which is not mapped? Anyway I think your answer deserves the bounty :) PS: the unswap seems much slower than it could be, compared to HDD speed. Seems that the bottleneck is somewhere else, but where?
