    Window's domain connection - firmware 1.01

    Hello, Did anyone else have a problem with their Boot Camp where the new 1.01 firmware update seems to be the changing factor "breaking" Windows XP's ability to log on to the domain? In short, I can't seem to log into the Windows XP domain any more after the firmware update. I'm using a...

    Launching programs from the command line

    Ok... either this is a really simple question, or it's a really complicated one. Basically I run a few small networks amongst a few clients. It would be nice to be able to ssh in to the server, and from there ssh into each individual machine from home... I've run around and turned on all the...

    To quell the conspiracy theories...

    Sounds dumb but...

    How does one properly fit a "stretch-fit" baseball cap to one's head size? The reason I ask is I'd rather not do the whole "well, I think you soak it, or do I? Should it go in the dishwasher? Crud... or was that putting it in the sink. Oh wait... No, no... I shouldn't give it to the dog..."...
