Crap! Looks like my 8800GTX video card is broken. That's a serious bummer.
The card does some very serious funny things: as soon as going in-game, the card doesn't really freeze up, but has some sort of memory corruption problem, which remains throughout reboots.
Very coincidentally, I just ordered new hardware for my new gaming computer. The only thing not being replaced was the video card, because I thought it would be better to just wait a while until the next generation of cards from nVidia were available.
Apparently, Fate has decided otherwise.
Found this article, showing you how to lock down Firefox.
This is quite useful when deploying Firefox on, for instance, a Terminal Server.

Some highlights of the software (as told on their site):
During the course of the lifetime of a Windows Installation, you're bound to stack up on one or more devices that no longer exist. Additionally, some device (existing or not) with an attitude, could very well make your life a living hell.
Luckily, there's a solution, with this cool software:
What would an OS says or think when copying files - let's say, about 100MB of MP3 - to an SD card?
What's an SD card?
Alright. Wait around a bit, and it'll be done. Don't ask me when, because I'm terrible at guessing.
What? Me? Do you have any idea what you're asking of me? It requires careful planning: first see whether it all fits on your card, then calculating the time, and even then, I'm not sure if I'll do it. Maybe you should check back tomorrow; maybe I've gotten around to it by then, just maybe...
If you're using NAT for networking with your VMs, you need to use port forwarding if you want to access a VM from the outside network. This is a quick and dirty howto on how to do this in linux.
Fire up a terminal, and enter these commands:
VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/HostPort" 28080 VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/GuestPort" 28080 VBoxManage setextradata nvm3 "VBoxInternal/Devices/pcnet/0/LUN#0/Config/ssh/Protocol" TCP
In the sample above, I'm forwarding port 28080/tcp from the host to 28080/tcp on the guest. My VM's name is nvm3.
Got a link to this article about best practices on keeping your inbox as empty as possible. Very useful for those that get a lot of mail at work:
Namesys, the commercial developer of the Reiser4 filesystem, still has its website down. However, the source code and development is still going on, and can be retrieved at:
A good thing, because it would be a shame to lose such a good filesystem...
A collegue sent me this link. It's a list of most (if not, all) LiveCDs currently available, with links to their respective websites. Additionally, they have been classified according to functionality.
