If you have an HP Officejet Pro 8500, and have issues with your prints not maintaining the page layout (portrait or landscape), try enabling Print directly to printer in the printer properties.
Try downloading octy's GPSopt application. It's available free of charge at Google Market.
It resolves the slow signal acquisition of the Samsung's GT-i5801 (perhaps on other phones as well). I use it together with GPSstatus (also available at Google Market) and no longer have GPS signal issues.

It's pretty important when you retire your old computer that you securely delete the contents of your hard disk. Even with a regular format, it is still possible to retrieve a lot of data from the disk. DBAN can help you with that.

Finally got the final parts of my computer: the HD's.
Currently, I was using an old HD (a Maxtor 500GB) from my previous system. The idea with the new disks is to set up two Raptors in a RAID0 configuration. As Raptors are already fairly fast, the additional RAID0 - I've been using this method a few years already - should give it an extra edge.
I'm keeping the old HD in to have additional 500 GB of pure storage (like downloads and such, things that don't need the speed).
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.
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:
