Bill Gates Acknowledges Ctrl+Alt+Del Was a Mistake
The reasoning I always understood to use the Ctrl-Alt-Del for login/unlocking was that it was difficult to hook so if you pressed it you were certain that what you were then typing your password into was an actual login screen rather than some application that looked like the login screen that was designed to steal your password.
Does Grammar Matter Anymore?
...disdain for the receiver, wether intentional or not.
Whether. Or was that intentional?

Don't get me started on "preexisting"
According to Merriam-Webster it's first known use is 1585: http://mw1.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/preexisting
So it has been around for a while unlike most buzzwords.
UK ISPs Ordered To Block Pirate Bay
Music lobby group, the BPI, welcomed the move, saying music creators 'deserve to be paid for their work just like everyone else'
I agree. It's just unfortunate that when you buy mainstream music only a very tiny percentage goes to the music creators. Most of it goes to record label fat cats and towards lobbying for shit like this ban.
Server Names For a New Generation
If the server is suitable to be used for more than one purpose then each purpose should be in its own virtualised environment which will have its own purpose defined name.
With how easy virtualisation is these days there is no need to go mixing different functions within the same os environment which can cause all sorts of random problems as different software reacts with each other. Separate them out using virtualisation making it easy to move to new hardware, easy to retire old things no longer needed, easy to re-image if some software plays up.
Early Ivy Bridge Benchmark: Graphics Performance Greatly Improved
Does GPU performance matter? Are people using integrated graphics for graphics intensive things? It seems to me that integrated graphics performance has more than exceeded that required for normal desktop graphics for a while and anyone who is doing anything seriously graphically intensive is using a discrete graphics card. Am I wrong?
The IT Certs That No Longer Pay Extra
(...example? Clicking "cancel" when Task Scheduler demands a password in Server 2k8 will lock out an AD account in a hurry. Neat little bug, but one of the zillions of subtle things a sysadmin would know, but an MCSA would not.)
My sysadmin experience says that would lock out the account because you have set up a task to run as an account but not provided a password for that account. Therefore when the task tries to run the password the task scheduler provides (null) does not match the account password. Or do you mean there is actually some bug that causes the account to get locked simply by clicking cancel?
Illegal Film Downloading Up 33% In the UK
Not sure what you mean by "dynamically move my Steam install off my drive that's filling up" but it is very easy to move your steam folder to a different drive.

Can Ubuntu Linux Consume Less Power Than Windows?
You're getting confused by regular tubes. The Internet is made of special tubes that have an infinite number of sides. It's because there are so many sides it looks like it only has one side like regular tubes so it is an easy mistake to make.
Australia's 2 Largest ISP's Start Censorsing the Web
Plus if you don't change they will think that their actions are acceptable. If at the point you contact them to cancel their service you tell them why and enough other people do likewise they may realise that filtering isn't acceptable and stop doing it.
FBI Seizes Servers In Virginia
This would seem to be the case as DigitalOne can't even get their own website back online.
It's pretty good going of the FBI to completely disable a companies ability to operate just to get the data of one of their clients.

In Isk We Trust: the EVE Online IskBank Exposed
Except to level up the particular skills required per ship class can be as simple as:
1. Log in
2. Set skill training
3. Log out and go do something else until the skill finishes training
With the ability to now queue skills to train so long as the last one to start fits within a 24 hour skill queue length there is no longer a need to log in for skill training more than once per day. The last time I actively played was probably a year ago and yet I haven't missed a single second of "levelling up" in that time.
No hours of grinding away doing repetitive tasks in order to level up as many other MMOs do.
How a Leather Cover Crashes the Kindle
I bet he gets lots of readings at about 2 meg-ohms. Reminds me of this guy I know who when he got his first multimeter thought the thing was faulty when he got sparks trying to test the voltage of a battery "with it on the A setting."

MS Design Lets You Put Batteries In Any Way You Want
Indeed. I looked at the pictures in TFA (read it, you're kidding right?) and found myself thinking, "What was that thing I had when I was a kid that had contacts that looked like that?"
