More on RSI/CTS

Since my initial post about my battle with RSI, a lot of people have gotten in touch with me one way or another to discuss their plights, and what has or has not worked for them.  My situation has also improved dramatically.

Why OS X Security Still Wins

More sudo vs. su

You can 'get root' using sudo or by using su, however, be aware that they handle things a bit differently.

Long Live Firewire

OK, perhaps I'm not that electrified by Firewire.  However, after the 5th generation iPods dropped Firewire, and then the first MacBookPro lost FW800, many people began to surmise that Apple was going to abandon Firewire altogether.  Well, today's announcement of the first 17" Intel-based MacBook should set everyone's mind at ease: the FW800 connectivity has returned.  I actually do use FW800 quite a bit, and it did irk me that it disappeared on the 15" MacBook.  So much for rev. 1.

HKLM
SOFTWARE
  Microsoft
  Windows NT
    Current Version
    Winlogon
