Here are some pages that don't currently fit anywhere else on the site.

Some screenshots of a recent email I received - one of many that are similar - and explanation of why emails like this should be disregarded at a glance.
Filtering web content with OpenDNS

Make nvidia-settings sticky in KDE
Set nvidia-settings to run at startup. (This is strictly Linux stuff.)
Office 2007 Converter
Having trouble opening a document that someone just sent you in email?
