comment Does a 500 watt power supply always use 500 watts of electricity?
...thereby proving that a power supply doesn't constantly draw its max load. Not sure why I was downvoted for providing anecdotal evidence directly answering the question.

comment What sysadmin things should every programmer know?
I disagree with you Keith. If this question has been around for four months, and you're the first to ever say that, then maybe the community disagrees with you as well.

Basically, I am not finding a 630 event ID in either log. How would I find out what event I should be looking for? I'm a newbie when it comes to querying Active Directory events.

If it's a Contact instead of a User, would it have a different error code?

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
If I have to resize the partition using gparted, why wouldn't I just use gparted to also copy the partition? That's what I ended up doing, and why I accepted the other answer.

in addition to setting a flag on the partition to boot, I also had to run Windows Repair on the Vista setup disk, probably because I forgot to uncheck the "round to cylinders" checkbox. Ah well, it all worked in the end.

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
tried using -k1, create partition table proportionally. process started, error message saying "cannot restore image from to smaller disk", but then continued to start to copy. I quit the process before anything happened, but I'm not sure if the image error applies to me since I'm doing a disk copy. I'm thinking Clonezilla will not work unless I first use gparted or something to resize my current partition down to under 200 GB. Any thoughts?

Halfway through the Clonezilla process, I get this message: ATTENTION ... (2) Clonezilla will not restre an image from a large disk (partition) to a smaller disk (partition). However, it can restore an image froma small disk (partition) to a larger disk (partition). (3) If you do NOT want Clonezilla to create a partition table, check -k: ... I guess now I need to research partition tables to see if reusing the partition table from the larger disk would be bad...

comment Problems cloning a hard drive
looks like it would work, but I'd love to see a bit more instructions with it... the screenshots are the closest I could find so far, and they didn't go into disk cloning. Ie - will it support going to a smaller disk? Will it work with the disk connected via USB?

Is IPCop something that runs on a machine sitting between the router and the cable modem? If so, what OS should I run? How easy is it to set up?
