comment MySQL: Bind to more than one IP address?
You can bind to 0.0.0.0. You just can't route to it. If you're on Linux (or even on Windows, just install netcat for windows) try: in one terminal: nc -l 0.0.0.0 4321 and in a second terminal: telnet <IP of any interface your computer has> 4321 And it will connect to it.

comment “Raid 0 SAS” versus “2nd generation SSD”
Agreed that the best thing is to back up often, however the argument against N drives is pretty sound and it goes like this: say that you have a 0.9 chance (out of 1) that your drive will survive for 2 years (these number are purely fictitious of course). Now if you have two identical drives, you will have only a 0.81 (0.9*0.9) chance that both drives survice for two years.

comment Problem accessing Windows shares when using a domain
I've checked the given setting and it is set to 14 days. And it seem to work, since the prompt appeared the last couple of times. This is why I thought that the password is not expired (this, and the fact fact that it could be used to authenticate locally). Is it possible for the password to expire without the notification to appear and for the local login still to work?

comment Problem accessing Windows shares when using a domain
Thanks for the tip regarding the Kerbtray program, I'll start using it and the next time I observe the problem I will look at it. The Kerberos tickets expiring sounds like a good reason why the computer can't access resources anymore. However, shouldn't these tickets be renewed after logout/login or after a restart? Also, shouldn't these tickets be renewed when they expire (ie. if the computer has been running for long) or the connection with the DC is lost and the re-established?

comment Running Windows 7 XP Mode under Virtualbox
I didn't award the bounty to the particular answer, because technically, it is incorrect (see the updates to the question): the VT-x technology does support nesting, it is just that no currently available product implements support for it.

I tried with Workstation 6.5, but the guest (Windows 7) doesn't detect the availability of VT-x. (I've experimented with the different CPU settings to no avail...)

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll try with VMWare Workstation 6.5
