Each time Google Chrome gets updated, it leaves behind the old version of Chrome. While this comes in handy when you have to downgrade, it also builds up (precious) hard disk space. You can, however, manually remove the old installation files.
Google Chrome is installed by default in your local profile folder, at:
In that folder you will find the main executable (don't remove that) and the different versions of Chrome.
You can simply delete the lower version numbers so that only the highest version remains. This clears out on average 80-100 MB per folder (although it could very well be much more).
A neat plugin for Pidgin is Lock-n-Roll.

So what's it's not called the iPhone 5? It's only a name, invented by those spreading rumours in the first place. It never was announced by Apple at all. So cut the cr*p and move on...
For those using the Quick Launch bar in Windows 7 and have "misplaced" their Show Desktop and Window Switcher icons, can download the shortcuts in the attached archive to replace them.
When running a Synology, take care when you require (or don't want) public (a.k.a. guest) access to shares.
To allow access, first check whether the guest account is not disabled. I found out it was disabled after joining the device in a Windows domain. Disabling the account is a good way to effectively cut off all public access.
If you require guest access on some shares but not on all, be sure to set the ACL for Guest in Privileges Setup to No Access for shares that have to be locked down. Not explicitly setting this will allow public access on that share.
