@MaXiMuS170 wants to know what armored travel cases we use to keep our tech gear safe. Veronica beats on one. Ross has a 320 Gigabyte HD says its only 30 gigs after installing Windows, we've got a fix. Meanwhile, Andrew has more help finding space on your hard drive, a visual drive space analyzer called Space Sniffer which reminds us of WinDirStat, with less trippy colors. We list a half dozen more each for Windows and OS X in the video... and they're all free!
Nick writes that he's "planning on re-ripping my entire CD collection soon, and saw your piece where you recommend ripping to lossless audio (rather than mp3 - as mine is now). Which lossless audio format do you recommend for the job, and why?" While Hydrogen Audio lists a couple dozen lossless codecs... find out if we prefer FLAC or Apple Lossless in the video!

Marty wrote us this rather stern email, "Isn't Hak5 (sic) a "bad guy" when it comes to the security of the data on our computers. Why are you guys excited while interviewing the guys from Hak5? Should you not follow that up with possible measures to protect against these hacks?" We coulda sworn that's what Darren was on here doing, Marty
Brian noticed Veronica's reaction to the concept of printing checks... he's been doing it for at least 8 years and talks about the benefits and cons of prating out custom checks on your computer!
Seth writes: I also choked at the $300 plus price-tag on a replacement DVD for my Nav system in my Corvette. Cheap ol' me, I found another Corvette owner who HAD to have the latest 2011 data. So I bought his 2009 disk cheap to replace my 2005 version. Okay, it is coming on 3 years old - but it replaces 7 year old data." Great idea!
