Enable Sound when booting in Safe Mode with Networking
What for you may ask?
Well, for one thing, it's *very* useful for Blind people who make heavy use of screen readers and need to boot into safe mode. I've made the solution available from a public folder on my website using the following link:

People often wonder how they can safely dispose of their old computers without it costing too much. Here's a guide to a totally free method that I came up with.
1. Remove the hard drive, put a drill bit through it until you hear the platters inside shatter. Toss it in the bin. 2. Run a cleaning rag around the case and make it nice and shiny. 3. Place the computers in full view on the back seat of your car. 4. Park car in a quiet public car park with the windows cracked just enough so it's easy to reach in an unlock one of the doors. 5. Go and have some lunch or dinner.
When you return, I can almost guarantee the computers will be gone.
