How to travel between USA/Canada as a dual citizen

DualCitizenshipFilter: I was born an American citizen, the son of a Canadian mother. A few years ago I applied for and received my Canadian citizenship, and was provided with my Certificate of Canadian Citizenship. I have never applied for and do not have a Canadian passport. If I were to enter Canada now (by air or land) what do I say, what do I tell them? Can I just show them my canadian card and be done with it? What about coming back to the U.S.A.? Can it be done both ways without either passport?

Dual citizenship (US and CDN) and security clearance

Can a dual citizen (American and Canadian) get a Secret level security clearance in the United States? I'm starting to hear rumors that they'll ask me to give up my Canadian passport to get the security clearance. And - by giving up my Canadian passport are they asking me to renounce my Canadian citizenship to get the security clearance?

Dual External Monitors on a laptop

I want to hook up two external monitors to my laptop and have them span / act as a typical dual monitor configuration. I just want the laptop to serve as a workstation. I don't need the laptop's display. If I could have all three work that would be great but only as a bonus. What is the easiest way to acheive this. Laptop will be running Windows 7 and have a vga port, a hdmi port, and 3 usb ports. Can I simply hook one monitor up via the VGA port, and then buy on of these usb / vga thingies? I am not sure if Windows will be smart enough to span the display across the two monitors. Help me get two external monitors on my laptop.

How to get Vista to remember offset of 2nd monitor?

I use Vista with a 2nd monitor to extend the desktop. But, every time I disconnect and reconnect the 2nd monitor (which is at least once per day) Vista forgets the relative positional offsets and I have to reset them. (The offset setting makes it so the mouse cursor and windows move smoothly between the two monitors). Is there a program or way to get Vista to remember the offsets?

Dual external hard drive recovery

I have a Fantom Drive 500GB 7200RPM USB 2.0 External Hard Drive - MDU500. The connection for the power cable came loose from the board and nothing I tried could get it to power up. I removed the drives and connected them to a Linux box running Ubuntu 8.04. It saw the two drives as one and even knew the drive name I'd given it. However I cannot get it to mount. The error message in Linux suggests trying SoftRAID or dmraid. Dmraid didn't work. (At least I couldn't get it to.) The message also suggested trying to access the drives in Windows. Windows XP will also see the drive as one unit but wants to format the drive. Can someone provide me some advice or direction in how I might get this drive to a state where I can move my data onto another drive? [more inside]
