Will my 50 inch TV fit on a 60-100 inch mount?

Reading that question it seems like the answer is "Duh, No" but I figured I'd query the hivemind. I came into a free wall mount for an LED TV. The mount is rated for VESA 600x900 and says 60-100 inches. My TV is 50- Will this mount work or do I need to get a new one?

what is a good windows utility for accessing an iso file as a disk

I would like to be able to use an image of a CD/DVD ( a .iso file on windows ) so that I can access that image as if it is an actual cd. In the past, maybe 3 years ago or so, I used "Virtual Clone Drive" which worked pretty well but I don't know if this is still a good choice. [more inside]

What telescope should I buy?

I have approximately a $1,500 USD budget and want to buy a telescope. I am pretty sure I want a Cassegrain (SCT or Mak of some sort) for portability. And I am pretty sure I want a German Equatorial Mount (GEM) for ease of manually tracking objects and the potential of maybe one day exploring astrophotography. I had selected the Celestron VX 8" SCT as it seemed to give me everything I was looking for. Then I learned about Push-To as an alternative to GoTo and that has given me pause. [more inside]

SSD 1 partition, how to shrink?

I have a windows laptop with only 128G SSD hard drive, which is not partitioned, only with one partition C: . I want to install Linux aside from the original windows 7 so I can have double OS. There are about 15G empty space I gues it's enough. I think I need at least two partitions in order to do this. So I went to Computer Manage storage trying to shrink the C:, however, it shows 0 shrinkable space. Why is this? Should I run Disk Defragment? Anyone can help me out? And it's appreciated if you can give me some detailed step by step instructions, ie, how to mount partitions. I'm a newbie to linux and what I'm trying to install is elementary OS Luna. if you can share with me some introductory articles on the basics of the system adminiatraion, OS install stuff it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Need advice for a DIY iPad mount.

Need advice for a DIY iPad mount. I would like be able to mount my iPad to my bed's headboard. Optimally the mount would be flexible enough to allow me to position my iPad directly over my head for when lying on back, and allow me to bring it down a bit for when laying on my side. Any suggestions for materials to use would be appreciated (especially some sort of flexible material sturdy enough to handle the weight of the iPad)

My Maxtor drive (Seagate disk??) won't mount. Where should I send it?

My Maxtor Basics 1 terabyte external USB 2.0 drive no longer mounts. I have been through all the usual stuff with tech support (including disk management and device management) and I've tried it on multiple computers. Although the green light comes on when it's plugged into USB, apart from that it's not talking to the computer. There has been no strange noise, clicking, smoke or smell. Maxtor tech support say it's a failed drive. A data recovery company I phoned said it's probably damaged firmware but the data on the disk is probably safe. I'm nervous about sending it to a data recovery company because I seem to be looking at about GBP £179 minimum or maybe many, many hundreds more. Is it likely to be a matter of simply soldering something here or replacing something there, ie a job that I could take to a local geek? Or should I be looking to take this to a major data recovery centre? I'm in London, UK.
