I'm handling the image permissions process for an academic text that will be published with a major university press early next year, and this is one of the images that the author really wants to include. She originally found it on Facebook when a contact of hers posted it on their wall. I predictably haven't had any luck sourcing it via a reverse image search – the only relevant link that Google returned was to this Twitter account. My previous image licensing expertise has all involved credited photographers and artists, so this intersection with the intentionally anonymous politics of Anonymous has left me scratching my head. How and where would I go to extend my search for a high-res "original", and if obtainable, how would we go about clearing it for publication? Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm working on a project where I need to become familiar with the basics of Game Maker. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work on my system. Every time I try to run a game to test it, it goes through a compile process, flashes a window on screen which quickly disappears, and nothing actually runs. I've tried the official forums and the support form on the site, and neither one has been much help. I think it might be a problem with permissions, but even allowing the program to run as admin hasn't worked. Log files and system specs below the jump. [more inside]

Android apps seem to grab permissions that I have no desire to give them. My understanding is that the permissions per app are all bundled together: it's all or nothing. At least officially. Is there another way? Also, is there a privacy watchdog site that will help me find apps that actually respect my privacy and support/purchase them over those that do not? [more inside]

OSX Snow Leopard and Win XP File permissions are not playing nice. The Mac seems to be writing permissions so that users on the windows XP file server cannot change or move the files. It says that you have to have "domain/user" permission. Is there a way to set permissions on the mac side so that all content created on the mac will have permissions set to be open for all users to modify. Or anyone have any other ideas of what could be causing this problem? Thanks in advance for any advice.

How do I make a folder in the root of a shared network drive inaccessible over the network but accessible to that computer?
I have a 1TB secondary drive in my desktop computer that I have the root of shared over my local network. Inside are 5 folders, all but one of I want to be accessible over the network (one is a backup folder I don't want accessible to other network computers). Before I reinstalled my OS I had figured some way of changing the permissions so that if I was on the desktop itself I could get into the backup folder, but if I was on any other computer on the network I could see the shared drive and modify any folder but the backup one. I just recently reinstalled Windows Vista (Went from 32 bit to 64 bit) and now I can’t remember how I had set the permissions. [more inside]

I have a MacBook Pro running Leopard. It has two admin accounts. Some time ago I stopped using account "A" in favor of new account "B" (the reason behind the creation of account B isn't relevant to this question, however). If I delete user account "A," what precautions must I take to ensure the preservation of the files created under "user A," and what automatically happens to the ownership of those files?
