windows upgrade with a linux partition

My computer is dual booting Windows Vista and Ubuntu. I have gotten a Windows 7 upgrade disc and want to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7. Will the upgrade have any effect on the Linux side of the partition or will it just change the Windows side of the partition from Vista to 7 leaving Ubuntu unscathed? What happens with GRUB?

Job title for high-level software developer

Help me choose my job title. I'm a software engineer and I'm transitioning from a position where I both manage projects and write code, to a post-management position where I'm not directly responsible for any particular projects but provide overall ideas and advice for the architecture, coding practices, features, and anything else about the system. In addition, I'll still be hacking code on whatever parts of the system I find interesting. It's both more and less than a "software architect" since I'll be doing other things as well and I won't actually be responsible for directing the software architecture, but any ideas and advice I have will be listened to. It's kind of a "do whatever I want" dream job. The CTO proposed "principal software engineer" which is good and conveys the general idea and seniority, but I'm hoping you can help me come up with something better. I'm looking for a professional sounding title, rather than something quirky (although if you have a really great idea for a quirky title, go ahead and post it because I'll enjoy it).

Should I turn off the SRS light on the instrument panel on my 2003 Honda?

The SRS light on my 2003 Honda Civic comes on when the ignition is turned on and remains on while the car is being driven. I googled this and understand that Hondas as well as other cars have this problem. I can take it to a mechanic to have it diagnosed and repaired. Or I can turn it off myself which I'm tempted to do since it appears that Honda has a faulty system that has nothing to do with the airbag --just the light. But there is a small part of me that wonders and is concerned if something could be wrong with the airbag. Does anyone have experience with this?

Install Linux or windows without a cd drive or usb just direct access to the hard drive.

Install Linux or windows without a cd drive or usb just direct access to the hard drive. I have an old cf-29 toughbook by Panasonic that I've had for years. I'm trying to resurrect it and for the life of me cant remember my own cmos password. Aside from possibly nuking the bios password which will be near impossible due to the NATO standards this notebook was built to. I was thinking I would just try to install an OS directly to the hard drive and simply transplant it back into the toughbook. [more inside]

How do I shutdown my Linux PC by email?

On my Windows machine I used rules in Outlook to do various things such as shutdown my system remotely via email. I have switched to Linux (Mint 8) and would like to be able to do this with my new OS. Unfortunately I have not been able to find an email client that would enable me to execute an application/script/command based on a rule/filter. Thunderbird has filters, but only for sorting emails, not running commands. Any ideas?
