A third fascinating use case for Bitcoin is micropayments, or ultrasmall payments. Micropayments have never been feasible … because it is not cost effective to run small payments … All of a sudden, with Bitcoin, that’s trivially easy. Bitcoins have the nifty property of infinite divisibility: currently down to eight decimal places after the dot, but more in the future. So you can specify an arbitrarily small amount of money, like a thousandth of a penny, and send it to anyone in the world for free or near-free.

Quick easy fix for Insufficient Disk Space Warning When Attempting to Unpack and Install a Sage ACT! Update or Hot Fix. The error arises from the fact that the free space on the drive is a multiple of 4GB. The underlying issue is to do with a bug in InstallShield. To fix this create a file of 1GB, changing your free space available, to do so quickly, from a windows command prompt, on the drive affected run this command:
fsutil file createnew 1gbfile.bin 1024000
This creates a 1GB file. You no longer have free space that is a multiple of 4GB. Do the install, then delete the 1gbfile.bin file. More on fsutil on Technet.
