comment How can I check if my system needs more PSU power?
@Sathya I think it's more an indication his PSU might be failing, personally. Hard drives and power supplies are the most mechanical and failure prone bits in any PC.

comment Web Hosting at home on Old Hardware
wait wait wait, if it's the "free tier" why is it $82? Also 613mb seems really tiny. Can you run the numbers for a saner amount of EC2 memory like say 2 GB?

@piotr partially, but I got it mostly resolved per my answer -- I just wanted to try tomato mostly, which does have QoS that works out of the box at least.

comment Why does Chrome on Windows 7 not show certain Unicode characters to me?
@xpda you're right; the character works in the address bar and the body on Firefox, and does not work in either place in Chrome. Fascinating.

@jjn it's a partial answer, which is generally allowed

comment Why does Chrome on Windows 7 not show certain Unicode characters to me?
that's fine, but I don't think the question was about the box, but why some browsers can display this particular character and others cannot.

comment dd-wrt router firmware QoS troubleshooting
I don't think inbound QoS is intended to ever work -- I remember reading this, somewhere. Also I ultimately did end up switching to the Asus RT-N16 and Tomato.

@dennis agreed, the SMART numbers shouldn't be viewed as 100% accurate

comment Restoring performance and estimating life of a used SSD drive?
@dennis I am a power user who lives in front of my computer almost 24/7; I suspect your wife is not. That's the only relevant data point here :) but the SMART data is kind of all over the map (and I suspect it was reset with a firmware update 9 months ago), see goo.gl/fDlqA and goo.gl/DF0sl
