comment Can't change drive letter to previously used drive
yes, I had to reboot to remove D otherwise it'd be a live drive removal.. I guess that's allowed? I'm not ballsy enough to rip a drive out while the system is running!

comment How can I hide my IP without using a proxy?
I believe forms of this used to be possible in the early days of the internet, but the routers stopped allowing oddball traffic because as you stated, it doesn't make much sense and is often malicious. I need to dig up a citation on that, but it'd be mostly of historical interest.

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?

comment dd-wrt router firmware QoS troubleshooting
@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.
