comment Possible to rotate video (.MOV/H.264/AVC) losslessly?
Yea something like that- you have to save(export) it but the Mac version of iLife uses the full capabilities of quicktime to quickly "re-encode" it.. Quicktime on Windows is limited. I borrowed a buddues mac to do it, resonably quick. But i realised i made a mistake, and re-encoded a 1 and half hour movie on windows..... 2 days...

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
@ScottPack If you do a LLF on a SSF, the clustering(the wear leveing) gets reset and can never be reconstructed again - because the the clusters have been overwritten with new wear -leveling data, hence the data is gone. The same applies to HDD- if you take the PCB away from the HDD.. The rom contains the data clusters- with out that its just a pile of random bits.Just on an HDD there is no need to implement the wear-level method. Even the best forensics detectives will cringe when they have to recover data with out the cluster data

comment Possible to rotate video (.MOV/H.264/AVC) losslessly?
HI - using iMovie export.. will export it rotated.. on windows.. it does not re flag it.. So 1- Import into iMovie(on a mac) 2-Export to HD-HQ 3-Play on windows(will be rotated to proper aspect) Quicktime on Mac supports proper on the fly transcoding with minimum quality loss) Thats what i meant.

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
The goverment does not use hammers to destroy data- this answer is misleading and does not deserve upvotes. Using BIOS IMPLEMENTED LOW LEVEL FORMAT GUARANTEES TO WIPE DATA TO GOVERMENT STANDARDS! Then you can incinerate it if you want.. but even a cracked SMD can be recovered!! You can use HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool

comment Two network connections are available to Windows 7 — which will it use?
This is an interesting subject as i have wondered it myself.. it does seem to like wireless more than LAN.. and find it annoying when i disconnect WIFI during copy with LAN plugged it... it fails.. This does not happen on LINUX though.. thanks winblows...

comment Is USB Data + wire supposed to have grounding?
oh- he is using the USB hub as a power source... right. I thought he was using the cable on its own.. in that case.. what is the objective of this project.. jsut use a ac/dc power source..not a usb port

comment What stereo receivers allow you to play music from a USB hard drive?
What you want is a DLNA compatible stereo, it can play music directly from any dlna enabled device, like itunes, media player or your own custome 5terabyte server... and movies too.. to your PS3? or even Xbox.. any direction and protected content..

comment Is USB Data + wire supposed to have grounding?
I cannot see why the same wire would be better than the other. There obviously is a problem(or the red wires are another size) than the ground.. a wire is a wire and is constrained by amp and its thickness.

comment What does length, height and depth refer to on a PCI card?
If you are using this as a refence to desingin something.. it is a rally really reallllly bad sketch to use.. it is missing the front plate, missing the mini sized sizes.. i dont know my self if 106.8 is what is that? the front plate or the card.. find another source.. or get your own card.. Usually the PCB it self can be different heights. PS i dont long PCI card are in use anymore... Unless in servers

comment Just want to send emails from my Ubuntu Server. What simple SMTP server solution to use?
using postfix or sendmail is fine to send- by default it wont recieve emails but allow you too if you want in the future. Also easy to implement form webpage using php send mail features.

comment Not all ram usable?
You cannot trick the OS into thinking it has more ram- it would cause serious issues, and even if you could it would make it slow as heck. Usually the program you are trying to install has some sort of install.ini file with setting,like minimum ram, windows os, defautl directories etc- try to search for that.
