Just a geek :)

Beware of wauzers, for they are crafty, and like cheese.

I'm a singaporean computer geek with a very wierd set of majors, and a odder sense of humour. Many people are convinced I'm an ultra intellegent dog, which I neither confirm nor deny. My avatar is a small organic canid of slightly uncertain heritage and a lot of attitude called Ash, who happens to be my public face on the internet.

I'm also one of the top users on superuser. While my answers and edits have hopefully gotten better over the years, there's occasions where I'm uncertain whether my edits are of acceptable quality or not. When this is the case, I rely on my cybernetic counterpart, Aibobot to do edits. Feel free to accept or reject these edits as you would those done by a new user.

'How heavy is a piece of string?' - The answer really depends on the length, format and resolution of your videos.

comment CentOS 7 and X11R6 Installation
Pretty much. That would simplify things hugely. Then you can possibly use x forwarding with the older tools, I suppose

comment Can't get iTunes to pair with/play through my Harman/Kardan Bluetooth Speaker
Isn't it Harman/Kardon? I suspect you need to pick that as your default output, but I'm not familiar enough with itunes or bluetooth speakers to tell for certain.

comment email - Can running your own authoritative DNS server mask a dynamic IP hosted email server from being blacklisted?
Just get a cheap VPS and run your email server off it.

comment Can I do a clean install of Windows 10 preview
I'm guessing the usual suspects - rufus and the windows 7 download tool should work perfectly well. Rufus worked for me when I tried it on real hardware.

The disk activity tab of resource monitor would show you this. I'm not aware of a cli equivilent of this. At the very least it tells you what is using the disk

comment How can I get a list of IP addresses that connected to an Apache server?
See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_network and tools.ietf.org/html/rfc1918 . That's exactly what they are. If you're certain they arn't RFC1918 addresses. something else is fishy. Maybe spoofing
