comment Routing IPv6 traffic through Debian pptpd into Hurricane Electric's IPv6 tunnel
That's the address on the 'other side' of the PPTP connection. If a packet needs to go toward the private subnet, this routes the traffic to be handled by the device handling this address. At least that's my understanding of what I have done; feel free to point out if that's not necessary and explain what's actually happening :-)

comment Linux volume on a Windows dynamic disk
This machine has been too pricey for me to waste resources on translation from, say, Direct3D API calls into OpenGL. Something I've had a bad experience with in the past as well. VM is a non-solution here -- I'm looking to have multiple operating systems run natively and play nicely, each having its own software RAID on its own chunk of the disks in the machine, providing at least a minimum protection against data loss. If I understand correctly, apparently Microsoft did not make that possible with LDM.

...and what about booting off of that partition? :)

To address your edit: You are probably right, and I find that sort of sad. (It isn't sad that you might right, but the scenario you're describing and what I described.) Yes - I did run into a tool that seems to read the LDM settings and then uses 'device mapper' subsystem to enable mounting of the partition. But, Microsoft doesn't want ext{2,3,4} partitions on an LDM-managed device, so it's primarily usable for accessing NTFS. And even if it did allow it, what about OS X?

comment Linux volume on a Windows dynamic disk
To address the suggestion to use a VM: Primary reason I have Windows installed at all are games, and use of software RAID is there to provide extra redundancy for any 'user' data that may accidentally end up on it, and for savegames. So VMs are a move in the wrong direction.

comment Linux volume on a Windows dynamic disk
I am not looking to resize dynamic volumes. To clarify, I am interested in shrinking the LDM metadata GPT partition and the LDM content GPT partition to leave room for non-LDM GPT partitions.

comment Run rsync with root permission on remote machine
How about ssh -t [other options] instead of playing with stty -echo?

comment Run rsync with root permission on remote machine
@MountainX It'll be visible in list of processes (e.g. ps aux). Test: rsync -R -avz -e ssh --rsync-path="find / > /dev/null && rsync" server.example.com:/ /tmp/example, then open terminal on remote machine and ps aux | grep find. find / is used only as it's the first thing that came to my mind with large execution duration.

comment How to mount an NTFS partition read-only in Windows?
Under Windows 8.1, mountvol /n did not prevent drive from being automounted. One should consider using this beforehand: petri.co.il/configure_usb_disks_to_be_read_only_in_xp_sp2.htm

comment Identifying Windows service generating network traffic
Thanks for TCPView -- I ran into it before posting the question. Luckily, even Resource Monitor was able to display the process information related to network traffic, but TCPView is made of pure awesome to someone used to UNIX tools. The tasklist /svc suggestion, however, is definitely what I was most interested to know, so I'm more than happily accepting the answer.

comment Identifying Windows service generating network traffic
Observe the GET request itself. Microsoft appears to use the same virtual host name to distribute certificate revocation lists. Also, stopping the Windows Update service did nothing to stop this particular request to .216 host, nor the actual large download from .215.
