If you've paid for 50mbit, demand a refund on your way out as well.

comment Why data rate must be “auto” while using Auto-MDIX?
My reading of it is that manual setting turns off the link pulses and therefore it's impossible to determine whether you've got the right pair or not, although I'm not entirely sure of that.

comment Why is dwm.exe using so much memory?
Thanks, this has made my computer much faster, especially in Eclipse. Note that it turns off 'Aero' and its transparent window effects etc.

comment Does HDD need to be screwed in?
More likely the case is out of alignment (cheap aluminium). In my experience it's fine to run them without screws until you forget when moving the computer, at which point it can rattle around and damage things.

comment Detect USB device connection (any device, not only storage)
I meant that you've provided an extra way to shut the machine down by anyone who can get close to it. A better way of achieving this sort of physical security would be to put it in a locked cabinet. There's also no guarantee that you can do an orderly shutdown before whatever attack is on the stick is carried out.

It's a great denial of service attack against yourself! What happens when the machine is powered on?
