comment Route some websites through VPN to access US websites
It really depends on how many sites your talking about? If it's only a few then set your default gateway in Canada via the normal ISP, then find the IP address of your 'selected sites' and route them using a static route via your VPN tunnel. There will be some maintenance to keep it working, however it's fairly simple.

Didn't realise assuming was a bad thing when made clear and covering both possibilities.

Are you able to just remove the hard drive and place in the destination? this would be the fastest speed, transferring over the motherboard backplane.

comment MacBook Pro laptop cooling pad DIY
If there are no holes there and your just trying to cool the metal my assumption would be to blow air at it, as this would be directed.

Are you not able to just put your hand under your mac book to judge which way the air is flowing? Then replicate this with your stand

comment Is there any way to monitor the health of my Internet connection?
You would probably be better off enabling ICMP on your router, and then pinging the public IP address from a service like Pingdom.

If your really against changing the password then yes that seems like a valid option.

comment Where to plug in the PowerSwitch on an ASRock K7S41GX motherboard
If this is just a power switch it doesn't really matter most of the time, as it will work either way. It would only matter if it's something like a LED light, try one way then the other. Although I would guess red is the power, and white is the ground.

comment Why does my mouse get slower and slower?
Which mouse benchmark program was it? Did you use it when you first got the mouse so you can compare results?

comment Networking issue, access service indirectly
The administrators use some kind of filtering because they are blocking P2P connections, it's more than possible that there is miss configuration on this filter which is blocking your traffic, or your traffic is causing a false positive for P2P and been blocked. Either way they probably aren't going to help as you have said, so you need to find a way of getting around that filter, using something like a VPN tunnel. If it works over a VPN tunnel or at another location then it's almost certainly the network configuration. Another thing to do would be capture the network traffic with wireshark.
