comment How to install external antennas for mini PCI WiFi card in Dell Latitude C600
Typically, Dell uses white and black cables (and a third gray for cards with 'n') that are probably underneath the network card. The white cable snaps on to the socket labeled "main" and the black to "aux". Be careful you don't bend the sockets by misaligning them. Those multi-colored cables are something else.

comment Can't access Windows after linux mint update
Do you mean you can't boot into windows or you can't see the windows partition from Linux? If its a boot problem, try booting from a windows install disc, go into repair console and fix the boot manager. This will wipe out grub, but which when you re-install (again) will finally recognize the windows boot.

comment Image sequence handling in ffmpeg
@yoshco - you need to cd to the directory where your jpg files are first. If your directory was renamed with the above script, it must have ended with .jpg. If you want to keep the files and make a copy to a new directory, you can change the "mv .." part to a copy, like this: cp "$i" yourNewDirectoryName\"$counter".jpg

No, "mv" in unix renames a file. So there will only be one copy.

comment Overheating laptop: assign lm-sensor output to hardware component
Overheating that increases with a laptop's age, is more likely to be caused by dust and grunge blocking the air cooling path, in some hidden twisty corner or cooling grill. You didn't mention cleaning them.

comment Cannot install windows on a wiped drive
It seems that you are able to start the process by booting from a USB (at least to bootstrap the install of Linux). But then you say the USB is not readable during for windows install. Wouldn't this imply that the USB is readable, but the content/software on the USB drive is the issue. I'm mentioning this because its difficult to understand your description.

comment Laptop boots from old hdd after I installed a ssd
Yes you can effectively disable the hdd booting and keep all the data. When the hdd boots next, run 'msconfig" and go to the boot tab. Instead of deleting all entries, just set it to boot the SSD and remove the HDD. Next time it boots, if the HD boot manager starts up, it will jump over to finish booting on the SSD.

comment Laptop boots from old hdd after I installed a ssd
Did you set the boot menu in bios or on the SSD? Would setting the boot menu on the HDD to default to the SSD help?

comment Connecting Windows's Monitor to mac mini
Some remote desktop software works over serial ports, as if you were using a modem connection. I suspect its unlikely the Mac would allow this.

comment ZIP and copy backup from Windows server to Unix
Is the problem the resulting zip is too large to copy? Can you use the option to save the zip in multiple parts (at least in 7zip) to solve the pscp problem?
