comment How to remove unwanted tunnel adapter connections?
Yeah, I wonder too. Especially the powershell ones, you'd think they would be consistent.

comment What is longest Cat 6 cable I can run when I am just using it to connect a single user to a switch?
The google-fu to find other such bridges is "ethernet extender".

comment where are “temporary files” cleaned by Windows 7 Disk Cleanup?
In my case, I want to know because it's saying i have 5 GB of temp files and I want to know what they are before they are deleted.

comment How to remove unwanted tunnel adapter connections?
I'm well aware of the reasons for IPv6 and the IPv4 address exhaustion situation. This is why I made a point of commenting here; people ARE starting to use IPv6. Regarding ISPs, it's not much use for your ISP to be using IPv6 if the customers on their network aren't. (The exception is for huge networks which use IPv6 for their own internal management, e.g., comcast). Regardless, i'll stop now; anyone reading this can make their own decision.

comment How to remove unwanted tunnel adapter connections?
This isn't true. Lots of universities and government sites use IPv6, and more every day. So disabling IPv6 isn't necessarily the right answer in every case. Regardless, it is not an answer to the question that is posed - which is how to disable the tunnelling adapters. Also, if your local site isn't running ipv6, then your router doesn't have any use for it either.

comment How to remove unwanted tunnel adapter connections?
This answer tells how to completely disable IPv6. It does not tell how to disable only the tunnelling network adapters. In an environment with IPv6 connectivity you'd want to leave IPv6 enabled, but probably disable the tunneling adapters.

comment Where can I download Windows 7 (legally from Microsoft)?
I think it's a useful answer but I would add a disclaimer at the top that OEM license keys don't work - and a note that if windows came preinstalled on your computer, you have an OEM key.

comment Retrieve the HandBrakeCLI command from HandBrake GUI
Late comment - as of handbrake 0.10.1 the log file does show you everything that is passed to handbrakecli. One thing that the cli doesn't seem to do is parse the original file for chapter markers - those are passed to the cli in a .csv file, presumably generated by the gui or some other helper. Otherwise everything seems to be there.

on the other hand, if you ask about the building code, you are almost guaranteed to get inspected.

Ultra320 recommended in 2014? Does anyone even make those disks any more?

Lots of enterprise usage is byte-heavy but not IOPS-heavy. For example, compliance logs.

comment What is the unix command to find out what executable file corresponds to a given command?
RHEL6's which RPM (e.g., which-2.19-6.el6.x86_64) puts a startup file in /etc/profile.d/which2.sh. This is read by non-csh shells, including zsh. It aliases which to itself. So for zsh users in particular it overrides breaks the builtin which.

You make a good case against SATA port multipliers, but not against SATA disks. Using a 4-port SATA card, or hooking up SATA disks to a SAS controller, will nullify this example.

Try just screwing it in place with a single screw.

comment Why is GNU shred faster than dd when filling a drive with random data?
/dev/urandom is likely plenty fast - the dd block size is almost certianly the issue.

OK, my bad, i didn't realize windows 1.0 came that early.

comment What's the logic behind the “W” in Control+W to close a Tab in IE?
I can attest that command-w was used on macs to close the current window back before there was MS windows. "Stolen" might be a strong word, but certainly it's true that windows liberally borrowed from MacOS.

comment Rsync Being Naughty
rsync should never, ever, be updating the modification timestamp of the SOURCE files. But if it finds updated timestamps on the source, it will surely update them to the target.
