comment How to explain IPv6 in under 30 seconds
@MichaelHampton It's one of those great deals where the hosting comes with the design. "Want to change hosting? Build yourself a new website." Note that I didn't know at the time, I would have told him it was a bad deal.

comment How to explain IPv6 in under 30 seconds
@techie007 I've seen that one, but I'm not looking for a tutorial. I'm trying to explain IPv6 very briefly to someone who has no concept of what the internet is made of. In fact I've written an IPv6 tutorial myself, but it's pretty long and way too much information to tell someone in a normal conversation.

comment Limit which fonts Chrome can use
Thanks for your answer! It's blacklist-based (blocking ugly or incorrectly rendered fonts) instead of whitelist, but at least it's something. I haven't tried it yet, but it looks okay so I upvoted ;)

comment Using UDF on a USB flash drive
Thanks a lot for the follow up. It's rare, ifnot the first time, that I see a smart question which is then elaborately answered by the OP after a few days/weeks of testing. Great job, thanks!

comment Where can I see what caused Windows to make the 'hardware disconnected' sound?
Disconnected all devices, I had. Still made that sound, the laptop did. In the garbage, the laptop was put. Survived, the laptop has not.

Note that this doesn't work with sudo. You really need to use the su command first to get it working.

comment What does the encryption setting of uTorrent do?
-1 what kinda answer is that when you only cite what we already know? It doesn't even answer the second question which is by far the most interesting.

comment Limit which fonts Chrome can use
@Carsten Never, unfortunately. I mostly use Readability's bookmarklet when fonts get really bad. Good to know I'm not the only one with this problem though! But why don't you upvote the question if you want to know the same? That's what the voting scheme is for after all.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite of having a considerable amount of free memory?
@DanNeely Avoiding using unnecessary resources speeds things up, it doesn't slow things down, so that quite misses the point imo. Besides, if 2gb is obsolete then I think around 60% of the users in the western world (or 95% in other countries) are running obsolete systems. Definition of obsolete: "No longer produced or used".

@AllInOne Right, hadn't taken x64 into consideration.

comment Why is my computer really slow despite of having a considerable amount of free memory?
Since when is 2GB RAM not enough for Windows 7? Can't say that it works fast, but I'd even argue two Windows Server 2008 virtual machines can work on a 2GB Windows 7 host.

comment What do i look for while buying a mouse?
Right. I don't really notice the difference between my 800DPI mouse and a 3500 one (besides the increase in cursor speed), but that makes sense.

comment What do i look for while buying a mouse?
I don't understand how DPI is of any importance. Can't you just set the mouse speed higher or lower in your OS or the game? Isn't the maximum trackable acceleration much more important (so that the mouse keeps track of where it is even when moving it very fast, for example in games to turn around and shoot instantly)?
