comment Is Windows PowerShell as powerful as the terminal of Unix/Linux?
People keep talking about these objects in powershell. Being used to cmd.exe and bash (or other shells) only, can you elaborate, perhaps with a simple example?

comment How do I edit photos to defeat facial recognition
@DanielRHicks Sure it's possible to make software to recognize faces better than humans can, but current software may use specific features (e.g. nose, ears, cheeks) which we can modify or paint over to make fun profile pictures while thwarting facial recognition software. Once everyone does this the software update is easy enough to apply, but until then it works.

comment How can I produce high CPU load on a Linux server?
@Stefan Interesting, I didn't know that tool existed. Still, it isn't installed by default on any Debian (based) distribution that I know of.

comment How can I produce high CPU load on a Linux server?
@oKtosiTe What Rich Homolka said is right, but it's not just that it's a bad thing to do, it's also useless because it'll block almost immediately and stop consuming cpu.

comment How to enable Windows Update over the internet for domain computers? (Code: 8024402C)
Change the key in regedit like @sorin said, then restart the Windows Update service (via services.msc). I was getting another generic error (80070057) until I restarted the service.

comment Is MAC compulsary for a NIC?
@deed02392 I wish too ;). They didn't exactly tell us that on their own. We just happened to come across it and, by some miracle, the teacher (who is incredibly bad at explaining anything to anyone) happened to know this one fact. We have yet to figure out something else he knows besides what he attempts to teach.

comment Is MAC compulsary for a NIC?
I think this question is a better fit on Superuser. Although a good question, it's not a question about information security. Your question may be migrated though (you can even flag it for migration), don't post a duplicate.

comment Why is my NTFS parition full when it's not?
@JdeBP Okay that explains at least that, thanks for the comment. Still, I can't figure out where the rest of the free space went... Running defrag /A /V it tells me the MFT is 352MB in size, so that's not occupying the space either. Any ideas?

comment Why is my NTFS parition full when it's not?
%TEMP% is located on the C: drive, and I would have seen it if it was occupying space on the D: drive. The hibernation file is also on C:, and again, I would have seen that.

comment Why is my NTFS parition full when it's not?
I know what the pagefile and hibernation file are, and I would have seen them if they were there (I mentioned I've set explorer to show hidden and protected files, and even checked with system level permissions). They're located on the C: drive. Also I've run a program similar to WinDirStat and all it can find is 43GB of data, no more. All the rest is empty space, according to that program.

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.
