I am a curious person who always likes to learn more. I like solving puzzles and I like working with computers. Which means I enjoy some of the more complex questions on this site, as well as the answers which go into details and explain all facets.

comment Unable to connect to my router admin page
If the router allows this and you made backups: Yes. If the router allows other methods of access (e.g. ssh) then also yes. If you did not save them or if said methods are disabled or not supported, then no.

comment Is it possible to give any extension to linux executable file?
I read that as "unless it is a binary file in which case extensions do matter"). Different interpretation of the same sentence, possibly caused by a non-native reader (aka me).

comment Strange behavior with Windows 7 gaming PC - RAM, HDD, or other issue?
Do not bother with chkdsk. First read the SMART information from your drive.

comment download a big file and avoid data corruption
Also, why would getting it in parts prevent data corruption?

comment download a big file and avoid data corruption
ftp can resume a download. So you could start downloading it, abort after 256MB, restart FTP and resume with the next part.

comment How many subnets (and hosts per subnet) can you get from the network 10.0.0.0 255.255.240.0?
No need to consider ancient IP classes. We replaced them long long (15-ish years?) ago with CIDR and the OP already was given a network mask. So he knows which part is the base network and which part (s)he gets to sub-divide.

comment Is it possible to give any extension to linux executable file?
It does not matter for compiled programs either. It simply is part of the filename. Example: <pre> toad:/home/hennes>which bash /usr/local/bin/bash toad:/home/hennes>cp which bash . toad:/home/hennes>ls -l ./bash -rwx------ 1 hennes users 745832 Oct 21 14:07 ./bash toad:/home/hennes>mv bash bash.some_extension toad:/home/hennes>./bash.some </pre> Happily starts the bash binary despite changing the name

comment Disk utilization 100%, no read or write
Are you using disks with TLER enabled? If not a disk might have an error and it will be trying to recover. No time limit on recovering makes sense for a regular consumer disks since taking a long long time (even hours) is better than loosing data. On RAID you do not want this. Instead you want the disk to fail and the data to be supplied from a working disk. This assumes that the 3ware card does not just drop the while disk after it has not responded for a while. I am not sure which card you use and how that model acts.

comment The screen resolution of a window is too large
So you are not opening a window. You starting a program which opens full-screen and in a higher resolution than your monitor supports.
