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 How can I merge a standard hard drive to a hard drive with the os on it to act as one?
If the second harddrive contain NTFS volumes then you can also mount those in a folder rather than via a drive letter.

comment Prevent auto-start up of application that doesn't have a native setting to disable it
For an application to start there must be an entry somewhere. Either in the users "Start, all programs, startup" folder, the global startup folder or in the registry. Check the two startup folders. If it is not there, either look for the 'run' keys in the registry or use something like ccleaner to show those keys (depending on your skill).

Hmm, tagged cmd.exe. Is this a question for both windows and linux programs in general?

comment How to get an unused (on another host) IP range
Best option I can think off: Start with a known set usually unused IPs (which will work in almost all cases) and allow the user to change those if it is needed.

comment How to get an unused (on another host) IP range
As long as the other PC will never connect to the Internet this is likely to work. (Likely since the host itself could still be using it since it is not connected to the Internet). Still, I suspect there is no one perfect answer. Without any control on what the host uses you can not 100% guarantee that you will not pick the same IPs. Changes on that happening might be equal to winning a lottery, but there is no 100% answer here.

comment Server with 2 NICs
You can use the normal Ethernet port and RDP in. No problem there. But the management port might allow you do do much more. E.g. enter the BIOS, partition disks from the RAID cards setup, select a remove iso on your computer to act as a virtual CDROM so that you can (re)install and OS. Access the PC after the OS has crashed/purple-screened. It simply is much more capable. But you can use both.

comment Dell Latitude E6430 Docking Station + Dual Monitor + Laptop Screen Tri-Monitor setup
The workaround would be an USB based graphics card (extra hardware an relative slow). The large dock with 2 DVI and 2 DP connectors is a much nicer solution (and is what I use for 3 screens).

comment How to get an unused (on another host) IP range
If you have no control over the local PCs then you can never guarantee not to run into a conflict. However you can avoid it as much as possible by limiting the scope. Using 1918 IPs will avoid all possible used IP addresses on the Internet (assuming that your computer is connected to the Internet). If it is not then you no no idea at all which IP will already been set.

comment What's the point of ASCII mode in FTP?
Does it? Or is that only in more recent bandwidth wasting versions. I always assumed that ASCII mode would transmit like this: "AAAAAAAB BBBBBBCC CCCCCDDD DDDDEEEE EEEFFFFF FFFGGGGG GGHHHHHH HHIIIIII IJJJJJJJ" rather than the one byte longer "AAAAAAA- BBBBBBB- CCCCCC- DDDDDD- EEEEEE- ..."
