comment Second wifi router for internal LAN file transfer - freeing up main internet wifi signal
Most of the machines are laptops and are taken home at night, taken to meets or moved around the office, its also quite a pain to run have lots of cables running around, as we dont have a raised floor.

comment Merging two incoming broadband lines for faster internet
Thanks - when you say 'you cannot achieve 20Mbps of speed' so if i load balanced as you described using something like this HERE Would that mean we can have two people connecting both using the full 10mbps download each, but neither one could use the full 20mbps.

comment Processing time / effort to decrypt stored passwords
Thanks @Darius, just reading through those now, one question when you say 'length' do you mean the length of the original password or the length of the encrypted string its turned into ?

comment See all past comand line activity / records
Thanks @Scott, this shows all the inputted commands, is there a way to get these with a timestamp so you can see when they were done, Is there also a more detailed command which would show the full CL interaction, ie. user inputs and the machines outputs.

comment Hooking up a 3rd screen to mac mini (mid 2011)
Thanks, i ended up purchasing an external usb video adapter, there not 100% the same as using just a dvi / hdmi as there is a slight lag in the connection between screen and machine, so any monitor running through one is a little slow, not unusable, but noticeable if your moving thing around quickly, fine for word ect, not so much for video

comment Does a software service pack install to the machines system files, or to the applications files
@Kazark, ive experimented with it a bit and it seems to be application based, i moved it from one machine to another just by copying the application/vectorworks folder (mac) and the service pack came along with it so it does seem to be application based.
