comment SSH security breach, or authentication issues, have I been hacked?
If this is a brand-new MacBook Pro that Apple set up for you, take it back to Apple and have them look at it. It could be that they made a mistake and left some tool installed that they were supposed to remove, or it could be that they imported malware from your previous Mac.

@xsl, Yes, depending on the type of UPS, additional load can cause additional noise on the line, which could cause EoP interference. What happens to the EoP when you unplug the UPS with PC4 turned on? I cannot tell from your posts what the electrical configuration is with respect to Adapter4, PC4, the UPS, and PC5. Is PC4 plugged into the UPS? Can you move Adapter4 or the UPS to a different electrical circuit? How many different circuits are the 4 adapters on? Are they all on the same electrical phase? Best if all the EoP are on the same phase and the UPS is on a different phase.

comment Wireshark WPA 4-way handshake
@cYrus, if you are a 3rd party intercepting the traffic, then you are mounting a network attack (even if it's your network with your permission) and WireShark is quite reasonable in limiting the functionality of their tool to make it less helpful in mounting that sort of attack. The legitimate use case is where you have WireShark on the computer running one half of the session and are only listening into your own conversation. To make it work when 3 and 4 are missing you have to implement a lot of testing of "which key are we using now?" which is work I wouldn't expect WireShark to do.

comment Wireshark WPA 4-way handshake
@cYrus, waiting for 4 is essential, as encryption keys have to be changed simultaneously on both sides. If the client doesn't receive 4, it doesn't know that the base received 3. If the client doesn't receive 4, it sends 3 again (which triggers a resend of 4) until it either receives 4 or gives up trying to create the connection.

@Paul, that's sort of like saying "resume" isn't necessary after a "pause".

comment Damaged HDD recovery woes
What filesystem is on the failing drive? If it has NTFS, then that's the big difference. NTFS has complicated ACLs that Windows has to load before the OS will provide access to the disk. Linux doesn't feel obligated to respect NTFS ACLS and can mount without reading them, especially if the disk is mounted read-only.

comment How do I turn off the click sound when closing a tab in chrome?
Which versions of Windows and Chrome are you hearing this in? Is the tab close sound the same or different than the window close sound?
