Hi, I'm Cole. Here's my Twitter. I've been programming since I was 8. My first big program I made is iDecryptIt. Seeing the success, I started having bigger ambitions, and so, in the spring of 2013, I founded Hexware.

comment Why do English characters require fewer bytes to represent than other alphabets?
Your problem is that you are using UTF-16 or something and not the better, more space-saving UTF-8.

comment What can I do with .chk files in FOUND.000 folders?
You can always open them in a hex editor and look at them. If you can tell what they are (like a text document you were typing up), then you don't need to go through the trouble of worrying if something is lost.

revised Does Distance From the Router Affect Internet speed?
Better title; Fixed up grammar; Removed [speed] as it's ambiguous; Removed [speedtest] as it doesn't have to do with SpeedTest.net - there was just a test

comment Why is Disk Utility / diskutil taking so long to zero out data?
My dad's work provides him with a Mac, but recently, they upgraded everyone's. He tasked me with wiping the drive. I booted up to Disk Utility and chose 7 pass wipe (confidential stuff is confidential). The 500 GB drive took roughly 10 hours to wipe.

@paranoid That last part... I can't tell if it's a typo or a joke. Anyways, what if you took it apart before putting it in? Like unscrewing it and separating the case, membrane, etc.

comment What settings to use when making 7zip files in order to get maximum compression when compressing PDFs?
What's different about using PeaZip? It's just a GUI wrapper around 7zip and many other tools

comment How do I check CPU temperature in Windows 8?
I know it's Windows 7. I'm just wondering what program saves the shadow with the screenshot.

comment Minecraft Keeps Replacing JAR
Maybe backup the old ones, then after it replaces the original files, copy the new JAR into the backup. Then delete the new ones, then move the backup to the original location.

What program did you use to capture the screenshot with the shadow behind them? I see them everywhere, but I can never find a program that does.

comment Is a .lnk file a symbolic link or a junction?
A good way to confirm this answer is to drag a .lnk file into a text editor. You see the link file instead of the target file.
