comment scp checks existence in the wrong order
scp's primary purpose is not to validate the existence of files, but rather secure file transfer, so it makes sense that it prioritizes making a secure connection, before file operations. I would recommend reading the RFC for SSH for a fuller understanding of the technical details of the protocol and it's reasons for working as it does.

comment In Google Chrome browser, why does Gmail use so much of the CPU when hardware acceleration is enabled?
"Hardware acceleration" is kind of vague about what kind of hardware it using, but I've always assumed it was graphical in nature, so I doubt there is much gain to be found in gmail, where most of the heavy lifting it is doing is going to be network traffic.

comment ssh without using the user's default shell
When you say you tried writing a custom subsystem, it sounds like you configured one in sshd_config, but didn't actually write the necessary source code within a custom sshd binary to support it, correct? My hazy recollection from working on a project forked from OpenSSH is that actual coding and recompling is required, not just configuration.

comment Cannot enter Sudo password when controlling Linux Mint with Synergy
Have you tried opening a simple text editor on the Mint box, and seeing if you can enter your password there without issue? Some special characters might not be making it through, and it would be the easiest way to tell if the password is getting sent correctly or not....

You can have more than 256 by starting a separate instance of sshd, with it's own config file and ports-list.

To answer your "Do I have enough power" question, we need to know the wattage of your power supply, and the power ratings for the existing drives.

DirectSync is not part of the free product. The free sync provided by Cubby requires space in their cloud, also not free, past 5gb.

comment Hard Drive not recognised by BIOS and no visible damage on PCB
It is unlikely that you would be able to see any fault with the naked eye, beyond a blown capacitor. A chip that has been fried by a static charge is not going to look any different than a functional one.
