comment Problem playing games using OpenVPN that use broadcast packets. Other games work, hosts can ping each other
The metric is used to prioritze routes when similar route exist. I don't know exactly why Windows doesn't take the given value for the metric, but I noticed that using a low metric like metric=5 creates a route that has the lowest metric if other similar routes exist. Therefore the new route will be prioritized for UPD broadcasts.

comment Parsing command line output delimited by underscore
What do you mean with "parse out of the string"? Do you want to remove the token3_4_token4_2 part or do you want to extract it?

comment How does “PROGRA~1” path notation work?
It doesn't happen to me. If I open C:\progra~1 the full folder name is also shown instead of the abbreviation. Besides: What is the intention of your question? What do you want to achieve?

comment Extracting final word in sentence through regular expression?
\w is actually equal to [a-zA-Z0-9_] (note the underscore). Perhaps adding - (hyphen) might be useful for sentences like This has to be re-evaluated.

comment Which RAID will be better for my use
@m4573r Yes, using RAID 1 with more than 2 disks and no striping you would effectively mirror the same data over all disks. I modified my answer accordingly.

Has the drive been properly disconnected in Windows? If you didn't safely remove the drive before disconnecting it in Windows the drive may not be writeable in Mac OS X or Linux.

comment cloning only the os (windows7)?
One approach would be to backup your personal data to a different drive, then delete it from your HDD, shrink your OS partition to fit the size of your SSD, and then following my answer below.

comment cloning only the os (windows7)?
Is your OS on a separate partition which fits on the SSD (good) or do you have one big 1TB partition (not so good..)?

comment How to access Steam chat logs?
Giving a 3rd party your Steam login details (which are required to gain access to your conversations) is very bad. Don't even consider doing it.

comment Apache2 Server configuration with subdomain
@AntonRoth You have to use a specific or wildcard dynamic dns entry (this has to be set up with your dyndns provider). Otherwise you can't use subdomain-specific apache configurations. I updated my answer accordingly.

comment How to split a text file into multiple text files
This works with gawk but not with awk (at least the awk on a default Debian system). awk's match function only allows two parameters, so your example gives a syntax error with awk.

comment How to split a text file into multiple text files
@terdon No, if you use STDIN you cannot pass the text file as parameter. However, script.pl < test.txt is better than using cat - I updated my answer accordingly.

comment Clone a 2TB WD Green internal drive with bad sectors to a 3TB partitioned external
@ron This is correct: With -r 10 ddrescue will try up to 10 times reading bad sections of your hard disk. After the 10th try it will continue. Also see the last example which I added to my answer.

comment When can authorized key user feature fail?
Does it ask for the password of your ssh user login or does it ask for the password of the private key file? Perhaps you just don't provide your private key correctly - are you using ssh-agent?

comment Partition used and available size in bytes
The actual size of what? Available file system space? Used file system space? Partition size? For partition size just use your parted /dev/sdd1 unit B print command, otherwise use df -B1 and don't sum up the used + available space but use the given total numbers instead.
