comment Allow users to remotely modify Windows Scheduled Tasks without granting them log on rights
This surely works, but the OPs requirement included "without granting them the right to log on", which precludes making the users members of the Administrators group - you effectively can't revoke administrative rights from administrators.

@MichaelKjörling you are right, although bad sectors due to surface defects seem to be more common.

comment Best way to copy millions of files between 2 servers
@BenjiXVI the bottleneck will surely be the CPU as gzip will only ever execute on a single core. You can reasonably expect around 30 MB/s with the default compression level of 6 - but this will not max out Gigabit Ethernet.

revised How can a computer/OS tell what kind of RAM is in the machine?
Confused SMBIOS with SMBus (the latter is just a hardware 2-wire bus)

"This is so wrong on so many levels". +1 for mentioning the Windows way of querying the data though.

comment How can a computer/OS tell what kind of RAM is in the machine?
My point is that your wording is inaccurate to the point where it gets easy to misunderstand. WMI can interface with SMBIOS but it is not in any respect its implementation (which resides on the hardware / BIOS side and not within the OS).

Note that WMI is able to query DMI/SMBus information but is not the Windows implementation thereof. Additionally, dmidecode which purely queries and decodes DMI information is available as a Windows port too.

comment IP forwarding on the same network
what is connected to eth0 - the rest of your internal network? If so, then yes, you want to bridge eth0 and wlan0 but in this case you should leave eth0 and wlan0 unconfigured and only configure an ip address for your resulting bridging interface - br0 (which would probably be DHCP-configured then just as your eth0 interface was before you added the Wifi config)
