comment Why does clang generate unintelligible text when redirected?
And then there are the idiots who use isatty(stdin) to determine if they can output color codes.

comment Will a 100 Mbit/s wired router slow down my internal network speeds? (See diagram)
In 2016 buying a device only capable of 100Mbits/sec on its wired ports is a complete waste of money. You'll need more than that within the expected life of the router, if not today.

comment How much memory can a 64bit machine address at a time?
@MatBailie Eh? We left 16GB in the dust years ago. Today we're routinely building single systems with 2TB of RAM or more.

comment TL-WR1043ND v.1 (1.8) WAN to LAN port
@RonMaupin Depends on the router. Some have all ports on a single switch, and "WAN" is simply on a different VLAN than "LAN". I think this is such a router. In any case, "WAN" is quite fluid on third party firmware and can be moved anywhere.

comment What are all the Windows 7/8/8.1 updates (KBs) I must skip to avoid Windows 10 upgrading -and nags-?
Windows 10 will still be unfinished long after Server 2016 is released. In fact it will be unfinished forever. You may as well claim your free upgrade while you still can, and then immediately roll back (you get 30 days to do this) if you're determined not to use it. Your digital entitlement remains active and you can upgrade again whenever you wish.

If you had a true hardware RNG you could just use it directly.

Out of your control or not, it is relevant to the question. Doing something about that policy issue should be your first priority. When a C-level executive gets phished because of a stupid policy, you can be sure that they will at least reconsider it.

Unfortunately, you didn't put this message in Junk. Nor did you quarantine it, or simply refuse to accept it to begin with.

First, you need better spam filtering.

comment How can I constantly check that a python script is running 24/7 and is not down?
@JourneymanGeek Systemd pretty much makes supervisor obsolete. It does all of this and more. And there's no danger of it running out of memory...
