comment Point of subnets
I understand that NAT is for allowing multiple hosts to use one public IP address, and subnetting is splitting the address in network and host parts. I know how NAT can allow you to have more hosts that public IP addresses, just that article and my lecture slides implied subnetting is useful in somewhere for having more hosts on your network.

comment Resume transcoding a video with ffmpeg
I have tried without audio, and I hage tried skipping to the second part without transitioning from the 1st but it still doesn't play. Perhaps if I trim the first part by a minute or two before concating it?

comment Figuring out how many megabytes go into gigabytes?
so then why didn't the standards people use the already existing convention. Like unless there's some like latin meaning behind the prefixes it seems it's just stupidity on the standards people's behalf.

comment Figuring out how many megabytes go into gigabytes?
Why is 1KB so massively commonly used to refer to 1024 bytes, when the standards say it's 1000 bytes? What made the standards people come up with something that contradicted such a widely used thing.

comment WiFi extender, extending a cellular hotspot
@slow_excellence, I know the Phone hotspot's range is small, that's why I bought the extender. The signal from the extender itself is quite strong (as in my laptop shows all the bars). The walls are quite thin and basically just plaster board, and the house is quite small. I would completely understand if the WiFi signal from the extender was weak in bedroom, and the local connections were slow. But they aren't, it's only connections to the internet.

comment Laptop won't boot from anything except HDD
Ok, so it booted to ubuntu on USB stick, where I updated the master boot record, and checked the ntfs file system, which had no problems, and it had no effect on booting to windows.

comment Why do laptops need fans but tablets don't?
I can install Quasar on my jailbroken iPad 2, and it doesn't slow down significantly. But my gran's netbook (3 years old) takes for ever to start Chrome, nevermind running 2 things at once. Is it because desktop OS have been around for ages on many different systems and become "bloated", whereas Android, WP, and iOS are more made for the latest chips?

comment How to install a private user script in Chrome 21+?
You have to quit chrome completely, not just open a new window from the icon. (this is rubbish of Google btw)

comment Will the removal of NAT (with the use of IPv6) be bad for consumers?
The answer provided here doesnt overlap with the answers in the question that is given as the reason to close. But at least someone answered the question before you trigger happy people got to it. Once again on Superuser, closing the question has done absolutely nothing...

Bad is a word in the dictionary, what is there to define? Will IPv6 actually mean the removal of NAT? How will IP addresses be assigned?

This is not about the progression, but when it's finished progressing, which should be well documented. Since when is waiting for a problem to occur rather trying to get ahead of it, a better option?

comment How to choose a modem/router/WAP based on it's various features?
It's not exactly 8 months, but roughly after 8-10 months the connection slows down (not just the internet speed, but like file transfers between local computers) and then it will just stop working every hour or so, and require it to be restarted. (it's been 2 speedtouchs, 2 Belkin N1 Visions, and a Belkin G+ MIMO)

comment How can I have Windows 8 go to the desktop by default?
@TomWijsman, well he probably means that the new features are marginal compared to how big an addition the Metro UI is.
