I'm a 19 year old university student from the UK who is learning my way around the programming world. Interested in physics, electronics and IT as well. My aim in life to get somewhere in programming or become an astrophysicist, and live into 2100 :D

I've made a few tweaks for jailbroken iOS.

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.

comment How do URNs work?
@grawity, @TheCompWiz, so it's like a custom protocol (can't remember the exact name), like on phones you have a tel:01234567890, it should be urn:tel:01296720498, but for some reason the urn: has been dropped (which is more logical given that we don't have uri:http://google.com)?

comment How do URNs work?
Typically though you get the extension in a URL which tells you what it is. Why not just write the ISBN number without the urn:, it's not like you could click on that and be taken to the book?

comment How do URNs work?
So how can a URN be a type of URI, as the definition of a URI is species how to access a resource. What's the point of a URN if a URL does the same plus some?
