Can you check in chrome what are your regional settings? Can you access the page with web proxy like hidemyass.com? does it work this way?

comment How do I fix my USB drive to get its original 8GB size back?
This is a really good answer. I've always prefer to do all by my self not with third-party tools that i do not have control of. Thanks.

comment Quick way to (reasonably strongly) en/decrypt a few files
You should mind that relying on a windows certificates does not guarantee you complete safety or integrity of data you want to keep safe. That is because the admin 'key' on windows systems opens everything encrypted with user keys on this system. Hence, your admin could potentialy decrypt your 'safe place'. You did not mentioned the 'online part'.

comment Quick way to (reasonably strongly) en/decrypt a few files
incorrect. steganography is hiding one set of data in another set of data without causing disturbance in the second one. for example hiding text as color offsets in bitmap graphic. it is still in clear text once you know where to find it. You can encrypt the data before embedding it. Steganography would not be my choice as size limitation defeats the purpose of securing a medium to large amount of data. True crypt has command line parametres. I would write a script using wget to download the file and decrypt it with tc.

comment can not copy big file to usb device
1. You can monitor read and writes to the device to see when the actual transfer finishes. 2. try to flush the buffers before unmounting. use command sync couple of times.

comment Windows 7 calculator and numeric keypad not functioning properly
Try to use both + keys, one next to num keypad and one with = sign. For me num keypad with Calculator is working fine. Check what kind of keyboard you have setup in the regional settings and if the num Key is turned on. And check if this is not working only with calculator - simultaneously check in the notepad.

comment Incoming connections to port 25
You need to allow incomming connections to port 25 on loopback interface 127.0.0.1 to your server. In order to allow your server to send/relay this message to other mailing server, You need to allow connections to port 25 from your server - meaning outgoing to 25.

comment Incoming connections to port 25
if you want to send emails from your own server and you want to use SMTP protocol then port 25 should be opened. But if you are sending only localy to your server - so you log in to server and send email from server's local account - then you should open the port 25 only on 127.0.0.1 interface so it will not be accessible from outside of the server. If You are sending emails from other computer via this Exchange server using SMTP - then you must open port 25 on interface with external IP address - for example eth0.

you need to create routing rules on laptop1 if it must be default gateway for other computers. If connection between laptop2 and laptop1 is passing through router, the router needs to have a specific routing rule setup as well - otherwise it will pass traffic to internet using its own default gateway.

nope. outgoing to 25 are necessary for SMTP (sending email). incoming to 25 are necessary only if you have mail server on your machine.

comment Backing up emails on Outlook
First thing i thought of is powershell script that can copy the email object to two separate folders at the same time. This is not difficult. I use this for moving emails (rules) - example script: wondershell.blogspot.de/2013/03/… . But i think there is a neatier solution - copy all of them to newly created PST file. Unmount PST file. Close outlook. Copy PST to archive destination. Now you got PST in two location. Mount one of them to Outlook and move your emails back to Inbox. Still, with powershell script you could easily automate this proces

comment How to route internet through SOCKS proxy running on iPhone?
You can setup a socks proxy in Internet Explorer (Lan settings - Advanced) and Firefox - this will give you an access to WWW. If you want to route multiple different protocols on a single socks tunnel - this cannot be done as far as i know.
