comment How to install Java6 add-on for IE9
I understand, maybe this is why and IE won't allow java6 to install itself as a plugin?

comment Extremely high pitched noise just came and went from my PC in the space of about 2-3 minutes
In that case things are starting to make sense - for a few months I've had an annoying 'rickety' sound coming from a similar area in my machine when I start to do intensive tasks on the desktop. This rickety sound (like a fan hitting something on each rotation) was present prior to the high pitched noise described above but hasn't appeared in the few hours since even though I've been working with the same apps on desktop. Related?

comment Mistakenly overwritten USB HDD with linux dd command
I'm confused - as I see it, dd wrote 500MB of files to the hdd. Surely not all of the previous file system's 500GB has been overwritten?

comment Windows 7 Explorer folder listing defaults to tiny width
good point. I edited to make it clearer - yes, talking about the column width. I have no idea how to set a sane default.

comment Can't mount usb key filesystem
So it was. How would that have happened? It was working fine when I removed it correctly from my W7 workstation?

comment Automatically renaming duplicate filenames in Windows 7 when copying to a folder?
I don't. There's likely a reg setting for it then, but who knows where?

comment Automatically renaming duplicate filenames in Windows 7 when copying to a folder?
only when bulk copying. When single copying, no such option appears.

comment Putty can't connect over SSH to hostname, IP connection works
what do you mean by access outside from my network? I can access the internet from my W7 machine if that's what you mean. And all devices have valid IP addresses handed out by the router.

comment Putty can't connect over SSH to hostname, IP connection works
a) both on inside b) not sure, how can I check this? c) yes. Used both a dyndns service and straight hostname connection before. DynDNS (no-ip.org) works now too, but hostname addressing fails.

no, could not find host. IP address pings ok.

comment Putty can't connect over SSH to hostname, IP connection works
it's just a hostname on my local network - and I'm trying to login via ssh not http. The DNS error detailed above is when run the http server startup script.
