comment Is there a way to get the complete zone file for a domain without contacting its host?
Just a warning, this doesn't actually include "all the DNS records in the Zone file"

comment What is the reason that file URLs start with three slashes: “file:///” etc?
@ColeJohnson - Did you know you can leave out the protocol part too? So http://example.com could be linked to as //example.com in a document transmitted over http. It's called a protocol relative url, all browsers support them.

I've definitely seen sustained transfers over 30 Mb/s using USB 3 devices in USB 2 rated ports.

comment Verifying USB connection speed (USB 3 or USB 2?)
One point though, having now solved the problem (it was a driver issue), device manager is still reporting my "USB Root Hub" as "high-speed", despite achieving 100+ MB/s transfer speeds. It's worth noting I also see an "Intel(R) USB 3.0 Root Hub" but the properties window for it has no "Advanced" tab so it's data rate isn't available.

@Darius -- Yep, I've been using ATTO Disk Benchmarker which tests reads and writes with different file sizes.

I've also just tested these drives on a USB 2 port on a different machine and the transfer speeds are near identical; 30-32 Mb/s for both reads and writes. Seems a lot like I'm hitting the high end of USB 2 in both cases...
