comment I used the same password for my hidden volume as my outer volume. Did I lose my outer volume's data?
Definitely don't do anything else unless you have a copy of the volume... Are you saying that you can successfully (in terms of TrueCrypt) mount the volume both by using AAAA and BBBB now? If so, both volume headers seem to exist. Maybe you only damaged the file system. If you are unlucky though, it wrote the key from one of the headers to both of them or did something equally silly, which would mean your data is gone unless you have a backup of the volume headers.

comment Why does a system hang after it has been running for over 12 hours?
If the HDD is active during that time, the system is probably busy swapping. Try running ProcExp to diagnose it. Other issues may include overheating of CPU or GPU. Does the entire system hang, or just the specific application?

@Lizz: It is not an answer to the question. It shows which ports are affected, but not what is occupying them.

@Kedar: That is exactly what I did to find out which ports are affected.

comment What is the most reliable way to send a big file between two Windows computers via network?
Why is this flagged as a duplicate of questions asking how to e-mail 2-30 MB of data? There are a few orders of magnitude between "send 17 MB" and "send 170 GB", and the solutions are completely different. Dropbox/filehosters are not really a feasible suggestion for 170 GB...

@Pow-Ian: I did not want to advertise a specific company, but FedEx really lives up to their original Federal Express name. I handed them a (pretty sizeable) package weighing around 10-12 kg at noon on Saturday in Germany, didn't even pick their fastest service, and got it delivered to Belgium by 10:35 AM on Monday for 29 EUR. If I have anything that needs to get somewhere fast, I will definitely use FedEx again.

comment SSH: I have a public key in authorized_keys on two hosts, but no private key. Why am I able to login with no password?
You can post your answer as an answer and mark it as accepted if you want.

comment How can I format a USB “thumb drive” so it will be readable on OS X and Windows?
The warning about not removing the drive is pretty unnecessary. If he does, the only bad thing that will happen is that the file system on the stick will be broken, i.e. he will have to format it again and "lose" all of the non-existent data, but there will not be any kind of permanent damage.
