comment Making your PC a WIFI hotspot?
If you find a question which is identical to an existing question, please flag it as a duplicate instead of reposting your answer.

comment Go Phone Playstore
@BenN please only vote to migrate high quality questions. This question would likely be closed after migration anyways. If the OP wants, they can ask themsevles on Android Enthusiasts, but should take care to read their tour page first to make sure they provide all the necessary info.

comment VBA equivalent for “Refresh this connection of Refresh All”
@LWC I see you flagged this for migration to Stack Overflow. VBA is sort of a grey area. Since you already got an answer on SU I don't think it necessarily has to be moved, but if you want it moved to SO I can do that.

comment Three Monitors Hooked Up, but I Can Only Use Two?
@NuWin an adapter would work; however you will probably need an active DP adapter. See this conversation here: superuser.com/q/118957/20088

comment Three Monitors Hooked Up, but I Can Only Use Two?
@NuWin same thing applies to the R9 series. For >2 monitors you need DisplayPort.

comment URLField in django models allowing users to submit blank records, why?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a programming question, and therefore should've been asked on Stack Overflow. It's too late to migrate it now, but in the future please check that your questions are on-topic for the site you're posting them on.

comment put WINDOWS 10 into SLEEP Using CMD (command prompt)
This is still a duplicate. The answer on the dupe even states, "It seems that sleeping a computer is problematic if hibernate is turned on. The command rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState 0,1,0 for sleep is correct - however, it will hibernate instead of sleep if you don't turn the hibernation off," and it even suggestions a solution - using PsShutdown which does support either suspend (sleep) or hibernate.

comment disk cannot be formated
I'm guessing based on your account history that your recommendation is genuine, but this post was flagged as spam because we've had a lot of spam in the past from the creators of the partition software you linked to. I've cleared the spam flag, and it's up to you what to do with the post, just wanted to explain.

comment How to insert clip in the another clip using avisynth?
@FranciscoTapia I don't think this is spam. Seedmanc, you could make the answer more clear, the way it's written does look spammy outside the context of the question. Due to the very short answer with a bare link this post was in the low quality score queue, so reviewers would see it without seeing the question. Could you edit it to briefly explain how to do it, instead of just linking to an outside source? We prefer answers to be self-contained as much as possible.

comment How can I remove a forkbomb from the Startup folder?
I've done this before on Windows 7 and it works fine. You have to press and hold Shift the whole time after you press Enter on your password until the desktop appears, maybe a bit longer to be safe.

Ahem... I think some of your arrows might be pointing the wrong way...

comment Why pinging “drive” gets replies from 127.0.53.53?
Could you make a script to parse that txt file and try each one, see what the result is? I'm curious which it does and doesn't work for.

comment Why pinging “drive” gets replies from 127.0.53.53?
It doesn't happen on google for me, but I just had it happen on homedepot. Browser shouldn't affect it (this is all tested via ping), but I'm on Windows 8.1 for reference.

comment Why pinging “drive” gets replies from 127.0.53.53?
I'm not sure this explains it... why drive and not any of a number of other TLDs? I tried pinging some from the list and the only one so far that's returned the same response is gmail.

comment Hook into linux mount/umount event
@natxoasenjo I visited the post because your comment was flagged by an unrelated user as being rude or impolite. Stack Exchange has certain expectations for answers, one of which is that they must contain more than a link to an external source. Your answer doesn't meet that requirement. You have an opinion of what is "perfectly fine" which does not match the Stack Exchange expectations for a good answer. Please take some time to read How to Answer.

comment Hook into linux mount/umount event
@natxoasenjo the other users are correct, and this is exactly why we encourage answers to quote or paraphrase enough information from linked resources for the answer to stand alone if the links die. A good answer here would have actually shown an example of how to create a udev rule to run a script before/after mounting/unmounting.

comment How to put a video in a corner of another video?
@FranciscoTapia asking "what program does blah blah" is off-topic, asking "how do I do blah blah" is OK. This question is asking, "how do I put a video in the corner of another video" which is fine; the answer may involve suggestion some software. The point of the rule is to avoid questions like "what is the best software to edit videos", not to prohibit any question in which software would be an answer - which is clearly absurd.

comment Direct transfer of a file between two computers on the Internet
@MFB I'm guessing it used to go to his legitimate website, but he's since lost control of the site and it now redirects to a parked domain type page. I've edited the link out for now. To phunehehe, if you see this, please comment regarding the link. If you have a copy of the blog post somewhere else now you can edit that in, but beware that intentionally linking to spam won't be tolerated.

comment Can I “reprogram” an American Express USB drive?
Could you edit your answer to include at least a brief summary of the link? Link only answers don't tell the user very much, and are also no use if the linked page disappears in the future.
