comment How does a “proxy” allow me to bypass company restrictions on internet traffic?
There simply is no way for us to guess about the internal setup of your network at work. It certainly could be like above. But also keep in mind that there are protocols for automatically configuring a proxy (WPAD) in most browsers, but some software doesn't use those automatic methods. For that software you must specify the proxy manually. So maybe your network requires a proxy for all outbound access, but most of the systems are automatically configured, in that setup the proxy could be the firewall, or behind the firewall.

comment It is possible to “virtualize” a OS who is already installed in the HDD?
Search for P2V, or physical to virtual. Yes it is possible.

comment Where is Linux root filesystem on an attached drive
It would be far easier to figure out if you booted to that old drive and ran mount, lsblk and examined the output. If you can post that output here and we might be able to help.

Sure they may be connected in effect, but they are not directly connected in any way useful for calculating total bandwidth of a link.

comment Blocking installing software on Windows 7
We need more details here. If your account is not a member of the administrators or power users group you should have no ability to write to the required portions of the registry or filesystem. But some applications can install in per-user AppData folder, or run as a Portable App. Run the install and pay attention to where it is installing to. Also have you changed the UAC settings?

comment Preload Debian installer onto HDD
This is a pretty good way to do it, I had considered suggesting this method, since it was more likely to work, but raw writing of a disk image should have worked.

comment Preload Debian installer onto HDD
I found only contemplate a drive that has already a bootloader on it - So why is that a problem? Just install a bootloader.

comment What should I do to prevent games from crashing?
When I installed Win 8, I was able to play games - Worst case solution, backup your data and perform a clean reinstall of the OS. It seems likely that something is broken in the OS, drivers, or software.

Is this a typo? Are the paths inverted? - No Microsoft just did things really weird.

Did you already update the openssl on the RHEL5 box? Did that include updating or recompiling svn?

comment Chrome for Windows 8 Blocks Insecure Content with No Option to Allow
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 I am not sure that old question applies here. Chrome uses Certificate pinning for the Google owned domains. I don't think you can simply bypass it using the generic methods.

comment Reinstalling linux without Re-Encrypting
How exactly is your system doing encryption? There are several methods. What Linux distribution do you use? One thing to consider, since your system was already encrypted you could just do a standard re-install including rebuilding the crypto, just make sure you skip the step to encrypt the entire drive. Since your system was already encrypted re-encrypting all that free space that would be pointless.

comment Merge in snapshot vmdks in vmware workstation
Does the VM still boot? Are you sure your VMDK wasn't created with the option to split files at 4GB (which is the default)?
