comment Make socat listen on both IPv4 and IPv6 stacks
Your netstat output is showing something listening to both TCPv4, and TCPv6. So it isn't clear to me what isn't working?

Of course that is an older copy of the database. It doesn't include the keys from the new variants of cryptolocker.

comment Resizing LVM Partitions
if you used lvresize to resize a logical volume, ... then need - Since he is reducing the size of a volume, he better be doing that in the other order, or he will face some serious risk of corruption or data loss. When reducing, you need to resize the fs first, then reduce the logical volume. Oh, and with any operation like this, always make a full backup first.

comment How to use iptables to allow traffic only throug ONE SPECIFIC VPN
No ideal, you probably have written your rules, wrong, but it is difficult to tell since you haven't given us the full set of rules you used when it failed. You also haven't shared the routing tables, so it isn't clear to me what will be crossing the tun interface.

What exactly do you mean by searches? Searches from what and how?

comment What hardware makes this sound?
It does sound like a modem, but doesn't really seem to include the initial handshake. Seems more like the sound you hear after a link is established, (and the modem speakers are normally muted).

comment Why does plugging my ethernet cable into my PC crash the rest of my internet?
I strongly advise you to buy a cable tester if you are going to create your own Ethernet cables. A decent tester would probably identify the problem. If I randomly speculate I bet you may have a short or something on the 4-5, or 7-8 pairs. If your working devices only supported 100mb, they wouldn't use these pairs. A 1GB device does use these pairs.

comment Why does plugging my ethernet cable into my PC crash the rest of my internet?
It matters because of the twists. The twisted pairs in the cables are there to eliminate noise. So on a given pair send signal one will be a negative, and a positive with respect to ground. By having them be opposite with respect to the ground the electronics can detect and handle some errors caused by EMF interference. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential_signaling Each pair is a set, each of the four pairs, have a different twist frequency (twists per inch).

comment Find a student with select grades
@BigChris I would use a structure like this. i.stack.imgur.com/V1Cqh.png You want to do this because a student name might change in the future, or you might have multiple students with the same name. You don't want to have to mass-update your scores table when a student name changes, you just want to update the Student table. Likewise, the value of your Subjects might change, or you might add more. You want to be able to change those without mass updating the scores table.

comment Find a student with select grades
Your database schema is poorly designed. With a properly normalized schema this could be very easy.

comment Script to check for files newer than argument, help using -nt
Add a set -x to the top of your script? The output should give you a pretty strong idea about what the problem is.

comment User vs. System Environment Variables: Do System Variables Override User Variables?
When you change variables you often have to completely restart Windows. Changing a variable in the settings will not change running processes. New processes copy the environment from running processes (depending on how they are started), so simply starting a process doesn't mean you get a new environment.

comment How to recover a pairing bluetooth pin code?
It somewhat depends on the specific bluetooth device. A google search for 'remove bluetooth device windows 7' has several potentially useful articles.
