comment Making USB extension cables using UTP cable
Sure you can get the cable cheap, but do you also have a good source of USB3 connectors? Looks like you would spend at least ~$8 on the connectors+shipping. So I am not sure how you are going to make your cables for less than $2. BTW, this might be a better fit over on the electronics stackexchange.

comment Desmistifiying SATA hotplug
My anecdotal experience with a half-dozen different computers/motherboards is that hotplugging works perfectly fine as long as you properly unmount things.

comment Desmistifiying SATA hotplug
The risk of data should be minimal if you properly unmount your filesystems/volumes. Don't simply yank a drive out, or you will likely lose data. BTW a link to a information from a ~10 year old forum post is not likely to have anything to do with the current state of SATA support, unless you have an ancient computer.

My OpenVPN server is on a system with a public address. No forwards are filters required...

comment ssh to Linux hosts using a VPS without port forwading
Depends on the particular technology in use, and how your setup your VPN topology. But it certainly isn't required in many situations. I have boxes I give to customer that will work on any network as long as the network doesn't block one of the following for outbound (udp/1194, udp/53, tcp/80, tcp/443, or tcp/53). The OpenVPN client on my boxes are configured to try each port.

comment How do I block with specific string with IPTABLES?
The modules.dep strongly hints that your kernel doesn't have any string match functionality built, or that something about loading kernel modules is broken. BTW you may be better off using a http proxy for URL filtering.

comment Is it good or bad configuration
I think you forgot to ask a question. You seem to want to change something, but what? From what, to what? Why? Lots of technical detail is nice, but out saying what, and why nobody can help you.

comment Why can't “sudo cp” find the files?
Maybe something like this sudo bash -c 'cp /data/*foo* /dest' instead?

comment How can I have very large files/directories copied from one host to another “offline”?
I really don't think scp is the best tool for this. It doesn't really do good at resumes.

comment Linux - how to force the operating system doesnt go into maintenance mode
I don't if or how to do it on SUSE, but on a Debian system you can auto-repair by adjusting the FSCKFIX value in /etc/default/rcS.

What do you expect to happen instead? When you have filesystem corruption that stops the bootloader, you really do need to fix that before it boots.

comment How can I retrieve the ip of my access point?
Ignore the Interface. Perform the configuration reset procedure that is documented for your device. Then reinstall it as a new device.

comment why does my local hosts file enable me to see remote server php files?
The host probably setup an additional virtual host configuration that had the PHP engine disabled. By adding a host entry you were instructing your system to use the alternate virtual host config.

comment How to Run Teamviewer in Linux Mint as the root user?
I have made my system default - You what? Why? Some software is specifically designed to refuse to run as root because it would result in major security issues.

comment How can I check if my ISP is intercepting DNS queries sent to alternative DNS servers?
I would start by doing a traceroute to the servers you think may be intercepting. I think there are even tools that could do a UDP based traceroute with the port set to 53. See where the replies come from.

@Ramhound he is talking about an ISP using something like NAT or route trickery to make something like Google's DNS be redirected to the ISP DNS servers. Something like this. serverfault.com/questions/672472/…

comment Remove write protection of flash drive from firmware
Could be, sometimes things fail. If it is only two months old I would be tempted to still see if the place you purchased it from will replace it.

This might be a indication that your flash drive dieing. Some drives go into a read-only mode when they are failing.

Your update doesn't really change anything. The answer is still 'because it is a DC'.
