comment Hardware issue: computer plays beep sounds at startup, and then turns off
Ouch, that video card slot looks unfixable. Time for a new motherboard at least, possibly the video card is dead as well; does it have cracks or loose parts?

comment How to transfer a file over pen and paper, with error correction
@Jeremy, Crockford's implementation includes error detection. If you need to correct errors, investigate Forward-Error Correction (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forward_error_correction).

Unfortunately, there are applications that recreate the desktop icon if it has been deleted.

comment How to add hash to MS Word documents?
What kind of "document" are you talking about? Also, you do not include the hash itself when you calculate the hash as that would indeed be pointless. Excluding the hash when you recalculate is not pointless.

comment What is the reason for 7-zip / WinRAR to first unzip files to “temp” and then move them to destination?
@Dante, that is not true. Moving a file on the same partition simply changes the index of the file in the file system to the new directory, it does not copy any data and takes only an instant. Don't believe me? Try it, cut a multi-GB file from one folder and paste it to another folder; it takes less than a second. They try the same thing to another drive or partition. Takes minutes.
