comment Are IP addresses with and without leading zeroes the same?
@tonny that's because POSIX inet_addr() returns -1 for invalid values, which loops around to 255. The newer routine, as mentioned in the Linux man page, has better error handling.

Not so much ping, but the underlying routine it uses inet_addr()

comment What is the difference between USB Mini A and Mini B?
A Hard Drive with its own power source is a Self-Powered Device, just like Hubs. And no, not according to the USB specs. I mean, mini A and mini B cables are wired the same and the difference is just the physical shape, but its non-standard to have a mini-a connector on anything that is not OTG compatible.

@RJR uhh... Revision 1.3 December 5, 2006 Refer to the USB 2.0 specification and the Micro-USB supplement for all connector and cable assembly information and replace mini- connector references with micro-connector references. Your blindly reading a document without regard to age, on a question that is age specific.

@RJR that is 100% wrong. OTG existed on USB Mini as well.

comment What is the name of the cable inside PC cases?
Its a context specific name. Molex Power connector, for ATX systems. While the smaller ones are Floppy Power Connectors, as they are only present on Floppy drives.

comment Is it likely that replacing usb pcb will fix blown usb port?
There is only one Transistor, based on the labels. Q1 means Transistor 1. D1,D2, etc mean diode 1, 2, etc. Multi-diode packages. Since it looks like a simple two sided board, draw a schematic, and then use a multimeter to test all the parts. If they all work as they should, then its likely to be on the main board. If you trace the usb pins to the connector, see if it goes directly or to other parts. But the board only costs 20 bucks or so from a quick google.

comment Is it safe to power on a motherboard outside of its case?
This varies greatly depending on the board, the cpu, passive cooling, etc. But a fan in a mostly enclosed space has better suction than one in an open space. A wind tunnel in design, to push/pull circulate air over the parts.
