comment Do emulators parse binary code within files?
Indeed you are correct, and in fact the original meaning of the name "wine" was "WINdows Emulator", however the project's name is currently the recursive acronym given above, regardless of its accuracy.

I feel I should point out that Wine Is Not an Emulator ;)

comment Do emulators parse binary code within files?
You're overcomplicating an issue that is in fact, quite simple. The emulator doesn't need to parse instructions "in hex" or "in binary", those are merely ways of displaying numbers for humans to read. While the instructions in memory are stored as a series of bits, software (including emulators) would be able to compare the whole instruction as a number. Checking that a char "x == 0x0F" is effectively the same as checking each bit of the number. An emulator has no need to check each bit, because the host CPU provides the instructions to do so.

comment Prevent Internet Explorer from caching SSL client certificates
Most SSL client certificate authentication systems rely on the user continuing to use the client certificate automatically in any further interactions as I understand it. If that is the case for your app, disabling SSL client certificate caching would result in immediately being effectively logged out on the next page load, and thus being unable to properly use the app with either certificate A or B, so while this would allow you to switch certificates more easily, it would probably not be the desired result.

comment How to upgrade an old Linux box with this hardware configuration?
@torr Your current RAM is DDR-333, but your motherboard supports up to DDR-400. Replacing your DDR-333 with DDR-400 should provide a refreshing burst of speed to memory access :-)

@torr that controller is to my knowledge a SATA 1 controller, but any drive should fall back to 150MB/s without issues.

comment How to upgrade an old Linux box with this hardware configuration?
rotational speed has some relevance to speed, but most consumer drives are 7200 RPM. More important is seek speed, cache size, etc. Your drive has a mere 2MB cache, but a speedy 8.9ms average seek time. A larger cache could help greatly, but if 40GB of size is within your requirements I'd personally suggest an SSD, and in either case I'd avoid bringing in a new IDE drive.

comment How to enable access to *.xml files on Apache server?
If you look to the left side of the listing, those letters and hyphens indicate current permissions, first a hyphen for a normal file (as opposed to a directory), then "rwx" for user, then for group, then for everyone else. Since there's an "r" for everyone else, anyone, including the webserver's user, can read the file.

comment How to get around Java error when trying to use Citrix?
This appears to be the output of the Java console with no errors displayed. Can you give more context for the error, and explain what does or does not happen that you don't expect to happen?
