comment How many PS3/PS4 controllers can be hooked up to one PC Bluetooth adapter at a time?
This is lots of great information, and all sounds correct; but do you have any references to back it all up?

comment Leap Seconds in Windows
"Windows 7 does not have built-in functionality to deal with leap seconds" - ...nor could it, since, unlike leap days, leap seconds are arbitrarily decided by some committee. Since Windows 7 can't read the future, there is no way to handle it without contacting a server.

I know how to connect a PS3 controller to a PC, that is not the question. And your first link does not even attempt to answer the question. The latter two are related, but they both say the exact opposite of your answer!

Just because the specification has a lot of pages, it doesn't mean the answer is complex, or that no one knows the answer. Also I don't believe Bluetooth 4.2 devices are being sold yet.

comment How many PS3/PS4 controllers can be hooked up to one PC Bluetooth adapter at a time?
@miroxlav: This is primarily a question about what Bluetooth adapters support, the fact that I'm interested in pairing them with controllers specifically is secondary. So no, this is the correct site.

comment I sometimes get lag spikes causing ping times of 200 ms; might using different (e.g. Google's) DNS servers be better?
@Ramhound: The perceived slowness of wireless networks is due to high packet loss, not high latency. Pinging your router under normal conditions should return <1ms on wireless just as on wired.

comment How do I tell if my Memory is ECC or Non-ECC?
@Hennes: You can have 10, but 9 is far more common. The memory is typically split into chunks of 72-bits (8 bits read at once from each of 9 data-chips), with 64-bits of data + 8-bits of error-correction in each chunk. See here for more technical info.

comment Can a file be maliciously changed in a way that maintains its original SHA-1 Hash?
The question is, why would you want to use a hash that has any known vulnerabilities, when there are alternatives that are just as fast, easy to use, and widely available that don't (eg. SHA-256)? Additionally, there's a reason cryptographers declare a hash insecure after only one vulnerability is found: history has shown that when one is found, others quickly follow. The famous Bruce Schneier quote is "Attacks always get better, they never get worse"

-1 everything in this post is completely made up. Length-extension attacks do not "maintain the same hash" (the hash just changes in a known way). Also, there's no reason a virus would have to remove "the less-used code" (how would it even determine what that is?). And what do jpegs have to do with anything!?

comment How to make Shift, Ctrl and Alt toggle like Caps lock
This feature is the bane of every video game player who hits 'shift' 5 times for whatever reason while playing and is immediately minimized to the desktop, usually followed by their in-game death.

comment Why is a 7zipped file larger than the raw file?
@Mehrdad: "Is there any compression algorithm (however poor) that does not increase the length of any input?" - The answer is no. There are 2^(n+1)-1 possible messages of size n-bits or less. Our algorithm must map each one of these to a unique output. If even one of these gets mapped to a value with fewer bits, another value must necessarily get mapped to one with more.
