comment How do I create a bootable dos CDROM in Linux that is bigger than 1.44MB for bios update
Ahh, sorry about that. I've since learned not to paste links without putting in more detail. This was answered 5+ years ago. Feel free to come up with a complete answer and if it works and is clear I may award you the correct answer.

comment How does port-forwarding help in torrents?
Anyone who cares about security would ensure uPnP is off. It's a terrible idea!

comment How to set Windows XP pagefile beyond 4096 MB?
It's my understanding that your app needed to use the AWE API to access the extra RAM made available through the cludgy PAE system. Anyway, this is such an old problem that so few people have now. Nearly everyone is on 64-bit.

comment Is Mac OS X open source?
Darwin is not the kernel in OSX. The kernel is called Mach. Darwin is the code name for the whole of the underlying ecosystem such as the filesystem, drivers, shell etc. i.e. Darwin is the OSX operating system and this is mostly open source.

comment Is it possible to merge my ISP and cellphone Internet access? I want to split download and upload
You know, this question is actually different than the ones this question is linked to and claimed to be a duplicate of. Those are about generally merging connections, this question is more than that.

comment Is a 7200rpm USB 3.0 drive going to have very similar performance to an internal 7200rpm drive or is it still going to be noticeably slower?
@Moab - not true. It depends what you're comparing to. USB 3 can support up to 5Gbps (inc overhead), that's much quicker than SATA II, but not as fast as SATA III. If you have an SSD drive attached, it'll fly past a drive connected to SATA II.
