comment Can a virtual machine be split across multiple drives?
@John yes, as Robin said, all you need to do is first power down the VM and you should be able to add a new hard drive image to the VM. When you next turn on the VM it will act just as if you plugged an additional new hard drive to a real computer.

comment Understanding traceroute output / high latency vs blizzard server
Ah, did not scroll to the right and saw that 13%. That is usually explained by a overloaded home router, are you running a torrent program on one or more computers? Many home routers can only support 200 or 300 concurrent connections, a busy torrent can easily get over that number. When that happens your home router will start dropping packets.

comment Understanding traceroute output / high latency vs blizzard server
Your logs does not show any problems, you have sub 300ms pings all the way up to Blizzards internal network. It is perfectly normal for a private internal routers not to respond with ICMP packets (hops 16 through 20). The more useful thing to see would be the results from ping 12.129.209.68

comment Is it possible to make a peer-to-peer SSH connection via bittorrent-like technique?
@ceremcem yes, but a 3rd party that both ends can connect to must be involved to set up the initial connection. You can't do any solution without a 3rd computer either provided by you or by a external source (The Hamatchi servers in your update is the external source).

comment How do I fix my RAID array after NVIDIA GeForce Experience mangled it?
On a side note about your setup, I asked a question about a setup similar to yours (getting a new card and keeping a old card around for PhysX). The general response was it was not worth the power draw and heat to keep the older card around.

comment How do I fix my RAID array after NVIDIA GeForce Experience mangled it?
Every since they added the GeForce Experience system I have never had any problems using the update system built in to it to update my drivers. (This is anecdotal evidence on one computer using a GTS 250 for several years then replacing it earlier this year with a GTX 770, all on Windows 7)

Why did you uninstall your driver before updating. The Gforce driver is designed to upgrade in place over existing older versions.

comment How to create a nameserver?
Have you looked in to one of the many Dynamic DNS providers that will supply you with the nameserver that will follow your IP (none of the ones I know of will do it for free if you are providing your own domain name instead of using one of their premade ones). EDIT: And if you wanted to host your own you would need a static IP to host it, however if you had a static IP to host it you would not need your own nameserver.

comment GPU Whistling when Testing Direct3D demo
I had a similar problem, oddly, replacing my CPU power supply fixed it. The whistle was from a bad capacitor, when the power draw on the GPU changed it changed the pitch of the sound. Do you have a spare power supply to try out?

comment Difference between Ethernet and Ethernet cables?
It can mean the same thing and it can not mean the same thing, It all depends on context. Can you provide the context you are wondering about?

comment What is the brown slot near the CPU socket on a Pentium 1 motherboard, and what is it used for?
Here is a useful image of common parts and their sockets for motherboards, unfortunately it does not contain a CELP (unless it is calling it a "601 Processor Direct Slot/Personality Slot")

comment duplicate hdd serial number “152D20337A0C”
@mighq makes sense, a controller chip is unlikely to modify SMART data as it passes through, but a simple query of "What is your serial" (I don't know the exact ATA command for it) could easily be spoofed.

comment Can I “transfer” my Windows 7 license to a virtual machine running on the same computer?
So to specifically answer the OP's question, if you have a retail license you are allowed to transfer it, but if you are using a OEM license you are not allowed to transfer it.
