I'm just a simple IT guy, who does a bit of programming on the side.

I don't suppose you're trying to block the licensing/registration mechanism of some program??

comment can not access my public ip open port?
@BorisIvanov Telling an end user to enable Remote Administration sounds like a terrible idea. He's probably got a terrible password, and will forget it's enabled, leaving him vulnerable to the Internet until it get's hacked.

comment Apache2 virtual hosts not working
You don't need the A records for www and test if you have the default (@) pointing there, it's just redundant. Doesn't hurt either way.

Probably something in one of the Startup folders, or in the standard registry locations.

comment How risky it is to have a personal server with ssh opened to the Internet?
I think you hit the nail on the head when you mentioned that you don't have the time or inclination to become an expert in $TECHNOLOGY security; this is the primary reason to use a hosted solution. The only other common argument in evaluating in-house vs hosting is the cost. Since github and the like are free, you're essentially giving up your personal time just to gain the knowledge of how to run a git repo. We can't tell you what you should be doing with your personal time, but in a professional situation this would make no sense. (caveat emptor: complicated situations have more variables).

comment Fix hard disk errors using Fedora live cd
So why not run fsck with sudo?? Also, why are you trying to fix Windows from Linux?? Why aren't you using the Windows CD that came with your computer?
