comment Recover a disk that won't spin after begin shaken?
+1 I've also had luck swapping an identical PCB before (same model/firmware/revision, etc.), but I haven't done that in ages.

comment How does Tunlr work?
This is partially correct: the only part that's proxied is the geo authorization and the initial data stream (which is mangled to include your real IP). This is why it's so fast because they're only man-in-the-middle proxying up until the streaming begins.

@ShaneMadden yeah, but there's zero lag at all. I think they're just proxying the auth bit. I think the stream itself is direct. I have a 100Mb connection and Squid box in a colo in the US and the buffering is very noticeable; there's no buffering at all with this tunlr.

comment Remote Desktop Connection won't connect - Security Package does not exist
The order of these values is very important: I was trying to prevent this (ampliasecurity.com/research/wcefaq.html#digestauth) from working, and while it did, it also hosed RDP to 2008 boxes; when I re-added wdigest, I had it last and after rebooting, still no dice.

@chaz Server Fault is for IT Professionals; Super User is a better fit for this kind of question.

SMART attributes are fine; forgot about chkdsk /r, will try that.

comment How to reset a Fritz!Box DSL router to factory settings?
If the thought of hunting around for a telephone isn't persuasive enough to look for a new router, you might like to know that Fritz!box is in a GPL dispute at the moment (according to wikipedia), which could go badly for the company and they may end-of-life your product.
