comment Windows 7 constantly dropping wireless connection
@nondescript1 It sounds like a problem that has a huge number of causes. Whatever it was, it wound up going away on its own, so I guess I have no way of investigating further. I don't really know what to do with this question now, I suppose I can just leave it open in case anyone has some new information about it that can be added.

The TV has component input, so I bought a VGA to Component cable. Note that I'm not overly concerned about video quality since I would only use this setups to watch movies and such from my bed on the other side of the room. I already (stupidly) bought the cables and I'm hoping not to have to pay to ship them back -- It'd be awesome if I could make the VGA port output an interlaced signal, but I guess that's probably not an option.

@Brian unfortunately it's a new, lower-end laptop, so it's only got VGA out and some USB ports.

comment Dedicated Mouse and Keyboard on VirtualBox VM
it's possible, we got it working. I'd post a solution as to how, but it happened by magic. It just... sort of... started working.

comment How to set up RAID-0 first time on new PC?
I was about to say "But SSD is SO FAST ALREADY!" But then I realized that SSD drives get expensive very quickly, and that you're probably combining smaller drives to get more disk space. Is that true?

comment Where can I learn various hacking techniques on the web?
I think the distinction between hackers and crackers is fuzzy and inconsistent. Everybody just uses them interchangeably anyways.

comment Where can I learn various hacking techniques on the web?
I considered it, but this isn't really about the server aspect of security as much as it is the software, and it's not "how do I program defensively against vulnerabilities," so it's not SO, it's more "how do I learn about software vulnerabilities hands on," which sort of screams SU to me, as far as the trilogy goes

comment Where can I learn various hacking techniques on the web?
How is this not about software? It's a learning exercise to strengthen my understanding about software (particularly web applications) security holes. Really it's about programming but the answers to my question don't involve code, so it doesn't belong on SO. Next best is here
