comment Strange spots on Dell U2711 monitor on medium-bright colors
I don't know why it would be moisture damage, though it does look like it suffered from a flood. The room it has always been has never been damp. I actually bought a humidifier since the dry air was killing my eyes. And the warranty already expired. No official Dell representation in my region :(

The spot on the top is right after the first 1/4 of the monitor width. I just didn't take the photo of the whole monitor since my problems are on the left mostly. Strange you mentioned magnetic fields, since on the left of the monitor, a few cm away, is my A/V receiver and Front speaker. Both well shielded, never react to mobile phone ringing even if placed on them, but still...

comment Strange spots on Dell U2711 monitor on medium-bright colors
I've googled my problem many times, and seen that post as well. The monitor has no visible issues when turned off, or when displaying a black image. I've cleaned my monitor dozens of times during the 2 year period I've had the issue with the above spot (the first one that I saw).

@MinaIsaac, indeed, don't just accept an answer to close the issue and forget. If no answer fits your solution, then don't accept any. Listen to Arjan, tell us what's up. You've asked a question, now follow through so that the community could also gain from it.

comment How to change / remove cPanel default website page for mail.domain.com?
@MinaIsaac, if you want a more specific RewriteCond, then use this: ^mail\.mydomain\.com$ instead of what you used (though I wouldn't be so speciffic. At least don't put the dollar $ sign at the end). And you changing the RewriteRule caused it not to work. Leave it to ^.*. If the RewriteCond passes, then you already have a request to mail.mydomain.com. Any such request should be forbidden. Don't try to insert any more rules there. Especially that RewriteRule only checks the trailing path (ex. /images/house.jpg). It does not contain the domain.

comment Windows 8 HDMI audio disconnects on playback stop
Thank you for this answer. It may actually help, but unfortunately I can't test it any more, since I've switched to DTS streams over S/PDIF from a "DTS Connect" enabled audio card. If anyone can confirm that this actually works, I'll mark this as the correct answer.
