comment How can I find when a hard drive was manufactured?
It's usually printed on the housing of the hard drive itself. You may have to open them up though. I'm not sure if there's a way to get it through software.

Try changing the font at 'Settings' -> 'Style Configurator'. On the right side, it says 'Font name'. The default setting should be Courier New.

comment Why do some websites show the company name next to the URL?
@Pacerier There are plenty of arguments against EV-SSL you can find if you google it. Not the least one is the issue of incompatibility with older/low-end devices and software.

comment What is the 12.8V rail on my PSU?
@sawdust CB transceivers will typically use about 13.8V (about your average car voltage with the engine running), but will work with less (albeit with less transmitting power). Therefore, every 0.1V helps! ;)

@CharlieRB You should really only VC a question if it's unsalvageable. If you can't do it yourself, you might want to leave a comment to point the OP in the right direction.
