I'm a student of Electrical and Computer Engineering at GVSU, with minors in Math and Computer Science

I can usually be found in the Electrical Engineering Ask-a-mod chatroom, ping me if I'm not there.

comment Self-hosted, cross-platform repository for large files
Is Subversion out of the question? You can access/modify files off-line, but you can't commit changes without connecting.

comment Use Linux ping in Cygwin
@me_and - I would definitely release it if I succeed. However, while the first few files compiled just fine by simply changing #include <linux/filename.h> to #include <cygwin/filename.h> and the like, I later found that the Cygwin socket drivers are also lacking features needed by iputils. It's not just a matter of building iputils for Cygwin, it's also a matter of building Cygwin to work with iputils. I'll give it a go later if I have some spare time.

comment Use Linux ping in Cygwin
By the way, iputils hasn't released a tagged in almost two years, but there's been some development for support of IPv6 in their git repository, which was a little hard to find but is located at ` git://git.linux-ipv6.org/gitroot/iputils.git`. Hope that helps someone. I'll post the patch to when I'm done with this, there's a fair bit of work to be done but it doesn't seem insurmountable.

comment Use Linux ping in Cygwin
Thanks, it looks like the first option is going to work better for me as one of the desired requirements is that it have the syntax of the iputils version, so trying yet another ping implementation won't help. That said, I doubt that I'm the first to have run into this so I'll wait in case someone's already tried it.

comment Is there a modern browser that runs on Windows 3.1?
The controller is almost certainly a real-time application. This means that it needs to run for, say, ms every 100 ms or so. In an emulator, this is not guaranteed. If you start up an application (like the browser) in another window, it will take CPU time from the VM or emulator. There are real-time versions of Linux, but the VM would require custom programming to make this work.

comment Keyboard driver corrupted, cannot login. How do I fix without a reinstall?
You mention that you can even download shared files over the network - Do your network security settings allow you to edit or delete files over the network? Specifically, can you access and edit \Windows\system32\drivers (the drivers) and \Windows\system32\config (the registry)?

comment Dual Boot Windows 7 - Second (SSD) drive not showing as disk in Install
You're not an idiot, I've spent way too much time debugging similar problems (Did you know USB drives fit in Ethernet ports?) Thanks for coming back and answering your own question! This is considered good practice per Can I answer my own questions; hopefully this will be helpful to others in the future.

comment Can I make Windows 7 and the Nvidia Control Panel “forget” external display resolutions?
Thanks for the tip, this was enough to help me find the settings on Windows XP Embedded, where my settings were in Control\Current\VIDEO\{hash}\0000\<named settings>. There were no subkeys with DELA in them.

comment How could I identify the usable Cat-5 pairs in this mess of torn-out wiring?
Superuser might be a better fit that Electrical Engineering; I've asked about this in their chat room. DIY might also be an option. However, remember that not every question has a home on Stack Exchange.

comment Why is chrome slashing my HTTPS?
This is a good point, and I'll agree that this isn't a very discoverable UI element, but this approach isn't very useful as an answer. What does it tell you?
