comment how to display an image all PCs on a LAN
You want to display the screen of PC1 to the PCs 2-10? You could set up a VNC server on the primary desktop and then connect the rest of the clients to that session. There's also broadcasting/screen streaming software avalible online athough I couldn't suggest anything.

comment WiFi in a kali virtual machine?
Because as far as the VM is concerned, it doesn't have any wirless card in the machine. If you want to try this, you'll need to install a USB wireless dongle and capture it in the VM.

comment Building virtual infrastructure - how to start?
Is the asking for suggestions in what to buy to run the virtual machines, or asking how you should set up your machine for running everything (?!) on one machine?

comment WiFi in a kali virtual machine?
The guest VM takes the bridged connection as ethernet, regardless of the physical method. It's more like the virtual machine does not have the driver for the virtual hardware (the intel networking card).

comment Custom built PC slowly freezes up
Have you tried booting a live linux disk such as Ubuntu and tried using the system with that? If the same issue happens I would have though it would be a hardware program.

comment Connecting Windows 3.1 to Windows SBS 2011 Standard
Graham. Windows 3.11 was released ninteen years ago and support for 3.1 was discontinued in 2002. Have you managed to get this networked before with other, older, networking hardware? Also I work in a school with a number of CAD/CAM machines, including a laser cutter which, remarkably, work(ed) on 98 through to Windows 7.

comment Howto create a bootable pendrive for windows manually on Linux?
FWIF, I've never had any luck creating a windows boot USB with UnetBootin. Linux variants (Clonezilla, Ubuntu, etc) always work a treat though.

comment streaming flv using ffserver
Hi, Lee. Anything in a home setting is unfortunately off-topic for ServerFault but would be more suited to SuperUser. You could either edit out the references to "home", re-ask the question on SuperUser, or wait for it to be migrated.

comment Why are transparent holes appearing in my Firefox pages?
I've disabled hardware acceleration and have not noticed anything after about 30 minutes. @techie007 if you want to suggest that as an answer I'll be happy to accept.

comment Why are transparent holes appearing in my Firefox pages?
I haven't tried anything because I didn't know where to start. Video drivers are on the lastest ATI. Different resolutions (down from 1920x1080 doesn't appear to make a difference. I'll find out how to disable hardware acceleration and then let you know if there is a difference.

comment Network setup for web development on KVM guest with host using wifi
Odd, I've used VirtualBox in my dev enviroment on three different laptops and a desktop with a USB wireless adaptor and I've never had any issues.

comment Network setup for web development on KVM guest with host using wifi
Is the "non-bridgeable wlan0" a KVM thing? Because VirtualBox does that quite nicely. A bridged network adaptor would pick up an IP from your normal DHCP server and would be accessible to all machines on your local network.

comment Configuring bridging in Virtual Box to enable access from other computers in network
What's the IP of the host machine, and the ip of the guest? What happens if you do a ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew in the guest VM?

comment For Hosting and publish a Website at Home Computer?
If this is your first website I would suggest you look at "shared hosting" instead of doing it at home.

comment SSD internal drive vs. desktop hard drive (with 7200 RPM) - Which is preferable?
I have a 120GB SSD with the OS and some Steam games on, with the rest of my Steam files on a 500GB SATA 7,200 Spinny Disk secondary drive. Windows 7 "parks" the disk when not being used - I can hear the system spin up the disk when I go to access it.

comment Video import to Movie Maker broken
How did you download the video? If it was through downloading the WMV from BBC iPlayer, it has a form of DRM that prevents the videos being played about with. It's not possible to remove this DRM.
