comment Why can't I set a fixed IP in Windows 7
+1 I haven't attached a router yet, it's a stand-alone PC, but suspect that I will need to change my PCs address to 192.168.1.2 Thanks. And, yes, the subnet mask is correct

comment Why can't I set a fixed IP in Windows 7
Yes, I know that 127.0.0.1 is (by default) localhost. I want my PC to have address 192.168.1.1 and for it and others to be avble to address it that way. Uou may have a good point about router default IP address, so many I should make my PC 192.1.168.1.2 - but my point here is that I can't ping what I thought I set as my static IP and, indeed, it does not show up when I run IPCONFIG - I get the previous value.

comment Seeking 9-bit serial port card for Windows PC
+1 I am using an Atmel UC3 wth native 9 bit support & need to handle the communication on a PC. So, I am looking for a natie 9-bit card + driver for Windows. Walter, Nope, not parallel. @Paul +1 There are kudlges which use the parity bit as a 9th data bit, but they tricky to implement (I have researched). I will not implement. I might - in extremis - purchase usch a solution, but strongly prefer a full 9 bits data plus start/stop/parity. – Mawg just now edit

+1 "Which serial adapters have you tried already?" None "Can you provide some context as to why you need this?" No need (and commercal confidential)- just 9 data bits is all. "Specific abilities your are expecting (beyond 'return 9-bits')" None - just 9 data bits inplace of the more common 8.

comment How to retrieve my Gmail password, from Google chat?
+1 and you can post that as an answer if you want. Btw, Vista now suddenly thinks it is invalid. Before I have to buy another, could I mount the drive as an external drive and pass the registry address (which?) as a parameter to RegEdit?

comment How to clone a hardrive (C: parition PLUS boot sector)?
+1 but "Boot loader, including grub (version 1 and version 2) and syslinux, could be reinstalled" no mention of windows Also, that requires me to buy a new, larger harddrive. I can't use the 80gB that I have spare. I will still play with it, though

comment How to clone a hardrive (C: parition PLUS boot sector)?
wrt possible dupe. Sounds like the OP wants to have two drives in future, just copy old to new and boot from new. Not quite what I want. I do know of some of the suggestions and they copy a partition - but not a boot sector
