comment Will adding more RAM speed up my computer?
@qasdfdsaq Keep in mind that all of that was written a bit less than 5 years ago, when things looked differently.

comment What information can my ISP see from my router?
@JakeGould That's how it's supposed to work, but in practice MAC address conflicts do appear, it's just that they are very hard to detect, unless it happens on computers which are on the same subnet. And then, you also have the "wild" manufacturers which use unregistered OUIs and have same MAC address on all (most?) of their products. This actually happened with some lab equipment that I have. Therefore I believe that your statement is a bit too optimistic.

@DragonLord Why would a gaming desktop, powered by a switch-mode power supply, require a "sine-wave" input?

comment How to determine what's trying to access my optical drive (emits unusual sounds)?
Unfortunately, none of the offered programs were helpful. When the drive emits sounds and there's no disk in the drive, Process Monitor shows nothing. During the past few days, the drive spun up with a disk in it only once, but I was unable to start Process Monitor quickly enough to catch the event.
