Thanks for pointing me to cURL! I completely forgot about it, works like a charm! Switch in question is --continue-at <offset>. Cheers!

comment Weak wifi on DSL wifi router; might run cable. Maximum cable length?
WDS: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Distribution_System - you can use any device which supports security settings used at your base AP (which is very likely), and both devices have to support WDS (which is less likely, but possible). Look up "repeater mode" for your and your buddy's router.

comment How to unlock and remove a protected partition from Prestigio USB stick?
I don't have the device any more, so I can't try this. However, thank you very much for a very detailed guide. I'm sure it will come in handy someday.

comment Cloning single disk drive to multiple drives simultaneously
This comes closest to both local computer and network of computers one-to-many disk duplication, simultaneously. Thanks for in-depth explanation!

comment Cloning single disk drive to multiple drives simultaneously
Thanks for in-depth explanation of the process. It was really helpful. I am exploring network cloning options right now (using multicast), and if it fails, I'll explore this DD vector some more.

comment Cloning single disk drive to multiple drives simultaneously
Yeah, I am aware of existence of these devices; however, they are everything but cheap, especially in my zero-budget case :( Thanks for mentioning them, though.

comment Cloning single disk drive to multiple drives simultaneously
True. I did some research prior to asking this question, but I was interested in hearing other people experiences. DD is a great little utility, but: 1) it lacks awareness of actual data content (it will copy empty space, too, sector-by-sector), and 2) someone has reported performance issues when doing clone to more than one drive in this way. Any more ideas?
