comment How does Google's new re-captcha work?
That seems a bit too simple. So you say the only difference here is a matter of how fast you scroll down? I guess if it's done in an instant, it might be a robot, but once this is known, the bot just has to wait a little longer to appear human. Not a good test!

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
I removed the harddisk, attached it to a desktop computer. Testdisk itself was not very useful, although interesting to know it exists. Photorec - part of Testdisk - is another story. This has recovered over 10k files by now, of which 99% will be system files and probably useless. I found several documents that do belong to the user, so it seems to work. Filename and dates are gone, but that was to be expected.

comment Harddisk reinstalled - can data be recovered?
I removed two partitions, created two new ones, installed Windows 7 and stopped when the user account was to be created. Now I'm running testdisk, and it shows "Linux" when doing the deep analysis. Not sure if that will result in anything, but it does find something.

comment Why is my Mac slow?
First of all, he is not running a "very old copy of os", but uses OS X 10.10, the latest version with probably all updates. Installing the OS that came with the four year old laptop will not solve his problems but make them bigger. Installing an insecure OS is a bad advice.

comment keepass2 under debian wont open an url
Is this behavior limited to Keepass, or does this happen with other applications as well? If you would click on a link in a mail client like Thunderbird, will this happen as well? If so, this is not a problem with Keepass, but with Debian.

comment Wifi extender with its own wireless network
I think what I need is a Wifi Hotspot, and the D-Link DIR-510L seems to be able to do it all. Wired+wireless both ways, wireless+wireless with hotspot, and 3G optional with either wired or wireless hotspot.

comment Wifi extender with its own wireless network
OK thanks. But I don't want to use wire at all. The connection between source and access point should be wireless as well.

comment how to recover bitlocker encrypted partition
You can recover the bitlocker partition from backup. But wait - let me guess - you don't have a backup? Well now you know why you need backup. Let this be a lesson!
