comment How to correctly copy and paste programming code from PDF to editors?
Maybe the publisher can fix it? I think they made a mistake. I've done this one time with O'Reilly and they fixed the book within a week.

comment How to correctly copy and paste programming code from PDF to editors?
Maybe the font used in the PDF shows " but still it's the curled version when pasted in another font? So maybe the problem is not the pasting, but the source. Try another PDF reader. You might try Firefox, which has bad PDF rendering, but it may make things clear. pdfreaders.org

comment How to check whether an undetected hard disk is working?
Well that depends on where you live, but opening a laptop to replace a harddisk is totally acceptable in the EU (where I live - no idea where @justin lives), even if the warranty says it is not. The only exception is maybe for replacing batteries that are glued to the motherboard or stuff like that. This case doesn't fall into that category, although it may depend on local law.

Try it in an external case, in another desktop or laptop. First you need to make sure it's not hardware related.

comment Building a small home server
Windows 2000, 2003 and XP are all EOL. Windows 7 or 2008 is not an option for such a machine. Wireshark runs on Linux, and I bet there are good alternatives for "the Dude" that run on Linux. My advice is to buy a Raspberry PI for $40 and use that, but I suppose you can get Linux running on that machine as well.

What Windows applications do you need to run? With 256MB RAM I can't think of anything "Windows" that will work that is not totally out of date security wise.

comment Intranet slower than internet
If you have many computers in your local network, have you tried another client computer to see if that one has the same problems? Try to determine if the problem is in the network or in that one computer!

comment Automatically reconnect to Bluetooth speaker
OK what if it's the speaker, what can you do about that except reconnecting? It probably has no interface for bluetooth.
