comment How can I automatically add a moustache to a batch of images?
There used to be a Chrome plugin (tested.com/tech/web/…) called Must Stache, but sadly it appears to have been removed.

comment Software RAID 1 broken, how do I fix this?
Your original question didn't make sense. Claiming "The other devices weren't even powered on, I was running from CentOS DVD-ROM to test them out." certainly didn't help.

comment Sharing Excel sheet over network?
Most barcode scanners tend to show up as a USB Keyboard (or at least have a mode to which you can set them and make them appear as a USB keyboard, so I wouldn't worry about that).

You'll need to read the mdadm and software RAID documentation to avoid losing your data and get familiar with it. For example, are your hard drives the same size? Probably not since one is IDE and one is SATA. You'll need to ensure the RAID device you create is not too large.

comment Why does Windows not recognize files inside Linux partitions?
What I was jumping on was the assertion that the format might just 'magically change' without any sort of versioning in place to guard against this situation. That's not what happens in the real world. Also, while they couldn't use the GPL code directly, there are no barriers to examining the code and making a compatible implementation without violating the GPL. FreeBSD did it - no problem. What it comes down to is: Microsoft doesn't want to do it.
