comment How can I VNC to a machine that is using a Shared Internet connection from my iMac?
@PaulJ You write "For this to work, you would have to enable some sort of port forwarding so that inbound connections get routed to the XP machine," <--- Assuming he doesn't have double NAT then he wouldn't need port forwarding for communication within his LAN. Since you say he would need port forwarding, I wonder then, Do you think he has double NAT? Are you sure? How are you sure?

@TreyCopeland 255.255.255.0 is not a subnet, it is a subnet mask. And it means that the first 3 octets are the network portion. That means that 192.168.1 and 192.168.2 are different subnets, with the same subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 However, if you had a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 then they would both be on the same subnet, because their network portions would then be identical.

comment If I install a Linux VM, will I be able to work with ext filesystems from my Mac?
i'm sure you can, though i don't have osx and this link doesn't give a howto cnet.com/how-to/how-to-manage-ext2ext3-disks-in-os-x A more intelligent question would be HOW you connect the host HDD to your Guest OS. Maybe via networking of guest OS and host OS. I hope somebody can provide more of a howto in their answer.

comment 8 GB SD card shows up as only 6.47 GB after creating ext2 partition; how do I recover the lost space?
@DragonLord and what if you hide a volume (I recall back in the day partition magic could hide a partition). so what if you hide the first volume of a usb would windows not show anything or would it show the second(thinking it's the first)?

comment Allowing internet connection through VPN
what about perhaps 255.255.0.0 in the route add? or why not all 192.168.1.X and 255.255.255.0? and and why are you doing route add? I did a VPN without that

comment Combining 1600mhz and 1333mhz Ram
-1 downvoted because you should have realized your question is so common it is obviously going to be very googlable. People have been asking these questions overy and over again re mixing their DDR RAM for over a decade always the same answer.

comment How to tell, using a live Linux USB, if a computer is damaged?
looks like (arguably) a hassle to run tests on everything. Just find out the (arguably) easy way. Use it and see what happens! SMART is v quick to test but other tests may be a hassle, easier to test after a failure then you just test or replace the failed thing.

comment What is it that makes some USB sticks not-bootable?
@ChrisKennett if you copy zeros to the drive then the old values will get deleted. are you saying dd does the same but deletes them beforehand? that sounds a bit longwinded to me, if true, and i'd be surprised if dd were longwinded. so that sounds a bit strange, the way you describe them differently.
