comment Does the link layer pass frames or datagrams to the network layer?
"link layer" rings a bell with me for some reason, but a quick search shows it's called the "data link layer" in the ISO OSI model. not "link layer". and the "data link layer" has a logical link is split into 2 sublayers - logical link control, and media access control microsoft.com/mspress/books/sampchap/5507a.aspx microsoft.com/mspress/books/sampchap/5507/0735614563-06.gif

comment Why isn't my computer turning on?
@IsaiahBugarin you could take a small wire strip the ends and touch one end on one pin, then drag the other end over other pins. that may be a quick way to try to find what pins - if any 2, to connect to get it on. But bad motherboard seems likely..'cos your symptoms don't seem normal at all.. that it doesn't routinely turn on only sometimes. And that your power supply on a basic test, seemed to turn on fine every time.

@darr247 points out an issue with your answer, but also, the image next to your nick ot grossly offensive to many people - to many christians or to people that sympathise with their feelings.

comment Why isn't my computer turning on?
In your Q you mention that you shorted all the pins. How? What did you do to do that? Try shorting all the pins again, does it go on consistently? Narrow down what pins need to be shorted to get it on consistently. Maybe not all need to be shorted. Maybe you connected the power on button to the wrong pins. Check the motherboard manual for the pin numbers and which to connect it to

Do this as a small test. This is totally safe. Anything outside the PSU Box is DC and not high voltage or current. If you're worried you can do this(sticking the paperclip in) while no power goes to the PSU. Take a paperclip, bend it, stick it so one end goes in the green and one end goes in a black. That should turn the power supply on. You can do this when the power supply is not connected to the motherboard. Does it go on constantly? Connect it to a fan, does it move a fan? (I suppose it should move the fan)

comment Is it possible to have an ATX and a mini ITX boards running under one (ATX) PSU?
if playing this game then a good idea to test the current with a multimeter. also bear in mind you may need to connect the multimeter in series to test the current. see if the current is less than it would normally be, i'm not an electronics geek but it may be less current goes to each board.

this link mentions that Acorn had the floppy drive in the keyboard forums.walan.org/topic/1122-new-keyboard Look on google images for acorn computers and see if anything looks a bit familiar to you. i don't know about fax and printer and a phone handset though.

comment How force Chrome to use google.com search engine without https
they can write their curiousity in a comment, but really the question isn't how do i do it with a proxy. though if all direct answers are exhausted i'd give such an approach a look. iglvzx may be onto something, though testing it, setting up a DNS server which i've never done before,looks like a big project, not a 5/10min thing to set up!

says about using DNS to point to nosslsearch.google.com Looks promising, but if I go to that URL Directly it still goes to https. maybe i'm doing something wrong there but it doesn't seem to work

that other question's answers don't provide a solution to stop it. It's annoying 'cos i'm using Privoxy and would like filters to operate on google and they don't 'cos it is using https

@david I have no "preferences" option so you mean support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=95653 the wrench then options/preferences, then basic, then manage search engines. anyhow, it doesn't stop it from going to https for google.

comment two monitors running two different applications
Why close this question? Maybe the answer to his question is simply what slhck said. Most people wouldn't know about that since most people don't use two monitors. I think what @slhck said is worth him posting as an answer. Since it directly answers his question, and it's not obvious either(except to those that have already done it and know)!
