comment Why is Chrome forcing SSL when I try to hit my domain?
ah I just tested without being logged in (whether normal window or incognito window) and it went to https google.com About a year ago it only went to https when logged in.

@MaQleod en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Message_Block SMB protocol, that page mentions those ports I listed.. and about authentication.

comment Is it possible to edit TCP and UDP packets?
there is a program called netsed, I haven't used it before, and it's *nix based so you'd have a little linux machine with two interfaces doing it.

comment Why is Chrome forcing SSL when I try to hit my domain?
dunno and this may be irrelevant but does it make a difference whether you are logged in to google or not? I find if I go to www.google.com it goes https if i am logged in. I also have an issue with a win xp sp2 machine running chrome, that when it tries to go to twitter it goes to https and gives en error. other browsers are fine

comment Why does NTP require bi-directional firewall access to UDP port 123?
@VMai the person that said that on superuser.com/questions/141772/… gave no example, but I think he meant to enable outgoing connections, packets coming in within them. That is different to the concept that "ntpd requires full bidirectional access to the privileged UDP port 123. ..." which sounds like an incoming connection. If he wanted to allow incoming and outgoing using related/established then he'd need 4 rules. 2 for incoming connections, 2 for outgoing connections.

I googled this one a few days ago, it can manage without an incoming connection made.

comment Is it safe to use a laptop with a dropped screw somewhere in the motherboard?
@FrankThomas well, maybe a good one for electronics.stackexchange cos they may have seen portable electronic devices with something metal loose, and diagnosed it correctly, and if it did cause that, they might know. If not, then even saying 1% of the time might be a big over-estimate. Remember that a laptop screw is as light as a feather not like a screwdriver

comment Transfer disk contents *without* cloning tools
well, you could try 'swapping the assigned drive letters'(as you say) no idea what method you have in mind, you didn't say, but try it and report back. try stating the method you have in mind. some may suggest other methods.

comment Sending input to command line program from text/Batch file
I hate to break it to you, but it's Sending INPUT not reading input. If anything you're WRITING input not reading it. Besides the fact that it's in Windows, you're using the command prompt that's not DOS. i have corrected your question on that.
