comment Windows XP emachine keeps restarting continously
If you can't boot from USB or CD, then then that is a fundamental issue you have that has nothing to do with XP. And when you can boot from CD then do a repair installation off an XP CD making sure the service pack matches. It may be worth stating the model of your computer and motherboard, in case others have had the issue.

comment Cygwin not reading config file
can you include examples of what you are writing and what you expect? I wonder if you need to say HOST * in ssh_config if you want something for any ssh regardless of what host is specified

comment Going silent: will an SSD with a newer but 'slower' CPU run as fast?
I guess that even with a fanless case you might have s size restriction. I guess your question could be more one of, what's the fastest processor that a small fanless heatsink can cool.. I don't know though. Perhaps you could state the size limitations of the heatsink..

comment Going silent: will an SSD with a newer but 'slower' CPU run as fast?
You could try running a motherboard outside of a computer case with a good fanless cpu heatsink, and see how it goes with indoor air flow cooling it rather than a computer case with a fan.. And yeah an SSD can make even a "slow" cpu system pretty fast. For some reason my laptop with its core 2 duo seems slower than a comp I built once that had a much slower CPU and SSD, I don't know why. But definitely SSD makes a huge difference. The company NoFen or NoFan, produce a heatsink that can cool a 95 degree cpu. It's big.

comment Why can't my second router (in DMZ) automatically find DNS settings?
out of interest, is your second router(i.e. the downstream one), the one further from the wall, is that getting its IP via DHCP from the first router? or is it getting its IP statically

comment Programs like Chrome and Ms Word have gone a bit animated and slow
@krowe2 Well those that can't figure out what its asking, aren't going to be able to figure out the answer. It has had attention, over 200 views.. But it's such an obscure problem that others haven't run into, that people don't know the answer. Chris understands what i'm asking, as does psycho. And since I restarted I no longer have it so those that could offer suggestions that might help find what it is, the suggestions are relevant but I can't personally apply them.

comment Can I turn an SSH dynamic port forward to a VPN to use for the whole system?
I haven't done anything like it before but this seems to cover that help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH_VPN "You must be using OpenSSH version 4.3 or later". and wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VPN_over_SSH I've heard it can be done but i've got no idea really. Just thought those two links might help.

comment How to setup a HTTPS Proxy on a raspberry pi
if you want to encrypt everything, then a vpn is for that. I've heard that ssh can be bent to that but not sure how. And ssl wouldn't afaik. But VPNs are built for that.

comment Laptop only boots from USB
I'd have thought when the BIOS can't boot from hard disk it normally gives a message saying so, and all that stuff about whether you can or can't get into the BIOS being tied to all this and not being able to use the normal key, seems a bit odd.

I tend to use copy/paste rather than forward, but you can begin by viewing the headers if you have a question re the headers

comment sed adds characters where it shouldn't add
if the suspect was a funny char in the file then you could use xxd to view the file but in this case it's not, it's just a regex thing, * matching 0 characters hence matching a position at the beginning.
