comment Tired of waiting for www.google-analytics.com — can a browser setting “opt me out”?
0.0.0.0 is a valid IP address. At least, software had better NOT be special casing it. The default route is 0.0.0.0/0. Very different from 0.0.0.0/32.

comment Why is a .ISO called a .ISO?
Wanted to point out that some programs used different extensions such as CDR or IMG. But ISO seemed to become the standard eventually.

@RandyHoward: ulimit -t will limit the CPU time used, but rsync generally uses very little CPU, being limited by I/O.

comment Will HDD's permission settings work when plugged on another computer/OS?
@PJC: With the right software, or a dev environment, you can read files without taking ownership by using impersonation.

comment Looking at the screen in Windows 8 hurts my eyes
Big agreement. I run my desktop monitor (inside, fluorescent lighting, no outside windows) at 20% after doing calibration and contrast adjustments.

comment Can a Windows PC do anything while it is sleeping?
It doesn't require special hardware support, unless you mean keeping the power lights off. Windows or Linux could do it by only waking the CPU and RAM, then running a special process instead of resuming the complete system where it left off. Hard drives and displays can already sleep independently of the CPU, so just leave them turned off.
