Related: What exactly happens when you browse a website in your browser? (But this very question is far too broad for my liking.)

comment Is it safe to run a hard drive destroyer on a virtual machine?
Let me judge anyway: life's too short to try to destroy someone else's harddrive. Or to help people trying to do that.

I see a (nice) question in the title, but then also some more unrelated questions in the text? Please edit to limit to one question per post, and add details about that; see How to ask.

comment Very strange networking issue
Kent, now that you've used the same shortcut cable to connect to the router or the switch, am I right that the summary is: it works when you plug that cable into the router, but not if you plug the very same cable into one of the ports of the switch? (Where in both cases the other end of that same cable is connected to the quad gang outlet, and all other wiring is unchanged too.)

comment Very strange networking issue
Just to be sure: I was not referring to speed or cross-cable auto-sensing. I am just wondering if some devices (in this case: the router) might have some more auto-correction thing built-in, as for some reason the same cable plugged into the router works, but plugged into any port of one of the 2 switches does not.

comment Can I get my Crashplan encryption key with just my passphrase
Again, @Nicholas, I don't know CrashPlan. But common sense dictates that anyone who allows a user to select some security option that might make that user lose their data, would show big fat warnings to said user. And as I assume you would remember seeing such warning, I'd say that it's actually very likely that you're NOT using any special security at all. So, it's likely that the passphrase should simply suffice, and I suggest asking their customer support again. Maybe even point them to this very question. Did the link that Mike gave help you?
