comment Netgear router/powerline adapter assigning wrong IP address via DHCP
Hmmm, that URL made me trigger a spam flag, and vote to delete, but I guess the answer could be useful to future visitors after all...

comment How can I watch only adverts on YouTube
I thought ads were only played before videos? Then it seems easy to stop viewing when the ad has finished? (But it would be a quite random experience I guess.)

It will be moved when people vote to do so. (You'll then also start without the downvotes again.)

comment USB “condom” to allow USB storage, but protect from (hidden) keyboards and power spikes
I wouldn't mind a "You connected a (or: a second) keyboard, enable?" prompt when I plugged in a USB drive, but I can see how it might be difficult to answer such prompt when no mouse or keyboard has been approved yet... Also, I thought USB was prone to direct memory access attacks, but apparently that's Thunderbolt and all. But I'd not mind prompts for Thunderbolt either. So your link at least proves some restrictions might be possible, but it might be harder than we think...

Future visitors might very well be doing that, @EmmyS? (And Super User and other Stack Exchange Q&A sites are very much intended to help future visitors too.)

comment log password for ssh login failures
By design, questions on Super User (and other Stack Exchange sites) are supposed to be helpful for future readers too. So, I feel a warning is certainly in place.

comment log password for ssh login failures
Like I commented on the question: this would be a REALLY bad idea: if I make a minor typo, you'd know 99% of my password by peeking into the logs. (And so does anyone who has access to those logs.) If you need something like statistics, like to show password strength, then calculate that strength and log that, not the password.

comment Windows cannot format the Drive
I'm seeing more and more spam for this Drive The Life thing. Don't trust spammers, so I'd say: be careful downloading drivers from 3rd parties.

comment How can I delete Time Machine files using the commandline
Hmmm, mystery. Even more so, your answer is important: don't use [bypass] rm -r on hard-linked directories. (But I don't have to explain that to you.)
