comment How can I create a 64-bit Windows 7 USB installer in a 32-bit environment?
Welcome to Super User, but please read superuser.com/about Posting links to YouTube is not useful here. (And I even feel your posts are just spam for your YouTube channel, and like everywhere on the internet that is not appreciated and will just get you banned.)

comment How to open EML files in Windows 8 Mail
Though the "Input path" in the screenshot might suggest otherwise, this also works when double-clicking an .eml file, which just opens a single message view. Nice.

Likewise, web-sniffer.net might be useful.

comment How to connect to computer without a static IP?
@Bonsi, I've heard about ISP blocking incoming requests on many occasions. Some block all as they're using some NAT and hence simply cannot tell for which subscriber the incoming request is intended. Some just don't want people to run any server and block all. And some others only block ports such as NetBIOS, CIFS and DNS to avoid subscribers accidentally opening up their computers to others, or block ports actively abused by trojans. For my provider, all this is an option that subscribers can opt in to. And my provider also blocks SMTP 25 if they notice it's an open relay.

comment chown: changing ownership not permitted, even though running as root
Then just go ahead and ask another question about that (if it has not been asked before). Your own title for this question was "chown: changing ownership not permitted". By now you know that this was related to using an external drive, and how to set the ownership for external drives, so make sure you add that information to any new question you ask. Don't ask chameleon questions please. Success!

comment chown: changing ownership not permitted, even though running as root
I've rolled back your edit; please note we're not a forum. (That's not different from Stack Overflow, which you've used a lot.) If you have additional questions, then post a new question for that. Of course, first search, as it might have been asked before.

Sounds like me that your "chown: changing ownership not permitted" has been answered then?

Surely the output of ls -l must be different when you mount the drive like above, @Nachbar90?

comment chown: changing ownership not permitted, even though running as root
Which OS are you running on your Raspberry Pi? And what file system? (For that /var/www folder.) And maybe specifying the group is required in the chown command too?

comment chown: changing ownership not permitted, even though running as root
What does ls -l give for the failing file or folder? And your "All I'm getting is chown:changing ownership of ... : Operation not permitted" applies to all files and folders, right? Or do some succeed? If some do succeed, is the file or folder that is failing any special? Like maybe that is a file that has been uploaded by Windows Explorer with some temporary name?

Too bad this company is spamming a lot. Don't buy from companies like that.

comment If all ADSL providers use the same telephone line, does it matter which provider I choose?
@Ramhound, in the Netherlands some actually are VDSL, to name just one difference.

comment Why am I seeing multiple different IP addresses reported as my public IP?
Yes, @YlliF, apart from other problems like modem NAT settings: if your IP address changes that rapidly, then many other subscribers are using the same set of IP addresses. So, trying to connect to your computer will then actually try to connect to someone else most of the time. (If the provider doesn't actually somehow block it to start with.)

comment Why am I seeing multiple different IP addresses reported as my public IP?
As an aside: if the addresses change rapidly, that might get you unexpected problems.

Note that refreshing one of those might show a different address too. (Though it might take some time to see that.)

comment How to properly obtain the ip ranges of a domain?
Are you sure dig txt google.com +short gives you what you want? Not every Google server is sending email, and it seems to me you're looking at IP ranges for SPF records there.

comment How to properly obtain the ip ranges of a domain?
It's not my cup of tea, but curious: doesn't dig google.com +short give you exactly what you need, without any further processing? (Or, was my earlier comment about the title of this question wrong, and do you also want to know about, eg., maps.google.com which in this case is the same list but could be different, or gmail.com, ajax.googleapis.com, www.google-analytics.com and so on? And all might be in very different data centers, so might have different cheaper routing as well.)
