comment Must TCP use IP?
> the fact that !TCP can go over IP does not necessarily mean TCP can go over !IP Huh? psusi is trying to be clever by using "!" as the "not operator". His comment should be read as: "the fact that something that is not TCP can go over IP does not necessarily mean TCP can go over something that is not IP". It is made in referrence to the last sentence of your answer, which showed the existence of "Alternate systems to TCP". However showing that alternatives to TCP exists does not necessarily imply nor hint that alternatives to IP exists.

comment Must TCP use IP?
TCP on the other hand is more like a messaging system or traffic control officer which directs messages/cars to the correct point. <- that is actually IP, the routers (traffic control officer) works on the IP level, not TCP. TCP is more like the logistic company that plans the number of trucks to send and their intervals to maintain a constant and reliable delivery of goods.

comment Can AVI files contain a virus?
@Synetech: the likelihood of that is just the same as the likelihood of exploiting a vulnerability in your media player, which is to say much less likely than an .avi.exe exploit.

comment Why doesn't chmod work in this case?
The easy answer is if I just tell you to do chmod 777, but that will be a very irresponsible answer. To answer your question properly, without risking the security of your server, you need to know a couple things about your existing server configuration. What is the user group of the web server (presumably Apache) process is running as? What is the user group of the user that the Apache process is running as? Should the web server be able to edit this file, e.g. on behalf of web user? And what is the user group of your current user? What is the owner and group of the file?

comment GVIM hangs when saving through GVFS' FTP
As I've written: I'm aware of GVim's internal FTP support, but they are not as well integrated as Nautilus's FTP and **it suffers from the same problem**. Also, I don't think it's true that blocking while writing is always desirable; for example Coda for Mac OSX allows you to continue editing the file while the file is uploaded in the background; there is a spinner that notifies you that the saving is still in progress so you know when to check the result (for my use case of editing a PHP file, I need to check the result on the browser).

comment Setting up a solar-powered ad-hoc network?
for the battery to charge at sunlight, the solar panel had to produce more power than the device is using and for long term usage the battery had to be able to hold for some cloudy days; I don't know if a solar panel with the size of a portable device would be able to generate sufficient power for continuous Wifi usage (you'd have to do some calculation), you may need a large solar panel so it is no longer possible to conceal.

the only problem might be that Wifi do take a lot of power, not sure if a small solar panel will provide sufficient power for continuous Wifi usage.
