comment Why does dd sometimes not wait until data is written?
Are you sure /dev/sdc is an actual device on your system and you aren't writing to a file /dev/sdc? Do an ls --color /dev - /dev/sdc should be yellow if it's a device.

comment LFS (Linux From Scratch) USB boot crashing
Not too familiar with LFS - are you using an initramdisk? When booting via USB you really should use the UUID of the partition, because 1) you have no guarantee that the kernel will put your USB device at any fixed /dev/sda, etc. 2) if USB drivers are not built into your kernel it won't see them until the modules are loaded. Last I heard, the kernel cannot take something like boot=uuid... - so you need a utility from the initramdisk to mount the appropriate partition by UUID. So you might need to implement something like that.

comment How to send feature codes with a modem using AT commands
Might have to do another command to take the phone "off hook" first Can't think of what it is off the top of my head. Google "Hayes AT commands" for a list.

comment How to send feature codes with a modem using AT commands
Looks like a phone number you need to dial, so you'd use ATDT*140*707# to dial it.

comment How to customize BartPE for Unattended operation?
BartPE (last release in 2006) is obsolete unless you're running this on older, XP-compatible hardware. You should look into WinPE instead from Microsoft's WAIK kit instead.

comment How does an Arabic web browser work
Internationalized domain names (IDNs) are encoded in DNS using Punycode - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punycode - but the browser will render the domain in your browser's address bar according to your locally set language.
