comment Display image over SSH, no X
In your terminal program, lower the font size to something like 1x1 before viewing the image, then resize the terminal program to max size.

comment Make phone calls from computer through land line
If you want the call to traverse the PSTN or POTS system, you need a modem as described above - no way around that. Otherwise you're looking at doing calls over your Internet connection via SIP - and that's not a "landline" call per se. AFAIK Asterisk is a software PBX but I'm no expert in it - not sure if it supports SIP only or SIP and landline, etc. (it probably does.)

comment Can squid be used in reverse or any other package be used in reverse
Squid caches/proxies HTTP/HTTPS traffic. I am not sure of the protocol Minecraft uses for multiplayer, and even if it is HTTP/HTTPS not everything HTTP/HTTPS is cacheable. You would probably have to have some type of caching server that's built/developed to work with Minecraft specifically. I have not heard of one and don't think one exists.

comment Q: Is it possible to monitor SSH activity across local network (within organization)?
It's possible to tell the protocol used from the structure of the traffic, but that's an advanced operation that would be on an advanced firewall or gateway device. A basic firewall that is simply set to allow any traffic on port 80 would allow it. If you want to make it look like HTTPS traffic on the protocol level, you have set up and tunnel your SSH through an HTTPS tunnel (adding latency and slowness) - I believe there are tools to accomplish this if you have a system outside of the network that can accept incoming connections.

comment Does UEFI potentially leak encryption keys?
I have heard that the only thing battery backed in most modern systems is the clock and that CMOS and NVRAM are usually EEPROM/flash memory now. And you don't want to clear it because it also stores boot information. However - read this: en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19593860 - looks like on that model you might be able to clear NVRAM by holding power for 30 seconds?

comment What's wrong with disabling the Windows page file?
The "safe" amount depends on the programs you run and when and how much they ask for memory. There isn't a specific amount of RAM that makes it OK to turn off your page file, it's the combination of programs you will run at once. Some programs are very deterministic and predictable and their memory requirements can be easily estimated, other programs, like browsers, are not.

comment Why Windows 10 is… number ten?
It may be worth noting Microsoft skipped 13 for the Office internal version number as well.
