comment Communicating with devices on a different subnet
Yes on your first question. Per your second question, you are mostly correct - many TCP/IP stacks will ignore incoming traffic that isn't matching the IP/subnet mask unless the adapter is in "promiscuous mode."

comment Which one is RSA encryption algorithm?
Likely, especially since it says "Plaintext Message to encode" - what you enter in the form is not converted to an integer but remaining as text. 1 in Unicode or UTF-8 does not translate to the literal number 1, it's equivalent to two bytes 0x00 0x31 for Unicode or merely the single byte 0x31 for UTF-8.

DisplayPort 1.2 is chainable, HDMI/DVI (or HDMI/DVI over a DisplayPort physical plug/socket as can happen) is not. displayport.org/cables/…

comment What's wrong with my boss's laser printer?
Betting the toner was wet or had more moisture in it than it should have. You may try replacing the drum of the printer if you can, and if you can't or that fails, replace the printer.

comment Dead motherboard. How can I save the software on my old hard drive?
Once you get running, you should go through all your software's help screens and record any keys that you can just in case this happens again. Belarc Advisor (www.belarc.com) can be useful for retrieving the keys of some software as well.

comment Network card names (eth0, eth1) missing after replacing the motherboard
try something like grep firmware /var/log/dmesg or grep firmware /var/log/kern.log.

comment Network card names (eth0, eth1) missing after replacing the motherboard
If the above doesn't work, look carefully in /var/log/dmesg or at the boot text of your system. Your NIC may be recognized but a non-free firmware file may be needed for it to actually show up and function. May be the case if it's certain types of Intel cards or others (like tg3).

comment run a computer without RAM?
See edits. The kernel paging in swapped memory is not different than a program loading or a program reading/writing to disk. It just happens within the kernel and behind the scenes of a user process, but not behind the scenes of the kernel.

comment OpenH264 won't work properly on Waterfox, what am I missing?
What OS? Could this be an issue of a 32-bit plugin or codec not working on a 64-bit browser?
