comment How to use a Linux system as a land phone
@IndrajithIndraprastham: An FXO card is something that plugs into an expansion slot (e.g. PCIe) inside your computer. You can't connect your analogue phone socket on your wall to an Ethernet port on your computer.

comment How to convert a Persian pdf file to Microsoft word format?
I can cut and paste text from that using Chrome's built-in PDF viewer - there is no obvious garbling of the characters but the direction of text is mostly reversed. I don't read Persian so can't tell whether the actual characters are all OK - but they look superficially OK. With a different PDF viewer, eVince, the main problem is selecting contiguous text. Unfortunately I don't think I can help with your problem.

comment Shredding files in windows
@ShinTakezou: As your first reference says, overwriting (once) addresses data remanence. There is no need related to conventional hard disk file storage that isn't addressed by overwriting once. See you only have to wipe a disk once and The uban legend of multipass disk overwrite
