comment How to block ads that appear after the ISP has redirected you?
At the end of my question I posted a screenshot of the request URL I see when I hover over the X button to close the ad. Notice that it ends with ?noredirect=1#. For some of the other ads it ends with ?page_id=32# etc. Would there be a way to detect that pattern with something like GreaseMonkey and block it?

I have WireShark. What would you check for with a packet capture?

comment Have separate bootloaders for Windows and Linux on a single hard disk?
Creative answer! But since I'd still prefer it to be on the hard disk rather than a USB stick/drive, perhaps I could add to your creativity by suggesting that a kind of a partition emulator could be created which would imitate the MBR section, so that when Windows is installed, it'd think it is overwriting the MBR, but it actually isn't.

comment What sizes should you allocate to the /, /boot, /home and swap
Related, but different from the answers given on SuperUser: askubuntu.com/questions/21719/…. Also, the necessity of swap to be 2 times the RAM, had got outdated in 1992. Now it's just a myth: superuser.com/questions/187695/…

Is there nothing available? Shucks, please point me to the right person, and I'd like to collaborate with them to modify an existing open source bootloader to be able to handle what I've mentioned in my question.

Problem is solved anyway. It was a firewall problem.

A firewall problem it was. Solved. Thanks! :) And sorry, the IP was 192.18.212.124. I had earlier temporarily connected to the 209 subnet for testing.
