comment what is the best way to send a large amount of data between two computers?
Probably because Windows auto-configures the connections with some default non-routable IP - as long as they're on the same subnet and don't assign the same one this will probably work.

Yes. But if you don't have a gigabit router the connection will be much slower.

You don't even need a crossover cable with reasonably modern hardware - the NIC will autonegotiate and perform the crossover automatically.

comment keyboard with programmable lighting (through API)
Unfortunately this is basically a shopping recommendation and will therefore probably be closed. The only product currently available that I know of is this one although Corsair has announced one which will be released closer to the end of 2014.

No point in buying flash memory just to transfer files - why not just connect an Ethernet cable, manually assign addresses, and copy everything over? It's probably the fastest way if both machines support gigabit (well, except a fast USB3.0 drive, I guess).

Good idea, thanks for fixing that.

comment How to install i386 package under amd64 ubuntu/debian
No, I'm using Kubuntu Saucy on amd64. Strange - if nothing else, assuming you have all the dependencies, you can always download the package and manually install it with dpkg -i --force-architecture.

Yes, I didn't see the most recent edit. His solution will be fine for you, but mine works for any depth of subdirectories.

It doesn't recursively handle subfolders, if that's what you're asking - for that I would do something like find . -name \*.avi -type f -exec md5sum '{}' \; > hashes.md5. (At least I think that should work, I haven't tested it.) EDIT: it works.

Start the "Software and Updates" tool (or go to the repository settings in Synaptic) and check the box called "Proprietary drivers for devices (restricted)". Then run apt-get update (if the package lists don't update automatically, which they might).

Works on my machine. It is in restricted - did you enable that repository?

comment MIPS as a measurement of raw integer data processing
This would be more reasonable. I still think you're going to have a hard time turning it into a single number that you can compare, though. Especially comparing a single chip to a mainframe - there are a lot of implementation details that will complicate the comparison.

in that case, hopefully my answer is more helpful. :)

Specific information in your case can probably be found by clicking on the "What is that?" links.

comment Linking router from VPN to main network?
I haven't used a PPTP VPN before but I assume the VPN doesn't know to route packets intended for hosts 100-149 to the D-Link router. Devices 151-200 work because the DD-WRT router knows not to route those to the VPN tunnel. But I could be wrong.

comment Linking router from VPN to main network?
I'll be the first to admit that I don't know as much as I'd like about networking, but I would put the routers on different subnets in an arrangement like this.

comment How Does Integrated Graphics Card work
Note that the new Haswell CPUs also have the "Crystalwell" eDRAM chip on the same package (although not on the same die). This is 128MB of very fast memory shared between the CPU and GPU (I don't know all the details). Intel calls it "L4" cache.

comment SSH pipe include command
Won't work - using head -n -1 will get rid of the last line of the file, not the first. You want to do this: ssh user@example.com "fswebcam -d /dev/video0 --save -" | tail -n +2 > img1 EDIT: @hlovdal is correct as well.

comment Why instruction memory in MIPS CPU is read only?
I don't know anything about MIPS specifically, but this technique is used to increase security by preventing some types of buffer overflow exploits (like stack smashing). Advantages - well, you can do many things with self-modifying code, but it tends to be less readable and maintainable than the alternative, so it's often considered a bad idea anyway.
