comment What is the fastest way to securely overwrite an old hard drive?
@Rookie You did understand that correctly. In your case the use of DBAN is inadvisable.

comment How to kill a certain website with batch files
You could write some sort of script that watches the title of the chrome.exe window and kills the process when 'Facebook' appears. I just don't know if it is possible with .bat files.

comment Setting up a Linux gateway & network bridge?
To me it is not clear what you want your Linux router to do: NAT or bridging. Can you post your /etc/network/interfaces file?

comment What is the purpose of a routing protocol?
@Linker3000 Chatty, open-ended questions are not viewed as off-topic, but as not constructive. This question is constructive but off-topic.

comment What is the purpose of a routing protocol?
@Linker3000 This is a constructive question, routing protocols were built for a specific purpose, which is asked for and therefore answerable in the Q&A format the FAQ prescribes. It is off-topic though, see my previous post.

comment What is the purpose of a routing protocol?
@slhck The FAQ directs that questions should be about computer software. Questions can be asked in many forms, one of which is "I would like other to explain ... to me". Routing protocols are standards, not software. If this question was about manipulating routing protocols with specialized software (like packet inspection, and getting it to work), it would have been on topic in my point of view.

There is not a single problem with you answering your own question, but please keep question and answer separate (i.e. post what is currently in the question area in the answer box, then you are free to accept your own answer)

comment Google Chrome briefly hangs before rendering a new tab
As far as I was able to see, there were no bug reports about this problem. Could it be a conflicting application?

comment Google Chrome briefly hangs before rendering a new tab
Have you tried disabling the default "New Tab"-Page? You can do so with the extension "New Tab Redirect". Try changing it to about:blank. Does it make any difference?

Thank you for the answer, I suppose there is no other way. But do you know what the error means by any chance?

comment Windows 7 32-bit: format/combine two physical hard disks as a single partition
It is a spanned volume, so there is no fault tolerance. If one of the disks fails the whole setup fails. A solution is to go with mirrored volumes, a more secure option. The drawback is that storage space is halfed at least. Take a look at the table here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID#Standard_levels for more information.
