comment Does increasing upload or download speed reduce ping?
Imagine a lorry load of blue-rays arrive every hour, you unload them, plug them into a massive stack of drives, load up the new (upload) disks into the lorry, and send it off. This would be a massive upload and download speed, but the latency would be very poor (average at best 1.5 hours, could be worse depending how far the lorries have to travel). If you start filling up the lorries, a packet may have to wait for a 2nd lorry after it is ready, so increasing latency more.

comment Is Visual Studio 2013 Community actually free?
Are you using "free" as a contraction of "free of charge"? I am not. ( Nelson Mandela was not free of charge, but he is free. ) With respect to the 3 softwares I mentioned above, the only limitation in the licence is to stop you taking away other peoples freedom.

comment Using a Raspberry Pi from another network
You will have to answer the following questions: Do you have a static IP address? Do you have an IP per device? Do you have a publicly rotatable IP address? or are you behind a nat?, if so what type of nat? To get us started type /sbin/ifconfig and the result to the question.

It is not free like Gnu, Linux, Mono Develop etc. but it may be free of charge. So while you don't have to pay to get/use it, there are many restrictions on what you can do with it.

comment Renaming files,folders and subfolders recursively by using batch script
find . -iname "*.ods" -print0 | xargs -0 rename "s/V1/newdocV2/g" — this will work in Gnu/Linux, or maybe Microsoft's Powershell (I have been told it is Posix compliant, but not seen it.
