comment What's the reason behind “Stereo Mix” becoming a missing option?
I see. Wasn't sure because of the Realtek mention - recent Realtek chips I've used worked just fine.

comment Windows 7 setup doesn't recognize my Intel SSD 320 series drive
What mass storage (SATA) controller do you have? That is, what motherboard do you have?

comment Remove drop-down menu for reload button in Firefox 4 and add drop-down menu for back button
Ehm.. I have no idea what you're talking about. Over here, it's still all the way it used to be. Screenshot maybe?

comment Firefox 4 default address bar behaviour
Nice! I should also note that just omitting the colon (which triggers Firefox to think that "define" is a protocol) works, too. So "define menagerie" and "define: menagerie" yield the same results.

comment Check if 32 or 64-bit Windows OS via registry
I just checked it - it's present in both my XP (x32) and 7 (x64) PC's windows registry. Which key in the registry is the first you can't find?

In what way do they not work?

comment Choppy Bluray playback on my PC
I agree. I'd guess it's just something about the disc, may be a manufacturing error.

It would be interesting to know the CPU load during playback.

comment How to pass an argument to a Windows Scheduled Task with spaces in it
It would be helpful if you specified which program you're using exactly, as the correct wrapping of arguments is at the discretion of the program and not Scheduled Taks. WinSCP, for example, expects double quotes (""..."") when you have to nest quotes.

Wait.. what? "Not compatible"? What gives?

comment Pinging localhost versus pinging 127.0.0.1
Precisely - since Windows Vista, the Windows networking stack prefers IPv6.

comment DD-WRT: How to allow port forwarding to apply to requests originating from inside the LAN?
Oh, how I love buggy DD-WRT releases! (Establishing a connection from clients used to take ages for some time... until I found out that host names in static leases should only contain alphabetic characters. Arrgh!)

comment DD-WRT: How to allow port forwarding to apply to requests originating from inside the LAN?
That is weird - on my LAN, this setting is exactly what makes the difference. Which build are you using? Maybe you should double-check your port forwarding - maybe there's something wrong there that you missed (maybe the IPs have changed between your external and internal access, thus breaking port forwardings?)

comment What are some computers that have at least an i5 and windows 7 32bit?
The licenes are interchangeable, but the OEM and System Builder media usually contain only one version (32 or 64) of Windows, in contrast to retail media wich contains both.

comment Is my router “clogged” after short time of heavy usage?
Sorry, that should not have been sent - I was in the middle of thinking. 16 should be okay, too - but 8 really are too little.

comment Is my router “clogged” after short time of heavy usage?
Also, for router RAM: You might argue on that, but I'd consider 64MB the absolute minimum for traffic- and connection heavy use. It depends a bit on the router's features, though - so your mileage may vary.

For currently open TCP connections in your router, you should check your router's manual - whether or not you can view them and where depends on the router's user interface. If there's only one computer on the network, you can also try "netstat" in the command line to see which connections your computer has. This usually shows all IP connections, though.

1. It's not very likely, but you could try to deactivate your router's firewall.

Are we talking HTTP uploads/downloads or more like P2P protocols?
