comment windows 8 x64bit installation on windows 7 x32bit
It sounds like it may not be booting to the installation medium, ensure it is set set in the BIOS or look for an option to choose the medium. Alternatively, start the install when logged into Windows 7 by accessing your DVD drive from Windows File Explorer (Winkey+E) and start the setup routine from there. This will modify the boot record to ensure you boot to the medium containing the install image without modifying BIOS options.

comment Is it possible to modify (or create) an scheduled task in Windows command-line to remove the need for user login?
/NP A value that indicates that no password is stored. The task does not run interactively as the given user. Only local resources are available. See: ss64.com/nt/schtasks.html

comment What is the cause of a vertical white line on an LCD monitor?
Is there only one horizontal line? Does it extend fully across, left-to-right? How many pixels in height is it? Can you identify anything unique about when the flickering occurs, like movement or heat?

comment Is there any benefit to using IPv6 on my home network?
Supernetting and subnetting is a superficial categorization. Many RFCs (1518, 1519, 1918, 6598, and others) were simply trying to break the internet up in this way because of the rapid growth of the internet and the subsequent value an individual IPv4 has when they have been depleted. It was the parallel to Domain Name squatting; IP allocation squatting. IPv6 restores the spirit of the Internet Protocol that all devices become publicly addressable. The Brave New World will see see RFCs addressing this new social problem of handling privacy and security when NAT is redundant.

Your statement that IP is hierarchical is wrong. It is not. RFC 791 1.2 specifies the scope as being The internet protocol is specifically limited in scope to provide the functions necessary to deliver a package of bits (an internet datagram) from a source to a destination over an interconnected system of networks. There are no mechanisms to augment end-to-end data reliability, flow control, sequencing, or other services commonly found in host-to-host protocols. The internet protocol can capitalize on the services of its supporting networks to provide various types and qualities of service.

comment How do I make a machine “blank screen” for a period of time (as a penalty) if certain noise levels are reached?
@aslum you would have to include an algorithm to gauge sincere voice patterns

comment Automatically unzip/untar downloaded files?
1. You must trust your unzip binary 1a. "unzip" could add execution routines to all files of a certain MIME type 1b. "unzip" could run with su privileges, allowing extraction to a normally privileged path like /etc/cron.daily 1c. "unzip" could change permissions of extracted files 2. even if unzip is safe, it does remove one level of file obfuscation; e.g. if a friend sent you a file they suspected of being a virus and asked you to look at it, and it auto-unzips from its clear warning zipped filename to an innocent sounding name, you may forget and curiously click -> potential Uh-oh!
