comment Unreliable network
Just to add, some router status pages (only know those of AVM though) will show you stats like CPU and/or memory consumption, so that might make it easier to tell whether you somehow reached the cap (which I still consider unlikely, even with lots of stuff on the network).

comment Unreliable network
This sounds really odd. You shouldn't have to reboot your router at all. It should just work for days, weeks, months. Have you tried testing the network with everything disconnected and then add just one device after the other to determine when/where (and why) it becomes unstable? This really sounds like some device might have faulty wiring, causing additional voltage on the network cable.

comment How to directinize bluetooth signal?
Yes, it could be as easy as that, essentially creating a reflector (similar to a classic satellite dish or tin foil hat if you want). You won't get any stronger signal just by wrapping tin foil around it though.

comment PC as W-LAN router
You shouldn't need any additional software or drivers assuming your PC is properly configured and has the necessary software running (like a DHCP or internet connection sharing enabled). The specifics depend on the operating system though.

comment Choosing between RAM frequency and timings
Hm... According to Toshiba it supports "DDR3 800 MHz", which is almost as vague as it can get. So it either supports up to PC3-6400 (2 * 400 MHz) or up to PC3-12800 (2 * 800 MHz). I assume the first, so pick the PC3-8500 due to lower timings. If you'd like to make extra sure, grab a tool such as CPU-Z and compare the timings/frequency displayed.

comment How do I find and kill a php loop (process)?
Also, for the future, there's a neat, easy, and efficient trick to avoid such extreme amount of outgoing API calls. Simply cache everything (not always possible of course) using something as simple as copy('remotefile', 'temporarylocalfile'); You may run that as a cronjob or just in its own infinite loop with some built-in waiting time. (Or just use any provided utility like wget for this.)

comment Windows 8 Hardware Diagnostics
Did you check Windows' event logs? Even if the PC reboots automatically, there should be some entry. Also try writing down the error code as well as the location/originating library (if given).

It's a system setting. I'm not sure you can force it for your program on some other PC.

comment How to boot from 3TB HDD?
Okay, that's interesting - didn't know that! Although there are countries where the OEM terms and conditions don't apply or take full effect (like Germany).

@Ramhound Ah, okay, that's more likely, although still not 100% guaranteed (especially considering budget machines and the like).

@Ramhound Of course, but you can't do so just by determining whether the PC runs Windows 8 or some other OS.

Yes, very likely it is indeed a classic BIOS system then.
