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).

Cloning your hard disk and stripping the existing Windows license is not an option?

comment hot key indication in inno setup
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).

comment How to boot from 3TB HDD?
@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.

Windows 8 supports both UEFI and BIOS - that's no save way to determine whether a system is an UEFI system.

comment After visiting Fiji (on the dateline), and then going back in time, can't access github.com
Very odd, and this is a permanent issue, even if you try to reload the page several times? Also are you trying to open the http or the https version of Github?

But your PC's clock is set properly? For example, right now it should be 8:33 AM on the 28th July, if you set your time zone to UTC/GMT (without DST).

comment Make files which starts with a dote visible for every user
You might not be able to do so, but as said, this really depends on the FTP client. For example, I'm using WinSCP and it shows me files such as .htaccess just fine (but greyed out). I remember Windows Explorer not doing that when viewing an FTP server. A tiny "hack" for single dotted files: Upload a file with the same name and delete it immediately. This will work in some clients (like Windows Explorer), but I'm aware that this is no solution for the long run.

comment Adding extra left margin in pdf print without using Acrobat Pro
So you want to have the margins embedded into the file? Then yes, the second option is one way to go, but I'm not too deep into that topic either. :)

comment Taskbar icon not changing when new mail arrives
It seems to bug out in general. For example, if I receive a new mail, click the sidebar on the mail entry to mark it as read (since I know the contents), the taskbar icon won't change (keeps the envelope icon). I have to open and close at least one of the new mails to update it.

Which browser are you using? This sounds like some too strict security setting.

Weird, did you try installing the drivers manually? Maybe some driver issue - otherwise no idea right now.

"If I remember correctly". :) Do you see other shared ressources like folders? Or nothing at all? Later case, you might have different workgroups set?
