comment Hosts file changes are not recognized in Windows 8
That would just revert any changes, it wouldn't make any program ignore them.

comment How can I solve the 100% disk usage issue in windows 8?
Have you tried using Resource Monitor to pinpoint which process causes that load? Depending on the programs you've got installed, it could be pretty much anything.

comment How can I find applications that currently use the portable hard disk I have attached
@JourneymanGeek At least in my case it will still only list activity. So in case some file is still opened, but nothing happening, you won't see it there.

comment Cronjob etiquette?
@michael_n And how would you get the feed updates? You'd still have to poll them (or let some service do it for you). In the end a feed is really just an alternative representation. It doesn't include or offer some kind of push notification.

comment Can anyone interpret the data in this UDP packet?
@DanielB Why don't you put that in an answer and elaborate a bit how you know? Even if the answer isn't perfect, it's a step in the right direction and might give hints to others knowing more.

comment Does the shellshock vulnerability leave any traces in log files?
To note that the paths used might differ based on your actual server, e.g. lighttpd would use /var/log/lighttpd/ instead.

comment PCIe Generation 3.0 graphic board running on old mainboard Generation 2.0 or earlier?
If your board has PCIe 2.0 then everything is fine and pretty much any PCIe 3.0 card should work without issues (although a bit slower). The only exception would be very old boards with the very first revision(s) of PCIe, which might have issues. Anything purchased within the last 4, 5 years should have PCIe 2 or higher anyway. (In my case the combo has been a Asus Striker Extreme II and a Gigabyte Geforce GTX 680)

comment WinMerge add diff. instead of overwrite
Already thought so, but guess you're out of luck for now, unless I'm missing some feature as well. :)

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).

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).

comment How to boot from 3TB HDD?
@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.
