comment How to block an IP address from sending or receiving traffic?
I'd long since given up; but that might be a good note. We learned that there is no such thing as traffic going to a LAN address. At first it seemed natural: google.com:80 --> 10.0.0.78:48231. Except because of an undocumented shortcoming, the firewall cannot understand traffic going to an internal address. Instead the traffic goes to the public WAN IP: google.com:80 --> 80.82.64.117:37228. And then sometime later, someplace else, traffic goes from pfSense: 10.0.0.7:37228 --> 10.0.0.78:48231. That's why you can't apply firewall rules on the WAN: they don't work.

comment Event ID:4797 “An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for an account.”
But the question remains. "An attempt was made to query the existence of a blank password for an account." Who attempted to query the existance of a blank password for an account? I see this answer explains how to disable these security-auditing events. But who is generating them? Where is the IP address of the person who tried to login as me with no password?

comment How to place SuperFetch cache on an SSD?
I had since looked into it; and turns out my motherboard doesn't support it. The SouthBridge does, but the motherboard is missing some sort of glue that makes it enabled.

comment Is it possible to recover a computer from a failed BIOS update?
Which it did not. Leaving the alternative of spending money to have the thing shipped back.
