comment Wireless Access Point vs. Wireless Router
So are you suggesting that option 2 is better? What if the modem doesn't have enough processing power to route the data to 15 clients? Is there a metric I can use to figure this out?

comment Available RAM per core for mobile i7 processors
I was not thinking of the 4 GB limitation for 32 bit systems. What I heard was that certain motherboards couldn't make all of the RAM available to all CPU cores (in 16+ GB systems).

comment Has anyone seen this in “Folder and search options”
The only thing I can think of is trying out Microsoft's Speech Recognizer recently. I don't see any setting related to this in the Control Panel.

comment Dell D630 light sensor and backlight in Windows 7
If you press START + X, do you see a place to adjust your screen brightness? I don't see this with my laptop. Perhaps the D830 uses a different method to control the brightness, like APIC.

comment How can I circumvent BitTorrent throttling?
I don't know the details of DPI, but simply encrypting the connection in the BitTorrent doesn't work. One ISP (Acanac) offers an encrypted SSH tunnel for its customers and that seems to work.

DPI recognizes encrypted BitTorrent traffic and throttles it.

comment How to rebuild a Li Ion laptop battery?
Silver conductive epoxy should work but I have not tried this. You should also consider that the epoxy is expensive (40$ per syringe).
