comment Why are all these email ports listening on a new Windows 8.1 install?
Are you sure the scanning tool isn't giving bogus results ? This looks as if it reports the contents of a standard services file in stead of doing a real, proper scan. How did you perform the scan ?

@DavidPostill Outlook is a client, not a server. Even with Outlook running this can't happen.

comment Word for Mac keeps converting PDF figures to bitmap
I'm not able to reproduce this in Word 2011. Has to be some property of the PDF file itself that causes this.

I'm well aware of that, but how the details work out exactly isn't something I will hazard a guess at without trying some things myself first.

comment Word for Mac keeps converting PDF figures to bitmap
Picture and object can be quite different, depending on the actual type of the inserted file. E.g.: On the Windows version of Word PDF is always object, not a picture. I don't have a Mac here. I see if I can reproduce the behavior later when I'm at home.

How did you insert the PDF in the Word document. As picture, as object ?

@user2924019 In that case you should be able to find several working combinations :-)

comment Is it possible to daisy chain Powerline network adapters?
@user2924019 If there is one thing that I have learned about Powerline is that proper adherence to standards is non-existent. The protocols might be officially the same but compatibility is usually problematic between vendors. Even 2 devices (same model, but different batches) from the same manufacturer may have issues between them. And sometimes it works when it shouldn't. Even if you can pair them in 2 groups, that is no guarantee they won't interfere with each other. You will have to experiment.

comment Where is the data inside a disk image stored when it is mounted in a virtual CD-ROM?
@user20574 Turning on compression doesn't always work... If the ISO is badly compressible (e.g. video-DVD) it will just be stored "as-is" regardless of NTFS compression settings. I had some discussions a few months ago with someone who was certain his Windows was broken because NTFS compression didn't give him more disk-space. All the files he wanted to compress where zip/rar archives and/or MKV videos. It took a while to convince him you can't repeat compression on a file and expect the file to get smaller on every run.
