comment Why am I seeing red dots on my LCD screen?
Sounds like a reasonable theory, and I will accept if no-one else blows it out the water ;-) To answer your question, it does not seem to change depending on the heat of the laptop. In fact, I cannot say that it has become worse, it just appeared and seems quite consistent. I was wondering: could this have been caused by overheating in the first place?

comment Do ISPs charge for network header bytes as part of data usage?
I guess measurement of data depends on which level of the OSI model you talk about. As a consumer who knows nothing about networking, you look at the amount of data you download or upload. I think Daniel's answer puts it a bit more in perspective (~1%), but the truth is, Khaled makes the best point in his answer: One would have to ask the ISP whether or not they actually do take that into account.

comment Wireshark: Byte order changes when data exported
OK, so network byte order is always big endian, right? So am I guaranteed that the data I am looking at on my drive is in fact correct, i.e. I don't need to switch the byte order to view it properly? I thought it is gzip data but am unable to inflate it, so I thought that maybe if I switch the byte order I could. Thanks.

How is it possible then that with netstat -p you can see the program behind a specific network connection?
