comment How to send an HTTP request for a certain domain name to a specific IP address?
The problem with this is if you're wanting to test your application with subdomains, etc.

You could still shutdown with the power button.

comment Can a domain name be registered, but have it not appear on search engines?
You could do a simple htaccess file with a passphrase that is known by those who know your domain. This would at least prevent "outsiders" from accessing your site from a search.

comment How to update graphics driver when it needs the new driver to install?
Did you do the Automatically Detect Hardware? If so, try downloading the installation files instead.

comment Is a Dell XPS 15 L502x with three 24" monitors (1920 x 1200) possible?
I don't use any. My lappy supports three monitors out of the box. My desktop supports 6 monitors. I have no need for the adapter unless I want to add more to the laptop (which the boss won't approve).

Here is the adapter that I've read the best reviews on. newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2XB1278870 You do need to be careful with cheaper ones as they seem to have lots of issues. As far as CPU load, I couldn't really tell you how much of a performance hit it would take.

@Ramhound I have a MSI GS70 that supports 3 external monitors as well as the primary laptop screen. In total, I have 4 monitors rocking on my development lappy.

Stay away from USB2.0 VGA adapters. They are horrible. The experience is like being RDP'd into the desktop. Everything is laggy and slow. You're best bet may be to get a USB3 VGA or DVI adapter and a USB3 Hub. If you do go this route, make sure that you get a powered hub.

comment What's the best and 'fastest' way to secure data on an external HDD?
This is the route that I would go. If you have TrueCrypt on your primary system drive and set this container with the same passphrase, you can opt to have this file auto mount whenever the computer is booted.

comment Encrypt HP Laptop's Second SSD
What encryption type did you use (Currently AES is the only supported hardware accelerated encryption)? Is AES hardware accelerated with your CPU (Not all CPUs have this instruction set)? Moved this to an answer to provide illustration.

comment web-based interactive MAN pages
Your original question was about the man content and less about shell command explanation. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

comment IPS attack message error when I visit a website
This means that it could just be an IP Address near yours in the range in which your ISP provides. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with you. You can contact the owner of the site you wish to visit and see if they can unblock your IP specifically.

comment Disable updates
@DanielB that is correct. Also nice to note that if they are in a group like in the image I posted above, you can click on the group name to select the whole list and then right click on one of them to hide update for all selected.

comment Disable updates
When you click on it, it should highlight the row in which case you can then right click on the item.

comment I've ported my website locally installed to Internet. Is it secure?
If the malicious person were to upload a php script and called something to randomly delete or upload files, then this could be a concern. Always make sure that you're running the latest updates of WordPress and that you're using trusted plugins. It can also be useful to run the Web Server with a different user that has limited permissions outside of the web directory.

comment I've ported my website locally installed to Internet. Is it secure?
Since you have the local IP address of your Wordpress site, you can log into the site locally instead of going through the external port which would help against the HTTPS issue.

1. If you're using WPA2, then you should be okay. 2. Yes they could. I've seen several instances of where a Wordpress site was hijacked and allowed someone to upload files to the site. Typically the most common types of breaches will be to install and use your server to host a virus.

comment Does VLC Player run on multi core machine?
This sounds like it has more to do with your hardware than the software. What CPU/GPU are you using? Also what are the sizes of the videos? Your hard drive may not be reading them fast enough.
