comment What is a safe ping frequency without it being considered a DDoS attack?
"It is most successful if the attacker has more bandwidth than the victim" - this is an important point. Unless you are pinging a very small website, and have very good internet service, you simply couldn't generate a flood of great enough magnitude. Hence the "distributed" part, by taking advantage of multiple independent connections a DDoS attack doesn't need any one connection that can overpower the server - it's all about combined strength.

comment Using Word, how can I create a document that looks like this?
This is rather difficult to follow. Could you just number the circles and list the steps as text below?

comment Reload Javascript/CSS Resources Without reloading HTML
Are you looking for a way to do this within the page itself? Or a way to get your browser to do this? If the first, this should be over on SO - if not, you might want to adjust your tags a bit.

comment Is it safe to use a dummy hdmi plug?
You should be able to do this without any hardware at all. On Windows, in the Screen Resolution control panel: click detect, for display select "available display on. . .", and for multiple displays select "try to connect anyway on: VGA".

Please add more information, and adjust your title. It's not clear what your problem is or what you want to accomplish.

Is this computer managed by an IT department? Or your own personal machine?

More information is needed. Have you made any changes to the system recently? Updates, new software, settings?

comment How to get list of Windows's shared folders on Ubuntu
The question is about Windows and Ubuntu. . . How is a command on Mac useful in this situation?

comment Setup Windows 8.1 and Install Driver without User Interaction
There are micro USB keyboards, as well as adaptors. Short of that, did you contact ASUS for support? 8.1 should have at least a generic driver to allow you to complete installation. Not to mention that the OEM should have included it. Since this is a tablet I am assuming you used the "refresh my PC" feature, not a clean 8.1 disk?

comment Change Chrome's font for a specific website?
Using the dev tools you can do this, temporarily, with completely stock Chrome. But that change is reset on every page load. For something permanent the above solution is good. You can take it even deeper with another extension called Stylish - though that requires knowledge of CSS.

comment How does Netflix know my password?
This argument is non-constructive. The question was not about hashing. If you want to improve the answer, do so - arguing about whether or not the example is appropriate is pointless. I would recommend researching what Netflix is using (if it's publicly known) first though, since that would be most relevant to the actual question.

comment How to have num lock enabled by default on log on screen?
The instructions quoted from Microsoft do not work in Windows 8. There is no "console menu", the file menu contains "Add/Remove Snap-in" however the dialogue doesn't appear to contain the options that the instructions require. There is a list of items to add, including some referring to the group policy. However none of them seem to do the needed task. Furthermore in some cases it says "To manage group policy you must be logged on to the computer with a domain user account".

comment Video and audio in all applications unable to play past first frame/second
I have sent it in for warranty repair. No idea yet what the problem is, but I'm sure they will either find it or replace it.

I don't know how I would use those monitoring tools to identify a problem.

Already checked for firewall/bandwidth/plug-in/extension issues - no change.

comment Video and audio in all applications unable to play past first frame/second
Tried installing codecs as recommended, no improvement. MPC stops responding when I try to open a video in it. VLC shows the first frame, as usual.
