comment How did I manage to combine O and c to © in PuTTY?
Interesting. Is this actually documented anywhere? The only reference to a compose-like feature in PuTTY that I could find, was the option to enable alt gr as a DEC-like compose key.

comment Why are there 32-bit editions of Windows 8?
@specializt Mind slip. Looking back it turns out that my T60 was 1.83 GHz (T2400).

comment How can I quit the application opened from terminal in Mac OS X?
But you don't know the name of the process in the general case. open -a takes an .app path, and killall takes a UNIX executable name, in this case situated in the MacOSX subfolder. The name of the UNIX executable is defined in Info.plist and is not guaranteed to match the name of the .app. The easiest way to prove this is by renaming an application and trying to kill it using killall and the new name. There may also be oddball applications where the developer just chose a different name for the two things.

comment How to prevent Firefox from redirecting to OpenDNS's “website-unavailable.com”?
Why are you using OpenDNS at all? I stopped using OpenDNS for this exact reason, they're giving back bogus answers in various situations. I started using Google's public DNS servers, the famous 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 and never looked back.

comment Where does Internet Explorer store the last used upload directory?
I tried reopening IE after uploading a file, and open dialog starts browsing form the desktop. It may be that this information is actually only stored in RAM and not saved between sessions. If it was always "just there" you might want to look in the desktop folder. Also, it might help to add which version of Windows and IE was used. (I tested on Windows 7 using IE11.)

comment Virtual Box VT-x
Check around in different sections of the BIOS. On one computer I've, one of the settings was in the CPU features section and another one in the security section or some such.

comment What vulnerabilities have previous versions of windows (before xp) face after they went out of support?
You may have more luck asking for this in the information security SE but the question may be considered weak there. In short, Windows 9x is full of holes, don't believe anything else. But what's more relevant is that Windows 9x died off much more quickly than XP. 98 and XP are 4 years apart and while XP is still alive (>10% of the internet population according to some sources) Windows 98 was statistically insignificant already 5 years ago, and steadily declining long before that. It's not worth it for malware developers to target such a small population.

comment How to establish Peer to Peer communication without port forwarding?
Have you checked if UPnP works? UPnP is a protocol for port forwarding, and if you're lucky, it works even if the ISP doesn't tell you about it.
