Do you have a Samsung SSD? Which model and what precisely is it connected to?

comment How to prevent recipients from dishonestly marking mail as spam?
If you have an application where this is likely to happen and reasonably foreseeable, email is not the right tool. You can only email people things that you are reasonably certain they will want to receive -- what they've agreed to doesn't matter because they're not the ones delivering the email. You are relying on other people's good graces and cooperative spirit to do that, and they will (for good reasons) want no part of your scheme.

Can you tell us exactly what extender you're using?

Just ask the administrator of the WiFi network to whitelist the router.

comment What kind of RAM to choose for data analysis?
There is almost never a tradeoff between latency and frequency. The RAM with the highest frequency almost always has the lowest latency.

@MatthewMorgan The port forwarding has to be done on the device that's your gateway to the Internet.

comment Netgear nighthawk
@MatthewMorgan Connect the two routers LAN-to-LAN, disable the Nighthawk's DHCP server, and give the Nighthawk a LAN IP address inside the range the other router serves.

comment Netgear nighthawk
@MatthewMorgan That was (probably) a mistake, since the Nighthawk is only connected to your LAN. The Internet (or WAN) port should have been left disconnected since the Nighthawk isn't your gateway to the Internet.

You still haven't explained how the NIghthawk is connected. Is its WAN port connected to anything? If so, what? (And why?!)

@MatthewMorgan The cord has to be connected to either a WAN port or a LAN port, doesn't it?

How is the Nighthawk connected? LAN-to-LAN or WAN-to-LAN?

comment Netgear nighthawk
You can connect the Nighthawk LAN-to-LAN to form a single LAN. You need to disable the Nighthawk's DHCP server and set its LAN IP address.

comment Netgear nighthawk
Routers, by default, don't let anyone outside the LAN access anything inside the LAN. So if you have two LANs, you won't be able to access one from the other. That's why you can't reach both the Telus and the Nightgear at the same time. Maybe you have two LANs for a good reason, but it's also possible that was just a bad setup decision.

comment I recently upgraded to 16GB, now my computer is slower. What can I do?
Most likely, you didn't remount the heat sink correctly.

comment Netgear nighthawk
t really comes down to whether you want two separate LANs or not. If you have two separate LANs, you won't be able to access one LAN from the other.

comment noatime is set in OS X but the system continues updating the last access time
What geeth said is correct. Setting the noatime flag will reduce the number of writes.

The words "it is clear" are not a magic wand that lets you state controversial things without providing evidence. Water can kill you, does that mean it's never innocuous? Does that mean more of it is always worse than less?

comment Windows slow localhost connection (20 MB/s)
What CPU do you have? 40MB/s encryption/decryption speed is pretty reasonable. (You have to double it because you have to both encrypt and decrypt every byte.)
