I am a web developer from southern New Hampshire. I am pretty much self taught, having learned mostly by reading and experimenting. I am proficient in HTML, XHTML, PHP, CSS, and JavaScript, with experience in jQuery. Most of my answers are in the JavaScript tag, though occasionally you'll see me in PHP or jQuery.

comment How can I install CentOS without a keyboard, mouse, or monitor?
Even with keyboard and mouse, you'll still need a monitor, which it doesn't seem the OP has. And those are more expensive. I guess it would have to be modified media with VNC.

comment Installing Ubuntu alongside complicated Windows 8 setup
Any recommendations as to where to put this partition? Does it need to be at the beginning of the drive?

comment Wireless card on HP laptop not working
It's definitely the connection between the router and the laptop. The bars indicating connection strength disappear for a second, replaced with by the empty bars with a plus sign indicating connections available, then the signal strength reappears as the connection picks up again. Oddly, the connection only drops for a second or so before picking back up.

Not really... I tried my main home network and it didn't work, as well as a neighbor's that I have access to, and neither worked. However, the neighbor's could just have been a range problem.

The machines you mention with the Ralink cards, I take it their wireless works fine?

But it's a really awesome laptop - I like it a lot. It took me a long time to find, and I don't want to go searching again. I agree with what you're saying, but if there's any other option, I'd like to look in to it first.

I wouldn't think using the alternate wireless card would void the warranty. It's clearly user-serviceable under the main panel, along with the HDD and RAM. Also, I bought the first unit online, then got the same model through replacement in-store

comment Harddrive disconnects when I try to write on it
I would try disconnecting and then reconnecting it to the motherboard - it could just be a loose connection.

thanks for your response, but I believe the problem was that my memory was going a bit wonky and just needed to be reseated (see my answer)

comment Disable Skype Windows 7 integration
That's kind of what I meant when I said I didn't know how to phrase the query - I figured "integration" wasn't quite the right word. I did say "integrates with the Windows 7 taskbar", not just "integrates with Windows 7".

comment List members of a Windows group using command line
I guess I pretty much want enabled standard users. In the scenario I need this for, the users are very unlikely to have created a bunch of accounts with weird privileges
