Been on the Internet since before there was an Internet. Remember UUCP, news feeds, and Gopher?

comment Why use wifi channels other than 1, 6 or 11?
And yet the throughput degrades very heavily when you have 6 stations all on the same channel with a couple in the distance. Moving off that channel does wonders for getting your channel throughput back.

@endolith - And in the time since this was posted, I now have 19 access points popping up in the listing. Mobile devices have converted neighborhoods into the density the paper was intended to alleviate. Not that relatively quiet anymore.

comment Force Windows to display in grayscale
Shades of gray might be a better option if you can do it, Black and White kind of kills a lot of stuff.

comment Will keeping all my fans at 100% speed harm my computer?
It's not a case of cleaning the case out, you just are drawing more dust laden air through the system. There are several cases out there with positive air pressure cooling that have air inlet filtration to prevent this. This is opposed to the negative pressure cooling currently used on most systems where you have the fans expelling the air instead of pulling it in and blowing it through the case. It's easier to filter with positive pressure systems.

Noisy, sucks more dirty air through the case over the computer's lifetime.

Zone Bit Recording threw out all that old cargo cult stuff about optimizing old MFM and RLL hard drives with interleaves, moving stuff radially for performance, et.al. We're not in Kansas anymore...

comment How do I install my SSL certificate?
Apache server admin question. Magento does not handle port 443 encryption and therefore has no setups other than those that tell it where the secure traffic is supposed to come from (BaseURLs, etc.).

Go into the virtual machine setup, click on Storage and then click on the attached Virtual Drive. It tells you the full path to the Virtual Disk.
