comment Upgraded to Windows 10 and now I can't access TrueCrypt partition
Encryption keeps your data safe by rendering it unusable if tampering operations like this occur. It is the responsibility of the user to learn how to properly back up encrypted data, keys, partition headers, etc. before implementing anything that messes with partition tables or modifies the encryption software used to protect the drive/data. Data loss is the intended function of encryption and recovery afterwards is intended to be impossible. Welcome to plausible deniability.

comment Should I be concerned about hacking attempts via wget on a CentOS/LAMP-based web server?
iWeb hosting service out of Quebec, Canada. Whole netblock of addresses assigned to a datacenter to block if they decide to change it. It's like blocking an attack generated out of an Amazon Web Services EC2 VPS.

comment Stuck on preparing for installation windows 10
If that's truly "downloading" you have 2.7GB of installation software to move. Gonna take some time.

comment How to disable right click?
Back in the day when I first started working with web design, I was curious about how other people did stuff. The takeaway was that a) it was really easy to circumvent and b) it hid a lot of hideous code that wasn't worth reading. I quit bothering, not because it was difficult to bypass, but because the designers using it were too clever by half at hiding their incompetency.

comment Treat printer tray as separate printer
If you're using HP networked printers and the HP universal print driver, it's fairly easy to set up multiple printer instances and then set up each to have a preference that points at a certain tray.

comment Can I make Windows 10 upgrade download in parts?
We live in the time of the Cumulonimbus cloud, it's assumed everyone lives in the big city with high end broadband connections served by Akami networks. They even have 100MBit connections in Eastern "Rural" areas. Heh, restart a 2.7GB download from scratch? No problem!

comment Malware is causing Google Chrome to forget user data
Reinstalling your OS over the top of a malware infected partition is a waste of time. Wipe the disk and start from scratch. If you still have issues after doing that, you've got other more serious problems.

comment Is there a way to force Windows 10 to recognize more than 3.5 GB Ram on a 64 bit system?
We live in a 64 bit world now. Adopt it and you won't have future headaches on top of past headaches.

comment Is it okay to connect a smaller UPS to a bigger UPS?
No daisychaining of either UPS or surge protector strips. This is always found in the manufacturer's product manuals.

comment Does mixing memory with and without heat shields work?
And Heat Spreaders are really joyful when they pop loose causing the chips to not be able to shed heat through normal airflow. That wonderful eye candy is now the reason your computer is crashing. Pull the memory boards and inspect the heat spreaders every so often, if you see a gap where they're trying to separate from the chips, throw out the board unless you can finish out the delamination without destroying the chips and remove them to extend its life.

comment How to block users from downloading files
So, you block a few sites, then they proxy, now you have to figure out how to block proxies, the list goes on. A capable router might have bandwidth throttling or network access reporting per IP/MAC. Find the offender and have them pay for the downloads, time for kids to start earning their access so they're ready for the real world.
