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

comment Beep in headphone when usb-mouse is plugged in or moved
This also can be a symptom of having a broken wire in the mouse cable. The disconnect/reconnect beep is caused as the mouse electronics drop offline and get redetected.

comment Implications of using 192.168.1.255 for second access point
Hmm, a router that doesn't check the Net Mask when you set the device IP address and limit the assigned address to valid numbers. Might want to tell us the brand and model number so we can avoid it like the plague. Unless you're using some oddball CIDR Mask on the internal addressing.

RAM is fast memory storage, disk access is slow, non-volatile memory storage and the CPU cache is there for other reasons.

comment Upgrading from Windows CE 6.0 to Windows 7?
First you'd need to know if device drivers exist for the "Wireless Book" device package. The usual answer is "You don't" as these items usually weren't even as powerful as the current Android tablets out there and like Android tablets don't provide an OS hardware/BIOS environment in which full a full Windows OS install will run.

Virtual Machine = Virtual Hardware. Host graphics card doesn't matter, virtual graphics card does.

comment My laptop and my phone top out at 40 Mbps on my home WiFi
Sounds like phone and laptop can only do 802.11g which is 50Mbps. With encryption overhead and all things considered, you're doing about right.
