Which has nothing at all to do with wear and tear over the lifetime of a manufactured object.

comment Do Servers get bad sectors like computer HD?
Murphy's law started out as an "If something is created in a way such that it can be connected up wrong, it will be connected up wrong." Sensors on a suit that was to be worn while the wearer was subjected to high G forces on a rocket sled. The sled run produced no results. The connectors for the sensors were not polarized. ALL the sensors were hooked up backwards. We had a similar situation on the old IBM compatible AT style motherboards, the connector was two identical six pin connectors with all 4 black ground wires in the middle. If the position was switched, the board smoked.

comment What is the difference between these 2 twisted pairs?
You have to watch out on cable testers, the cheap ones will tell you that all 4 pairs are hooked up correctly, but will not detect if one of the pairs is in the proper position but with the pair reversed on one end (solid/striped connected backwards).

comment How to renew Google Chrome certificate (NET::ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID)?
So, if you go into the Windows certificate store and remove AVG's Man in the Middle certificate for each website you have issues with so it recreates them, you can then reenable HTTPS packet scanning?

Acid? Have buddies that are into cruel practical jokes? No liquids in a computer besides small quantities of capacitor electrolyte or the lithium battery.

comment Android - recover encrypted images
Then you will have to brute force it, ie try all number combinations that it might have been. They mention PIN which most people use only 4 numbers for. AES is built secure and will only deencrypt when you enter the right pass phrase.

comment Android - recover encrypted images
Any proper use of encryption will not store the key in a config file. You will need to use the original app as it most likely uses a proprietary structure to encrypt the image file. The only option you have at this point is to try to remember the password used as well designed AES encryption renders the original contents unrecoverable by design unless the exact password is used. Use encryption to protect yourself but expect total data loss unless you have a proper password management system in place to prevent losing/forgetting the password/encryption key.
