I had a hard drive crash in my notebook, I had the files backed up however, my restore disk seems to be corrupt. What is the best way I can get windows on my hard disk, I currently have to run Ubuntu in order to use my notebook. My notebook is an older model Gateway, Model MD2614u. It came with Windows Vista x64 but I had got a free Windows 7 32 bit disc and was running it on the old hard drive. I don't care for Ubuntu, its not compatible with the school system I use. I just need an good way to get Windows back on my computer and I don't want to spend more than $15, Id rather do it free. It runs on an AMD Turion processor.

So I've made the decision to starting running DD-WRT on my routers, and wow, won't be going back to stock firmware anytime soon, so much options, and customizing.

However, and I assume DD-WRT could handle this somewhere, even though I love the bandwidth monitor, it would be great to be able to break up the monitoring between devices...
Would be interesting to see how much each device uses in a set period, for those on poor data caps, whom are running over their quotas. (not as its a problem for me, but I know people whom do have the problem and would love some sort of monitor which would give a device breakdown of bandwidth usage)

What is out there which would provide something like such, running in software?

I wished the routers I currently own supported wwdrt. I'd love to try the firmware too but not so much to spend money on a compatible router. Maybe when I win the lotto.

On the iPhone WhatsApp there is an item under Settings/Account "change number" that supports migration. There is a similar facility on WindowsPhone & presumably also for Android.

Not really any way to get a lost email password unless you've got root access and the email app stores the password unencrypted. If you forgot the password, the email service's website should have a "forgot password" link.
A lot of people (myself included) are now using password managers to securely store and remember their passwords. You can give it a master password which it will use to encrypt/decrypt you other passwords.

Fr. Robert, I have to take issue with some of the things you said on the recent KH concerning RC drive components, in particular, the motors. The 'third' wire on a brushless motor is not a sense line, but rather is connected directly to coils. The motor is actually a 3-phase AC motor, with all leads driven. The phase rotation controls the direction and the frequency of the AC drive controls the speed. The ESC is actually a 3-phase signal generator where the radio is controlling the frequency of the drive applied.

Best, Roger

If you use android 4.4 you can use adb to record your screen.

Hey guys is there such a thing as power supply monitor software? I ask this because I think the added memory maybe affect my power supply  because in the middle of me doing a show or doing some editing work it shuts off on me. This never happen before I added the extra memory. 

I removed it and it seems to me working fine now but I sill wanted to know if there was a way to see how much power is been used up with my current config.

It's me again with another question from this past Thursdays show.

The show talked about port forwarding as a way to connect multiple devices to the outside world. I am using IPFire as my firewall (which is a forlk of IPCop) on an old machine I have, and have some NICs installed in the extra slots. My plan was to section off some ports on my 16 port switch and run the DMZ to that; then, use the DNS server in IPFire to direct traffic to the correct host. I all ready have a domain and I have IPFire set up with DynDNS. Is this a viable solution or should I just stick to port forwarding? I enjoy tinkering So I am not scared of completely messing up and having to start again as long as it is worth the pain.

Here is a link to some more info on IPFire for anyone who is interested.

Fr. Robert and Know Hows its me again. I have a costume build desktop I put together back in 2007-2008. When I had issues I could fix it with no problem, just a week again I was listening to Iheart radio and all the sudden I got the blue screen of dead with something saying shutting down. I replaced the battery in the motherboard to see if it was it, but it wasn't I have tried everything in book, and it wont even let me format the HD and even hitting F8 sometimes lets me in and I have Ubuntu installed as a duel boot that works but wont upgrade to the newer version. what could it be? I'm stumped on this one.

So I'm listening to the All About Android episode with Padre right now and I think the next project should obviously be How To Securely Wipe My Phone.

To Say that all web  info can go by by is A bad idea - when you can make every web page you visit as A PDF file - by date & time,  if  you wanted to, I am sure their is A plug in for that - & your isp knows what you did

Can we please get a RAID primer sometime?  I'm seeing lots of parity RAID being recommended with HDD, and I cringe every time.

The point is that you WILL run out of that RAM space, and then you'll wonder why everything suddenly seems to just stop.

I have a question, I am not sure if this has been answered yet. I am the go-to guy for my family when it comes to computers or tech. Recently, I have to decided to move to a new area for work. However, they still want me to work on their computers and routers. So my question is what is the best and cheapest remote desktop application that I can load onto their and my computer to allow me to work on their computers should I need to help them or troubleshoot?
