I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

@Pacerier: Tricky question; as with anything, I think the answer to that is "depends on the software you run". As there might be software using the library API functions.

@Pacerier: Go to Windows Explorer. Make sure you are in "Libraries", you can enter this in the address bar without quotes. Then right click in the blank; in the menu that appears, click "New", then "Library".

Downvoted because modern hardware does not use classful addressing anymore.

comment Why local addresses usually start with 192.168?
@kinokijuf: Funny, because this answer has no reference of hardware or classful addresing. It instead has a reference of modern IANA reservations.

It's also not a reason to not recommend it. It's up to the reader to decide.

comment How to diagnose slow booting or logon in Windows?
@Dims: Yes, some years ago Soluto has migrated to the web as you can see on that page; harrymc's screenshot might be a bit outdated and still picture the old application, but their boot-analysis functionality still exists as documented in that link. The front page just has no hyperlink to it.
