comment Can I build my own Extended Validation SSL certificate?
I do not agree that it is pointless. For example, in an organization it would be nice to put it on every browser to have all internal sites recognized.

comment KVM Guest installed from console. But how to get to the guest's console?
I removed --network bridge:br0, changed cdromto location, and extra-args to --extra-args='console=tty0 console=ttyS0,115200n8 serial' and it worked!

comment Do raid controllers syncronize HDD platter rotation?
Do you mean that an ordinary mechanical drive doesn't need to control the spindle speed?!? It does. In fact, the drive must have all the electronics to detect the speed and correct it, or the data would not be readable. It is actually not that much that is missing from getting all the drives synchronized: They need a common clock to synchronize to.

comment Restore old Belkin UPS?
@Jonathan: I have had the same problem. For me it worked when I replaced the batteries but that was with a UPS from APC. For me it was much cheaper to replace the batteries than to buy a new one. It is probably easier to buy a new one, that you know will work, but it will cost you 4-8 times more.

comment Restore old Belkin UPS?
All the small UPS's (3 different brands) I have opened have used the same type of battery and all but one was very easy to replace the battery on. The cost for the batteries was IIRC less than 25% of a new UPS. I did it for my personal use when my time didn't cost anything. But for work I usually buy a new UPS because I know it will work, and I also get some warranty.

comment Restore old Belkin UPS?
Some of the UPS's I have encountered didn't show any life when the batteries was completely dead, but worked when I replaced the batteries.
