I am glad that you are so politically correct as not to exclude 50% of the population.
There is the pregnant man (transgendered technically).
I can't find it but there is also one case that a man (with the normal man equipment) that had a embryo implanted and was carried to term.
That way Windows update & such won't be bugging you that updates are available every time you boot.
You know you can turn off windows update? Same goes for most other software that will do its updates automatically. The rest either don't use them, complain to the developer to make it does that you can turn off auto updates, or just use the proxy or firewall to block the site that the software checks for updates with.
I agree. I would never accept the liability for data loss on any computer that a customer brought in for repair.
When I have to send a computer out for repair (normally just laptops) but it also includes towers under warranty I am not authorized to work on. I will, if it seems to be a hard drive failure, image the drive before shipping it, or if it is defidently not a hard drive issue remove the hard drive from the computer and either hold it in store or give it to the customer.
Yes, VirtualBox supports direct access. You have to edit config files to do it but it does work, but the VirtualBox team does not recommend it. They instead recommend that you use iSCSI, which VirtualBox also supports to connect to SANs directly. You also have to edit config files or use the CLI version of the VirtualBox machine setup (VBoxManage addiscsidisk), the option is not available in the GUI.
I highly doubt that ASUS hosts there website on 1and1.co.uk. Nor would they use 1and1 for their registrar. Especially when asus.com is registered with Network Solutions.
Not to mention that page seems to be the only page that the domain has on it and if try to snoop around it just redirects to uk.asus.com which is where asus.com sends you when you choose the UK for your country. If you check other countries on the asus.com landing page you will see that Asus puts there country sites on subdomains.
