    Help! Find me a laptop!

    No new laptops, save chromebooks, will be under $400. If you want something that cheap, get a used laptop. Thinkpads and Macbooks age well; consider getting something like a t420 or a used air.

    My dream job is to be a software engineer at a technology startup. Good pay, awesome people, flexible hours, and interesting work.

    Any Linux Lovers here?

    Ran Ubuntu for four years, switched to Debian about three years ago now. It's been an absolute blast, Debian is really a nice distro. I especially like the sheer number of packages that are in the main repos, instead of in some shady launchpad project.

    Wifi Networking question

    That's WPS, which is something different. The OP tried resetting the router, and if he couldn't connect after that, then WPS wouldn't have been of much help.

    Wifi Networking question

    That is indeed troubling. If no devices can connect, however, it probably means the router itself is bad.

    Wifi Networking question

    Your best bet is to reset the router using the small reset button usually located on the back or bottom of the router. There are a lot of different things that need to happen correctly to be able to access the internet over WiFi, so there are a lot of different things that could have screwed...

    Format has spoiled my hardrive

    It's very unusual for formatting utilities to write to every byte on the disk, so in principle if you just clobber your filesystem all the files are still there, just not mapped in any data structure.
