"This tool allows an easy and comfortable way to download genuine Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 disk images (ISO) directly from Microsoft's servers, as well as Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016, and Office 2011 for Mac.*
"In the past Microsoft provided disk images for many of their products through their subcontractor "Digital River". These downloads were pulled in early 2014. Afterwards, Microsoft made a limited selection of downloads available on their TechBench site. Our tool accesses that TechBench site, and unlocks a large number of hidden download files on it."
*In my testing, only Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Insider Preview, Office 2013, Office 2016, and Office 2016 for Mac were available. However, there is this promising note on Jan's website:
"Removal of Windows 7 and Office in Version 5.00: These downloads have been blocked by Microsoft. We're working on an update."

Create an encrypted copy of foo, saving it as foo.gpg in the current directory:
$ gpg --symmetric --cipher-algo AES256 foo Enter passphrase: Repeat passphrase:
Create a decrypted copy of foo.gpg, saving it as foo in the current directory:
$ gpg --output foo --decrypt foo.gpg gpg: AES256 encrypted data Enter passphrase: gpg: encrypted with 1 passphrase
Create an encrypted copy of foo, saving it as foo.asc in the current directory in ASCII-armored format (suitable for pasting into email, etc):
$ gpg --symmetric --armor --cipher-algo AES256 foo Enter passphrase: Repeat passphrase:
Same as above, but send output to stdout instead of saving as foo.asc:
$ gpg --symmetric --armor --cipher-algo AES256 --output - foo Enter passphrase: Repeat passphrase: -----BEGIN PGP MESSAGE----- Version: GnuPG v1 jA0ECQMCpjdNrpTC689g0kYBkyRd+aGyQwt8sZu+OvEilyCnXd6RiYMXM75MlSb+ OCZnMy6hBhGxvJ7R23HCkNPg76X8dH4O8k5kYtuQwL9fZL8akSY0 =uWsn -----END PGP MESSAGE-----
Decrypt foo.asc, sending output to stdout:
$ gpg --decrypt foo.asc gpg: AES256 encrypted data Enter passphrase: gpg: encrypted with 1 passphrase hello, world!
By default, --symmetric uses AES128. Find supported ciphers with --version:
$ gpg --version
Cipher: IDEA, 3DES, CAST5, BLOWFISH, AES, AES192, AES256, TWOFISH,
CAMELLIA128, CAMELLIA192, CAMELLIA256
To disable gpg-agent, change use-agent to no-use-agent in ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf.
Why gpg rather than openssl enc?
More from The GNU Privacy Handbook: Documents may also be encrypted without using public-key cryptography. Instead, only a symmetric cipher is used to encrypt the document. The key used to drive the symmetric cipher is derived from a passphrase supplied when the document is encrypted, and for good security, it should not be the same passphrase that you use to protect your private key. Symmetric encryption is useful for securing documents when the passphrase does not need to be communicated to others. A document can be encrypted with a symmetric cipher by using the --symmetric option.

The Apple Keyboard (A1243) was introduced in 2007 and rechristened
Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad in 2009. Almost a decade later, it is still sold under the same name and model number.
However, there have been two different order numbers for this keyboard with separate system requirements:
The only cosmetic difference between the MB110LL/A and MB110LL/B is the icons on the F3 and F4 keys:

The dialog box warns:
All configured settings in the printer will be deleted and the original factory settings will be restored. This includes the administrator password for the embedded web server (EWS), Address Book entries for scan, and Phone Book entries for fax.
Also, Web Services account information will be removed, you will need to setup Web Services again on this printer. Until Web Services is set up again, HP Instant Ink will not work properly.

According to Three Types of Resets for your HP Officejet 6110,
Partially resetting it will return the printer to a responsive state without erasing the settings that you may have set on the printer.
The semi-full reset is applicable on issues where the printer has gone haywire and does not perform as expected. This process requires all settings and data saved in the printer to be erased.
[Full Reset] is rarely used. Usually the semi-full reset will do the job. . . . [T]here have been instances in the past where doing this reset procedure has cause permanent damage to the printer. Proceed at your own risk.
A post by Jay4096 states that none of these worked to reset the administrator password on a HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One:
However, he was able to reset the administrator password by resetting the network settings (Wi-Fi icon on LCD > settings icon >
Restore Network Settings). On the OfficeJet 5740, the prompt states:
Network settings (including proxy settings), and the administrator password for the embedded web server (EWS), will be reset.
