The answers for both questions linked by @MrHen suggest that there needs to be a dash before based

I may be mistaken here, but would you not say hardware-based tool or counter-based tool? Besides, in the article you and the OP provided hardware counter does not have a dash.

@Julian could you help by explaining exactly what a hardware-counter (-) based tool is?

comment Standard format for phone numbers?
@MT_Head I work for a company that does business cards and letterheads (in the US). The standard we see most often is 000.000.0000 (there's no need for the 1 at the beginning, as any person dialing would know whether or not they should use it). Feel free to add this to your answer.

comment Is it appropriate to use 'eagerly' while ending a formal e-mail
Do you really eagerly await a response to every formal email you send? I know I sure don't.

comment Why does “is” replace “has”?
I must strongly disagree, since in AmE, we often do what @Peter Shor mentioned about dropping the h from has. When we do this, song has is clearly not contracted to song's, as we do pronounce the second syllable. The simple dropping of the h is far more likely to cause @Raj's confusion, since he probably heard song 'as (which could be easily mistaken for with song is), not song's.

@Peter & @tenfour: I think you guys actually have the right answer. One of you may want to post it as such. I often say such things as this song 'əs been written... meaning has, not is.

comment What's the reason for the difference in pronunciation between “dispatch” and “dispatcher”?
@Thomson: yes, I looked in a few common online dictionaries and found no discrepancy in pronunciation.
