comment Why is the “top” command showing a CPU usage of 799%?
Same happens on Raspberry Pi 2 with the new Quad Core ARM. htop not installed by default with Raspbian but it looks nicer than top.

comment Normal Command Prompt / Console in Visual Studio
Sweet! Wow.. I saw Power Shell written there before... but I didn't realise it was a global shell. I thought it was just for NuGet specific context. It works EXACTLY as I wanted. Thank you so much. Hidden in plain sight :)

comment Why does emptying disk space speed up computers?
Rotational velocity is no longer that important because density per inch has increased incredibly. Because of increased density, sectors are not evenly created on the platters any more because the heads cannot possibly write to sectors further out on the platter than it would near the centre. This is a particular problem with the new shingle technology (SMR) The problem we are facing now is that heads are the bottleneck, on SMR 1 sector write actually needs to do allot more read and writes and on the outer tracks is becoming impracticable. It even starts to struggle with reads.

comment Routing network traffic on Windows Vista
If I were to "disable" the WiFi bit will internet traffic then revert to the LAN side? I am trying to avoid Internet via LAN as it has silly filters on it but I don't want to download large files over 4G, so I will just enable and disable the 4G as I need it.
