This doesn't appear to be related to security at all.

comment How do I block a blogspot site using hosts file?
Your browser probably has its own DNS cache, which is skipping the OS-level resolver. Try Ctrl+F5 to force refresh, or restart your system.

comment Memtest86+ freezes with 16GB RAM upgrade
Unfortunately I don't have another system that'll take standard non-ECC DDR3. My other box is an older DDR2 board, and my servers all require ECC DIMMs. If I had another set of 4x4GB DDR3 DIMMs that worked in this system, I wouldn't be having this problem! :P

comment Can I specify PBKDF2 rounds to use with LUKS/dm-crypt?
I'm not trying to say that it's necessary, I'm saying that they chose it for their security model and had some reasons which they felt were solid. I don't see anything insecure about their model, so I won't say it's wrong. It may not offer much but it does err on the side of caution.

@Gilles I think the issue is that by changing only the header, you lose some plausible deniability about the data. I remember that TrueCrypt had a section on changing the password of an existing volume and the potential security issues.

comment Why do we need multiple levels of cache memory?
@Thor This is one of those weird bits of knowledge that I've picked up over years of random reading and playing with microprocessors, but the wiki article is pretty comprehensive, especially the part about multi-level cache architectures.
