comment How to use two audio devices simultaneously with Windows 7?
@Ajedi32: Yes, you may be right. Some people are reporting that Stereo Mix is missing for them, even after following steps to show disabled devices. Honestly, that's a surprise for me, because I'm using a built-in Realtek sound card, which has this feature. My mobo is from Asus. The good side is that it's a free hack though.

Incorrect. It's possible to use Stereo mix to play from two different pieces of hardware at the same time. superuser.com/a/997538/101043

comment “This app can't run on your PC” is displayed when running a program
My issue too. Try downloading with Internet Explorer. It allows you to resume download, whereas Firefox silently dropped the ball.

@TombMedia: NVIDIA is a must have. Or built-in. :) I had 3 ATI video cards, they all shared same set of (random) problems.

comment Is there still a reason to choose a 10,000 RPM hard drive over an SSD?
@ChrisPratt: Sorry, my maths was off, that makes it 15 times. This also coincides with another statistics I've read previously, 3% failure rate for some SSDs, 0.3% for others.

comment Is there still a reason to choose a 10,000 RPM hard drive over an SSD?
@ChrisPratt: Correct. You can check MTBF, for example - most SSDs have 2M hours, most consumer HDDs had 700K last time I checked. Also a quick google search found this - SSD Annual Failure Rates Around 1.5%, HDDs About 5%. Also note that not SSDs are created the same, I don't want to advertise, but some are 10x more reliable by return statistics. There is no significant lifespan difference for HDDs between brands, from what I know. So that's 30 times reliability difference SSDs vs HDDs.

@ChrisPratt: Unless a company provides data conversion services, i.e. need to convert/write 100GB of data per hour, backup services or similar, I don't see why SSDs won't work.

@ChrisPratt: You are missing the point that consumer grade HDDs are much-much worse than consumer grade SSDs. I.e. even a small shop cannot afford to have server racks fitted with consumer HDDs, they are just not meant to handle 24/7 loads. SSDs on the other hand are fine with that, they don't produce as much heat and most operations are reads, so it does not wear them out at all. This is especially true for databases. HDDs wear is mechanical wear, so that's the difference.
