comment 7-Zip compression on multi-core computers
@Edward: can't confirm your numbers / experience: on my i5 7z-9.22beta utilizes between 75% and 95% cpu and spawns between 8 and 32 threads to archive a ~240mb folder full of mp3s. .bz2.7z took ages, .lzma2.7z was pretty fast (all ultra-settings) and just a little bit bigger than .bz2.7z.

comment Do hard drives really have open cases now?
@BrockAdams: evidence: look at how they are actually assembled in the factory: youtube.com/watch?v=L4qBl8x3tC0 ... they are working in dust-free rooms, with LOTS of protection so that anything their body emits wont hit the disks.

comment Using webfonts with sublime text 3
that plugin does not what you think it does: it fetches to be used as part of a website / css; it also adds the correct references to that font via <link rel...> etc. it does not make these fonts available in sublime as fonts for the look of the editor.

comment Using webfonts with sublime text 3
i never claimed that you asked for system-wide. i just said: it's already hard to find a solution for system-wide-without-admin-rights. you are looking for something harder (coz you want to limit what sublime3 sees).

comment Using webfonts with sublime text 3
you realize that there was not really a way to make this work "system-wide" for a single user? you realize the chance to make this work for a single user PLUS limit the access to the font to a single program?

"without admin previleges on Windows" <-> "Using custom fonts without administrator rights" ... you see the similarity here?

comment Multiple mac address connections from the same device
@user3767013: which is irrelevant. 2 devices, 2 mac addresses, 2 ip addresses. the problem pops up when you have the same ip address bound to different mac-addresses or different nic's with the same mac-address. routers/switchers will have a hard time to deliver the packets.

comment Can Wireless Sniffers capture and read your data with and without being connected to the WLAN?
@Netasd: "wifi" operates like "radio": the signal is broadcasted and EVERYONE with an antenna strong enough to pick up that signal is able to ... well ... pick up that signal. and store it away. you do not have to communicate back to the radio station in order to receive the signal. this is the correct answer.

Check this because your .ssh/* folder on that encrypted home-folder will be only visible once it is .. well .. decrypted :)
