comment How do I determine if an SSD fits into my tablet/notebook?
actually, @BonGart not true. i have an X220, and a 9mm drive will fit just fine - however, you will not be using the "drive sled" that the 7mm drives fit into. remove your existing drive, and just stick the SSD in. it will be snug, but it wont require force, and will be snug enough that movement and vibration are not a big deal. (lenovo X220 w/ OCZ vertex3 SSD here)

comment unable to switch TTY in arch linux
actrually, ive figured it out -- as dumb as it sounds, i was using R_alt to switch TTYs, which on my thinkpad, correspond to TTY13-24 (which arent configured) simply by using L_alt, everything works as expected.

comment Different versions of 2.5" drives? Unscrewing Intel 320 for slimmer drive to fit newer thinkpads?
if you pop the keyboard off (undo the screws on the bottom of the laptop) you can easily just push on the SSD from the back and it slides out. i wouldnt worry about the SSD bouncing around too much, as it seems to be a snug enough fit that it will actually prevent lateral motion. been running my X220 in this way for the last 5 months, and i havent had a single issue.

i actually thought about that, and added it to the .i3/config file, and had it run at login.

ah, that works just fine actually. i tried doing some administrative stuff while that command was running, and was prompted as expected. adding /usr/lib/policykit-1-gnome/polkit-gnome-authentication-agent-1 to my xinitrc solved the problem permanently :) thank you!

that much makes sense, but i3wm has a nice launcher (mod+d) that i use to fire up software, and afaik, i cant modify it to call things in such a way.
