comment Should you switch your Inkjet printer off or leave it on standby for ink cartridges to not dry?
@Andrew on amazon.de, a comment says "Der Drucker reinigt sich regelmäßig selber. ".. for the rest of the world: "The printer regularly cleans itself.", which I thought means it will waste some ink itself when it deems useful.

comment Does running the 'find' command fork a new process?
+1 for the only answer so far that does not make the mistake of ignoring aliases or functions.

comment How do I get a similar awesome bar (from Firefox) in Chrome?
That's annoying me to death. I really like firefox' address bar, and I really hate chrome ones :( You need to wait several seconds until the address dropdown box shows some history URLs.

comment Want to have two screens side-by-side
Hmm, 1280x1024 seems to be the most common for 19". What do you think about that?

comment Want to have two screens side-by-side
It seems that 19" screens aren't produced anymore, and that the 21" are replacing them. Yet I think many people still like them for use with computers. I also want to use 19". I will look around to see whether I find something good. I think just getting 1920x1080 for the sake of having Full-HD is kinda silly. How common is 1680x1050 though? I worry about not finding many wallpapers for it.

comment Memory eating programs lock up the system
However i wonder why my system gets stuck even with -m. I thought that if the physical memory is limited for process (its working set), then other applications won't be swapped out and are still responsive. But the system locks down anyway. Why is this? If nothing else helps, i will use virtual memory though, even though that includes many things that don't participate in bringing the machine down (i.e memory mapped files etc..)
