comment Lag in highlighting or scrolling on Chrome
CPU usage is low, no spikes. Antivirus is always running, but not doing any scanning or consuming excessive resources. I tried turning off the predictive network actions. Haven't noticed a difference.

I've just confirmed this happens on IE as well. Sorry, guess it's not a Chrome specific problem for me.

It can happen with only 1 tab open. I have plenty of ram.

comment How do I retain my shells and SSH connections on my laptop after I leave work?
will these work if I need to login to a VPN? As in after I log in, will mosh/screen/tmux allow me to be up and running again?

comment cp -H vs cp -L (What is a “command-line” symbolic link?)
Thanks. That explains it really well. The confusing part was about "command-line" symbolic links. I guess that means that if I did cp -HR folder mysymlink destinationFolder, then mysymlink would be followed, but not the symbolic links within destination folder. Basically, anything that appeared on the command-line after cp -H or cp -HR gets followed once (because they appear on the command-line), but any other linking after that does not.

Yup, that's why I bolded command-line. A Google search didn't reveal anything about that type of symlink.

comment installing Lenovo System Update: error code 1316: network error acessing System Update.msi
Oh, and after removing the old version, I was able to install the new system update version 5.

comment installing Lenovo System Update: error code 1316: network error acessing System Update.msi
While I'm sure this would have worked, I wasn't able to find the same version (3.x) on lenovo's website. Without doing any further searching, I was fortunately able to remove the old system update through CCleaner. It has an uninstall software feature and the old system update showed up there. Thanks anyways.

thanks Scott. What if file 2 has characters after each of those symbols? I want to do the same but keep the trailing characters.

comment How can I build an old application for 64bit?
Just curious, how were you able to find this build? Were you able to search from google or did you correctly guess that Gentoo may have a build? I have other applications I need to update to 64bit and was wondering if I'd be able to replicate your search and find successful releases across any linux flavor.

comment How can I build an old application for 64bit?
To give the reason behind my question, I wanted to know if I can go to any ebuild build map for any linux flavor and know that if someone built it before, that means it is "stable". I noticed the KEYWORDS= section, just not sure why an example of an ebuild script means it is "stable" and what "stable" means.

comment How can I build an old application for 64bit?
Thanks for your response. I was able to complete the build for x86_64. I was wondering how were able to conclude from this script that the postgresql 7.4.6 was considered stable on all those architectures? Does "stable" mean they were able to build for those architectures without errors, or does it mean they actually tested out postgresql on each architecture and ensured it could run?

comment how can I set up SSH on home network from Windows 7 to Linux?
Thanks, this worked well. I'm able to ssh from an external network now. Hamachi is convenient. I like not having to set up port forwarding and a dynamic DNS service.
