comment How can I detect (and correct) silent data corruption?
To verify files you will basically need a way to hash them (MD5 or SHA1 should do). Create/update a hash whenever you save the file and periodically recheck them. This wouldn't be too hard to script, at least for a small number of files.

comment Can I install 64 bit Windows 7 or 8on system with 3gb ram?
The 64-bit performance depends on what applications you run. For office/internet work there isn't much difference, but for audio/video, applications that do heavy mathematical processing, etc... the performance can be better.

Hmm... You have a point there. This looks like a deeper hardware problem.

comment What causes Windows 8 Consumer Preview to lock-up / freeze / hang in Oracle VM VirtualBox?
If you install the tools and suffer from slowness, try assigning more cores for the VM. I had the same problem.

comment Making music on a Mac
What do you know about music writing? How do you plan to create this music: drum machine, synth, writing a score etc... What you have in mind so far will determine which tools to look for.

comment Where is ORACLE_HOME set in AIX?
There's no such thing as "compiling" .cshrc. source only reads and executes that file.

Are you running your 3D apps with optirun? The ubuntu-x-swat repo shouldn't be needed for 12.04.

comment 13" MacBook Pro gets daily kernel panics
Repetitive kernel panics even after reinstalls (which rule out a software problem)... this points a lot towards a hardware problem.
