comment What should I do as Subversion refuses to commit after I moved some files
This is correct -- move the files back to their original locations and use svn move to move them to the desired new locations.

I use Synergy every day, to use the mouse and keyboard from my iMac to control my laptop. But it may not be what the OP wants in this situation...

comment Is RAID 0 as risky as people say it is?
@Brian Knoblauch: I completely don't understand your point: How can you not worry about RAID0 just because if one drive fails, the others soon will? With RAID1, RAID5, or RAID10, if one drive fails, you don't lose data. With RAID0, you lose all your data. Doesn't matter if the other drives are about to go... I mean obviously it matters in so far as planning on replacing the others soon... but with RAID0, you lose everything. The other drives going soon has no effect on that.

comment Is RAID 0 as risky as people say it is?
@Evan Anderson: While what you're saying is very true it's a bit of a different topic. @Juliano's point was, RAID doesn't equal backup. And of course he's right. My point was, RAID0 is more likely to fail than no RAID at all, so anything on RAID0 should be considered very vulnerable.

The same copy ran fine on other computers. The newest version of memtest didn't crash and indeed, reported bad RAM.

comment Memtest86+ crashing
The older memtest86+ crashed with both old and new RAM. The newest memtest+ (version 4) reports bad RAM in test 5. So it looks like that was the cause. Thanks!
