comment Onboard RAID vs Software RAID
@psusi: Huh. I'll admit to never having tried it until recently, but, in Windows 7 at least, it's pretty nice. softwaresecretweapons.com/jspwiki/… I actually like Windows 7 pretty well. It's a much more serious effort than Windows has put forth in the past.

comment Onboard RAID vs Software RAID
@psusi: The only thing I don't like about the windows software raid is that it doesn't mirror the boot sector, so if you lose the "main" drive, there is more maintenance than there would be for a hardware or a fake raid. I've never had trouble using software raids with linux, but I haven't really plumbed the depths of that since I usually have access to hardware raids.

comment Undo an “rm -rf ~” command?
You can recover text files using this method without a lot of difficulty (as long as you have a rough idea of whats in them), but binary files are so difficult as to be basically impossible.

comment How can I fix/repair a corrupted PDF file?
Ghostscript is okay, but it's certainly not better than Acrobat. It's completely bare bones.

Opensource PDF tools tend to be pretty crappy, I'm afraid. What are you using?

comment IP address loads faster than domain name
+1: If you type in the domain name, the users DNS will go through the process of looking up the IP address, a step which obviously doesn't occur with a plain IP address.
