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.

comment How can I tell if the power pin(?) inside my laptop has been pushed in?
I'll go so far as to say it sounds likely, but a picture would help immensely.

comment scp using a lots of memory
@matt: I've never tried it, so I'll bow to your experience. Still, it seems like using any logic to determine that it was a local transfer would add some overhead.

comment Does the order in the slots of memory modules matter/ MemTest
Well, if RAM will work in slot A,C, and D but not slot B, then slot B is bad. If you have a short or something on the board, it can trash RAM and slot both. If slot B is dead, then yes, you have a motherboard problem.

comment SSH Connection Limitations
@user: So you're looking at outbound connections, from one machine to 99 other machines, or are we talking 100 machines all constantly connected to 99 other machines all hammering each other with real-time data? You'll probably have a lot more success having the machines all aggregate the data in local groups, rather than every machine getting a complete copy of the data.

comment SSH Connection Limitations
@user: If you're going to be writing from 100 connections at the same time, you're going to run into problems very quickly...Very likely you'll saturate your bandwidth before anything else has a chance to break. What kind of data, and does it have to be real-time?
