If I post something erroneous please tell me so I can fix it and learn from the error.

I'm currently developing a voxel game called Mosstest in Java as a learning exercise.

I can be contacted by email at obsessivefoss@gmail.com, if one is interested in my work. Please do not email asking for help.

comment What would be the disadvantages of using a 4 stranded ethernet cable?
Any reason why IPv6 would fail? The cables themselves have no business dealing with OSI layer 2 and above; they only operate at 1. In fact, IPv6 should be agnostic of which ethernet technology is used (possibly even any switched-bus/bus should work)

comment Why is Process Explorer reporting activity in non-existent dedicated GPU memory?
This is a lower-end machine, definitely no extra GPUs there. Device Manager confirms this. The miners are probably just reporting the CPUs as GPus where the Winterpark is a real GPU.

comment Why is Process Explorer reporting activity in non-existent dedicated GPU memory?
@nodakai Not a dupe in my opinion, I'm aware of what Dedicated GPU memory is. The problem is that I'm sure I have none as the spec sheet specifies I have none, and dedicated memory is, by convention, not put into cheaper laptop integrated GPUs. That is why I am asking this question.

@Vijay So the answer is you can't with 100% certainty, without hardware write protection. Say that if asked again.

@DevSolar It's an old drive being mounted as /tmp and I am too cheap to get a drive right now...

It has very much to do with drivers as Chrome may use OpenGL and hardware acceleration.

Everybody addresses the hard disk, but nobody speaks of the SSD :-)

comment How do I troubleshoot hardware issues related to a computer freeze/crash?
Nice, but you should refer to memory testing utilities, which can diagnose DRAM hardware issues from software, without special hardware. One such utility is memtest86+(bundled with many Linux distros).
