@Griffin, I still don't understand your logic.

comment Avoid typing password every time using NX
@Griffin, I don't understand what you mean. Did you mean I should post on Serverfault and StackOverflow?

comment Avoid typing password every time using NX
@Griffin, I actually posted on it, but didn't get any response in quite a long time. I then read the FAQ of serverfault and looks like it is for some large scale network/server problem, so I thought it might not be the right place, then I deleted that post and posted here instead.

comment Does full-disk encryption on SSD drive reduce its lifetime?
@Synetech, actually I was talking about block ciphers. That's why I was asking what the block size is in common OSes.

comment Does full-disk encryption on SSD drive reduce its lifetime?
This answer is logically incorrect! It depends on how many blocks OS encrypt at a time. Suppose it encrypts 4K at a time, then simply modifying a byte will cause writes to 8 512-byte-blocks to SSD, while without encryption, OS (if it optimizes well) only needs to write to 1 512-byte-block. So encryption adds to 8x disk writes. In practise, OS may choose an appropriate block size for encryption, but the answer doesn't address this problem and make any assertion for that. So in practise this answer may be correct but logically it is wrong, at least it is incomplete.
