comment In what way does non-“full n-key rollover” hinder fast typists?
You have to be very fast for six keys to be a hindrance. At some number, though a touch typist will see a hindrance. Remember, it's not when you're trying to push multiple keys simultaneously, it's when a finger is pushing a key before the other finger has fully released. If you try 'asdf' repeatedly with less than four key rollover, you will drop characters. Six keys should be fast enough for almost everyone.

comment In Tails, how long should it take to wipe 16gb system memory at shutdown?
I wouldn't worry about powering down interrupting a memory wipe. A few seconds without power will guarantee dynamic rams are wiped.

comment Why are the number of cores in a processor normally even
Actually there are an awful lot of processors with 1 core. Last I checked, 1 was an odd number.

Then pick a different checksum algorithm, like openssl dgst -md5. Same code.

comment How can I hide or show rows automatically based on a value in a cell?
You can use conditional formatting to automatically highlight rows. It's not hiding the other data, but it will pick out the matches and doesn't need VBA.

comment Why is deleting a file faster than copying?
That's also how disc scans can recover "deleted" files (not restore from recycle bin). If you compare the copy time to the overwrite time, you'll find they are closer.

comment If a server is just a big computer, why not just use a server as your computer?
A server is a computer that provides a service; a desktop is one that sits in front of a user. Those are not contradictory (think X Windows server). But a computer designed for data center use will be noisy, hot, and inconvenient on the desktop.
