comment How much speedup does a hyper thread give? (in theory)
@Konrad: I think the point I was getting at, is the difference between one core and two cores might be more valuable than the difference between 4 and 8 or 2 and 4. I.e. Having a second core, for a poorly threaded app might help a bit more.

comment How to specify LDAP user name for connecting to Active Directory?
Be aware that your login name in AD is sAMAccountName usually. So ken. Whereas your CN depends on how the person creating you typed in the display name at create time. That might be Ken Smith or Smith, Ken or Ken J. Smith or actually anything they like. (Also recall that periods and commas need to be escaped with a backslash, so it might Smith\, Ken J\. as the value.

comment How can I fill (not replace) TAB with Spaces in MSWord?
@Daniel Beck: I see, I was not suggesting one tab with one space, but rather one tab with many periods (I did not notice the dots represent spaces). However, my notion will not work, for a different reason as I was suggesting a fixed number of tabs, and he wants it alighned still but with spaces instead of tabs. Oh well.

comment How do i reformat my Macintosh?
Then format it as NTFS, then HFS, then FAT32, and you stand a better chance of the data being much harder to retrieve.
