comment How do I complete file paths in emacs?
@Zeynel Works fine for me in Mac OS, too. Either with the Apple installed version or the homebrew version. Also worked with the fink version on my older machine.

comment Why is serial data transmission faster than parallel?
Cross-talk reduction techniques have been known for decades, but as noted in the comments to the questions they introduce additioanl costs, and some of them make the synchronization problem worse (twisted pairs with different twist-ratios have slight variations in impedance which means slight variations in transmission speeds, and ...).

A feature taken intact from earlier file systems and on display in unix. Not sure if it originated with unix or comes from even earlier in the history of computing (multics, maybe?).

Of course you need to be able to stop using and unmount the affected volume as soon as possible if you want to go this route.
