Experimental nuclear and particle physicist. These days I'm teaching, but I've spent a lot of time on nucleon structure in fixed target electron scattering and neutrino oscillations using reactors and beam sources.

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 ...).

comment How to know the process PID in linux machine
Can't help you much with Java. There are at least two older Stack Overflow threads on the subject, but neither has a really good answer.

comment Solved — Hide dot and dotdot (“./”, “../”) directories in NERDTree gVim
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?).

comment I just ran rm /* accidentally, any fix?
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.

comment How do I physically prevent people from unplugging an Ethernet cable?
"Cable ties are a great idea, but they can be easily cut with scissors or a knife. " If you assume users with knives to hand (you should, I have one more or less all the time) then these same users can as easily circumvent this as the cable tie: tip goes in, cable comes out. Perhaps more easily as the motion to release the jack is small and require no appreciable strength.
