comment Setup Ubuntu L2TP VPN server and authenticate users with certificates
Did you ever get an answer to this? From this writeup and others I've seen, the most common setup involves 3 (!!!) passwords, one each for IPSec, L2TP, and PPPD. As that links shows, one of the 3 (IPSec) can be replaced with per-user certs, using racoon. Ideally I'd like to get the number of passwords down to zero :-/

comment How can I connect 2 windows 8 machines with WiFi Direct?
I think the thing that is always missing from discussions of WiFi Direct is that it's not a product (like say Windows File Sharing), it's a standard (like say Samba). It took me ages to understand this. You can find tons of products that implement Samba (and likewise a few that implement WiFi Direct) but there's not going to be a button called "WiFi Direct" in Windows, just like there's no button labeled "Samba". If you get WiFi Direct support, it will come from a product. I haven't found one that works in Windows yet.

It looks like this experimental feature was dropped at some point.

comment Run a local command after closing an SSH connection?
This does fix the problem, but it seems like overkill -- this runs the command not only on directory change but before every command, even if the PWD hasn't changed. I was hoping to run it only after finishing an SSH session, because I don't change the XTerm title anywhere else...

comment Will 128MB video card be enough for Windows 7 Aero with two 720p monitors connected?
If you really want improved h.264 experience I'd say ditch Aero and prioritize the performance that matters over the eye-candy. That computer just isn't going to have the horsepower to keep up, no matter what you add to it.

comment How can I tell if my SRT SSD cache is big enough?
OK, basically your comment (you'd only notice a speed improvement if the existing cache happened to be "full") was the meat of my question -- how can I tell if it's getting "full" / overtaxed? I guess that's not constructive... (funny how Joel said "not constructive" was a bad closure reason on the podcast... :( )

comment How can I tell if my SRT SSD cache is big enough?
SRT != hybrid, as @Breakthrough says. I like that the drive and cache are independently upgradeable, and that I don't need a second bay (as my current, monster 17" laptop has) to get both lots of space and great performance.

So, bottom line, don't worry about it because 16GB will probably be "enough", and I wouldn't notice an upgrade to a 32 or 64GB module instead?
