comment Can hibernating the computer damage the RAM?
Computers usually use DRAM so it seems unlikely as the DRAM is constantly refreshed. I means that whole RAM is read and written to about 15 times per second. So it would seem likely that any other read/write would have negligible effect on lifetime. Assume you would hibernate/resume only for 15 minutes each time - you would get 13500 writes of whole memory due to refreshes and 1 due to resume.

@user3767013 IIRC I could but I will check next time.

comment run a computer without RAM?
In addition to what @reirab said it's possible to run a 'PC' without DRAM in a sense of executing instructions - this is mode in which system operates before the DRAM controller is initialized (it's done by BIOS/EFI/Coreboot etc.). However it's unlikely that you'll be able to do anything useful as most components probably use DMA anyway.

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
@JasonC - other option is just put it in LVM and don't bother with such details as 'where to put partition to resize it later'.

comment Winbind group lookup painfully slow
@Marty What distro are you using? Also they are in /usr/lib/sudo not /usr/libexec/sudo, at least on Gentoo.

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
@Virtlink - microwave have emitter of range 800-1000 W. Typical leakage from microwave is 1W. WiFi have 100 mW output. It's more like standing next to a candlelight then being in oven.

comment Why do Jumbo Frames hurt latency?
AD PMTUD: I thought that it's combination of DF + Fragmentation Needed (or Packet Too Big in IPv6) - TCP/IP stack being concerned with throughput tries to discover the MTU (if there is more then one hop as you wrote) but UDP/IP would either use right size of have longer time with 'classical' frames if the FN/PTB would be passed to application. Is it correct description of PMTUD (sorry - I haven't touch it for a while and some details might got blurry).

comment Why do Jumbo Frames hurt latency?
It does not quite answer (or at least I don't see it). For TCP it will hurt the latency of connection initiation (Path MTU discovery) but it should not hurt the UDP as there is no Path MTU dicovery there - packet might be either dropped or not. Also it should not hurt the latency after the Path MTU was discovered as at this point no datagram which would exceed MTU would be sent.
