comment Windows 7 deleted severeal months of disk change
@TeddHansen: I suggest you edit your question and copy some content, including the screenshots, from your blog post. Also, I think you should mention that this is a SSD. SSDs have "funny" firmware (relocating data automatically etc.) but I don't know enough about them to know if they can cause such phenomenon.

comment Windows 7 deleted severeal months of disk change
@surfasb: Restore point is created during an app install or system update, and it is rolled back if an installation fails or if you hit reset button during the install... But rollback after 3 months? Not plausible.

comment PKI Intermediate Certificate Trust
@Paul: Nothing. Some people put too much trust into PKI. But basically "some random CA" is not much safer than self-signed cert, trust-wise. But, of course, you cannot just order a signed sub-CA from a reputable CA, without some assurances about how it is going to be used.

comment PKI Intermediate Certificate Trust
@Paul: Yes! This is the whole point of intermediate certs... No need to trust them explicitly, having their "parent" root CA trusted explicitly is enough.

comment On the Performance of TCP implementations of Linux and Windows
Without measuring, and without seeing what's really going on on your network, it's hard to say. But I think the chance that it's the difference in the TCP congestion algorithms is pretty low, especially if your network is not 100% congested all the time. There are many other factors that can affect browsing speed.

comment Why do HDDs mostly have the same speed as 5400, 7200, 10000 RPM?
@sawdust: You're right, I misread the article. Removed that part. BTW SMD, as far as I remember, is Storage Module Device, not Drive. And yeah, CDC9760 was big as a vacuum cleaner, sounded like one, so no wonder it used vacuum-cleaner sized motor :-)
