comment Encrypting a SSD
@Shinrai Full Disk Encryption isn't always a sign of too much paranoia. I just TrueCrypt's Full Disk Encryption on my Netbook (yes, on an Atom CPU) simply to be on the safe side if it gets stolen or lost. Paranoia would be once you start worrying about data (like the Password/Key) persisting in RAM after the power is off, which is indeed a problem but requires a targeted attack instead of just an accidental loss.

comment Why does Windows 7 have a seven in its name?
@Software Monkey Indeed. If they call Windows 7 7, then they should have already called Windows XP 6, which they didn't. Technically Windows 7 is the 7th NT release though: NT 3.1, 3.5, 4, 5, 5.1, 6, 6.1

comment Would a Macbook Air (2010) be able to use a 8GB RAM module once one exists?
@Braden: Why not? His question was is the MBA supports 8 GB Modules or if there is ome fundamental hardware limitation and the answer is a clear "No support for 8 GB, since the RAM is soldered on and can't be upgraded".

comment TaskManager, HyperThreading: Which CPUs are real and which are HT?
Indeed, for the most part it should be transparent and handled by the Windows Scheduler. However, if a 2-Thread Application is running on a Core and it's HT Core, then that can be a problem. Especially when setting affinity manually. SQL Server is one application that can have some quirks with HT, but I'm having some others (mainly some that I wrote myself :/) that don't balance well.

comment Mouse Cursor Occasionally Looks Wonky
I have the same issue with my Radeon 5870 by the way, so it seems like a driver thing.

comment Is it possible to change a PPC Mac into an Intel-based Mac?
Hackintoshes indeed work for iOS development, but sometimes Apple updates the iOS SDK and requires a new OS Version, which can be a pain to upgrade.
