comment How can I access the contents of a ZFS snapshot without affecting its current data?
Perhaps it's because I'm using ZFS on Linux, but I don't see the .zfs folder under my pool's mount point

comment Can you run TeamCity 7 on an intel 2700/amd e450 based system?
To add a (late) suggestion, check out the HP Proliant MicroServer line. They're priced in the same range as a NAS enclosure but have some nice server features, like an IP-KVM tool.

comment Ubuntu Server - RAM Upgrade
I updated the answer. If this is your first RAM upgrade you can probably find some good tutorials online. The hardest part is just making sure you buy compatible memory; the actual installation is dead simple.

comment What basic linux command-line utility can I use to test a JDBC connection?
Thanks! I forgot to specify that this is a command-line only server, but I'll see if by chance I can run it remotely over xming

comment Javascripted malware detected, how to delete?
Sounds like a SuperUser.com question to me -- not programming related

comment What's the difference between surfing and downloading speed?
as mentioned in my answer, different browsers also support different numbers of concurrent connections--so older browsers may feel much slower because they allow fewer requests to run in parallel

comment What's the difference between surfing and downloading speed?
@Gnoupi also, most browsers support the [CTRL]+[F5] shortcut to bypass the cache and reload the page 100% from the server

comment 64 bit Windows 7 + 32 bit windows XP dual boot?
...oh yeah, +1 for VirtualBox. Why pay a couple hundred for VMWare Workstation when you can get something that does very nearly as much (in some cases more) for free.

comment 64 bit Windows 7 + 32 bit windows XP dual boot?
Virtualization is an option, but it does often have hardware requirements and incurs a performance penalty on both the host and guest OS. For the OP's specific issue I'd agree that it would be the better choice, but not a definite.

comment What is Gnome / KDE etc?
The difficult part of understanding the different components of a Linux system versus Windows is that Windows rolls everything up into a ball and gives you the ball as a whole (filesystem, kernel, console, gui, applications, servies, etc...). Linux gives you alternative choices for nearly everything. It's like comparing a toy boat to a lego boat. The toy boat you're stuck with as it comes, the lego boat you can rip apart, extend, shrink, or swap out tons of pieces.

comment Tools / Applications to detect altered photos
A perfectly valid point, but the metadata within could still be useful in determining the history of the image.

comment Tools / Applications to detect altered photos
Aww!!! but what's the program that CSI uses?!?! lol, jk... I know there's no silver bullet, but have seen some proof-of-concept apps and was hoping the techniques had trickled down to some open-source utilities

comment My computer raises the ambient room temperature by about 4°F. I don't like it (in the summer)
I think he's hoping that turning off the fans will keep the heat in the box rather than spreading it throughout. :-S strange question, but interesting to think about

comment Hard drive won't initialize, spins up, makes 2 clicks, and spins up again
Drive brand-loyalty is always funny. Personally I won't touch Maxtor after having a half-dozen fail in a month (between me and friends); I've had great luck with WD, a couple have arrived DOA but the ones that have arrived working are still working (knock on wood).

comment Virtual PC versus VirtualBox
All three are fairly comparable. VMWare is nice, but if you're not going to buy it then you might as well use VirtualBox to avoid the hassle of having dodge around paying. VirtualPC is fine, but I've never found a reason to use it over the others.

comment VirtualBox: have higher guest resolution than host resolution
It probably is; it's been possible on real machines for quite a while--but personally I think it's a complete load of crap and a terrible feature. Can I ask why you think it would be so nice?

comment Time Machine clone for Windows?
Acronis really is a pretty solid product and a reasonable price. Macrium Reflect is another in the same vein.

comment What is a good utility to monitor for intrustion attempts while on public WiFi?
Intrusion via public wifi is probably a considerably lesser concern than sending data unencrypted.

comment Windows Shadow Copy Backup and Restore
So it will only keep the shadow copies when doing more-or-less a full partition backup? Bleh
