comment Asus Laptop only booting into BIOS (help!)
If you're getting into startup repair (as mentioned in your question) you're actually getting beyond the BIOS already. It sounds like your OS is corrupted somehow.

@user231729 Once you create the table you can filter the entries (see expanded answer above). Doesn't matter their location.

comment Two rpms with the same prefix name on one repository
O.o I know that normally running the command yum install <insert package name> works. Specifically you listed MySQL-server.x86_64. That should work. The mysql.x86_64 the one that I pulled from my Fedora 15 VM that I'm running.

comment Is it possible to include content from one word doc into a second word document that dynamically updates?
This would be a cool thing, but I don't think that it's possible. The only thing that I can think of is to merge the two documents, but that's a manual process.

comment How do I determine my bottleneck when executing unit tests?
Not to the extent that you're experiencing. At least that's what I assumed. BTW I believe that this question is a little too broad for this site. It's going to be really hard to pinpoint what the issue is here. Just warning ya in case it gets closed.

comment How do I determine my bottleneck when executing unit tests?
They both have the same amount of ram. That's a pretty big clue that it's prolly not the RAM. I would assume it's the fact that you're working with two very different processors. Beyond the fact that the Intel has more cores than the AMD, the AMD is for more "consumer" level processing. The Xeon is made for more Server level processing which in this case will help you out.

This is all good, but Virtual Box should support this after correct installation of Guest Additions.

comment Python IDLE not starting when clicking .py files in OSX Finder
That's because it assumes you're wanting to run the script instead of edit it.
