comment How can I turn off anti-aliasing for xterm / rxvt-unicode?
I don't think a window manager can apply antialiasing - antialiasing must happen during rasterization. The window manager only gets the rasterized result, by then it's too late. Do you have any sources for your claim?

This does not answer the question - the question is how to disable antialiasing, not how to enable it.

comment Do partitions on SSDs map to physical addresses? 2
Actually, on a modern HDD the mapping LBA -> physical sector is also variable. For example, if the drive detects a bad sectior, it will transparently replace it with a good sector (on the next write); this is known as "sector remapping". I believe in (very) old HDDs the mapping was fixed, as you write.
