comment Is it possible to run 2 different motherboards in parallel?
@DilanV The CPUs will, at the very least, need some way of cooperating about the installed RAM. That's not something modern contemporary CPUs are designed to do. Again, it might be possible, but it's certainly not something you can just do. OSes will likely need to be aware of it too. The alternative is plain old virtualization.

comment bash extract first number from filename
It doesn't actually extract the numbers, so it's not an answer to the question, but in principle you can also do something like for num in $(seq -f '%03g' 1 999); do test -d dialogue${num}||mkdir dialogue${num}; mv -t dialogue${num} DLG${num}-*; done followed by rmdir dialogue* -- the -f '%03g' means all numbers are zero-padded to at least three digits, and since 999 fits into three digits all numbers will become three digits long in the directory names. Plain rmdir fails if the directory is not empty, so is safe. Brace for unimportant error output from mv about nonexistent files.

comment rsync glitches with -X (extended attributes) flag
Do the extended attributes exist after the first run? Use getfattr -d on a file to dump extended attributes. Also consider e.g. btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/….

comment TFS 2010 Transition Validation to Force Field Change
Questions about tools normally used by programmers should generally be asked on Stack Overflow instead. Unfortunately, this question is now too old to migrate, so it'll remain here.

comment Script shell get id and kill process
@RomeoNinov That won't work directly, because OP is already using '' to quote the ps -ef and pipes command.

comment Why visual studio code doesn't run on Ubuntu?
Try running it from a terminal. That will likely produce some diagnostic output; edit your question to include that output, and we will be more likely to be able to help you.

comment Use system reserved partition to create another partition
The boot manager code and boot configuration database won't be needed until you reboot the system, at which point if it's needed booting might very well fail, requiring at best a repair installation.

comment Use system reserved partition to create another partition
Um... I can't say for sure from just a moment's googling, but it looks like it's something you really shouldn't have deleted. "First, it holds the Boot Manager code and the Boot Configuration Database." You might want to make very sure your backups are fully up to date before you reboot the system the next time.

Fair enough, thanks for the link.

comment Alignment with RAID-6 (mdadm) + LUKS + XFS
Normally, I would say to run LUKS between the physical storage device and the MD array. Is there any particular reason why you'd rather do PHY->MD->LUKS->XFS instead of PHY->LUKS->MD->XFS?

comment Getting around the FAT32 4GB file size limit
@redbeam_ This answer was originally posted on a different question which didn't include the PS3 constraint, and which was later merged with (not merely closed as duplicate of) this question.

comment Upgrade dualcore laptop to quadcore laptop?
Generally no, you cannot (without major work) upgrade the CPU in a laptop. We have had several questions about this previously; you could start by looking over the questions about upgrading laptop CPUs.

comment Why laptop battery so small and UPS bigger and heavier but can only hold lesser powering duration?
Actually, the abbreviation UPS in this context simply means Uninterruptible Power Supply. This can be achieved in a number of different ways, the two main ones being battery- and generator-backed. So the "main purpose" of a UPS is to provide uninterrupted, stable power in the face of unstable or nonexistent mains power. How this is achieved is secondary to the purpose of a UPS. The way you have phrased it makes it sound like the two are equally important, which was the point of my comment.

comment used chmod wrongly to mess up copy rights. How to correct
775 is a poor match for 644. Go with 755 instead. Other than that, this is a reasonable thing to try.

comment Why laptop battery so small and UPS bigger and heavier but can only hold lesser powering duration?
@Ramhound Is a backup generator more or less an uninterruptable power supply compared to a battery-backed UPS?

comment Why laptop battery so small and UPS bigger and heavier but can only hold lesser powering duration?
A backup generator is also a UPS (although one that usually takes a little longer to start providing useful power). However, a generator does not use any battery to do so, with the possible exception of the starter which is merely incidental. A generator (general term) also doesn't produce DC, it produces (commonly quite dirty) AC.

comment Can a USB flash drive be used reliably as a (manual) backup drive?
Purpose-made SSDs and your average USB flash memory stick are two quite different things. The price difference for similar capacity is not just for show.

comment Kingston Fury RAM is buffered?
Also, what have you done to try to answer this question yourself? Did you check with resellers to see if anyone states whether the modules are buffered or not? Did you check the manufacturer's spec sheet? Did you use your favorite search engine to try to determine the answer? Or what? Even if these efforts turned out to not help you, we like to see proof of effort in trying yourself first. It both shows that you aren't simply wasting peoples' time, as well as any blind alleys you've already gone down (so we don't need to duplicate them). Please edit the question to answer this.
