comment How-to: Merge Windows and Linux home folders into one (dual boot) using ntfs-3g
@Kiwy For sure. Thanks for the insight! I'll have to test drive it for a while and see how it does. I did notice a slower ls -l in some directories. And yeah, I'll be sure to update with all the details. I'm thinking of putting up a Wiki page on archlinux.org too.

@Kiwy It's SSD so that will make up for the ntfs-3g performance loss. Also, I just booted into both Windows and Linux desktops, and my permissions and ownership seem to be just fine in both, with shared files!!. :D :D :D We'll see how it plays out...

@Bruno9779 I was thinking about that, but I'm not sure how I'd link between ext4 and NTFS, so it's visible in Windows (e.g. c:\Users\trusktr\.bashrc -> /home/trusktr/.bashrc, don't think it's possible).

@Kiwy Seems using ntfs-3g.usermap has allowed me user/group ownership ability, and arbitrary permissions. This is an experiment though. I'll test it out, and not rely on it, and see how it goes for a while, then move back to ext if I need to from my backup.

@Kiwy The previous comment is for you too, but SO let's you only mention one person.

@Ian Well I have all my /home files backed up, so I figure the worse thing is I'll have a mess of files to delete from c:\Users but I can still recover my /home files. Which features in particular do you think that I'll need that will be missing? And what may be the consequences?

comment How do delay the screen lock until some time after the screen turns off in Windows 8.1?
@DaveRook I looked at the power options in control panel, power options in metro settings, display options in metro settings. Nothing.

comment How can I determine what encryption algorithm someone used if I have their PGP Key ID and Fingerprint?
I'm still don't fully understand. Is the following correct? When the recipient creates his key pair, he has chosen an algorithm for it. When the data on my side gets encrypted with the data encryption key, that will be using my algorithm of choice, and then the data encryption key gets encrypted with the recipient's public key and therefore with his chosen algorithm. He decrypts the data encryption key with the algorithm that matches with his private key, then he decrypts my final message with the algorithm I've used. Is that right?

@DaveRook I just looked in my Administrative Tools and I have no such Local Security Policy option. I tried as admin user.

@dangph no, but I never use admin. I'm always a standard user and I remember having the option. Also, I just logged into the admin account that I use only for maintenance and [un]installing stuff and there option is also missing there.

@e-sushi Would superuser be a better place to ask?

comment How do delay the screen lock until some time after the screen turns off in Windows 8.1?
I don't have any such setting in mine. Here's what mine looks like: 50.116.4.56/~/img/win-8.1-missing-lockscreen-setting.png. It looks a little different than yours. The weird thing is that I changed to a new power plan, and now the screen turns off without locking until some time further on... Wish I knew why so I could manage it. It'd be really nice if I had those options like in your screen shot. I had those options on my other computer that had Windows 8.0.

Maybe the option has been removed? If so, hopefully there's a way to do it in the registry.

comment How do delay the screen lock until some time after the screen turns off in Windows 8.1?
@DaveRook Nope, that section has "Lock screen preview", "Lock screen apps", and "Camera", and none of those sub-sections have anything regarding the lock timeout, unfortunately. In Windows 8.0 there indeed was something like that in the similar section of the settings.

comment How to prevent “lock” on screen power-off in Windows 8
@Ramhound I can't find the setting in Windows 8.1. Any idea how to do this in Windows 8.1? In 8.0, there was a setting in the Metro-style "Change PC settings" area.

comment Is Intel/Nvidia Optimus technology supposed to switch instantly between GPUs?
@rob Yeah, exactly! Well, I factory reset this Sony Vaio Flip 15 back to factory condition, and the problem still exists right out of the box. If I unplug my charger, I still experience a 1+ second screen flicker. I guess I'll have to return it unfortunately. I wanted to like this laptop.

@techie007 Yeah, i got the answer. But a non-tech-savvy person will get a refund/exchange and not bother "fixing" things and wasting time if he can just get something that "works".
