comment What disk image should I use with VirtualBox, VDI, VMDK, VHD or HDD?
Performance wise, I think the best is to create fixed disks if you have the space. Otherwise it is very stressful on the OS when using the virtual machine instead of once at creation time.

comment apache client denied by server configuration after mac OS X upgrade to Yosemite
This is cool, although the old Order/Allow/Deny are still working if you have the access_compat module turned on. I think it would have been better for me to get errors and fix my setups instead of letting it go for longer with the old configs.

comment MemTest86+ bad adresses constant despite swapping sticks, processor/MOBO to blame?
@imsotiredicantsleep, some people have 2 computers with the same specs and thus can swap parts between both. But I totally agree, hardware going bad is hard to test for most of us, unfortunately.

comment How to convert PSD to JPG or PNG on Linux with Gimp CLI/batch mode (or other server-side tool)?
Interesting that you say that the Gimp has great support for PSD. I have had a lot of problems loading any PSD files with the Gimp, at least under Linux (I don't really use MS-Windows). Now on the other hand I have more luck with convert to convert PSD files, something like this: convert sample.psd[0] sample.jpg. The [0] index is to get the resulting image (all the layers merged on in image.)

comment Using `badblocks` on modern disks.
I would replace the drive as soon as sectors are being replaced. how do you know that blocks are going bad in normal operation? Do you get a signal in some way?

comment How to separate number by its decimal point in Excel/Calc?
Just wondering, why isn't there some form of FRAC(A1) function to retrieve the decimal part? It seems that's something people do quite often, right?

comment How to set up multiple IP addresses on my Linux?
Is there a limit to the number of IP addresses you can add to a device in this way? On my end I've been using the interfaces definitions with eth0:0, eth0:1, etc. which is limited to 254 IPs per NIC.
