comment What is the difference between 'physical' and 'logical' size?
Yes. Although next-generation filesystems like btrfs (maybe ext4 too, I don't know if it's in the kernel yet) support inlining small files along with the file metadata, so if it's below a certain size it won't take up an extra cluster. This means improved access time as well as potentially reduced space.

comment What happens if I use RAM of a faster speed than the CPU supports?
Certainly, but the information might be helpful to anyone else who finds the question.

comment What happens if I use RAM of a faster speed than the CPU supports?
It's not always a waste of money. For example, memory rated for 2133 MHz at 1.65V would likely be able to run at 1600 MHz at a lower voltage, decreasing power usage and heat generated, and potentially increasing system stability. If this matters to you, or if the price difference is small, it could be worth getting the faster memory. But for most users this will not be significant.

comment How to backup a bulletin board hosted by a 3rd party?
It's not as good as a database backup, but you might be able to get the content with a program like HTtrack.

comment How to move linux distros without losing data
I can't imagine it's a good idea to try this - you might get away with it since Mint is so similar to Ubuntu, but I would not be surprised if you ended up with a broken system. You can certainly preserve your data (as in, everything in /home), but expecting installed packages to work is probably unrealistic.

comment what is the best way to send a large amount of data between two computers?
Probably because Windows auto-configures the connections with some default non-routable IP - as long as they're on the same subnet and don't assign the same one this will probably work.
