comment Long delays when laptop cannot access domain controller
@CharlesH: Interesting, good to know. I doubt there's anything weird on my laptop like that but I guess I really don't know for sure. I feel like it might be a group policy refreshing issue, but I'm not sure.

comment Long delays when laptop cannot access domain controller
@CharlesH: I believe so. I guess what I need to know first is, is the behavior I'm seeing normal? There's not much point trying to identify the cause if it's a well-known issue. But if you don't experience the same thing when you disconnect from your domain then it becomes a lot more interesting.

comment Does every OS need RAM?
@agtoever: Huh? The cache-as-RAM trick doesn't suddenly stop working when RAM is initialized. It's just that at that point it's foolish to avoid the RAM, so no one ever tries to. But the trick has nothing to do with RAM being uninitialized; that's just when it's actually useful.

comment Does every OS need RAM?
@agtoever: Cache as RAM is definitely possible for CPUs, but I don't know what privileges the code needs to do it (not sure if ring 0 is enough).

comment What can cause this corruption on NTFS? (External SSD)
@NuTTyX: Ohhh sorry I misunderstood. No, there was no hub -- in all cases it was directly connected to each laptop.

comment What can cause this corruption on NTFS? (External SSD)
@NuTTyX: When you say "first computer" do you mean the laptop I had used it with for about a year? If so, no -- it was inside that laptop. However, for the other two laptops, yes -- it was connected via USB.
