comment “2 way” NAS 'time-machine' backup
Hmm. having doubts with "install java". This is something synology doesn't have natively and relies on much knowledge and tinkering? There are some packages, but they don't seem to run for each OS version, nor for every cpu type. I'm not looking forward to "auto-upgrade OS" or whatever breaking stuff. Kinda conservative, I know, but backups should just work. Keeping it in mind though

I'll check it out and see if it's easy enough to use. I was going to shy away from homebrew sollutions, wich tend to degrade / involve hackery over time, but if this is officially supported it could be a contender!

Something simpler like a rotating backup (incremental?) would be useable as well of course, but the thing is: local delete should be recovered from :)

comment Are computers with more RAM potentially faster if not all memory is usually in use?
This question really needs a definition of "in use". Every answer (as the currently accepted) that claims cache tells about a use of memory. This is probably the more usefull definition, but separating different uses of memory would be helpfull. I assume we might not want to discuss if completely unused memory is helping...

comment Broken mouse cursor on main monitor, Windows 7 64 Bit, ATI Radeon HD 7870
(fyi: the 'breaking' seems to be repetition of the top-left of the cursor: here you see a pointer repeated, there are also versions of the 'text-selection' repeated, and there is also one that doesn't seem to have anything showing when repeated: your cursus will be gone, but still working)

comment Broken mouse cursor on main monitor, Windows 7 64 Bit, ATI Radeon HD 7870
I have a suspicion it has to do with java. This stacked / repeated mouse pointer seems to come up more if I'm running java-based stuff like eclipse and spark. Also running one (center) screen with oracle virtualbox fullscreened ssems to intensify this problem from once a week to everyday.

comment Can I use vodka to clean my keyboard?
drying tap water could leave residue (calcium? lime? not sure what the correct form of the dutch 'kalk' should be in english), so whenever possible, dry in rice.

@Pepe : I say this might just fall under "software tools commonly used by programmers" (also see here: stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic )

comment How to best clone a running system to a new harddisk using rsync?
I'm not sure how and why, but the excludes were wrong anyway. They actuallywere in the dry-run I did, not sure why. (well, I copied the format from a semi-random place, so that might be the reason?). Anyway, with the -x firmly in place per your advice I didn't worry too much, only thing extra happened was that some unimportant stuff (old backups-of-backups for instance) have been 'saved' as well.

comment How to best clone a running system to a new harddisk using rsync?
I don't believe I have them on separate systems I'm afraid, so the exclude seems prudent. I'm reading mixed stuff about the speed of - v, so I'm not sure what to do there ;). Git is a good point, I'm sure /home have some of that!

comment How to best clone a running system to a new harddisk using rsync?
While you make a good point, it's not a requirement I currently have, nor need :). There are several other discs in the system (about 7) and I have to draw the line somewhere ;D. So OS doesn't need splitting at the moment. I mean: I agree the system is good, just not something I'm looking for now ;D. So if I leave it all on 1 disk, the fact I'm copying external will make it seriously slow, wouldn't it?
