comment Disk Partition on Ubuntu
@user159377, there's no reason to have separate partitions for /boot or /var. There is very little reason for /home. Why don't you just accept the default install which just uses one partition for the root, and one for swap?

@user159377, I suggest you just put them somewhere in your home folder, yes. By default there's a folder there within easy reach of the desktop for Documents, and another for Music already. No need to partition the drive up.

comment Computer shutdown unexpectedly. Can it be related to bad current?
current doesn't fluctuate on its own. Only two things can alter the current: change in line voltage ( problem with the utility ) or a change in impedance ( the computer is trying to draw more or less power ).

@kobaltz, no, all UPSes protect against brownouts -- that is kind of the point.

comment Can I shrink an NTFS partition running Windows 7 from the 'left' / 'start' side?
@surfasb, it has been that way since DOS 1.0.

comment Can I shrink an NTFS partition running Windows 7 from the 'left' / 'start' side?
@surfasb, moving windows partitions does affect the boot loader since Microsoft foolishly embeds the absolute start sector of the partition in the boot sector of FAT and NTFS partitions, and the boot loader uses that value instead of what the partition table says. Hence, the need to run FIXBOOT after moving the start of the partition.

comment Is it worth upgrading memory sticks with different timing or voltage?
I'm pretty sure he was talking about adding the second stick, not replacing the first.

Why? There's nothing wrong with not having a partition 1.

@timramich, one system suddenly modifying the fs while the other has it open is a sure fire way to hopelessly corrupt the fs.
