comment Computer shutdown unexpectedly. Can it be related to bad current?
@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.

comment Does hiding a WiFi network help against interferences?
Routers don't adjust the broadcast power automatically, since it is illegal ( the FCC limits it to 100mW ). Some will let you bump it up, but technically you are breaking the law ( not that you're really going to get caught ).

comment Is there a way to determine if TRIM is why my HD is slow?
Simply booting from the livecd won't do anything. You would have to delete and recreate all of the files with kernel discard enabled since it only issues the discards when you delete files.

I'd stay away from the discard support in e2fsck for a while yet as it still seems to be buggy.

comment Duplicating contents of a VDI file to a larger one?
I don't use virtualbox, but it is quite simple with other virtual machines like vmware, qemu or xen, so I can't imagine that virtualbox can't do it.
