comment Trying to connect two computers to a switch, but I get “cable unplugged” in the second one
Does the light come on when you plug it in? Most likely you really are getting a link but the router is refusing to give you more than one IP address, and Fedora is just reporting a misleading error message.

comment How can I open a massive PDF?
What are you plotting? 5 billion data points? Drop some. You should be able to get a plenty good graph with only a few thousand samples.

comment 35% Maximum Frequency in the Windows Resource Monitor
It is unclear what you mean by "35%" and "100%". Percent of what? How are you measuring this?

comment emacs C-/ behaves like delete instead of undo
This is probably why emacs also binds undo to C-_, which is the one I normally use for undo.

comment When connected to wired internet connection, have the packets usually been transmitted wirelessly at any point?
Historically, satellite uplinks used to provide high bandwidth ( but also high latency ) compared to trans oceanic cables, so at some point, it would have been somewhat likely that trans oceanic traffic would use such a route. With the proliferation of fiber, that isn't really true these days. Also there is a big difference between a satellite relay and say, unencrypted local wifi, which I'm guessing is the kind of thing this classmate was alluding to.

comment Linux software RAID 10 on mixed drives - alignment
@benbradley, the official lvm docs I suppose. The raid array exposes its stripe width in sysfs via the optimal_io_size attribute, and lvm uses that as the default --dataalignment value. Oh, and fyi, if you want a better performing raid10 array, use the offset layout with a large ( 8M ) chunk size. You get the sequential read performance of raid0.

comment for 4gb ram, will I need ram optimizer(e.g. cleanmem)?
It is only limited to 3.5 GB if your bios reserves 0.5 GB for IO devices. Some systems reserve more, some less. My Dell at work can only use 3.2 GB since the bios reserves 0.8 for IO.

comment How do laptop battery voltages affect runtime?
This assumes that the two batteries have the same amp-hour rating.

comment How do laptop battery voltages affect runtime?
If the higher voltage battery has the same mAh rating though, then it holds more power, so will last longer.

comment How do laptop battery voltages affect runtime?
@DanielRHicks, yes... so assuming the regulator can handle the higher voltage without burning out, and the amp-hour rating of the battery is the same, the 4 cell pack will run longer.
