comment PC starts to be noisy some time after Ubuntu is installed
@VenomFangs, opening the case often has the affect of raising temperatures as it disrupts the proper flow of air.

comment Why does reducing CPU frequency improve battery life?
The energy spent removing the heat with the fan is negligible compared to the power spent generating that heat in the first place.

comment Can Linux scrub memory?
I meant ECC memory is more expensive ( than non ECC ) and so most people don't have it.

This only applies if you have the more expensive ECC memory.

comment Dead motherboard. How can I save the software on my old hard drive?
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007, no, that question is about how to connect the drive to a working machine to pull the data off.

comment Dead motherboard. How can I save the software on my old hard drive?
Typically Windows will work just fine if you replace the motherboard and it most certainly does not violate the license. Worst case it will tell you that you need to call Microsoft and get them to reactivate it after you explain to them that you had to replace the motherboard.

I'll go you one better: use open source software ( GIMP ) so you are not chained to whatever idiotic things Adobe wants.

Unfortunately this stupidity is just the way windows works; it won't let you delete a file that any process has open.

comment HDD working on Mac but asks to be formatted on PC
If it didn't have enough power to operate then Windows wouldn't be offering to format it. Windows offers to format it because it doesn't recognize the filesystem as fat or ntfs.

It is not important to identify the interface; the command will figure it out based on the relevant IP addresses.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@hekevintran, the way you stated the question it was purely about detection, not recovery. If you want recovery too, then you want par2, which can generate extra parity that can be used to correct some errors.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@JakeGould, no they would not. The whole point of snapshots is that they do NOT duplicate the data and thus, take up twice the space. ZFS can tell you that the data has become corrupted but unless you configure it with a redundant raid configuration, it can't recover the data. If you are using raid, then that is what provides the backup copy that hopefully is still good, not snapshots.

Why? 160 characters is only like 3 lines of text on the page.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@JakeGould, snapshots won't help with that either since all of the snapshots share the same data blocks on disk if they were not modified intentionally.
