@Moab, any disk performance benchmark as shown on every disk performance review ever, like those at anandtech, tomshardware, and other review sites.

Why on earth would you want to put an expensive, fast ssd into an htpc to hold the OS when the OS isn't going to be needing hardly any disk IO ( to that drive )?

comment Easist way to connect some SATA HDDs to a network without full PC
Close voters: this is not a shopping request. A shopping request would be "which NAS should I buy".

comment Cannot resize partition on HFS+ drive using disk utility
If the mac disk utility can't do it you can use a gparted live cd.

comment How to switch git user at terminal?
I'd upvote your question if you actually showed the git config command instead of just mentioning it.

Probably because your recovery partition starts immediately after it. You will need to move that over so the free space follows the partition you want to grow.

Dumping the hash won't really help you then. What you are looking for is a password recovery tool.

comment How do I mount an NTFS image created by GNU NTFSclone on Windows?
MSI and self extracting executables make sense since they are just slightly different forms of zip files. A filesystem image though, is an entirely different beast that is far more complicated.

comment Does a hard drive remember bad sectors after formatting?
@RodSmith, not so much. AFAIK, Windows happily flags the cluster bad after a read failure without trying to re-write the sector. This is usually why they "go away" when you format; because that causes a write and that fixes the problem.

Not if you are running it on the local computer as opposed to your router.

RAM does not lose power during a reboot.

comment My work is slowing down other users on the same machine
The mem% figure is system wide, so if you are using a large portion, that would slow everyone else down as they would start swapping.

comment Why would a screenshot of Windows show up on Linux?
Most likely what you saw was just some left over data sitting in your video card's ram that was briefly shown after switching video modes, but before X drew to the video memory.

comment Restoring performance and estimating life of a used SSD drive?
@Bryce, incorrect; TRIM is advisory only and intended for performance reasons, not security, meaning that the drive is free to ignore the command or delay erasure until a later time, as most drives do.

comment Triming as alternative to securely erasing a SSD
A secure erase is required to actually erase the medium, not just the block translation tables.

7zip is for manipulating archives, like zip, 7zip, and tar... it does not understand ntfs filesystem images.

Nitpick: ntfsclone is not a GNU project.
