I'm the king of the analogy. It's like being someone who is good at saying something is like something else.

Graphics cards use a lot of juice, so it may well be the PSU is not man enough for the job.

You have two hands, yet only one body, yes? So it is with MP3.

comment Can't create any folder in htdocs on ubuntu
@khaverim That may fix it, but it makes your whole web installation inherently insecure. Now anything and anyone can write to your web directory - anyone that has access or could gain access to your system through whatever means fair or foul can now publish anything they want on your website. That is how most phishing sites get hosted.

comment Archiving large folders
No you can't. Tar is a tape stream format, xz is a compression algorithm. You have to decompress the xz stream whilst streaming the tar data until you reach the file. There is no way of "jumping in" and just decompressing the one file like you can with things like Zip, where each file is compressed individually.

comment Is it insecure to use a swap file that multiple systems can read?
I can't believe anyone would spend the time and effort to write Windows malware that would read raw data from an ext4 partition, find a swapfile on it, and work out what in it is sensitive information. The ROI would be zero.
