comment Why are there so many pins on a SATA power connector?
They should have given us two power connectors: one for a limited current 5V and 12V (total of 4 pins, with a separate ground for each), and a separate one for all the server/enterprise extras like 3v3, staggered spin-up, more current, etc. 99.9% of all HDDs would come with a tiny 4 pin power connector only and nothing else. Alas.

comment What do you do when you need whole-words search in Firefox?
@DCShannon I'm afraid not, no. The work happening in Bug 269442 briefly raised my hopes, but nothing usable yet.

comment Why does emptying disk space speed up computers?
This does not happen: "so when the drive is held up for an extended time looking for a free location to write to, it can't read any data to you" – it just doesn't. That's not how filesystems work. Please edit your answer to stop spreading misinformation.

comment Prevent “document expired” message and just show the expired page?
This is it! The setting is under Tools / Options / Advanced / Network / Override automatic cache management. Not sure if it works for all cases of "Document Expired", but it worked for the one I had, where I was unable to View Source of a POST response.

comment Where can I download Windows 8 legally, from Microsoft?
There's a better way now, one that doesn't require any product keys (but still requires one to run an EXE on a Windows machine for whatever reason): the Media Creation Tool described in this answer.
