Software Development Engineer at Amazon.com

Non-exhaustive list of my favorite languages:

  • C, C++, x86 ASM
  • C#, Java, .NET CIL/MSIL

Experience in compiler development, OS kernel memory management, web applications, web crawlers, data mining, 3D raytracing, and data compression algorithm design.

Oh yes, and an obsessive-compulsive reader of Jeff Atwood's blog. I have fifteen different articles open as I type this.

"I want my ER doctor to understand anatomy, even if all she has to do is put the computerized defibrillator nodes on my chest and push the big red button, and I want programmers to know programming down to the CPU level, even if Ruby on Rails does read your mind and build a complete Web 2.0 social collaborative networking site for you with three clicks of the mouse." -- Joel Spolsky

comment Bitlocker-To-Go on fixed drive
But if set up during USB, and then used via SATA (which makes Windows see it as fixed instead of removable), would that cause problems with unlocking the drive?

Any drive connected via USB, whether via a SATA/IDE-to-USB adapter (HDDs), or native USB (thumb drives), are recognized as removable. The HDD connected straight to the eSATA port is not.

Your first point seems to be incorrrect, Windows 7 currently allows me to automatically unlock my removable USB thumb drive. And yes, it does recognize it as a removable drive.

comment Large recovery partitions
@ChimneyImp - As long as the recovery partition is intact, the machine can always be restored to a working state, without worrying about 3rd-party drivers, etc, that might be missing with a generic Windows installation.
