I'm primarily a computer and photography enthusiast, but I have a variety of other interests as well, from video games to fountain pens. I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously; if there are any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

As a photographer, I use a Pentax K-5 (as well as a K-r as a backup or secondary camera), with a small selection of Pentax lenses. You can also find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

comment HDDs occasionally “click” and dump this error
Looks like the drives are intermittently disconnecting from the system. Are the cables firmly seated? If not, this is probably some SATA controller issue.

comment How to re-shrink a bloated vhdx
From my experience with Hyper-V, the minimum size you can shrink the virtual disk to seems to be based on the partition table inside the VHDX, so you might have to shrink partitions through Disk Management, then shrink the VHDX to minimum size. Afterwards, you can set the VHDX back to full size and resize the partition accordingly.

comment What exactly is the “Shellshock” vulnerability?
@Raystafarian: I see no reason for this to be off-topic here. Although security-oriented, it is specific to a particular application (Bash in this case) and computer software is explicitly on-topic for Super User. In fact, we could really use a canonical question and answer describing Shellshock, so I've tagged it [community-faq-proposed].
