comment How to measure total RAM usage of a program under Windows?
The question has a screen shot of that application along with a description of why it does not provide sufficient information.

I would also point out that hard links require extra effort to delete completely.

comment Will the maximum speed of a network card reduce the impact of an incoming DDoS attack?
@IsmaelMiguel hence my stating "a publicly-facing site" is a poor choice for an Android web server.

comment Will the maximum speed of a network card reduce the impact of an incoming DDoS attack?
An Android tablet is a perfectly reasonable place for a web server when used for certain specific applications: I would not expect a publicly-facing site which could be DDoS'd is one of them.

comment Downloading software without bloatware
@Bob I would argue that malicious code can break the VM wall and infect the host OS or even BIOS. However, your typical payload of a browser toolbar or McAfee trial is not malicious and should not do that.

comment Is there still a reason to choose a 10,000 RPM hard drive over an SSD?
@PeterHorvath the answer specifically states cost per mb/gb would be lower with a hard disk, and an SSD while costlier... the answer clearly addresses the fact that hard drives are cheaper per megabyte than SSDs. I don't think anyone in the IT sector at the time this question was asked would debate that. The final nail in the coffin is the question itself: Aside from cost, is there still a reason...

comment Why are special characters such as “carriage return” represented as “^M”?
The term you are looking for is digraph, which means two characters that represent one character. Specifically, digraphs and trigraphs are used to represent nonprintable characters. Historically they have also been used for characters that do not appear on a keyboard, although with modern GUIs and keyboards this is less of an issue so this use is more archaic.

comment Mouse wheel scrolls when it shouldn't in Windows 7
In my case it was the hardware, and swapping hardware confirmed. New mouse, no problem. Same mouse different computer, same problem. In the past two years I have been using a different mouse without the problem in my original question. Your answer may be appropriate for some who google this question, but in my case, it really was hardware.
