comment Why is HDMI->DVI image sharper than VGA?
"...and DVI supports Electronic Display Identification (EDID)" so does VGA. I couldn't find out whether there is a field in EDID which actually identifies the display type though; do you have this information?

comment Vim: changing tabs to spaces
%s/\t/(eight spaces)/g. You should not have tabs in python code.

comment Vim: changing tabs to spaces
The code is definitely tabstop=8, I can select the single tabs on the 8-space indents. And python in mixed indent mode treats tabs as eight spaces. I don't know how your vim configuration was working to show it before.

comment Vim: changing tabs to spaces
It looks like your first indent was four spaces, and your second indent was a tab, with the code being written for a tabstop of 8. Vim is either displaying or expanding with the assumption that tabstop=4. Do you have the original source from before you edited the files with the bad vim settings?

comment Windows vs Linux Local Time?
@MagomedSegaIsmailov Does Mac OS run on any systems that use BIOS RTC? I'd have assumed that EFI provided some sanity.

comment Windows vs Linux Local Time?
Do you have any information about "it wasn't really a supported configuration and there were a number of caveats."?

comment Replace Front USB Ports in a 2003 Alienware Case
It's just a circuit board, with straight connections between the ports and the header. Most likely used because using standard PCB-mount ports is easier/cheaper than designing a new part to allow the ports to be mounted directly to the case as in @gronostaj's example. There are no chips or logic, so you wouldn't call it a hub or a controller.

comment Replace Front USB Ports in a 2003 Alienware Case
"I'm not sure if these would be more properly called hubs or controllers." These are just ports, not a hub or a controller. The cable goes to a header on the motherboard's USB controller.

No, socket, connect, bind, send, recv, select, are all system calls and documented as part of the kernel. Glibc contains simple wrappers to allow them to be called from C programs, but the real implementation of the functions is in the kernel, and documented as part of the kernel documentation.

comment What are the license(s) of the Linux man pages?
What "network functions" are you referring to? Many network functions are part of the kernel rather than glibc, and the documentation is not (IIRC) part of the glibc documentation.
