comment Why does firefox still display website ssl to be 128 bit encrypted after changing to 256
A certificate has a hash, but it’s distinct from the HMAC used in symmetric encryption. The most prominently-displayed one will be the latter, and renewing your certificate will change the former. Check your ciphersuite (and Firefox version).

comment Should I disable swap file if I have lots of RAM or should I move it to a virtual RAM drive?
I would (and do) only turn it off for an SSD, since you only get so many writes (even if it’s a lot now), with 6GB. It works well.

killall by itself. -9 is KILL. Default is TERM. Use TERM.

If you have to do this “sometimes” and killall isn’t working, uninstall Skype, because it may be behaving like one giant bug.

comment How to reboot/shutdown Windows 8 without the mouse?
@Saber: This is to shut down from the desktop, not Modern UI. If you’re in a M. UI window, press Win+D twice. Apart from that, please go ahead and post that as your own answer. =)
