Here on Stack Exchange, I exchange bits and pieces of wisdom on diverse topics, and I've tasted quite a few things. My specialties are software design and OS & network administration, but can also comment on topics as diverse as category theory, linguistics, and aircraft design.

comment Advantage of windows 8 apps over desktop programs
You mean, transition to mobile? What about a small utility app that interfaces with the desktop app. Maybe enough to work on a few components and sync them back the full-powered desktop app.

comment What is BIOS and why do we need it?
+1 The reason modern operating systems replace the BIOS drivers is that its hard to call 16-bit BIOS drivers from "protected-mode"-- 32 bit mode. Cheers.

comment Computer boots only to motherboard splash screen
Usually the "BIOS setup" option is hidden. Research your bios brand to see what it is for your bios. F11, F12, F10, TAB, DEL, ... could be one of those.

comment How to encrypt 3 drives on linux?
Idk. I've been meaning to switch to it for years, but now I'll just wait for btrfs, myself. But I thought raid required hardware support? @Hennes?

What is this "Pentium 4 splash screen?" Do you mean the bios splash screen?

comment How to encrypt 3 drives on linux?
If btrfs were stable, I'd recommend that. It handles both, and is much easier to configure than LVM. However, it's still in development. Sans that, I recommend LVM, with an encrypted filesystem.

comment How to cut and paste tabbed lines with auto indent set to on in vi
If you can't find a good solution here, the people over at vim_use@googlegroups.com are smart as a tack. Some of them are even vim developers.

Everything I know about is is from :help quoteplus and :help quotestar. It works for me on Linux, but I know nothing of Mac.
