comment What's the equivalent of Linux's updatedb command for the Mac?
Heh, I just posted this as a comment.. Then saw you said this. I think this is a nice little mod to make. :)

comment Putty Window inactive after certain time
I'd run a ping window in parallel, set it to ping an infinite number of packets. When your putty is interrupted, stop your ping and look at the stats. I'm willing to bet you'll see some packet loss. It sounds like the connection is just being interrupted.

comment Is it possible to connect a HDMI port to a thunderbolt port?
It sounds like you're trying to transfer data between them.. But your subject matter seems contradictory, as you make reference to HDMI. Can you elaborate on what you're trying to do?

comment USB Hub Error -62
I too have this going on. It must be a fairly generic error code. My case is I've got 3 usb web cams, two of the same model, one of the two produces this: "error -62"..

comment Start new process as pane in iTerm
A lazy answer from me (hence it's a comment), you may find this reasonably do-able within a screen session. Or maybe tmux would work?

comment What limits a motherboard from supporting more memory?
It really is likely a function of the motherboard chipset, which the board-maker merely uses, they don't generally create them. If you find out what your chipset is and go read up on it, you should have your answer. I find it easier to just try things.

comment How do I consistently keep my RAM usage low?
@DavidSchwartz yeah, and if the system needs access to those pages, they're in ram. I'm not saying it's a good idea, like I said in an earlier comment, he's chasing an uncatchable dragon.

comment Many BSODs - where to look for the explanation?
It seems like the most likely culprit. Your memory tests could be indicative of a motherboard problem. But single-bit errors can happen and while I've never directly seen it, I suspect your memory is in fact fine. Anyway, the obvious place to start is the PSU. Maybe buy one from a place where you can return it if necessary.

comment How do I consistently keep my RAM usage low?
@Adel The swap-file comment isn't in jest. The swap file is a file on your hard drive that your system uses as ram when your memory's full. Hard drives are VASTLY slower than ram so when your system starts depending on your swap, performance suffers. Though, it can be a pleasant alternative to an "out of memory" error. Anyway, your OSes swapping algorithm may not be well suited to your application and you have barely enough memory that turning off swap shouldn't be a major problem. The said, you sensed some jest - that's because I think you're chasing an uncatchable dragon.
