comment Why do PCs still require a CMOS battery?
Since when are BIOS settings stored in flash memory? I don't remember any modern motherboard where I couldn't reset its settings by pulling the battery out...

I got "Access Denied" error for your link. Maybe it's country-specific though...

No, I don't, and when I tried adding it, it didn't seem to change anything...

comment How to make vim truly reopen a file as a cpp file?
setlocal isk< does work after I do set filetype=cpp, but writing your full command to ~/.vim/ftplugin/forth.vim doesn't seem to automatically call this. Do I misunderstand what it actually should do?

comment Format a hard drive to work with Windows
Computer Management (or how it was called there) is readily available via Start->right click on Computer->the option there (I don't have a Windows machine right now to check how it was called there). No need to go through Control Panel. +1 anyway.

This won't be persistent across reboot. Or does gparted automatically edit fstab?

comment How do you determine that your hardware is 64 bit capable when there is no operating system installed?
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 you will have to replace the thermal compound if you really want to be able to read what's inscribed on the CPU. Otherwise all you'll "read" is the surface of the compound.

comment How do I determine whether a drive is an HDD or SSD in Windows 8?
@Josh Well the "ask the OS" answer is already much upvoted for a good reason. It's too simple to be fun though. And there always have to be alternatives. Holding the device is much more fun and nothing dangerous in this if you don't drop the device.

Of course, sticker is no-brainer. Even without it you can usually just look at the shape of top cover and tell where the disk is and where the head is.

@Damon you should listen very carefully to hear some disks. Some of them are extremely silent. You still can try hand-sensing the vibrations of seeking, but to hear them you sometimes may need to firmly attach the device to some resonating chassis. Tilting the device is much simpler and quite safe. I would laugh at someone if they told me I shouldn't tilt or rotate my laptop because it may crash its HDD head.

True, but I think you'll have to rotate it very hard to come even close to a head crash. And in case of 2.5" HDD, it has been designed for such actions — it's designed to be used in mobile devices.

comment Why is -r recursive necessary when copying a directory in Linux?
@JakeGould maybe because they may need to preserve ownership and permissions?
