comment Website is securely not secure
@user20574 depends. In general, probably not. The cookies would be domain locked. But there are other ways to leak info across domains (or else doubleclick/google wouldn't be worth so much). Again, it depends on how they coded the page.

comment Slow directory removal (rm -rf) on Max OS X
Besides storage type, speed may also depend on filesystem. What filesystem type is the area with the files? bfs or local? a journaling filesystem has more overhead for deletions.

comment Website is securely not secure
A note I'd add here is one of the reasons why this is bad, and is flagged. Suppose you had a login to pandora.com and there is a session cookie sent to .pandora.com that encompasses your login session. If this is also sent during HTTP sessions, your session is now in the clear. You've been taken over. Yes, the server can say "only send this cookie for HTTPS", but you'd have to be a geek and track your server responses to figure this out. So for non-geeks, it will just flag this, though not saying they do a good job saying why this is bad.

comment How to input a list of websites, and it output list of IP's?
Just a reminder, a list of IP addresses may or may not be useful. DNS names/Websites are not 1 <=> 1 to IP addresses. A website may have more than one IP address (server farm). An IP address may have more than one Website (shared hosting).

comment Is it possible to uninstall or disable iTunes in OS X?
I know this is old... But there's also the iTunes helper app. Go to System Preferences => Users and Groups, look in Login Items, see if you have iTunes Helper there. Remove it if it is.

comment How to escape “!” and “&” in docker's environment varibles
Have you tried with single quotes? Since you don't have any variables to interpolate, you can get away with single quotes here.

@user16973 that's a whole other flame war :) I'm sure you'll find people on both sides of the debate. I'm not going to answer but you easily can find lots of others who will

comment What is the difference between Pentium(number) and just Pentium?
@ramhound another tidbit - AMD came out with the 64 bit extensions first. Intel was still trying to shovel Itanium to people who didn't want them. Intel then backtracked again and released 64 bit x86, of course changing the name from AMD64 to the (less elegant) EM64T. How could they do this blatant copy? That license agreement. What saved AMD before is the same that allows Intel to clone ideas and then beat them with better manufacturing skill.

comment What is the difference between Pentium(number) and just Pentium?
@user16973 Odd I hadn't noticed - my recent computer is i5 and not badged as a Pentium. It seems that some retailers still call their Core series Pentiums‌​. For me this sounds old, but maybe they think there's more oomph in Pentium over Core. In this case Pentium means Pentium series, in effect indicating Intel x86. In this case it is pure marketing, no indication of rank. These are obviously post-4 processors
