comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
While this answer probably suffice for most hobbyist, then it is bad advice for real servers -- the answer depends on how the application is written, because running out of swap space will cause the out-of-memory killer to kick in and terminate a process by random (yes you read that right; "random")

+1 for actually refering to kernel configuration parameters -- The key is in the part of the question If I have no swap, I get an 'out of memory' error -- which is false -- the truth is that when you run out of swap space the out-of-memory-killer will kick in and kill a random process to free up space -- so the amount of swap space needed depends on how your application is written.

comment Computer is slow to power up - how to fix?
I would suggest to disable any devices in the BIOS which you are not actually using, and see if that helps.

Looking at this picture: geeks.com/… I can see that there is a DVD drive top left above the 3.5 drive bay.

comment Network Problems of Ethernet?
@SudiptaChatterjee: I think that is what I said -- VLANs are only availble on higher end switches, and even then VLANs does not provide client isolation -- the client isolation is what you get by default when you are on a public wifi such as in starbucks

comment Network Problems of Ethernet?
Sounds about right -- there could be one more issue -- most wifi networks comes with a "client isolation" option, which when enabled prevent laptops to see each other -- that is a great way of making sure that virus from one private laptop does not spread around the school -- wired network usually does not come with that option unless you have really high end and expensive switches.
