comment How can a processor execute more IPS than its frequency?
Er… what? It's impossible for an x86 instruction to be longer than 15 bytes.

comment Google Сhrome new Secure Preferences, how mod preferences now?
This answer is nonsense. The actual implementation doesn't involve SWIFFT at all. chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/chromium/+/trunk/chrome/… And in any case, the steps described wouldn't make sense even if SWIFFT was in the picture.

comment How do I tell if my Memory is ECC or Non-ECC?
Just the EC: None. The 4 is part of the previous field (devices: 4).

comment How to access an USB stick from FreeDOS?
That FAQ is ancient – it's from June 2000. That bug has long since been fixed: freedos.org/technotes/technote/archive/012.html

comment How to install Perl on Ubuntu Server?
PPM is primarily used on Windows systems. It is not necessary, or desirable, on Linux systems. Use apt-get or CPAN to install Perl modules.

comment Is CRT degaussing really dangerous for nearby laptops?
Not to nitpick — but degaussing coils were typically only used in color monitors, where aligning the electron beams with the color mask was critical for correct color reproduction. They weren't generally used with monochrome monitors (like the Macintosh Lisa and SE), as fine alignment wasn't as important.

If so, they're using some method other than your MAC address.

comment Are microSD cards lockable?
The hardware lock switch doesn't exist on microSD cards. Even on full SD cards, it's a physical switch only. (That is, it doesn't connect to the card internals at all.)

comment How to jump back to the first character in *nix command line?
If you're on an Apple laptop, Fn + Left/Right are equivalent to Home/End. (And relatedly, Fn + Up/Down are PageUp/Down.)

comment NTP - How are NTP servers so accurate
A Raspberry Pi doesn't make a great NTP server, though, as it's using a somewhat flaky, low-quality network adapter (the LAN9512 chip).

comment If Google provides public DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, who provides 4.2.2.2?
1.1.1.1 is unofficially reserved (allocated to "Debogon-prefix") — it receives a ton of bogus traffic from misconfigured devices, so it's unusable in practice.
