comment Why is my RAM is not fully used in Windows?
@Michael, yes it can address 4GB of space, but much of this address space is dedicated to Memmory-Mapped I/O. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory-mapped_I/O

comment Windows Notepad and Notepad++ show newlines in same file differently
I would guess that somehow Notepad++ is editing in with the wrong newline mode. This might happen if CRLF's aren't used on everyline. What happens when you open it in gvim?

comment what are these “online installers” for?
For the record, if you want an "offline installer" for something that is typically an "online installer." Try searching for a "redistributable." These are packages designed for those who will be running the installer on many computers.

comment Rapidly change CPU speed
@BlueRaja, Also, lowering the cpu clock does save some power, but not much. What really saves power is that fact that you can you lower the voltage of the processor as you lower the clock. The is part of speedstep/powernow as well.

Also, windows does this just the same. You must've just never noticed. If it didn't your battery life would be greatly diminished.

comment Simple dropbox client for windows
@iglvzx, I know there are various clients for Linux. I attempted to find a alternative for windows, but could not. Hence the question.

Please comment to the reason for the thumb-down. Is software recommendation off topic here?

comment What medium should be used for long term, high volume, data storage (archival)?
I wonder if there is RAID for DVDs.... ie.. if you store DVDs for two years, you might be seansibly sure that 80% of them would be error free, so you might have two parity disks. Hmmmm. usenet uses parity files I think. Might be worth using something like that for DVD/CD/BD archival.

For the record, writing to 20-50 blu-ray disks is not out of the question.

1) Can you provide details about this? Will normal hard copies not last that long? (Photos from 100 years ago seems to be fine, AFAIK). 2) If no current data medium will last this long, I suggest that we use the closet solution possible. It's depressing that decades from now we won't be able to look through old boxes and expect to be able to look at any of our old, forgotten photos, etc.

I agree @Shinrai. I am welcome to moving this somewhere else if someone can comment on where it should live.

comment Should one keep their old graphics card installed in addition to their new?
@DarthAndroid, Can you please explain "the primary card would be doing all the rendering anyways." I don't understand. If my second monitor is hooked up to my 9800GT, will it not be rendered there?
