comment Thrashing on the WinRT framework?
This sounds like a better question for StackOverflow, because it is a question about a specific software technology, rather than a general computer science question. If you agree, you can click the "flag" button underneath the question and ask the moderator to migrate it (but don't cross-post). Alternatively, if you want to make it on-topic for CS.SE, you'll need to provide all relevant background about WinRT, so that this isn't a question about WinRT but a question about the conditions under which thrashing can/can't occur.

comment Edit text areas using vi key bindings, inside the textbox, in Firefox (without opening a separate window)
@IngoKarkat, if you look at the answers, you'll find they don't answer my question. All the answers there involve starting up a separate process which opens up an external editor in a separate window. That's one of the things I read before asking this question. (Thanks for linking to that question; I had seen it before, but it's good to have linked for reference.)

comment How to do secure erase of CF card over USB in Linux?
An overwrite is a good first start, but an overwrite does not erase remnant data that may be left on bad blocks or on remapped blocks. I understand that there can be a significant amount of data left behind, even after a single overwrite. ATA Secure Erase is designed to address this problem. And every source I've ever read says that for flash-based media, it is very important to use ATA Secure Erase: an overwrite is not secure enough. That's why I'd like to use ATA Secure Erase, instead of an overwrite. So, any suggestions on how to do the ATA Secure Erase?
