I started programming my sophomore year in high school and it has come easy to me for the most part. My senior year I started to play around with hardware and I believe my true passion is Embedded Software. I currently attend Northeastern University in their Electrical and Computer Engineering Program.

My guess is they are for factory programming via pogo pins

comment Hybrid Raid-1 HDD + SSD — Write Intent Bitmap
@ЯрославРахматуллин this was on a laptop. I couldn't end up setting it up for even a test as there was no way to added a write intent bitmap on demand

comment Sudo vs root; any actual differences?
I think it's important to point out that environmental variables may not be setup the same under sudo as logging in as root

comment Pick which swap partition to use for Suspend to Disk
@LưuVĩnhPhúc honestly not a very good one, in the meantime I ended up just setting it up on the ssd. (The overall problem is due to me using LUKS on LVM so the swap for resume needs to be on the disk decrypted by cryptsetup. I guess I just having lingering fears from the days when the sort of writes done to swap would kill a ssd. I do have vm.swapiness = 1 its honestly just fear mongering :)

comment Pick which swap partition to use for Suspend to Disk
I will need to test this out. I of course knew about the resume= kernel parameter however I thought that only specified to the kernel where to look not also where to store the file. It'd be great if it also becomes where it's stored

comment passphrase for rsa key required only in text mode
I'm sorry I don't really know more, i'll look into it later, you should look at connecting ssh agent with gnome-passkeeper <- stores your ssh passphrase

You need to turned on and configured, it is what will automatically enter the password for you after the first time

comment Sometimes when I check my CPU usage, my 2nd CPU (#1) is stuck going around 90% while the others are around 20% max
Do you have one process that is intensive and only runs in one thread?
