comment How to create a FTP Server on Ubuntu 10.04?
vsftpd is unnecessary though if you already have the SSHD daemon enabled. I wouldn't use vsftpd unless i first determine that the SSHD FTP subsystem insn't enough.

This is certainly the best option if you don't need fine grained account control. SSHD 5.x+ has the FTP subsystem included.

comment Windows 8 & Java Development
I did the Win8 upgrade and it backed up my old windows directory and all my previously installed programs worked just fine and all items in program menu were retained. After install, i recommend installing a program called "Soluto".

comment IE9 websites won't load on Windows 7
Toggling compat mode wont work. If the sites main HTML page has the "HTML4" declaration header in it, then it forces the browser into "Quirks mode", which is the same as being IN compat mode: the equivilant of IE5.5. mode, even if you set it to not be in compat mode.

comment SSD Drive - external vs Internal
In my experience, eSATA usually cannot go any faster than 1st generation USB3 (around 20-30 MB/s). The reason being that the eSATA is probably not connected through the system bus in the same way that internal SATA is connected. eSATA has the benefit of the command queueing like USB3, but not optimized, IMHO. I could be wrong.

comment SSD Drive - external vs Internal
You certainly would want to use USB3 instead of USB2, which the newer i5 laptops have, but even that 1st gen USB3 is too slow. What you really need is 2nd gen USB3.0, which is the only thing fast enough to keep up with an SSD, and there are not ANY laptops that have 2nd gen USB3 yet.

Maybe when it goes into power save it tries to load config to RAM and there is a bad stick of RAM in the computer?

Ok, so from what I hear, it sounds like the Windows8 start screen is incapable of spanning 2 screens?

comment Run batch file with custom drive mappings
I prefer SUBST.exe to this method since, if you ever had to delete the symbolic link then it would SEEM to be very precarious. Using the "subst /d X:" command is much safer and less scary than using "rm -r X:\" . I know MKLINK is a symbolic link but i would still want to be careful "just in case" it was a hard link.
