comment How do I determine who the ISP of an IP is?
typically ultra short answers get flagged as needing review because they tend to be spam/comments posing as answers. I wish I knew reviewing your answer (which, ftr, i upvoted) would leave a comment. I'd've come by and clarified/deleted the auto-generated comment had I known. I know now :)

comment Can I transfer data from an old Dell laptop to an external hard drive and then be able to transfer it to a new Apple laptop
they may not have been able to write to NTFS, but I've been able to read NTFS drives going back to at least OS X 10.3. 95% sure I was able to read on 8.6, too :)

comment SATA 3 theoretical speed
@Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 - 1969 MB/s and 2GB/s are close enough to be considered the same ... especially when looking at round numbers: your number is less than 5% lower than the OP's :)

comment Operation not permitted error when deleting as root
@Scott - the question is about external hard drives and linux: Dubious' answer is about an SD card from an Android device that needed to be deleted using Windows. The answer has nothing to do with the question, and is barely tangentially similar.

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
@T.C. is right, ArmanX - if you're trying to avoid using flash (SSD), why would you use flash on USB? That's irrational.

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
See also this Server Fault q&a - if you're running Java (and possibly other apps), you want to make sure you have enough swap for them to increase their memory allocations. I personally stick with the RHEL standard of RAM+2 for my swap partition

comment Yum does not install specific RPM version with custom repo
Do you need to feed it the --allow-downgrade flag because it's already aware of the newer version? Also, yum-versionlock may become necessary on that machine forever after.

comment How to find files and directories that are taking too much space in Linux?
btw - since you want to avoid processing /proc .. I made the following adjustment to your command: for dname in *; do if [ $dname != "proc" ]; then find $D -size +10M -type f -exec ls -lh {} \;; fi; done (presumes running from /)
