I'm a full time database programmer and occasional all-around coder. Started with dBase II in DOS, used Clipper, Paradox, Access 1.0 through 2007, and now .NET VB / SQL Server / Windows Forms / Developer Express Components. Yeah, I'm pretty old.

comment Is this a good computer chair for everyday computer use?
Do whatever you must to get an Aeron or equivalent. It will be the best $850 you ever spent. Sit4Less.com is the recommended vendor. Everyone sells them for the same price, but twice a year they have a 15% off sale.

comment FTP - transferring files eats up transfer - how to optimise it?
As far as I know, you can't execute a transfer using Filezilla from a command line. Is that what you're asking about?

comment Is the response time of a digital monitor important?
Current LCD displays mostly have response times (time to switch a pixel's color) of 5 ms or 2 ms with the 2 ms being the more desirable. While fast action in gaming is often cited as creating the need for faster response, simple scrolling of a text page reveals the difference between slow and fast response displays - slow response "smears" when scrolling.

comment Why do HDDs suffer from performance loss due to capacity decrease?
Yes, but - a typical drive may have one, two, or three platters. The total capacity isn't an absolute indicator of data density. Here's a post (rml527.blogspot.com/2010/10/…) that lists Western Digital 2.5 inch drives with densities of 160 GB, 250 GB, 320 GB, and 500 GB per platter.
