    However, SSDs perform compression internally to reduce flash writes, so you may gain a bit more disk space, but you lose drive lifespan as it has to write more data to the flash.

    Consoles?

    Are those the things casual gamers used to play on before they moved to tablet and phone games? Didn't realize they were still around.
  3. In my experience, most people don't want to use...

    In my experience, most people don't want to use Red Hat in production systems until at least the .1 release, so I don't see any reason to rush to 7 unless you need some new feature that's not in 6.

    Database server. I think it's 48TB after the RAID takes out a few disks.
  5. Some of our systems use XFS on RHEL6, solely...

    Some of our systems use XFS on RHEL6, solely because EXT4 on RHEL6 is limited to 16TB, and it has a marked tendency to truncate files to zero bytes when there's a power failure. So I'm surprised by...

    Just recreating the partition table with the same settings should work. So long as you know what those settings were.

    Certainly I've done that on a hard drive, I presume the SSD wouldn't have done...

    I'm sure Google are really worried about their, what, 80%? 90%? marketshare on mobile devices around the world.

    Don't worry. In another few years everyone will be saying 'you know, I've got this great idea. Why don't we all implement the same API on all our hardware, so software can easily be ported from one...

    And this kind of attitude is precisely the reason so many people are p-ed off with systemd.

    Feminists claim the Evil Patriachy created a world where women were forced to marry men so those men could control and abuse them.

    Intel has never worried much about chipset compatibility, because hardly anyone ever upgrades a CPU. 99+% of computer users buy a new computer when their old one is too slow.

    (citation needed)

    Most companies I worked for in the UK would hire a female developer over a similarly qualified male developer, becuase they already had plenty of those. They just rarely received...

    If you're writing code that's supposed to be secure and robust, you don't trust external data.

    Ever.

    The spec looks crazy, but any programmer working on this kind of code should know to...

    Interesting. I've been thinking of building a Mini-ITX for my next telecommuting box, and this was one of the cases that showed up online.

    Would be nice to have something slightly larger that can...

    Of course, only idiots build sites that rely on Flash, particularly now it doesn't work on most tablets. It should just die.

    Isn't Chromium just Chrome with that stuff removed?

    Why have 'ls' and 'grep' when the new, improved 'lsgrep' can do both?
