Basically this, for everything. Dual monitors allows you to have one monitor devoted entirely to the single program you're focusing on, and another monitor for any kind of reference you may need. It makes you much more productive because you're not constantly alt-tabbing.

One day I was reversing a malware and after statical analysis I had to run it under the debugger to check something out. And when I run it to my amusement I saw a chat window and the owner of the malware started talking to me. He said that I shouldn't reverse it. Then he tried to delete the MBR and restart the OS but I was on a VM so I cancelled it then killed the process and restored the MBR. Shit was funny as fuck. He even talked to me via the mic. In the end I figured out that the malware was publicly available version of backdoor called DarkComet.

>>71059743
Once I was hacking this military installation, I found this server or some shit like that called "War Operation Plan Response". On the computer was a game called Global ThermoNuclear War. Had to backdoor that sucker. I was just using a IMSAI 8080 at the time. I started playing as the Soviet Union v's USA and unfotunately that shitty bfucking game actually made the computer think that the soviets were attacking the USA. Got arrested by the FBI but I escaped by posing as a tourist at the NORAD base. Anyway I had to convince the military that the Soviet Union was NOT launching an attack but that it was simply a game and they should wait and nothing will happen. After finishing the game the computer asked if we would like a nice game of chess. Then the FBI let me go and everyone lived happily ever after and everyone smiled a lot. that was back in 1982

I'm setting up a media pc with archlinux
I'm planning to use lvm without encryption
I have 3 drives, an ssd and 2 hdd's
I've setup an efi system partition for uefi boot outside of the lvm,
1 volume group with 20GB root partition restricted to the ssd only
1 home partition for the remaining of the ssd and the 2 drives
I'm wondering, as I fill up the home partition, will the physical drives get written in order (ssd-hdd1-hdd2) or will the data be over all 3 drives? thanks!

I bought a cheap used workstation box on eBay but it only has 8gb of ram. I’m thinking of upgrading but it’s only got 4 ram slots and the 8gb is 2x4gb. So do I buy another two 4gb and settle for 16gb of ram, or throw out the existing two stick and buy 4x8gb for maximum business experience?
32gb would cost about 2.25x as much as adding 8gb but for 4x the ram but I’m also really poor like literally destitute. Is 32gb of ram worth it?

Is there a way to make JPEGView use 100% zoom by default (even if it means only showing a small portion of the image)?
AutoZoomMode=Fill enlarges the image most of the time and AutoZoomMode=FillNoZoom seems to do the exact same thing as FitNoZoom, which is rather weird.

So excluding programs and games. What did people use floppy's for back in the day?
Where people like saving their writings to a floppy's ?
like where was there 1 floppy for 1 document or how did this work?
Did people save pictures to it?
i want to know because in the late 90s floppy's where around however they where strange compared to CDs and we begged for bigger capacity floppy's until USB flash arrived.

What can you use 1 MiB for?

For what where these things used around the office?
1 document = 1 floppy's?
Did they have multiple documents in them?

my dad kept floppys that were for like software, drivers, or system restore disks in his filing cabinet. floppies that got used often were organized in a drawer at his desk. floppies that got taken to work or exchanged with people usually floated around inside a little box (I think it was originally a box that printer paper came in which he started throwing floppies into)

Keep in mind, the "floppy" which was in the OP was actually the physically compact version of floppy disks. Where I'm from, everyone called these "diskettes." The older floppies were much bigger, which I think is what started my dad keeping them in a filing cabinet. The originals were 8-inch. Then they created 5 inch and eventually the 3 inch that's in the OP.

AFAIK, the reason Windows usually puts the system on C: is because for a good while, many computers had two floppy drives, one for the larger floppys and one for the smaller size.
>>
>>71061207
I think usually people would just write stuff like that on the computer and back it up to a floppy. If you didn't have your own computer, then yeah you'd probably have a floppy you put in someone elses computer so you could write and keep your documents.

A:\ and B:\ was the two disk drives before HDDs become mainstream.
When the diskette drive came out a:\ became the new small disk format and B:\ stayed the 5.25'' format.

Unity lets you autohide the dock and the top panel doubles as a menubar. For maximized windows it also integrates the titlebar. It might have two bars, but it is made for maximum screen real estate.
