Wolf K wrote: BTW, AFAIK, there isn't a single Linux software package that does something no Win/Mac package will do. If there is one, I'd like to know of it. Wrong. Completely wrong. Take "openplotter" for example. Not available for windows. Not for OSX.

RAM Slack? by Davej
I have been reading some stuff about digital forensics and have seen several comments about "RAM slack" where supposedly some old OS versions were so idiotic that patches of RAM larger than the desired file to be saved, were written to disk. To me this sounds utterly absurd.

Took 3 months to get a keyboard by Flasherly[_2_]
First one was an Ebay scam out of China. Crypto- Ebay/China -Currency. The seller first lists, waits for the buyer's take, then pulls out and disappears with the buyer's money. Ebay facilitates the scam with its 2-month adjudication policy: 2-month's shipping time, exclusively, for Chinese...

What can be used to boot an older computer? by [email protected]
