@JourneymanGeek Oddly enough, my 3 TB WD Green does not indicate that it is an Advanced Format drive anywhere on the label. The QR code is not of much use, either; it just points to the product page for the drive family (not even the specific model WD30EZRX).
It's 512e, but some older WD drives I've worked with do in fact say so.
> Advanced Format Drive. To achieve full performance: • Windows® XP, multi partition and cloning software users – use WD Align software available on http://www.wdc.com/advformat • Windows® XP, single partition – set jumpers 7–8 prior to installation or use WD Align SW • All other OS configurations – drive is ready for use as is
That's what many older WD AF drives say. If I recall correctly, the WD Black hard drive that came with my laptop had the same notice.
I remember being able to configure the fingerprint reader on my old laptop to be stricter with the fingerprint scanning; it could be configured to have a false acceptance rate of 1 in 100,000 (0.001%). Not sure how good my current laptop's fingerprint reader is, though.
Some programs can be called from the command line. For example (nmap) which you only have to type nmap. Some programs requires you to go in the right directory before calling the program. I was wondering if there was file (with a list of commands to call without navigating) that would automatically find that perticular program. This way, I wouldn't have to navigate to the directory before calling it.

You need to create a local branch that tracks a remote branch. The following command will create a local branch named daves_branch, tracking the remote branch origin/daves_branch. When you push your changes the remote branch will be updated.
For earlier versions of git:
git checkout --track ori...
I have used fetch followed by checkout ...
git fetch <remote> <rbranch>:<lbranch>
git checkout <lbranch>
... where <rbranch> is the remote branch or source ref and <lbranch> is the as yet non-existent local branch or destination ref you want to track and which you probably want to name the sa...
I'm cloning repositories on my 5T external drive. It is extremely slow. It is not an SSD, but I feel that something is wrong somewhere.
I created two partitions on it:
10k MB (~10 GB): ext4
the rest is ntfs
Even when reading or saving a file (using vim or any other editor) it takes more tha...
hey guys i bought a used lenovo with windows 10 pro original preinstalled (i don't have the installation disk) but I'm a linux user so if I remove windows and decided to reinstall it in the future, will I be able to use the license key currently used on Lenovo?
By installing the memtester package, you can check your system for errors while it's still running. No need for a restart, just run that application.
To install it, open a terminal and type:
sudo apt-get install memtester
You can then use it like so:
sudo memtester 1024 5
This should alloc...
@qasdfdsaq http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2657832 "Showers of sleet and snow are likely at times during Sunday and overnight into Monday when they will also affect some southeastern parts of England, although the showers here will generally be a mix of sleet and hail near coasts. Accumulations of 0-2 cm of snow are likely in places at low levels, but locally 2-5 cm over hills and where showers become aligned in bands in the northeasterly flow. Ice will be an additional hazard overnight, particularly after showers.
Here in Liverpool I have been sitting outside enjoying the sunshine (sunglasses required!) ;)
The lungs are the primary organs of respiration in humans and many other animals including a few fish and some snails. In mammals and most other vertebrates, two lungs are located near the backbone on either side of the heart. Their function in the respiratory system is to extract oxygen from the atmosphere and transfer it into the bloodstream, and to release carbon dioxide from the bloodstream into the atmosphere, in a process of gas exchange. Respiration is driven by different muscular systems in different species. Mammals, reptiles and birds use their musculoskeletal systems to support and foster...
"The lung tract is lined by epithelia with hair-like projections called cilia that beat rhythmically and carry mucous. This mucociliary clearance is an important defence system against air-borne infection. The dust particles and bacteria in the inhaled air are caught in the mucous layer present at the mucosal surface of respiratory passages and are moved up towards pharynx by the rhythmic upward beating action of the cilia"
"Air, having deposited dust and all kinds of harmful bacteria inside the nose, then passes over the three undulating structures in each nostril. Any foreign bodies that attach themselves to the tiny hairs there are then neutralized by the antibacterial mucus there. As it meets these undulations, the air changes direction and strikes the mucosal fluid on the wall of the nose."
"The cleaning of the air is most wide-ranging, because if a bacterium or other harmful body were to enter such a sensitive organ as the lung, this could have damage the individual’s health. Yet if any harmful bodies nonetheless manage to pass through the nose, they are caught in the respiratory passages."
I'm sure if sufficient numbers were exposed to asbestos, and silicosis evolution would cause the appropriate mutation to occur.
