I'm the author of the GPT fdisk partitioning software, so I know this subject pretty well. Previous answers have promoted some misconceptions that I'd like to address....
If you want a partition size greater than 2TB, you must use GPT instead of MBR.
Probably. The catch is that that MBR max...

I think that gets pretty close to a canonical answer ;p

@Dave heh, as I keep telling folk, 4k content isn't here yet, but the monitors are at the point where you can buy one with not too many compromises and good build quality at slightly sub-ludicious amounts of money.
I'm in a college networking class and my professor asked "Why do you think the OSI theoretical model is designed using a layered approach?" I'm confused because I've searched Google for alternative approaches to the layered approach, but I can't find any. Are there other approaches? I feel like any other approach would be synonymous with the layered approach.
In essence, higher layers depend on the lower layers working, while lower layers need not care about what the higher layers do.
Example: Layer 1 just physically moves bits and does not care about what data is being sent.
Layer 2 carries frames to specific network devices (identified by their MAC addresses), which obviously requires a physical medium (and that's layer 1), but does not care about the semantic content within these frames.
Thanks for replying and I agree, but I feel like that's governed by the needs of the hardware and software to transmit and receive messages, and that a layered approach is logically the only choice.
I guess my confusion is with the actual question, I don't understand why it's even a question. I mean if I answered: "Why do you think the OSI theoretical model is designed using a layered approach?" with "It's the only logical choice." would that be incorrect?
Layer 3 carries packets with routing by IP addresses to enable transferring data across different networks and depends on the lower layers to work, but does not by itself manage the delivery of these packets or ensure that packets can be delivered reliably (that's TCP, which is in layer 4), nor does it care about the meaning of the data contained within the payloads of the packets as used by, say, a Web browser or server (that's HTTP, layer 7).
Paragraph breaks result in double line spacing everywhere except immediately after a nested bullet point. Top-level bullet points are fine, it's just the nested ones that exhibit this behaviour.
This is inconsistent. And it looks bad.
In South African English a common mistake is to say:
"I will throw you with a stone"
where the correct phrase is:
"I will throw a stone at you".
Why is the first sentence wrong when one can say:
"I will cut you with a knife"?
Both are "I will" -action- "you with" -object-.
Possible reason: the o...
@allquixotic I'll also suggest if it feels like the kind of uber-specific question that probably won't get great answers on SU. But I'll also make it clear that they should request migration, not cross-post, and that it's their choice.
I need to make two hard drives unreadable. Unfortunately, I have some constraints which make this harder than usual (in particular, they rule out the answers to other questions):
I don’t have a computer to mount the drives and erase them (weird, right?)
I don’t have a strong magnet
I don’t have...
Someone wanted to replace the heads in a drive and he basically called him an idiot for trying because opening a drive without a clean room will instantly kill it.
Meanwhile people who actually have some knowledge agree with my side: > Platters are resistant. Someone said about fingerprints over it: once we opened one HDD, and with it running, we thrown some cigar ashes over it. It was still useable. Putting fingers over it: we still could recover information. It only stoped working when we used a screwdriver to create scratches over it.
On that note I have disassembled a drive myself as well as swapped heads, motors and PCBs. It's not easy that's for sure but also not as impossible as some people think.
Oddly enough I personally have very little experience when it comes to destroying drives. At work, we have a box we just put it in and it's dealt with by a certified I.T. destruction and recycling company. At home, well I've not had any need.
I've taken old drives apart for fun (and even new ones) but never had any reason to actually destroy the data. Most likely it had nothing secret on there anyway and if it did I'd probably have it encrypted to begin with
Sure. You use a USB hub. A usb hub basically goes "Hi. I'm a usb hub, and these devices are connected to me" There's a microcontroller of some sort, often a simple blob covered one, and it handles it.
The name "hub" indicates a few things. You have one upstream port and many downstream ports. ...
