Q: Protecting or marking self answered questions to avoid "lack of research" downvotes

AntonioI recently had a small problem to solve, googled and found a solution. Since the question was out of Stack websites, I thought I would post it already with an answer, and so I did it: Replace any number of spaces using regular expressions However I got a downvote. I can only guess, but it wasn'...

I just can't get rid of the feeling that I'm getting left behind in the growing trend towards super-hard games
From Software carved out a significant niche with the Souls franchise, and now we have Bloodborne
I know Lords of the Fallen tries to bridge the gap between mainstream games and hardcore difficulty games, but it's not perfect

I've had a lesser case of astro.ufl.edu/~ken/crash happening.
I'd LOVE to see a software fix for it

@JourneymanGeek wow, i wonder how many hours it was used after it couldnt store a single bit anymore? I have always assumed that once you tear the heads off, the platters would be raped. How to tear off all heads at once, one way that i still want to know more about is when the temperature on the drive goes below the "dew" point for the moisture in the air in the drive. The smallest ammount of condensation, and the heads get tore off?
Having done tons of "tape" which is prone to condensation in a completly different way, I still wonder why there is not a huge warning, about it for hard drives, and wonder how many have been lost.
Tape was said to "air ride" on the drum, it was also said that the tiny heads in the drum also air ride, but IMO they more like dug in. When the drum got cold, and even the tiniest fog gathered on the drum, the tape would be Grabbed by the head and spun around tearing the tape out, and making a terrible mess often including breaking the tape.
With tape machines they put in a condensation sencor (most simple wet curcuit) and the machine would disable, before you would stuff a tape in. of course this did not always work :-) but at least they had a safety contingancy.
The hard drive manuels and warnings do have a condensation warning about going from cold hot air extreemes but like the other 50 warnings :-) that everyone ignores because it doesnt usually apply. Then it is never discussed on the web or "discovered" when it may very well have happend thousands of times.
Where does it say anywhere (on the web), about how to treat a "laptop" with a hard drive when going from/to huge temperature changes. There has never been any reason for people to write it up or warn about it. Uhh hard drive die, they do that.. . . well no they really are amasingly reliable, for some people.

@JourneymanGeek gibson once admitted to setting up a deliberate disinformation campaign as part of his beliefs of keeping information away from people as much as possible, when it comes to security
his words "I set up a deliberate disinformation campaign from the beginning" !
there used to be a website, grcsucks that exposed all his rubbish claims, some is still on archive.org

(user config for rsh was misconfigured on our site, but not london. So, rsh logins for a specific 'utility' user kept failing)

Okay, how can I get Outlook to show me what email address a received email was sent to?
I have like 100 email addresses in our organization
And Outlook will simply show "Oliver Salzburg" for all of them
I can pull it from the email headers, but I would really love to see it right away
 
It's empty, just like space
Oh, it's requesting to use Flash lol
