There are plenty of Linux filesystem viewers available for free (as in, read-only) and that's all I've ever needed.  The things I do on either OS are so different as to be disparate, and I find little use for write access from one to the other (although Linux has had solid ntfs support for quite some time now).  Anything I REALLY need to share, I just stick on a USB stick or in a shared folder on the NAS (running Samba, of course).

Nevertheless, native, transparent access to a Linux filesystem is an attractive idea.
Checking out Paragon's offering now, thanks for the tip.  Thmbsup

Thanks for reporting that Tinman, I posted about the Parallella project earlier this year, and was wondering when the darn things would get out the door.

To clarify, this thing isn't the supercomputer-on-a-board it's touted to be, but a platform for learning parallel programming, which is where the future needs to go as CPUs keep getting smaller and smaller with more and more cores. See the other thread for more details.

Thanks, TM57!  Thmbsup

I just posted about the security sign because it's a very effective "visual deterrent"; any thief would think twice unless they somehow knew beforehand it wasn't genuine.  The article also mentions that thieves won't touch a house that dogs obviously live at.  I leave a couple dog toys in the front yard to "remind" them.

I got a DMCA takedown notice because some xplorer2 icons I had posted on Mediafire had the filename "xplorer2.zip".
Nikos was very understanding, but said as much; it was a dolphin caught in the tuna net, and there wasn't much he could do after the fact. 
Result: I still had to take the files down, but then I uploaded under a different filename and all is well.

A hazardous serum that turns people into zombies, the product of a failed military experiment to create super soldiers, is accidentally released and infects a group of friends when they eat ice cream that has come in contact with the serum.
Sponsored by Edy's Slow Churned Ice Cream...LOL! (I am serious!)

Sounds like a nod to the 1985 movie "The Stuff"

Say it's so, c|net, please say it is...

In the future, we might be able to save our history to a glass storage medium that could potentially outlive humankind. The new type of memory also touts mind-blowing specifications, such as 360TB per disc data capacity and the ability to withstand extreme temperatures up to 1,832 Fahrenheit.

They're calling it the "real-world version of Superman's 'Memory Crystals'".

Or search for "Superman Memory Crystals"; it's all over the web this week.  Thmbsup

374  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Your thoughts wanted: The right way to honor the passing of a DC forum member on: July 08, 2013, 09:57:47 PM
Alternatively, a small badge (perhaps an infinity symbol or Hex63 of the I Ching ("After Completion") to indicate the person has passed on, plus disabling further personal messages on the account and deleting any other contact information would be the easiest and best thing to do? That way anybody who was curious about the person after reading their posts would learn he or she is no longer with us.

Actually, my first thought was that some sort of indication should be made on their profile; thanks for thinking alike, 40Hz  Thmbsup ...and great ideas too.  
I know there are online spaces where you can store your logins and passwords and a few pre-written emails to be released on notification of your passing, so I'm thinking something along the lines of a "final post" stored in profile-space that's only unlocked when the "time comes" might be a good idea, but may not be practical with the forum software.

A memorial section in the forum would not be out of line.
Only thing I've ever seen done is along the lines of what OP has already accomplished. I'm not really sure a dedicated Obit section is really needed. It's too much the constant reminder, and a bit dark (as in tends to dampen mood).

Ah, differences of opinion... I did ask for thoughts after all.  embarassed
After thinking about it a bit, I'm kinda shying away from the idea of a dedicated memorial section as I agree it might creep some people out, but then again in certain cultures, funerals can be quite the party, as it's a celebration of the departed moving on to a better place, and a reminder to the living to do what little livin' they may have left.

So, my vote goes with a wisely-worded mention here in Living Room, with some indication in their profile of their passing and a link to the relevant post.  May be especially nice if immediate family/friends could be passed the link as well.

P.S. I just had a thought: Some folks just might be thinking, "Well, maybe this is really too much to get worked up about.  This IS just a software forum, for  cryin' out loud, people come and go all the time."  Well... yes... sorta, but for those that have been around here for long enough, it becomes obvious that under the surface, it's a little more than "just a software forum".  Many of us here have come to know each other almost like extended family, or intimate pen-pals at the very least, and the passing of one of our own can carry the same weight of pain and sadness that the death of a close friend or relative can.  So to honor the memory of their contributions to the life of this site and the relationships we all forged together is entirely appropriate and worth a little effort, if only to aid the process of grieving and closure.  Personally, I'd like that.

Or is he talking about a second monitor?  I've seen this happen before where a dock on one screen (across top or bottom)  reserves dock space across the other monitor as well, so running an application in fullscreen mode on another monitor doesn't get the full display.
