Q: Where does data written to /dev/null go?

A: It goes into a special data sink in the CPU where it is converted to heat which is vented through the heatsink / fan assembly. This is why CPU cooling is increasingly important; as people get used to faster processors, they become careless with their data and more and more of it ends up in /dev/null, overheating their CPUs. If you delete /dev/null (which effectively disables the CPU data sink) your CPU may run cooler but your system will quickly become constipated with all that excess data and start to behave erratically. If you have a fast network connection you can cool down your CPU by reading data out of /dev/random and sending it off somewhere; however you run the risk of overheating your network connection and / or angering your ISP, as most of the data will end up getting converted to heat by their equipment, but they generally have good cooling, so if you do not overdo it you should be OK.

Paul Robinson adds:

There are other methods. As every good sysadmin knows, it is part of standard practice to send data to the screen of interesting variety to keep all the pixies that make up your picture happy. Screen pixies (commonly mis-typed or re-named as “pixels”) are categorized by the type of hat they wear (red, green or blue) and will hide or appear (thereby showing the color of their hat) whenever they receive a little piece of food. Video cards turn data into pixie-food, and then send them to the pixies — the more expensive the card, the better the food, so the better behaved the pixies are. They also need constant stimulation — this is why screen savers exist.

To take your suggestions further, you could just throw the random data to console, thereby letting the pixies consume it. This causes no heat to be produced at all, keeps the pixies happy and gets rid of your data quite quickly, even if it does make things look a bit messy on your screen.

Incidentally, as an ex-admin of a large ISP who experienced many problems attempting to maintain a stable temperature in a server room, I would strongly discourage people sending the data they do not want out to the network. The fairies who do the packet switching and routing get annoyed by it as well.

<q> is email case sensitive?
<google>Yes, according to RFC 2821, the local mailbox (the portion before @) is considered case-sensitive...
<q>is gmail case sensitive?
<google>No, e-mail addresses are not case sensitive, so Gmail addresses are not either. Those would all get to the same recipient. Because all e-mail is transmitted with a protocol called SMTP, and because SMTP is not case sensitive, you will find that no e-mail address in the world is case sensitive.

Not every website needs to have a minimalist 3-word-on-every-page layout with big-ass pictures in the background and useless javascript all over the place. Put a fucking sidebar or some shit.

Most web deign these days seems to just copy whatever Apply/MS/whoever is cool right now is doing. Remember the shiny table Apple had? Bam, every one had to have shiny table. Selling software? Put it in a box on a shiny table. Have icons? You know what would make those like 2 million times better? If they were on a fucking shiny table.

Then flat tiles. Man, shiny tables are like totally awful. Make everything flat and square and in tiles. Preferably ones that jiggle like titties when you mouse over them. Can we have them shiny? No? Ok, then put the most garish color scheme you have all up in that bitch.

Holy shit! Guys. Guys! What if we had a giant mother fucking image as a background? And then it does all this weird shit when you scroll like some parallax fuckery that I read about? Even better, lets make it animated, because people with slow connections are just the worst. And besides, what kind of plebeian wouldn't want the same bullshit irrelevant hipster image with an instagram filter looping endlessly? That way you can see the parallax effects even better.

I swear, sometimes I think there's 3 web designers that are in a dungeon somewhere and every 4 years they come forth like Moses with the "next big design fad" that everyone follows for the next 4 years.

Once upon a time there was a programming language called C. And it had 2 memory management functions: malloc() and free(). But it was too complicated.
Bjarne Stroustrup decided that C memory management should be easier. So he invented C++. In addition tomalloc() and free(), C++ had new, delete, destructors, RAII, auto and shared pointers.
Guido van Rossum found that C++ was also not simple enough. He chose another way and invented Python - a language which doesn't have even malloc() or free().
Meanwhile Norwegian trolls created the C++ GUI library Qt. It simplifies memory management by deleting objects automatically when it thinks the objects are not needed.
A man called Phil Thompson was upset that a cool library like Qt doesn't exist in the excellent Python language. He combined them in the PyQt project. But it is not so easy to combine different memory management paradigms. Let's see what the pitfalls are.

"You know, when you have a program that does something really cool, and you wrote it from scratch, and it took a significant part of your life, you grow fond of it. When it's finished, it feels like some kind of amorphous sculpture that you've created. It has an abstract shape in your head that's completely independent of its actual purpose. Elegant, simple, beautiful.
Then, only a year later, after making dozens of pragmatic alterations to suit the people who use it, not only has your Venus-de-Milo lost both arms, she also has a giraffe's head sticking out of her chest and a cherubic penis that squirts colored water into a plastic bucket. The romance has become so painful that each day you struggle with an overwhelming urge to smash the fucking thing to pieces with a hammer."

Well, there were other factors in play there. htmlspecialchars was a
very early function. Back when PHP had less than 100 functions and the
function hashing mechanism was strlen(). In order to get a nice hash
distribution of function names across the various function name lengths
names were picked specifically to make them fit into a specific length
bucket. This was circa late 1994 when PHP was a tool just for my own
personal use and I wasn't too worried about not being able to remember
the few function names.

// At this point, I'd like to take a moment to speak to you about the Adobe PSD format.
// PSD is not a good format. PSD is not even a bad format. Calling it such would be an
// insult to other bad formats, such as PCX or JPEG. No, PSD is an abysmal format. Having
// worked on this code for several weeks now, my hate for PSD has grown to a raging fire
// that burns with the fierce passion of a million suns.
// If there are two different ways of doing something, PSD will do both, in different
// places. It will then make up three more ways no sane human would think of, and do those
// too. PSD makes inconsistency an art form. Why, for instance, did it suddenly decide
// that *these* particular chunks should be aligned to four bytes, and that this alignement
// should *not* be included in the size? Other chunks in other places are either unaligned,
// or aligned with the alignment included in the size. Here, though, it is not included.
// Either one of these three behaviours would be fine. A sane format would pick one. PSD,
// of course, uses all three, and more.
// Trying to get data out of a PSD file is like trying to find something in the attic of
// your eccentric old uncle who died in a freak freshwater shark attack on his 58th
// birthday. That last detail may not be important for the purposes of the simile, but
// at this point I am spending a lot of time imagining amusing fates for the people
// responsible for this Rube Goldberg of a file format.
// Earlier, I tried to get a hold of the latest specs for the PSD file format. To do this,
// I had to apply to them for permission to apply to them to have them consider sending
// me this sacred tome. This would have involved faxing them a copy of some document or
// other, probably signed in blood. I can only imagine that they make this process so
// difficult because they are intensely ashamed of having created this abomination. I
// was naturally not gullible enough to go through with this procedure, but if I had done
// so, I would have printed out every single page of the spec, and set them all on fire.
// Were it within my power, I would gather every single copy of those specs, and launch
// them on a spaceship directly into the sun.
// PSD is not my favourite file format.

Told by Gerald Weinberg in various incarnations:

A group of ten top software engineers is sent to a class for aspiring managers. The teacher walks in and asks this question:

"You work for a software company which develops avionics (software that controls the instruments of an airplane). One day you are taking a business trip. As you get on the plane you see a plaque that says this plane is using a beta of the software your team developed. Who would get off?"

Nine developers raised their hands. The teacher looked at the tenth and asked, "Why would you stay on?"

The tenth said, "if my team wrote the software, the plane would not get off the ground, much less crash."

The fantastic element that explains the appeal of video games to many developers is neither the fire-breathing monsters nor the milky-skinned, semi-clad sirens; it is the experience of carrying out a task from start to finish without any change in the user requirements.

<Skywolf> Say you have crucial, business data, that absolutely has to be safe.
<Skywolf> So you do the right thing, and invest in a RAID6 system with double parity.
<Skywolf> Which works great. So great that you don't even notice when the first hard drive fails.
<Skywolf> And not even when the second hard drive fails.
<Skywolf> Unfortunately you do notice when the third hard disk fails.

A 2GB ram is used on 32 bit operating systems. 4GB on 64 bit and 8 GB on 86 bit machines.
64x and 86x bit machines are better than 32 bits. They'll perform quicker etc.
