I ended up going with this, it looks nice, has some degree of ttrss, firefox and android integration, and full text searchability.

comment How to Open a website with heavy traffic
A proxy in another country might help - my cousin got me to check her results. And good luck for your exams! And don't reload constantly! That won't help with the traffic at all.

comment How can I pin/unpin a specific kernel version/package in fedora 21?
Yes I can - and I'm picking the oldest kernel I have of three. I don't want to be in a situation where I don't have ANY usable kernels. I want to ensure the known good kernel version dosen't get accidentally wiped, since fedora seems to keep only the last 3 and the latest 2 don't work. Clarified the question somewhat.

comment Old posts and answers need protection?
However acceptability changes. Sometimes a user might choose not to change his answer for reasons, even if someone's made it clear its not quite right. Considering we bump up old questions with no answers, when a question or answer was posted seems less important to me than its utility

or downvoted cause someone with an XP system tried it, and it didn't work, or it was a single line, or a link only answer. Preventing people from voting on old question feels like a significant restriction on the ability to vote. It also means that if someone posted a crappy answer in the past, they're essentially immune to the consequences of a downvote. This feels like a pretty heavy handed way of dealing with it.

comment Is SuperUser for IBM/PC only?
I'd also add, there's a site specifically for apple gear where this would be on topic. Tablets are a bit of a wierd place for us, historically.
