I enjoy making software and applying technology to help myself and friends and family achieve things as well as earning a living doing it.

My creative aspirations cross over into other disciplines including radio where I make programmes myself and with others for several local and community stations, in professional capacity as well as voluntary.

comment Is it possible to check if a BIOS supports password entry for a self-encrypting SSD/harddrive?
I'm not using a drive in SED configuration, but I have bought a Samsung 840SSD Pro for the sole purpose of improving performance of the machine and that it does very nicely. It can be securely wiped very quickly as it uses encryption for that. But I haven't linked that self-encryption to a password prompt on boot-up such that the password would decrypt the entire drive. I don't know if this is possible.

+1 x 2 @Mołot supporting my point about it being a doc bug and the composer comment. I'll try to come back here with answers myself too. Thanks.

comment after installing drush with composer, "command not found" when issue drush command (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS)
@shrish 3 questions for you: please 1) explain what this does. As you can see from my question, I already have composer installed, so 2) why would I want to issue sudo composer install ? And 3) where would my Drush installation be located (I've already asked about this in previous comments). Thanks in advance...

thanks Clive, can you advise where I would find drush to link with this symlink? I would still say it is a bug - but a bug in the documentation: this should be included in the instructions at github.com/drush-ops/drush A user should be able to go this step by step without any missing steps or assumption about what the user knows.

comment Views: Get total results
I think you mean Global: Result summary not "Global: results" in list of things offered in Footer. So, in the View edit screen, select 'Add Footer' (middle column of the settings) then choose Global: Result summary And then choose from the various @ prefixed variables regarding what you'd like to display.

comment Is over-provisioning of an SSD possible with dual-boot?
Yes it is. run the overprovisioning first then use a partition manager to divide up the space you need for the 2 OSs, being sure to keep the unpartitioned space intact. I'll post this as answer shortly.

comment Install Skype on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit
I should add that I couldn't do step 1 of Dave's steps sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 - I got: dpkg: error: unknown option --add-architecture but I was able proceed with all other steps from Dave (having done all but last step ( sudo apt-get install skype - package skype not found in ubuntu )of Robi's answer). Though I don't necessarily think that Robi's answer is a pre-requisite of Dave's - that wasn't what was intended I'm just trying to help by giving the exact steps that worked specifically for me.

+1 upvote - I found this to work (64bit 12.04 Ubuntu - I tried Robi's answer first (and apt-get install skype have me package not found so I then did this answer from Dave ). So my steps are actuall a combination of Robi's and Dave's answers.

comment Drupal 7 sites.php setup
Shouldn't that be: $sites['domain.com.site1'] = 'site1'; (not default) $sites['domain.com.site2'] = 'site2'; ?

comment How can I concatenate two fields in a view?
+1 upvote question and this answer - great stuff - I found this works, too. And if you want the resultant field to be linkable, you can use the Content: Path and use this as a token in the Global: text field's rewrite settings.
