comment TinyMCE editor is breaking my beautiful HTML
Bryan, that's a good idea, but I still need the entire <figure> to be clickable, so I'm back to wrapping it in an <a> tag (or using multiple <a> tags which I would rather not do).

comment TinyMCE editor is breaking my beautiful HTML
Just to close this out. I wound up using <span> tags. I hate that my markup is now white-space dependent, but it was the path of least resistance for now. I tried <figcaption> but it's a block level element, and TinyMCE wouldn't allow the <a> tags to wrap it, so I was back at square one. Thanks again for all the ideas.

That's an interesting thought. I hadn't considered marking it up as a figure and caption. I'll give that a try.

If you only need to target modern browsers, you could look into calc(). That would allow you to set the width of each item to 25% - 1pt for a border. Then you could use a negative margin to collapse the inner borders.

Thanks for catching that typo in my example HTML (I edited the question). Just to be clear, the real HTML in question does not have that issue. I will checkout the plugin you mentioned.

comment WP function/filter for modifying http headers?
I think you might be misunderstanding what the send_headers() function is doing in the Last-Modified bit. All that code block does is determine whether the Last-Modified header should be removed, and if so it removes it. If full page caching is being used, the function will never run and neither hook will do anything. I guess it doesn't really matter in the end though. Both hooks will allow you to set a header. It's like Milo commented on your linked question, one's a filter, one's an action. It's just a matter of how you like to code.

comment WP function/filter for modifying http headers?
@Bryan, that's an interesting explanation. I'm curious though: if a page is statically cached and it's served before wp_headers runs, how could send_headers work if it runs after wp_headers? Wouldn't execution of the entire send_headers() function, along with the rest of WordPress, be skipped?

comment Diagnose sound of damaged hard drive
That's what I was afraid of. I was reading the guide here that said: "The HDD can't spin. You can't hear any noise or just hear a tick sound, which means the PCB is probably faulty." So, if the sound indicates that it's not the PCB, and the BIOS indicates that it's a hardware issue, I'm probably out of my depth.

comment Diagnose sound of damaged hard drive
Thanks again. I did try ddrescue, but it finished immediately and wrote nothing to the output file. I've never used it before, so it's possible I did something wrong. Determining which device to point it at was the hardest thing for me. Based on the dmesg output it looked like /dev/sdk, but it's possible I picked the wrong one. Any suggestions on finding the right device?

Thanks for the suggestion. I was not able to read any SMART data using a few other tools because they did not even recognize the disk (I can't get it to mount on any OS). I haven't tried Speedfan though. I will give it a try later.

Keep in mind though that the WordPress team is trying to transition away from the codex towards the new code reference
