comment How to correctly apply thermal compound to the CPU?
for AMD 64 X2's they recommend a grain of rice, then put the heat-sink down and let it do all of the work, before fastening twist it left and right to get an even distribution. Worked great for my file server.

2W is the peak output, this is generally only used to find and identify with a base station, from there the power is modulated so that the phone can stay connected but still have good battery life. Generally a phone is connected at about 500 mW. That being said, Amateur radio guys, myself included, generally will push out 5W over small hand held HAM radio devices to be able to reach repeaters and or other people, and we hold that up to our face to speak into a microphone :P

comment Biggest command-line mistake?
I would like to point out, re-reading my sentence it sounds like I was the reason for changing the way rm worked, this is not the case. Apparently people were using rm in scripts and the same thing happened and they wanted to add a fail-safe.

comment Historical Question: Why does slice C or slice 2 cover the entire disk
It helps, but is still not the concrete answer I was looking for :-) I already knew possible reasons as to why, and the default slice layout. I would like solid evidence or proof!

comment Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
It is not just traditional, it is the default. The toor user is created on every single install so that if the user screws up the root account toor is still available. That being said, most people never set a password for the toor user account!
