Which Filesystem Do You Use On Portable Media For Linux Systems?

Phillup ext2 (569 comments)

Because if it gets put in a Mac or Windows machine... that means I don't have the disk.

And, it will most likely look "empty" and get formatted.

Which is exactly what I want to happen when I lose that puppy!

Why Size Matters For Your SSD Purchase

Phillup Re:Multi-Page = Horrible (175 comments)

Or how does your NoScript block text ads?

Well, either I'm lucky... or the ads are pulled in by javascript.

I just pulled the page again to double check, and I don't see any ads.

Which is pretty much what I always get unless the ad is a part of the html from the page I pull... because there is nothing else allowed.

Looking at the page source I see something from Google AdSense, among others... but they are all on my black list.

There are adds on those pages?

NoScript for the win!
