Most everything has gone downhill since then, with many sites today even refusing to let you resize text and photos (the formatting gets messed up if you try).
Actually, with "responsive design" being all the rage nowadays (Google has started to downrank sites in mobile search that aren't responsive, AFAIK Bing does/will do the same), that is getting less true every day. Now, that doesn't mean responsive design is a magical answer to everything; too often tablet size and/or landscape mode is neglected, and no matter how careful one is, there might be breakage with a combination of browser X and resolution Y. But we're getting there.
Not any kind of debt, but only the part that was fradulently imposed on Greece (Goldman Sach bonds, military over-expending and other fraudulent contracts).
You are saying this as if these were somehow imposed upon the Greek. There were other players, sure, but it takes two to tango.
I think that 2TB is currently the largest 2.5" drive. The system apparently supports up to 6TB, and I guess some people have done it with cable extensions to 3.5" drives, or something.
There's at least one semi-external enclosure, that replaces the HDD cover with a slightly taller version that one can fit a 3.5" drive in. But according to reviews, it seems to perform worse than the stock drive (at least with a 3TB drive), so I'm not sure that's advisable - games probably assume that the HDD works at least as fast as the stock one.
Arch, at least.
There's very little good reason to use 'discard' on Linux
Care to elaborate on that? My bible says that discard is the first choice, fstrim when that isn't applicable for whatever reason. Bear in mind that I use Linux mostly as a desktop OS, so whatever caveats there may be in server use do not affect me.
