That would be my argument; if I'm clearly armed and prepared to fire, I have no real choice but to assume that the person still approaching/threatening me is either completely, dangerously irrational or has some plan not yet fully known to me for dealing with their potential victim being armed.

Cool story bro.

This shooting is a total *expletive deleted*it sandwich. If you cannot clearly articulate to yourself a lethal threat, probably best not to touch the gun.  Everything about this article screams road rage.

Macrium is a good one. What CPU is in that Thinkpad? You should see a pretty good difference between the ssd  and a spinner, even on a sata 2 port. You may be limited by the processor, I see a pretty significant difference in data speeds when I'm overclocked vs stock speed. Make sure you disable defragmenting on a schedule.

I suddenly have an urge to learn some Big Bad Voodoo Daddy songs.

Linux Mint. The MATE desktop is probably the best for a new user, XFCE is better if your
computer is old.

Good thing it wasn't one of these overpowered umbrellas.

What's not a large hard drive?  300GB should be plenty for a pretty complete Xubuntu installation with lots of random software.  If it's less than 200GB, I think I'd go grab something off eBay cheap to stuff in there.

After all, go big enough and you've got a really full-featured NAS.

I'm going to second Mint. About six months back I tried out most of the major distros, and in my opinion Mint is by far the best one for an end-user. It's easy to use, and has a better software manager and updater than pretty much anything else. Also, since it's downstream from Debian and Ubuntu, it has a massive amount of software available for it, one way or the other.

I prefer the Mate edition for older hardware, as it doesn't use much in the way of system resources. I've got a 9 year old laptop with 2 GB of RAM and a dual-core Athlon X2 that has Linux Mint Mate installed on it, and it runs just fine for general web browsing.
