Why you should have more than enough disk space

Disk space matters.

About 2 minutes read.

Disk Space matters.  Whether you have an HDD,SSD, an SD Card, or some other form of storage, disk space always matters.  For windows 10, the recommended minimum amount of disk space is about 75GB, because of windows' size (usually 32gb - 40gb), and because you need more space for Windows Updates, 3rd party software, and more.  This doesn't just apply to windows, it applies to macOS, Android, iOS, Ubuntu Desktop, CentOS, Ubuntu Server, and almost every other OS, no matter if its a mobile device, a dedicated server in a datacenter, your work PC, or even your regular home PC.  We recommend that a standard PC that you plan to install other software on should have around 200GB of disk space.  If you do not have enough disk space, (lets say you have windows 10, and windows 10 itself is 32gb and you only have 40gb), and a system update occurs, it could be larger than your disk space capacity, and it could fill up your disk causing your system to crash.  All it takes is one half written system file, and your system might never be able to start up again.  If you manage to start up your system with a disk which is completely filled, you will not be able to start any software, including your browser.  If you are running low on disk space on your windows machine, you can use the Disk Cleanup tool.  Screenshots of it are below:

Starship SN10 Aborts at T - 0 Seconds for its 10km test flight.

  Moments ago, Starship SN10 attempted a flight to 10km, to then orient itself into a unique horizontal bellyflop position, flip itself upright after it has descended to about 1km, deploy the landing legs, and touch down on the landing pad softly. This vehicle, Starship Number 10, uses Liquid CH4 (methane) and Liquid Oxygen aka LOX/LO2, used by its 3 powerful Raptor engines.  Today, SpaceX started their official stream for the Starship SN10 Flight. SpaceX have privated the stream replay, so we cannot replay it. In case you want the link: The vehicle began fueling up with Methane and LOX, and then shortly after, it started the engine chill process, which is the process of chilling the engines down in preparation for engine ignition, so the engine material does not crack or get damaged from sudden shock. The vehicle attempted to start up its 3 Raptor engines, by opening the fuel & oxidizer valves, starting up the turbopumps, sho

What is “the best” programming language?

Programming languages, there are so many of them. Some programming languages are way easier to learn than other ones. But which programming language, is “the best” programming language? This question, it is not really answerable. There is no “best programming languages”, they are all meant for different things, well, MOST of them. If I were to compare 2 different programming languages, meant for very similar things, like Batch and Bash, I would say Batch is easier, as its Syntax is not as confusing as Bash’s to the average person. Here is another example, C# is primarily used for computer applications, mostly on Windows, and HTML is a markup language, being used to make websites. I cannot compare C# (it is pronounced “See Sharp” if you didn’t know) because they are used for completely different things. It wouldn’t make sense to say, “C# is way better”, because what is it better at? Developing desktop applications? Sure! Then I can say HTML is better at making websites, it is not a logi

How do you know the universe was not created a few minutes ago?

       The universe is the giant area of space that we live in, which is observable. Anything past our universal border is not in our universe. People do say the universe is constantly expanding, but there is no proof of that, as the "imaginary" or, maybe not imaginary border at the "end" of our universe. But, how do you know that the universe even exists? Were you even in it last week? Did last week even exist? Last week, the universe could have been created, and you do not have proof against it. All of your knowledge and memory could have easily popped into existence a few seconds ago, tricking you into thinking you have existed for longer than you think. This is likely, but also unlikely, it is a 50/50 chance. A reason that this is unlikely is, there are a lot of things that do not make sense in our universe. Like, why does matter attract matter, resulting in gravity? This exists in our universe, but can it exist in a different universe? Not really, or most likel
