I just tested my Google Pixel 8 Pro and sadly it does not (as of November 2nd 2023) support display out over USB-C. 🙁 👎 This is a bummer as I had hoped to use USB-C adapters/docks to output to HDMI for utilizing LCD TV’s for work while traveling.

Determine if TRIM is supported and enabled on an SSD!

Today I was installing a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD in a new server. Everything went smoothly, but I wanted to make sure that TRIM was actually working. This turned out to be slightly trickier than one might imagine! 😉 First Samsung’s SSD Magician Tool was of no use.
