comment Is the sentence “We're done” grammatically correct?
We've done is the indicative past perfect of We do. Used in this way it must be transitive, so you can say, We've done it!, which indicates you achieved something more extraordinary than making it all the way through a single lecture. Anyway, We did it! is more common than We've done it!. Save it for when you graduate.

comment Alternative term to “Blacklist” and “Whitelist”
I agree! I think it darkens the language when people try to discolor it with their hue-bris.

comment “How are you” in America
When folks say I'm fine I assume they're commenting on how sexy they are.

comment What do you call a disk drive that is not solid state?
@Zoredache I would've liked to mark your comment as the correct answer. It is succinct, technically correct, and clear enough that anyone with whom I might end up needing to make the distinction between a solid-state drive and a Winchester drive would either already know it, or chuckle and immediately look it up.

The cat that is of me finds this all very confusing.

comment What do you call a disk drive that is not solid state?
I'm still surprised. I could see how a solid-state drive needn't have a disk, but it is just as, if not more, deserving of the term hard as its moving-parts cousin. Do you have a reference?
