    Does Hyper-V Dynamic Memory work with Linux?

    There is a Hyper-V Integration Services for Linux you can download from Microsoft, or it comes with some newer versions of Linux, that you can install on the Linux guest. This should do it, but if there are specific problems I wouldn't know.

    MySQL Assistance

    I also don't use MySQL much... It is possible that MySQL did not release the free disk space you created, but will use it for new data. This is what SQL Server would do - the database file size doesn't decrease even if you delete a huge table. If this is the case, you want to google...

    Interesting Story: FedEx and my new Samsung Galaxy Note 3

    FedEx delivered the box to the wrong house. That person notified Fed Ex to return it to you. I don't see any foul-play here, but anything is possible.

    Keyless door locks
