comment ActiveX under Linux
@RyanGates It's not dead, the site is just broken. I assume that it will be fixed by the author.

comment Backed up over wrong hard drive
There's practically no chance you will be able to recover that data. Take this as a learning experience, don't expend too much energy trying to do the impossible.

comment Collapse some repeated parts of successive lines
The output is slightly different than the one in the question, when the next starting number is encountered, there shouldn't be an & at first.

comment Adding Postgres bins to PATH: should I `export`?
@Gilles The question is "should I", not "do I have to". I take "should I" to mean "does it decrease the likelihood of something unexpected happening", not "is it typically necessary". I would support closing as a duplicate, yes.

comment Adding Postgres bins to PATH: should I `export`?
@Gilles That's what I said in the parenthesized sentence. Did I say something in this answer that you think contradicts that? I can't see anywhere I suggested otherwise, unless you're referring to my advice to export it anyway, which is just to avoid missing the export in environments without a PATH to begin with.
