@jordanm How would that work? You should put that into an answer.

comment Backup and synchronization
Should the backup encompass also deleted files? I.e. you want to be able to recover files that you deleted?

comment Run unix command precisely at very short intervals WITHOUT accumulating time lag over time
Hmm, the procps source package does not support --precise. This is a Debian addition (3.2.8-9, watch_precision_time.patch)

Its version 0.3.0, which is the current version on Ubuntu 12.04. It comes from version 3.2.8-11ubuntu6 of the procps package.

comment First and last day of a month
The +"format string" parameter to date will also be helpful here, e.g. date -d "01/07/2012 + 1 month - 1 day" +"%d"

+1. Using "xterm" instead of "rxvt" and "rxvt-unicode", Shift-PgUp/-PgDown work for me on gnome-terminal. But the mousewheel scrolls in the shell history.

How are the devices accessed from the OS? E.g. are they PCI cards?

comment How to list sample of files from a directory
@invert actually, sorting a list of hundred thousands of files is probably not such a good idea. Maybe use ls -f| tail -n 1000 instead of just ls for the answer in the link
