comment Is there any size limit for the compress command?
text compresses really nicely for instance, however, many data files and executables generally do not.

I have found that sometimes the commands are now a little smarter about this and may not do the compress. I would be surprised if you did not get some type of warning or error message indicating this fact.

Use appropriate options to the PS command. See the man page for more on your particular distribution.

comment How to restart my java program automatically if it gets killed?
ok...what about the PPID? What I am looking for is the fact that perhaps you have multiple instances because the parent is spinning off forks of itself which sometimes manifests itself like this.

comment Not able to connect to my Ubuntu SSH Server even after port forwarding on router
Are you sure your WiFi router setup allows this? What about system firewall on the Ubuntu system? What about any firewall on the Windows system? Are both ipv4 and ipv6 allowed on all components (Ubuntu, Windows, Wifi Router)?

I'd be interested in seeing a ps indicating the PID as well as the PPID.

A guess, your DHCP service is not working and/or is having problems with IPv6.

comment External hard drive can't be mounted on linux(windows says: Format it)
Hmmm....I've seen this question before. As I suggested in the previous post, connect this disk to a windows machine and try to run a chkdsk /x /f x:. Prior to that make a disk image backup. Repairing a broken NTFS disk on a Linux system is not really the way to work.
