There are no rock-solid URLs ;) But luckily there is the internet archive wayback machine.

comment Skype window doesn't show on Debian 7.0 with Openbox
Sometimes these issues can be solved by running the program again, it might become visible (i.e. un-minimized) then... no idea if this works with Skype.

@bshacklett: I just stumbled upon dendrite, fitting into a related niche, could be interesting here.

@bshacklett W.r.t logs, I'd have a closer look at logstash. The store can be fed logs directly from Log4j, but the logstash agent can also monitor log files

@bshacklett you can examine any init script's (any shell script's actually) function by running it explicitly with bash -vx, ie. bash -vx /etc/init.d/script start.

comment How can I run a shell script as a daemon under Redhat?
Don't bother getting the usage of this right and go with daemon, there's a RPM package, too. Btw, there're many log monitoring tools out there (start here).

comment How can I run a shell script as a daemon under Redhat?
It's not wrong. /etc/init.d/functions defines a daemon function that expects its argument to daemonize itself, it only takes care of things like changing the user, setting ulimits, checking (not creating!) a pidfile... The best usage of this daemon function is to replace it with libslack's daemon ;)

Maybe some udev event has to be triggered, you could try to do this with udevadm

comment not able to mount burned ISO9660 file-system before ejecting and re-inserting the media
Something seems to auto-mount the image for you... as you did not actually mount it after you re-insert the tray... Btw, maybe mount -o loop /path/of/ubcd521.iso /mnt saves you the burning by just mounting the ISO file

comment Does Chrome run on Debian kFreeBSD?
a) What makes you think Chromium doesn't do Flash? (See this recent issue on getting it to work) b) Please don't cross post‌​, trust in the moderators to move your post if it's not in the SE site best suited for your question. c) Anyway, Debian's chromium package is not available for kFreeBSD but Chromium seems to run on FreeBSD.
