comment Cleanest way to use a smartphone as a conventional linux workstation
If you are doing this as a hobbyist adventure, rock on. If you are looking for the functions and much less hassle, find a cast-off notebook pc and pretend it is just a very big phone.

comment OSX: dd quits after a few minutes
If a drive is making "funny noises" it's probably already dead. I assume that you are just trying to confirm this fact. I'd caution you slightly against playing with broken drives as they can cause excess power draw which can damage upstream components like your drive controller which may be much harder to replace.

comment Setup linux cluster like Windows with CentOS or Ubuntu?
Here's a recent 200 page primer about how to cluster with RHEL 6, but the concepts are broadly applicable.

comment Setup linux cluster like Windows with CentOS or Ubuntu?
Of course it is possible, even easy depending on what you want to do. Unfortunately, your linked MSDN article only mentions the two broad concepts and you have to drill down through dozens of pages to see how to cluster the most basic services. This question is unanswerable without considerable additional detail.

comment Does segfaults mean bad memory
In case you didn't know, "bad memory" (and this sure looks like it) is often "memory that's come loose from its socket". Do the memtest and if that fails, try removing and re-seating the RAM first; 'tis a bit less expensive than replacing it.

comment Does segfaults mean bad memory
If a program is running while a kernel is resident, it cannot check the locations the kernel lives in. If you suspect hardware memory errors, no memory should be trusted (or, all memory must be tested). Memory tests on a live system cannot do the whole jobe.

comment Upstart reload does not work
Good puzzle. Since reload sends a SIGHUP to the named job, I'd suspect that the pid file as defined in the upstart job is not set correctly. Of course this guess is confounded by stop command working properly. So I'd dig through the system logs for /var/log mentions of my_app and add relevant entries to your question.

Upvoting based on amusement value is probably contrary to SE intentions, but I do intend to cite your Maxim 37 in the future.

Almost any editor worth using that has dictionary support should allow you to specify multiple dictionaries. What editor are you using and have you checked its documentation?

comment Not able to do password-free access to remote machine!
What distribution are you using? Almost no one ships a real rlogin by default any longer because it is horribly insecure. OpenSSH sometimes provides an alias for ssh called rlogin which never even looks at .rhosts because that's part of the horrible insecurity. See the answer by @maxschlepzig for how to remote shell properly. If you have the option of installing an old-fashioned RFC1282 rlogind, don't, It's a Bad Idea.
