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.

comment How to remove a USB drive without worrying if its been unmounted?
I concur. I also like my answer because it made me think about the design of thumbdrives and how the intentionally cheap USB connector wound up with a completely unanticipated consequence ("What's a thumbdrive?" would have been a utterly valid question in 1995).

comment Communication with MX records
+1 with minor nit: the number associated with an MX entry is a preference not a "cost" where lower numbers have higher preference (so it kinda looks like a cost).

comment How can I recover suspended processes after restarting X?
Given the way xlib works (the actual connection from X client to server) it has historically not had any provisions for reconnection to a new server. Someone may have come up with a mechanism, but since the X connection is stateful, I doubt it.

Oh, we's gots block groups, flexible block groups, meta block groups, and probably even twerk block groups for all I know.

comment How to run script using SSH from remote computer and avoid its interruption if remote computer goes offline
+1 And a month or so back I didn't know tmux existed, but after playing with it for a little, seems a bit more usable than the venerable screen.

comment Adding a self-signed certificate to the “trusted list”
All the TLS should be vectored through OpenSSL, so that's the place to look for documentation. In this case: gagravarr.org/writing/openssl-certs/… looks useful.
