I've had a career in GIS since 2006, but it's also a hobby where this site helps answer lots of those off-the-beaten-path questions I always come up with.

comment How do I play an HTTP music stream over SSH?
I don't even know what kind of music this is, but because I'm piping it, it's awesome! Thanks.

comment how much space to reserve on ext3 filesystem to prevent fragmentation issues?
@boehj Dang, I was trying to figure it out because I'm not sure if you need to change the size relative to the HD size; does a 1TB HD need more space than a 100GB HD/Partition or does it depend on the disk usage (storage, root fs, home, boot, etc...)

comment ssh-agent not starting in OpenSuSE desktop
I have this same issue on my KDE only machines. Other openSUSE machines running XFCE or GNOME have no issue and this service is automatically started, except for KDE. I would like to hear of your fix if you find one.

comment how much space to reserve on ext3 filesystem to prevent fragmentation issues?
@boehj Can you explain a little on how you decided on the amount of blocks reserved (20000) for root when the drive is primarily used for storage? Is that something that is relative to the size of the drive, amount of files, file sizes, etc?

comment How can I get my external IP address in bash?
Doesn't seem to work anymore via CLI, but going to the webpage from a web browser works. I'm using openSUSE 12.1 x64.

comment Will wget -k still convert links to relative paths if wget is stopped prematurely?
No, unfortunately you can't, but, if you want to cancel, go ahead, and when you rerun wget also add the -nc (no clobber) option. This will prevent files you've already downloaded from being downloaded again.

@kathryn lol. Like a genie, you get what you ask for. I've updated the answer to show how the -R (--reject) option could work.

comment File name in file system
nix file systems are usually case sensitive. So 'foo', 'Foo' and 'foO' are three different files/folders.
