comment Purpose and typical usage of /etc/rc.local
I don't know if this is the "official" purpose of the file, but I found out that I can use the file for what should happen on startup, and would require super user access, but without having to provide the password. That would typically involve colors, the keyboard, and other such stuff. Check out some examples here.

For any potential future users of this great hack/tool: multiplication isn't implicit on parenthesis, and, instead of ^, use **. When you know that, I guess it is not really a big thing, but if Mr. Chazelas finds joy in perfecting his creation, that would be a way to make it even more intuitive. For example, then you could get the utilization bound for 14 multi-CPUs with calc 14(2^(1/14) - 1). Am I disturbed, or wouldn't that be so cool? :)
