Aha! Get it. Well, most important, it is documented.

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.

comment Round/truncate digit in string in zsh (or with external tool)
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? :)

comment Lightweight Debian based distro?
How can Debian not be an option, when a minimized Debian is? A desktop environment - what is that, like GNOME? In that case, you could have that on Debian for sure - but perhaps you should not, on an old system? Those are the bloodsuckers if there ever were any. To play games, it is much better to get a dual boot and have Windows for that, if games are that important. As for Linux, the best solution is to install Debian and then remove everything you don't want. That way, not only will you get what you want, you will also learn a lot in the process.
