comment Understand “ibase” and “obase” in case of conversions with bc?
@Random832: Sure, but that doesn't mean you can tack random numbers from POSIX specs onto the "SUS" string and get a sensible result. :) There is no such thing as SUSv6.

@Random832: SUS and POSIX aren't the same thing.

comment Can't read 2TB Hard Disk , don't exist dispositive
Shortly after you plug that drive in on a Linux box, a dmesg command should tell you which /dev node it is available under. It may well not be /dev/sdb, as you are assuming. But, the fact that neither Windows nor OS X can see it, either tells me that something is wrong. It could be the drive, the enclosure, the cable, or the USB port, if these three OSes are all on the same hardware. If you're using separate Linux, OS X and Windows boxes, it can't be the USB port, but it could still be any of the other three pieces.
