comment Is it Unix timestamp incremental?
But it isn't necessarily unique, if you could retry within the same second (unless you're using Python's fractional time, which is probably fine).

comment How can I enable mouse in Vim?
Assuming you're running VIM in a terminal (and not using the GUI by running gvim or vim -g), showing the result of echo $TERM might help.

comment Linux nuisance: /dev/stdin doesn't work with sockets
I think it's either that or write a wrapper to forward stdin through a pipe or fifo - that's no better than your cat| solution though.

comment Linux nuisance: /dev/stdin doesn't work with sockets
So this is specific to tools that don't take an argument like - to mean use stdin for input?

comment Linux nuisance: /dev/stdin doesn't work with sockets
So what's the error, and which systems does that command work on? And, how does cat /dev/stdin usefully differ from cat in the first place, which doesn't try to re-open stdin?

comment cp or mv files to same directory they are already in when I am in another?
Interesting, since it doesn't do what you asked for. Maybe your question isn't exactly what you intended?

This doesn't address the even_more relative path ...

comment new distros cause segmentation fault of old binary
Can you check the core file limit? (Or just run ulimit -c unlimited if you're using bash, and try again)

comment new distros cause segmentation fault of old binary
Well, the ABI is supposed to be stable and forward-compatible from 3.4, so it seems more likely either to be UB that used to work, or a library version. A core file should be able to clear it up.

comment new distros cause segmentation fault of old binary
If you're not compiling from source, surely you mean "glibc" rather than "gcc"? Anyway, what does the core file show?

comment Why using more threads makes it slower than using less threads
No-one is confused over which figure of speech you used, and it isn't a bad analogy. Every analogy has some limit beyond which it diverges from the thing it's supposed to describe and ceases to be useful. I only mentioned this because the original reminded me so strongly of a different scenario, and because I don't think this version any more complex for the (hopefully) improved predictiveness.
