comment How can I pipe stdout to another program?
You're already piping to another program when you git diff | grep. Do you mean passing the previous command's output as arguments, as with xargs or $(...)?

revised GIF screencasting; the UNIX way
Demonstrate an improved method. Reasons: FFmpeg is pretty amazing, but it's bad at gif encoding. Recording first to AVI, then converting and optimising with IM has given me higher-quality images with smaller file sizes. Win-win.

comment How to properly lock desktop when hibernating?
I don't use xscreensaver anymore, but I remember its manual has a part called "restart xscreensaver when someone logs in", which suggests doing xscreensaver-command -exit; xscreensaver & on login. Maybe you could do that on wake-up to reset its state?

comment clamd randomly stops
You say you checked the logs. What did they say? (Why did you conclude that they seem fine?) What do you mean by "stops running"? (Does the process die or does it stop responding?)

@Barmar But then the client (local machine) won't know about changes. I edited to add a bit about that.
