Mind you, this only works on linux though.

Off-topic: what GUI application is that on those screenshots?

comment How to copy directories with preserving hardlinks?
It's not reasonable to assume he uses the same OS as you, and it's not common practice to install gnu base tools on non-gnu systems. As a minimum, you should always clarify this. Using truisms DECREASES portability; POSIX is way more standard.

Too hackish considering this can be configured in git.

+1 on tar, -1 for using gnu-specific arguments for cp.

comment What are the pros/cons of Upstart and systemd?
Two systemd disadvantages you missed: (1) all startup scripts need to be rewritten. (2) there's way less compatibility with non-linux OSs (like BSDs, for example).

To be honest, pulseaudio was a solution to a non-existant problem. There's nothing PA can do that ALSA can't, and I've heard PLENTY of people having issues with PA, over and over again.

Hadn't heard about it. Didn't find it after a quick google either. Great job :)

The other answer has the only way that I know of for restarting services on dd-wrt. Not too clean, but I don't know any other way.

There is no "sudo" on dd-wrt. There is not /etc/init.d on dd-wrt, nor any equivalent.

comment Tips for putting ~ under source control
Wow, you certainly are a negromancer; My post was about 18 months ago. I've long moved to git for $HOME. I do, however, use a centralized repository, both for offsiteness, and for pushing when the other PC is off (so it can pull later from there).

comment What is a distro-agnostic way determine the OS install date?
Expecting users to use ext{2,3,4} is as distro-agnostic as expecting "/etc" to exist. I even think "/etc" is more likely to exists.

comment How to run Dropbox daemon in background?
Have you tried the python script linked below on that same website? It seems to be targeted to controlling the daemon. (I don't have access to a debian-based machine ATM to try it myself though).

comment How to invoke root privileges from a password prompt of “Software Update” window?
Are you sure? I used fedora from when version 12 was release up to version 15 (so it's been a couple of years now). I recall "yum" works that way, but I only used the GUI once. Does the GUI work differently from yum?
