comment Mutt: gmail archive
It may be difficult, as Gmail stores messages differently than it is implemented in IMAP. The messages are tagged with folder name on the Gmail server, but remote IMAP clients (like offlineimap) see the tags as directories...

comment Backed up over wrong hard drive
Obviously, this was meant to be just a brief notice, not a deep (and OT) analysis of backup tools ;) However, I cannot think of general use cases where cat /dev/sdX > /dev/sdY would not be better than df - the latter one is becoming a very specialized tool these days (e.g. zeroing boot sector comes to my mind).

comment How to redirect stdout to a file and read from the same file simultaneously with another task?
A side note - the file will have some content before it is closed for writing. The amount of text appearing in this file is dependent on the filesystem used and configuration parameters - e.g. for ext4 with default options it should be updated after every 4096 bytes written.

comment Bash one liner to change configuration parameters
@terdon, in the first version of the question all variables were in one line, separated by whitespaces. Also it is a good practice to limit the scope of regular expression to values that you expect to find - this way you can filter out some unexpected errors - e.g. when a text is logged instead of a number.

comment Setting up a 3 monitor display?
Yes, obviously at the time of writing this answer the most recent RandR version was 1.3. I haven't had hands-on experience with 1.4 yet.

@MichaelKjörling - yes, indeed :) So, using ZFS on SSD guarantees that a rotten bit won't pass unseen?
