comment Disable sticky keys
I've been thinking about this, and I can't come up with anything definitive. The problem is that, when it happens, you can't do anything to test it. Even mouse clicking is confused. It would need to be something that was running all the time, visible on screen, or writing to a log, just in case. Perhaps some key logging software (the kind people use to spy on others) might be useful?

comment debootstrap terminates partway through with “stdin: not in compressed format”
I've found that Arch's default PATH definition doesn't work for Debian. Apparently debootstrap inherits that variable and expects it to have the right things. It might be unrelated, but you could try adding all the usual /bin and /sbin variants that Arch doesn't use.

comment Installing Arch Linux on empty eee pc's hard drive
On my (not eee) machine I have to press a key at boot time to access the boot menu that will check the USB drive. Your's might do too, or it might only boot from a specific USB socket.

comment Extract download progress from curl output
I had thought that curl might not output progress bars to file, but it appears it does. @terdon, don't confuse stderr with "screen". Just because isatty(2) is often true, it doesn't mean they're the same thing.

comment Fastest & Most Core way to replace “\r\n” with “\n” in a file?
These two are not identical. The first with replace '\r\n' with '\n' (effectively), but the second will remove all '\r' wherever they appear. It's uncommon for carriage-return to appear in a text file, other than at the end of the line, but it can happen.

It didn't power the PC, or it didn't power the USB drive?

comment Installing linux-3.14.8 un Arch Linux while 3.15 is already in testing
FYI, if you had used makepkg -s, it would have installed the dependencies for you. If you had used makepkg -i then it would have done the install for you. And, if you have 4 CPUs (say) then MAKEFLAGS=-j4 makepkg will give you less relaxation time. :-)

comment USB error -110 (power exceeded) but works when reconnecting
Did you use any of the USB auto-suspend features for power-saving? Not that this is something you can do accidentally, on Arch. I tried that, and my mouse wouldn't wake up until I clicked the button.
