comment How to quote arguments with xargs
@Gilles Correct. In bash I generally quote the string to pass it unmolested. So by quoting what I meant was to send filename as a single argument to rm instead of being split up into $0 and $1 etc.

This solves the problem but actually quoting the arguments would be useful in other cases. So I'll hold on for other answers. +1 for a simple solution though.

comment How to add color to my command prompt?
@jasonwryan I don't think its a duplicate. That is a more generic question. I already know how to do color customization but am getting strange output. A debugging question, if you will.

As the admin should I be logging into the accounts of every user to see bounced emails? How do I get them redirected to my account?

That answers my first question. Second was - How do I see a list of such mails? Is it possible to configure postfix to direct all such mails to a given account?

What destination server? This is local email, from one unix account to another.

comment What does sudo su work but su does not?
Isn't that a security loophole? Since any user in sudoers list can elevate to root what is the purpose of having a su account with scrambled password? Why doesn't setup just put the same password for su and kshitiz?

comment How to run linux on PS3?
Yeah. As it turns out a GPU of equivalent price as a PS3 can offer 1400 processing cores at 900MHz each. So PS cluster seems to be a thing of the past.

@SlimJim As it turns out CUDA is a much better option and could even give more bang for bucks. You should make that into an answer.
