comment ssh with for loop - parentheses problem
I don't know about your specific versions, but my bash would execute ssh $HOST and then wait for ssh to terminate before continuing with the for loop ...

comment How to change run-level for a session? (from graphics to command-line only)
It depends on your installed distribution and its version. Generally you don't set runlevels for individual sessions, but for the entire OS. Today's Linuxes will always start a GUI in rulevels 2-5. Still, if you don't log in at the GUI and switch to a TTY (Ctrl + Alt + Fn) right away, the additional load on the battery shouldn't be too bad anymore

comment Automatic kernel configuration tool
@ProBackup: I never said it gives optimal build options, I said its a framework for optimizing build options. Just because it lets you set options explicitly which are set for you (or even not available at all) when building a kernel natively.

comment When is it important to write portable scripts?
@toxalot: yes that could work. if you put something like FIND=/opt/gnu/dispicable/bin/find at the beginning of your script and then use ${FIND} instead of find in your script you give people one (!) place to put their install paths and make your script use the correct tools.

comment When is it important to write portable scripts?
@toxalot: Binaries and scripts are called explicitly by using absolute paths.

comment When is it important to write portable scripts?
There is also a meta aspect in this question: While it may not help the initial answering of the question, comments like "this is not portable" can be very helpful for other readers stumbling accross the question/answer months or years later.

comment Why does dig take much longer than DNS query time?
Ubuntu has been shipping dnsmasq and uses it by default, which already gives you a caching name server. I don't think there is anything to be gained by adding another one.
