comment Find service by network activity
It's a successful lookup then. What's so strange about it? You could introduce an artificial delay so that netstat works. Other than that you could watch for longer lasting connections to the answer of the strange request. Every tool has the timing problem and the pcap based tools apparently can't do what you want. Maybe the kernel has some on_socket_open notification, but I wouldn't know.

comment Find service by network activity
The DNS traffic you see is usually encapsulated in UDP, encapsulated in IP. In the IP header you will find a source address, which enables you to identify from which computer the traffic originates. In the UDP header you will find a source port which can be used on the originating computer to identify the originating process, for instance using netstat.

comment Difference between ssl/https and plain https in nmap output
is this reproducable? could you provide us the data traffic generated by nmap, i.e. the file /tmp/for_ul_se.pcap generated by tcpdump -i <your_wlan_interface_name> -s0 -w/tmp/for_ul_se.pcap port 443?

comment What's the exact behaviour of the command: ip address change?
And what is the effect of those flags? Because on the command line they don't really show. Especially as change works like add if the address to change does not exist yet. I didn't think I would have to dig through the kernel source (because that's where the flags are ultimately passed), in order to find out what one of the most popular command line tools for network management does. This isn't the 90s ... :-) But thanks anyways!

comment How to know when a job in screen finishes?
Yes, I saw your other post. It should work just as well as any other string you can stuff.

comment Zsh script cannot find screens
only guessing but it is possible you have race condition such that you stuff command is issued before the screen session has been initialised thus not visible. I'm also unsure about your stuff command because you provide some file name aftter >&. Even if it works, I think this still could be one line instead of 2 ...

Yes, I know that. I've just grown a little tired of having to do to things for one action.

@UVV no its not. I know how to supply the width for vertical splits and the height for horitonzal splits. I am asking for height for vertical splits.

comment Writing a Bash script to run and end at specific times
If your OS has something like a cron daemon. Have cron start your script at what ever interval you please and also have cron kill all running instances of your program at a slighly shifted interval.

comment how to detect what DISPLAY is active/has input focus?
I don't think such solutions exist, because there is no such thing as "input focus". Quite the contrary is the case. Multiseat setups seem very common for e.g. kiosk systems. Such decisions would always be heuristical approaches with a bunch of sources for errors. For instance, in your comment you talk about "the hardware keyboard", implying there is only one and it is read from by an X-Server. Both are assumptions that needn't be true. Then there are things like Xephyr and Xnest, which stack X-Servers into one another.

comment How to burn an iso while downloading it
@lgeorget: "burning" in the sense of "heating significantly beyond friction with the intention to store data" happens only with discs, not disks, and definetly not flash drives. Yet we still don't know if the OP wants the ISO written to the flash drive or a partition on the same ...

@Fiodor: I'll have to disagree, I'm afraid. The man page for wget states quite unambiguously in the section on the -O option "If - is used as file, documents will be printed to standard output"

@NatusVincere: Could you please elaborate on the process of burning onto USB flash disks? I am not familiar with this. What does it accomplish?
