I'm just an average person, that uniquely combines strict, engineering mind with a non-schematic, humanistic and magical way of looking on life and surrounding world.

Add a little bit of madness, and you'll get entire picture of me! :]

I'm a developer, both desktop and mobile, with 15+ years of experience and 50+ small-to-big projects on account. In the very same time I'm a writer with similar experience and a lot of books, articles, blog posts or own blogs ideas on account.

OK. And what about "USB bridged cables" or "USB networking cables" like this, this or this? They seems to allow you to transfer files between two PCs. But, I'm not sure, if they not require a special driver and software and therefore does not allow one PC to act to anothers as pure USB external device, just like OP asked.

Yeap, that's the point and thanks for the explanation. So, to summarize our discussion: you are not aware of any solution, that would allow to connect PC to another device and act it as host, right?

comment Make a computer act as a virtual USB device for other equipments
Yes, but I'm refferring to your last sentence: "If you want to make a computer into a USB storage device, you can use a mobile phone or tablet with a USB connection". Maybe I'm missing something, but I understand it as "You can use mobile phone or tablet to turn computer into USB storage device". If so, then the question is: How?

Can you elaborate a bit more, how using a mobile phone could help me turning my PC into a USB storage device / host, that I could plug to another compter, TV or device? I think, I'm missing this point, though I think I have a fair knowledge about USB OTG.

comment Midnight Commander moves files enormously long
Thanks (+1). But, what you're saying, is -- of course -- obvious to me. But, I'm not sure, if we're talking about the same. No matter, whether I'm moving contents of a subfolder (share/Download/Subfolder/*.*) or just the entire subfolder (share/Download/Subfolder), I'm moving files, that are stored in the very same physical location. So -- in my opinion -- move process should have the same speed in both scenarios. It hasn't. So, either I'm missing something obvious about how mv works or something obvious from your answers.

comment FTP 550 error when trying to copy file
I found solution myself. It was problem with file owner. cd to directory containing "problematic" file (or any parent one) and execute chown -R trejder * to change the owner of file to my own. Apparently copying file there and back again did something similar. I can't put that answer here, because you put question "on hold". Still can't understand, how questions related to file owners and file rights are off-topic in this site, but OK. No, I haven't checked out that thread, because I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for all, anyway. Cheers.
