comment Will there be always a pair of same UID and GID?
In the second example, were you looking for id -g username?

comment What does exec 3<&1 do?
@orion: Internally, the same dup2() syscall is used for any kind of file descriptor; bash's x>&y vs x<&y is just syntax sugar. Also, when stdio is attached to a tty, the tty device is very often opened for read+write and just duplicated from 0 to 1 and 2.

comment What is the name of the formatting output from man?
@jcubic: Not everything in the world has a name. It might easily have been "that odd thing some terminals do".

revised Starting NetworkManager before gdm.service with systemd
Unit files should always have the canonical names. I'm not sure if omitting the type even works.

comment Mutt and maildir format
@MartinVegter: You do need it, because it is part of the format. It is not something arbitrary that mutt does. You could try mh as a somewhat simpler format. (By the way, the usual convention for Maildir+ subfolders is ~/Mail/.foo.bar.baz – the "filesystem" layout, ~/Mail/foo/bar/baz, is less common.)

comment Why can't gnutls contact this site?
@dotancohen: (The protocol extension for this is "Server Name Indication". It's fairly new, however, and many older SSL servers simply put all vhost names into a single certificate, or only host one site per IP address.)

comment Why can't gnutls contact this site?
@dotancohen: 1) You must understand that gnutls-cli is only a TLS (SSL) client – it doesn't care at all about higher-level protocols such as HTTP. 2) However, at TLS level, if you give gnutls-cli a hostname, it sends that hostname to the server, the same way as browsers do – and that's sufficient for the server to pick the right certificate.
