comment Why is this random password is too simplistic/systematic?
@waxwing this has improved by about 50% now. Good work. BTW it was just a suggestion, not to be understood as a downright criticism.

comment Why is this random password is too simplistic/systematic?
Somewhat funny to talk about "smaller" and "larger" in respect to characters, no? Well, though I know it's about ASCII values it may not be too obvious. -- So why not explain it a more simplistic way? No character must be followed by its direct neighbor nor predecessor. Hence neither "ab" nor "ba" is permitted, but "ac" or "ca" would since the b is omitted.

comment Wget out of memory error kills process
Wow, great solution! Even I have learned something new: that I can use -F option in awk with a whole expression and not just a single character. BTW the reason why I assumed I couldn't do that is the following: cut in comparison will indeed only allow you exactly one character as delimiter (which is a similar effect that -F has in awk)

comment Mounting an ext3 fs with user privledges
Thank you from me as well! With a little tweak, this also works for devices like e. g. hot-plugged SATA DVD-ROMs (which was the device I had problems with). HOWEVER, the device will always be mounted 000 for some reason (d---------) so you have to specify -p 700 to the bindfs line to access the files on the DVD via dolphin/nautilus etc., for instance.

comment Can sed remove 'double' newline characters?
Just gave this a whirl with one of my files containing double and triple newlines in a sequence. Doesn't work at all for me.

comment bash: Using read <<<“$VARIABLE” on a read-only root partition
A good approach! Thank you. Plus, I like it that it does not require any external tools (that we are usually not to be expected to find in those restricted environments anyhow). The only thing that may cause some trouble is the $1, $2, $3 stuff: remember that in a script, this will usually stand for an argument passed to the script itself. -- And while we're at it: if IFS is meant to be a space, *IFS= * will not do in this syntax; you will have to specify IFS=' ' explicitly.

comment bash: Using read <<<“$VARIABLE” on a read-only root partition
Thank you very much! A very nice technique, which might even help me multiple times in the future with similar issues. However, one thing is worrying me, and that is the fact that /tmp is a hardcoded path. And probably you've guessed it, /tmp IS there already, but read-only as well! And since working on that recovery console will have me logged into my live file system, I would not want to mess in there by symlinking or whatever (not even while in that console).
