comment What is the difference between a directory name that ends with a slash and one that does not?
This is a backslash: \ . This is a forward slash: / (or just slash).

comment How to prevent UDEV rules assigning a device to a specific set of names
Don't use device names like /dev/sda that are likely to be used by other devices. Change your rules to create /dev/myraida through /dev/myraidj or similar.

comment Cron Job every 55 minutes
@JoshuaTerrill, that runs the command at 1:00, 1:55, 2:00, 2:55, etc. */10 works ok because 60 is divisible by 10. It's not divisible by 55.

comment Is it possible to have 2 different passwords saved for the same network?
You shouldn't need to do a factory reset just to pick up a new IP address. Can't you teach them to pull the power plug for 10 seconds and plug it back in? Or get one of the extension cords made for Christmas trees with a remote switch.

comment Is it possible to have 2 different passwords saved for the same network?
What about changing the router's SSID along with the password? That way, when it's reset to the default password the SSID should also be reset. Then you simply need to configure two different networks. Alternately, connect the Pi via cable instead of Wi-Fi so it doesn't need a password.

comment What does “WHIRLPOOL size ;-)” mean?
But it's not installed size, it's tarball size. Otherwise, it couldn't be checked until it was ready to install. And since Gentoo allows so much customization of packages, installed size isn't consistent anyway.

comment Why is proc called a file system?
Because they're directories in a filesystem. (Well, /boot is frequently a separate filesystem, but it's not a separate kind of filesystem.)
