comment How can I tell if xfs_repair is stuck or still running?
Looking at strace - does the output change at all? If not it's stuck.

comment Is there a way to resolve ALL PIA VPN IPs with a script?
Hmmm ... How interesting. When I run the query from different locations I get different results (always the same for the same location), but their DNS never returns more than 13 records. Stink. There's some overlap, but, using a web based tool, a shell account in the US and my local ISP I get three overlapping but different result sets. I guess there's no simple way to get every IP of theirs.

comment Is there a way to resolve ALL PIA VPN IPs with a script?
@Jsmith93: I just checked a few lines, and e.g. USA California claims on the website they have 220 servers, but they only return 13 IP ... so, I'll trust DNS more than their website statements ;}

@Jsmith93: that's an excellent question that I don't have the time to answer :) ... feel free to play with the command-line and disect individual steps, verify that what each outputs matches your expectations/compare counts (add random wc - l statements in disecting)...

comment How is it that the same find command can give two different results?
That doesn't sound right - execute it under strace?
