I've been using Linux and Unix professionally since 1995, mostly in Linux-related sysadmin/systems architect jobs supporting academia. I generally know my stuff, but am very happy to learn something new and to be corrected when I'm wrong. Currently, I am the Fedora Project Leader.

What if the file is created in the meantime? Perhaps even more crucially, what if there is some other error in the first connection?

Perfect! Although substituting Arial for Helvetica might count as blasphemy; I went with MgOpen Moderna instead.

@Wilf Yes, I'm using that -- it says Helvetica Regular, and under that, smaller, "system"

comment Why does Alt+SysRq+B not always trigger while REISU do?
Yep! There are "gaming" or "professional" keyboards that do register all keys separately. Search for "n-key rollover", or NKRO. (Das Keyboard is one example. I have no affiliation with them except I love mine.)

comment How to install package via yum in Fedora
Please note that Fedora 15 reached end-of-life over two years ago, in June 2012. That means that security and bug fix updates are no longer produced. Please update to a current release. (Right now, F20 is your best bet!) Also, Fedora 15 was kind of a rough release, with early systemd and big changes to the desktop environments. Newer releases are a lot more polished.
