comment How can I tell why I have permissions to read a file?
Whoops, looks like you're right. I just assumed that it shouldn't be world-readable and didn't even read the permissions. Silly me. Voting to close.

comment Copy a local file to a remote server, non-root privileges over sudo?
@sim: turning it around would be an option, but let's assume that there's no SSH server on the local machine. About the rsync trick - is it safe? Can the passwordless rsync be taken advantage of in order to escalate privileges using some command-line switch?

comment The ls command is not working for a directory with a huge number of files
You can tune that limit while creating the filesystem, but still - as far as I know, most filesystems aren't optimized for handling millions of files in a single directory. I suggest to split them.

comment The ls command is not working for a directory with a huge number of files
By the way, storing millions of files in a single directory is a rather bad idea. If you control the directory layout, perhaps split it by some criteria?

comment What does this command actually cause?
@Marco: definitely makes sense. Could you submit your comment as an answer so I could vote it up and accept it?

comment What does this command actually cause?
It's unlikely that a valid ELF header happened at least once. Also, one particular action kept happening a lot of the times - creating a file with the random name in the current directory. Thus the question.

comment Stripping null byte blocks with a sparse file?
Interesting, but I assume that the source file still exists. The question is if I can preserve this feature.

comment Transfer a TCP connection from one Linux box to another behind NAT?
That's not really a solution when you're using free services like Rapidshare - you won't be able to resume the download then.

You say that might be the reason that MD5 sums didn't match?
