comment Ubuntu 14.04 I can't get SSH tunneling to work with -g switch?
Try running ssh with -v and possibly without -N and -f and this should spit out some errors in the terminal that will be helpful in debugging where the problem is really occurring.

comment Why the existence of gunzip?
Interesting question. Probably the only way to find out for sure is to find the reasons through an extensive search of old Usenet articles or e-mails. I suspect that @lcd047 is correct. gzip uses the same Lempel-Ziv algorithm that pkzip used so I guess they decided that its a clone of pkzip. I never think of it as a clone of pkzip but when you read the gzip man page that connection cannot be ignored.

comment Is my default remote shell a trouble maker?
@Patrick You really should tell someone why its a bad idea instead of just saying its bad and stupid. People don't react well to being told their way is stupid and then close themselves off to your reasons for why the idea is stupid. So maybe you should explain why its a bad idea and educate everyone.

comment How to print keypresses in .inputrc format?
Is Ctrl+' used for something specific? Is it something that legacy systems had or something?

comment How to print keypresses in .inputrc format?
Well I just thought it was another option to try. I see the problem with Ctrl-' now. That's weird that the ;, ', , and . keys don't generate control sequences. Neither do the number keys. Never noticed that before.
