comment New files and folders created, automatically inherit same permissions as parent folder
Is your script running also from the web, as in a webpage or something, or are you running it from CLI?

comment Share X11 with remote server where X11 are not installed
What do you mean, 'share your X11 window system'? Could you elaborate a little on what you are trying to achieve?

comment Can anybody recommend an HTTP debugging proxy?
A couple of rules in WireShark would be able to help you with filtering the output to what you really want to see as well.

comment Keep SSH Sessions running after disconnection
This is it. No need to install screen or tmux. This is actually the good old way to do it. Sure 'screen' or 'tmux' are both wonderous apps and should be used when needed, but as simple as running a process in the background from which you can log out, go for the above.

comment How can I tweak the kernel for total swap out?
There should be at least reservations of most of the running processes in swap, yes. That's what I've always seen as well, but I'm not sure the current linux kernels do that anymore. This here (linux.com/news/software/applications/…) seems a bit informative about the 2.6 linux kernel swapping ways and some control.

comment How to track down memory spikes?
This might actually be a good idea. psacct usually is used to record, report or even limit via quota of CPU usage or clock ticks. It was the old way of making sure the customer/user of the UNIX server was paying the usage he/she/it did. One note on this though, psacct turned on to at least log everything is a massive disk-hogger in disk space usage.

comment How to get file to a host when all you have is a serial console?
Might I suggest a big red warning sign above your first idea? Some lonely soul with the heart to learn might execute something like that in the hopes of copying just files, without reading the following paragraph first of course :)

Nope, minicom handles its own file xfers. sx,sy,sz and rx,ry,rz are separate programs, usually found in packages aptly named lszrz or something. Though I would suggest using sz and rz. Small, simple and it does what it does. Minicom is a whole terminal emulator.

comment How to compile and install programs from source
@Matt, sure it makes sense but I think the comment was directed more at the fact that Sandy now made it appear as if there's an autogen.sh in every git'd/svn'd trunk.
