comment Continuing an interrupted `wget` session?
What I'm after isn't necessarily the same server-session (I can see how that'd be difficult), but rather keep going... ie. not downloading what I've already have downloaded, not caring if the page since have changed. My main problem is 1) identifying which pages has already been retrieved, and 2) which pages/links had yet been downloaded and parsed. So basically, if I've downloaded the page already, I'll ignore if it's changed since.

comment Continuing an interrupted `wget` session?
@jimmij I thought that was more for continuing downloading one really large file you'd started? E.g. you're downloading an 4GB ISO-file and gets cut-off midway... then -c let you continue downloading that file where you left off. What I need, is a way to continuing harvesting links and downloading from a site I'm trying to mirror.

comment System keeps asking me for root password instead of my password!
sudo -i also give you a root-shell (alternative to sudo bash). Be sure your username (the one you intend to be able to use sudo for administrative tasks) is a member of the sudo-group (it used to be the administrators-group, but now it's the sudo-group),

comment Purpose of permissions such as 0111 or 0333
Unless it's a script (eg. shell-script) you actually don't need read-permission to execute a command. A "normal" executable -- eg. su, bash or vi -- just need the executable-bit to be set, to allow a user to run it. A file that can't be read, can't be copied. So by not allowing a user to copy a security-important command (like su), he's prevented from making his own copy of it -- and also from trying disassemble it. *BSD has several commands with execute but no read permission.
