comment How can I enter unicode characters on KDE?
@Gilles for me personally, it's usually about testing software I'm developing. This means I usually don't need the full gammut of characters, because usually fixing one wide character bug will fix the others. At the same time there is some need for variety in testing. The hunt and click option is probably the best, I don't have to type these characters frequently (thus don't have an identified subset), and I don't want to generally spend time going to a website if I don't have to find their codes.

comment How can I enter unicode characters on KDE?
it appears I have to keep holding down ctrl+shift, but when it inserts it it also leaves the u2197 in the text area... so I'd have to delete that.

comment foolproof way to detect if java process is running
Build a health check into the application. Spring actuator has some good stuff, or at least will give you an idea. Your app could be running according to the os but not responding. App providing a health check could catch that in addition to it catching dead app.

comment How do I recursively check permissions in reverse?
hadn't looked at this in a long time, but I think I just realized why I had problems with it. it looks at the path you give it, so if you do namei -l file you'll just get that permission. namei /home/user/file would give the listing from root.
