comment Is it safe to take the drive image of the current working drive?
@BenVoigt - to some extend - it eliminates one layer (filesystem) and AFAIK it's the 'more fragile' one. Still in some cases you can find a half-written files but if application doesn't deal with them it the files can be corrupted in many other circumstances as well (OOM, crash, etc.) so correctly written application should deal with it.

comment Is it safe to take the drive image of the current working drive?
Note that step 4 can be dangerous on some filesystems as they do write even in the read-only mode. Also on more modern systems (Linux 3.something I belive) you can just link /etc/mtab to /proc/self/mount - which will work even when you have such things as chroots or fs namespaces.

comment Setting `$EDITOR` to open file in local emacs session
@devnull due to presence of NAT closer to pbm solution but essentially yes. I voted to close (the linked question could be titled better I guess - it did not come up in search).

comment How to run parallel processes and combine outputs when both finished
@StephenHenderson depending on size the files can still be in cache. If speed's critical you can just use tmpfs (and the files are <<< then your RAM).

comment Can I share a device from under /dev across hosts?
@portforwardpodcast I don't think it will work straightforwardly - you would probably need to wrap it in unix pipe so you might need to write a program/script on both sides.
