comment Whats the best way to clear / empty Apache log files periodically
It's always been installed by default on my machines, but I'm not all to picky about paring down initial packages. It is not a dependency of or dependent on Apache, so there's no built-in association between the two.

comment How do I disable network interfaces from loading at boot without Network Manager?
Look in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-<interface name> - is there an ONBOOT= line?

comment What should I do so Ubuntu finds a new application when pressing Alt+F2?
In that case, I would say you'd be better off installing eclipse from the Ubuntu repositories than downloading and unzipping. If you need a specific version of eclipse for some reason, then keep the downloaded version, and see askubuntu.com/questions/26632/how-to-install-eclipse for more details about how to make the .desktop file work.

Is there one read per write? Or can there be multiple reads in between writes, or multiple writes in between reads?

What is the relation of the producer to the consumer? How often will the producer update the data? How long is the data valid for? How often will the consumer access the data?

What have you tried - what modifications of the original sed command did you attempt? What were the results?

comment is it possible to create a macro-like user defined shell command?
It's a convention in all the places I've ever worked to add a .sh extension. "Convnetion" is relative.

comment is it possible to create a macro-like user defined shell command?
That assumes you use the bash shell. If you use a different shell, ~/.bashrc might not be valid.

comment is it possible to create a macro-like user defined shell command?
Creating an alias like this is only valid for the current shell session. It won't be available in new terminal windows, nor will it be available after logout / login. To keep it persistent, it needs to be added to the user account's dot-files, which based on the OP's other questions is a little bit too advanced for today.

comment Initiating programs from command line
@Wolfgang - you implement the -geometery command-line argument if you're the developer of the program. As a user, you either have it available and use it or you don't. To find out if it's available, look at the program's manual page (e.g. man konsole).

comment Use for loop in find exec
Correct on both counts, though I've just fixed the answer to address the first issue you noted. I still don't understand why he's looping inside the find's exec instead of looping over the entire output, but that may be because he never explained that.

comment Extracting Source RPMs in debian
Then the OP should be good to go. That command sequence will extract the source RPM to a directory tree with source tarball and patch files, very similar to what would happen if it could be treated as a tarball and unrolled with tar.

Continue reading the man page. The "OPTIONS" section explains all the options available in the "SYNOPSIS" section.
