comment Replacement queue now that batch doesn't accept input files?
I see, now that would work. I completely missed your objective.

comment Replacement queue now that batch doesn't accept input files?
@John1024 that looks like a neat project, but it's not exactly what a queue accomplishes. A proper job queue starts the next process in line when the amount of resources requested becomes available. More elaborate queues search the waiting list for jobs that best fit the amount of resources available. It's more than just automation. It's resource management.

To be fair, I can accomplish something that is similar to the old batch method using at now < queue_list.

comment How to set umask so that directories to be `r-x` and files to be `---`
Or what about setting up umask to 7 and then having a script that runs chmod +x on directories when one is created?

What about setting up a separate mask for files?

comment How to set umask so that directories to be `r-x` and files to be `---`
Why not do something like chmod 600 foo.bar? I know that's not using umask, but it works.

Wait, you want no access permissions on the files at all? Not even for their owner?

Or background it with &. Wouldn't that accomplish the same thing?

comment Align Partition Of HDD Using fdisk?
From here: "...Linux' fdisk, however, still uses a virtual C-H-S system where you can define any number of heads and sectors yourself (the cylinders are calculated automatically from the drive's capacity), with partitions always starting and ending at intervals of heads x cylinders. Thus, you need to choose a number of heads and sectors of which the SSD's erase block size is a multiple." This specifically refers to SSDs. I am asking about HDDs.
