comment Why is a service being started if it isn't mentioned in /etc/init.d?
I have updated the question title to better reflect this, but I am seeing that distccd is actually being started with a service distccd start, even though there is no file /etc/init.d/distccd. So I am asking how that is happening, not how to make it happen.

comment How to remember the difference between du and df?
Hah, Unix & Linux's tag autofill has already partially answered my question! Way to go! (I had tagged the question du, and after submission it autofilled it to disk-usage)

comment Why does bash variable expansion retain quotes?
Sorry, I didn't want to distract with too much detail, but what I'm doing isn't really complicated, IMO. I'm creating a script that takes a "time" and a "message". It then runs at for the given "time", and tells at to run the command dzen2. dzen2 takes the "message" from stdin, and also uses some other static parameters. The difficulty is that I need to pipe the "message" parameter from the user into the dzen2 command, but I'm not actually running dzen2 myself, I'm telling at to do it.

comment Why does bash variable expansion retain quotes?
@jw013 Good point and great articles. I like the quote "Variables hold data, functions hold code." from the first link, but for my usage, the data that is given to a function (in this case, at) is code. Any tips on a safer way to organize/collect code that will be given to at?
