comment store Unix file permissions on a VFAT partition
That was my last paragraph. The down side is that if I don't use all the space, its just a waste (and that space is not available for other uses, see 1) and if the amount I pre allocate is not enough, I'm stuck.

comment store Unix file permissions on a VFAT partition
Miline: see point 2 above. It's important, otherwise I wouldn't have written it. Also, tarballs on vfat partitions are limited to 2GB size, which makes my use case problematic (using multi-tape or split can help, but those only make selective restore massively harder)

comment What does “--” (double-dash) mean? (also known as “bare double dash”)
@l0b0: the pattern to search is normally one of the positional parameters, so it can fit after the --, though you are correct in noting that my example above could also be written as grep -e -v file (although that is very confusing).

comment How to get a procesess's actual memory usage (including data in swap)
You probably meant:github.com/pixelb/ps_mem :-) Does this summary includes memory mapped files? does "shared" includes both shared library and shared data pages?

comment How to get a procesess's actual memory usage (including data in swap)
Thanks for the pgrep suggestion. At least on my system, a process' proc entries cannot be read without root permissions.

comment Parsing arbitrary natural language dates under BSD
Right - I was mistaken in my assertion previously - I read the numbers in correctly (they were very similar - Levenshtein distance 2). fifolog_reader does behave weirdly with some (but not all) natural language dates.
