comment How to use the date command to find out what date “monday week 40” will be?
Well, at least if I ask for last tuesday today, date -d 'last tuesday' I get Di 27. Aug 00:00:00 CEST 2013 (which is last tuesday in German locale).

@AdamSpiers: My calendar displays as Monday, week 40 the 30th of Sep. which is what my algo yields (today).

I'm not sure whether I understand your critique. It's 2013 this year, so the example from the question doesn't fit. What should be the absolute date for the question, and what does my approach return instead (maybe: why)?

comment How do I delete everything in a directory?
No, it doesn't explain why you delete a directory and recreate it then. To the things to consider belongs, btw., date/time of creation too.

comment Why do systems become slow when doing massive writes to disk?
Maybe it is swapping to memory and therefore slowing down, when the disk is under heavy use otherwise. A systemload-plugin could tell you, whether you're using swap in a graphical way. For the commandline, use free.

I don't really understand all rules of the bounty system. Since I think you deserve the bounty, I restart a new bounty.

Wow. That is pretty complicated, but it seems to work. :) I don't know why the reward vanished. Unfortuantely I hadn't time before to test the hints.

comment How to run xfce-terminal with different commands per tab and keep using the tabs after the commands have returned?
This is a little helpful, while not as far as I hoped for. When I start gradle with `xfce4-terminal --working-directory=/home/stefan/oximity/med -e "bash -c 'gradle explodedWar explodedWarSync;bash'" ` a tab is opened, named but it shows "gradle: command not found" while entering the command there works fine. Git, mysql and scala work fine that way, but for jboss, Ctrl-C terminates the whole jboss-tab. I could only prepare the shell starting there - maybe echoing the command to input. I don't really understand what's making the differences here.

Does it work with multiple tabs?

@slm: Yes, I like to keep the terminal open to process further commands - I just like to start the first of my commands automatically and have multiple, named tabs.

That doesn't work because gradle and jboss are permanently producing output. You don't like to have them mix up their output. The database- and scala-terminal are interactive. There is no sense in putting them into the background. The idea to open other commands in different tabs is, that the history is only filled with few different commands to one topic and therefore fast browsable.
