comment Why do /usr and /tmp directories for Linux miss vowels in their spellings?
I heared /usr stands for unix system ressources, not user. But I too heard that it is another myth. :) I don't have evidence.

comment Why do /usr and /tmp directories for Linux miss vowels in their spellings?
I have never written or inspected a filesystem in depth, but does the name of a file/directory in the filesystem occupy more or less space, depending on 1 character? The files themselves always occupy a multiple of some size - today 4k. So most files which contain a path to /usr or /tmp will not effectively get smaller or bigger, depending on a single e. Well - sometimes they will, and then they grow for a whole blocksize, but rarely. And in RAM? I don't know.

comment gnu find and masking the {} for some shells - which?
@geekosaur: Can you say which specific csh-version on which specific platform? I would prefer to test it myself (if it is possible on linux) or be assured, that the person testet it himself.

comment gnu find and masking the {} for some shells - which?
No. I'm in a debate with a guy who says, that in our wiki we should give the advice to use "{}" all the time, because the man page says so. And now I would like to know if there is a shell I'm not using, like ksh, zsh, tcsh, csh or XYZsh which I don't know, for which this claim is true, or whether I honestly can assume, that there isn't. If there are shells for different Unixes which need the "{}", that would be a fine explanation why the sentence is still in the man page, but not appropriate as advice for linux beginners.

Nice to hear, but I'm asking for the opposite, a shell for which doesn't handle it sanely.

comment Is it possible to find the path of a running program?
No, of course not, because both will show up as ./someexecutable or /bin/bash ./someexecutable

ps -C xmms should make your grep obsolete.

@jinxed_coder: That reminds me of vnc/vino, allthough I allways used it the other way round - I allways was the observer - and I only used it in a 1:1 connection, and don't know whether it is possible to have multiple viewers. Maybe it is possible with X11 alone. And maybe you need much bandwith.
