comment How to remove all the files in a directory?
My suggestion was to use 'rm -r images/.*' which would match 'images/..' but not 'images/../..'. The recursion can't go upwards, since 'images/../images/..' is again the same directory.

comment shell script to get collect pixel size of image
Don't do "cd" in scripts. You can iterate from your current directory over the files too. And don't do "ls" in scripts. In bash, you can do: for f in $f/OEBPS/image/*{png,jpeg,jpg}. A ls will bite you if you have blanks and such in fillenames.

b) Describe 'similarly'. a) For a new question, create a new question. You might then link to this question, pointing out, that it is a similar problem. This should give you much more attention. Note that longer scripts/commands in comments are hardly readable.

comment How to use the date command to find out what date “monday week 40” will be?
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.
