comment Execution of possibly harmful program on Linux
I really intended my comment as a joke, but if you really can use it, that would be amazing. Honestly, the LiveCD answer (with RAMdisk) is a great solution.

What systems does this work for? It worked for me on CentOs, but file does not exist on Ubuntu 10.04.

Unf the analogous line for me (CentOs 6, 2.6.32-71.el6.x86 kernel), is CPU0: AMD Opteron(tm) Processor 4184 stepping 01.

@Mat I'm worried that fallocate (or posix_fallocate) will take too long on some OSes, but I'll look into this; cheers.

Yes, something like this. I think the last > sign is an error, however (you can't redirect stdout twice).

comment Obtaining md5 during wget
@MaxMackie: It is definitely possible: since I'm downloading the entire file, wget could theoretically run it through MD5. Unf, it doesn't.

comment Need to execute javascript as a cron job… possible?
Thanks for the pointer, Joby, but it looks like PhantomJS requires Xvfb anyway (ie, it's not really headless) so I'm probably just going to use Firefox (which I don't have to build myself).
