comment A layman's explanation for “Everything is a file” — what differs from Windows?
Judging by that example, you also don't quite understand how filesystems work. Unless name_of_file happens to be a proper filesystem image, you just wrecked that CF card...

comment SSH slow after configuring TCP Wrappers
Although not quite "impossible" and more "not viable" -- chances are the botnet controller will note the vastly reduced response rate, deduce that there's a firewall blocking him and go look for a better target.

comment How to open Fedora without a user password?
Note that this is almost never a good idea. Even on a single user machine in your own home.

comment Force command to be run on logout or disconnect?
Except that it only works if someone 1) uses bash; 2) doesn't change their .bash_logout and 3) always logs off gracefully rather than killing their SSH connection.

This answer only works for a very small subset of situations.

@MichaelShigorin I dunno, googling "rear" sounds to me like a very risky proposition...

The phrase "sign and trust a gpg key automatically" just nearly gave me a coronary.

comment Can TCP provide more than 65535 ports?
@bryan Actually, it makes all the difference, and you don't seem to have read either that question or its answers very well. When WA claims to handle 2 million TCP connections (with 'simultaneously' strongly implied but left unsaid) what they mean is they've tweaked their server software and processing power to optimize response times so that none of said two million connections will time out before the last one is served. They're almost certainly all connecting to one single port on that server, though.

comment Can I disable all man pages?
I'm afraid you're probably stuck as far as the manpages themselves go -- they're part of the debs of the software they go with.
