comment Is there a file search engine like “Everything” in Linux?
I'm unsure if inotify could be useful here as it's not recursive. Creating watches for the whole tree is simple, but can the kernel handle many tens of thousands of them? Even if it can, this doesn't look as an effective way to me.

comment Selective recursive move?
Actually, I'm interested in both mv and cp. Both with or without subdirectories. So this solution is useful, too.

comment Rolling back a file
@Roland Consider using git, after some learning it's so easy to use and so fast, so you'll never think about not versioning anything (and you'll not understand how you ever could use svn). I need less than one minute to create a repo for a new project, to commit, and to clone to a server. Just my opinion, not gonna start a flame war.

comment Why isn't a straightforward 1/5/15 minute moving average used in Linux load calculation?
@user5528 The times 1min/5min/15min do have sense. They determine the time after which the influence of the current load drops by some fixed factor (probably e=2.71.. or maybe 2). Just try it out.

comment Need help with re-partitioning
You can probably do something very simple instead. Your root directory surely contains something what not really belongs there. Either reconfigure the program working with it or move the whole directory to another partition and create a symlink pointing there instead.
