comment What are some ways to update symlinks when the dir they point to are changed?
@Ulrich: Organize my directories. one topic is represented as a directory. A topic can have several subtopics, in the sense that a directory can have several subdirs. My topics are constantly under reorganization, so i often rename dirs, and change ancestral dirs.

@mikeserv Thank you. That seems to be a solution. Does mount --bind become not working if I change the mounted dir's ancestral dirs or its names? Is it different from hard links? How does it work? Feel free to post a reply. I always upvote replies.

comment How do I search files without certain extensions in their names?
I see. If first locate for library, how do you process its output to eliminate those files and dirs with those special strings in their names?

Thanks! Will your way be faster than first locate for library, and then do some text processing (?) on its output to eliminate those unwanted files and dirs?

comment Query Firefox password database
Will consider that. Do you know what command in sqlite3 to show the item for one website e.g. for sourceforge.net (see the update at the end of my post), instead of pulling out lot of stuffs for all the websites?

Without the master key set, will the login passwords show themselves directly, when you query in sqlite3?
