comment Find -exec + vs find | xargs. Which one to choose?
-print0 is a pain and though you can argue xargs --delimiter "\n" isn't equivalent, I've never once used the former after discovering the latter.

comment Move files and delete directories with rsync?
I just feel compelled to add, never use -delete and --remove-source-files in a single rsync command (the above examples are fine, this is tangential). If you interrupt then re-execute what I'm describing, you'll lose transferred files. Which I've done before :(

Thanks for the info. Good to know disown is a good solution. Is there any way to use disown "inline" like nohup? Looking at the manpages it doesn't appear so :(

Good information. But the zsh one doesn't work. Is this a drop-in replacement for my command? Or do I need to do something else differently?

Oh, it works for me with bash. So zsh is to blame?

I'm actually using zsh 5.0.2 (though I wrote "bash" above). What happens when you do it? What version of bash do you use? If it works for you I should try that out myself.
