comment Disk on key is read only on every computer
hdparm only controls the kernel read only setting for a drive, not any hardware setting it may have.

comment Why is iterating over a file twice faster than reading it into memory and computing twice?
@LaurentC., no, it is only read one time in the second example. There is only one call to tail.

comment Is pvcreate destructive? Attempting to recover an lvm2 volume group
Both pvcreate and vcfgrestore are destructive operations you should not bandy about without really knowing what you are doing.

comment I am the owner of a file and I have write access: why can't I save?
sudo changes who you are, though as root you should be able to write to it no matter who owns it. Also the error indicates it is trying to save it to your home directory instead of /Library/PostgreSQL/9.3.

comment How do I fix this boot-up error (attempt to read or write outside of partition)?
The disk is apparently corrupt. Troubleshooting such issues isn't a good fit for the question/answer format of this site.

comment Hard drive partition and updating trouble
@terdon, they should have their own where they import most packages from Ubuntu, and modify some, just like Ubuntu does with Debian.

comment Grow LVM RAID10?
@JackDouglas, ahh, right.. It looks like patches to support this were posted to the mailing list in April of 2012, and were merged into the kernel, but it doesn't look like the support was added to mdadm. I've pinged the mailing list to check but I think it is possible by fiddling with sysfs directly instead of mdadm.

comment Hard drive partition and updating trouble
You shouldn't be using the Ubuntu archive in mint; gparted should be in mint's repositories. Also raring is end of life.

comment How use tune2fs in with dd?
Note that if you have e2fsprogs 1.42.9 or later, you can use e2image instead of dd and it will be much faster as it skips unused blocks.

comment Why does the kernel boot faster with less memory allocated?
Constraining everything to run in less memory may make it more likely that the memory that is there all fits in the cpu's cache.
