comment Why doesn't copying large files prevent Linux from going into power saving mode?
@richard They linked right to that question in this one, and this looks like a follow-up, not the same question

comment Firefox keeps asking me if I want to deactivate flash (on websites that don't have flash content)
This doesn't explain why you'd get the error on a page with no flash, which is what the question is about

Again -- you really need to stop posting programming questions here. I don't know what the deal is, but you clearly know about SO since they've all been migrated there. Just post there directly

@OlivierDulac Sadly it doesn't, that's just how I used to format keys; somebody edited my answer later to make them separate keys

comment extract text to csv file from output of reading multiple files into specific rows
This is probably unanswerable without samples of what you're actually searching for; it's going to involve some kind of regex parsing

comment Edit columnar data in vim
This answer seems very limited if I'm reading it correctly. OP wants a method where pressing tab will space out to the same column as the previous line, and they probably want to do that repeatedly so they can easily enter many rows of data. You gave a way to jump to the end of a particular line when opening a file or to search for a particular string; neither of those is going to solve their problem.

Do the answers on the other question not solve this problem? They seem perfect. Having good answers here isn't a reason not to close as a duplicate, we can always merge them

comment How do I know which version of Debian I'm running?
@IQAndreas I don't use Debian, but based on wiki.debian.org/DebianSqueeze and wiki.debian.org/DebianWheezy it sure seems like they're in sync. I reopened it since your question is maybe slightly different, but the only different part is "which Debian version is Squeeze and which is Wheezy", which seems pretty easy to resolve unless I'm misunderstanding something

How is syncing the time distro-specific? It has nothing to do with your distro

comment Saving output of mplayer
@nwildner It sure seems to. mplayer and mencoder are part of the same toolkit, and the question even says "Any alternative command-line solution is welcome too, I am not tied to mplayer."

@Tom That's not what I get on Linux; I don't have a Solaris box to test on. Can you just ps aux and grep that?

comment How to create a script that can't be easily exited
Do you want to prevent interrupts from killing a script, or do you want to prevent users from canceling the update? The latter is more general and has simpler solutions, so you're going to end up getting answers for that even if you asked for the former
