comment understanding /dev/disk/by- folders
On my system (x86_64 Arch linux, installed within the last 3 months) all of the /dev/disk/by-*/ entries comprise symbolic links to /dev/sd[ab][1234567] block device files. Of what use are these various naming schemes?

comment Viewing very wide files
If you use vim on a file with 5200-character long lines, do ":set nowrap" and ":syntax off", otherwise you will get amazingly poor response times from vim.

comment Receiving Syslog messages with a systemd Arch Linux
Yes, agreed. How do I get systemd to run something that listens on UDP port 514, or to listen on port 514 for syslog-format messages? On my current elderly server, the syslogd process has UDP port 514 open. On my new Arch server, nothing listens on UDP port 514. How do I get something to do that listening?
