comment How do I sort words by syllable count?
perl has a module called Lingua::EN::Syllable which "estimates the number of syllables in the word passed to it." search.cpan.org/~neilb/Lingua-EN-Syllable-0.30 (packaged for debian as liblingua-en-syllable-perl)

comment How to make iptables logs to identify protocols by name and not by number?
no problem, it made the question more interesting for me to answer than just the single 2-->IGMP solution :). BTW, i think of it more as showing off the power of shell than awk. The awk and sed scripts themselves are fairly simple examples of what those tools can do....it's the shell's ability to combine multiple tools with pipelines and command substitution that's really powerful.

comment killing a process in one line
your way doesn't work because it makes no sense. it's both wrong and massively over-complicated (e.g. why do you think you need sudo to kill a process you own?). BTW, if you have pgrep, you also have pkill.

comment RAID: ZFS or Btrfs?
sorry, i got that second sentence wrong. a 3-drive RAID-Z (or RAID-5) would have the same capacity as a 4-drive pool of two mirrored pairs (or RAID-10). the mirrored pairs would be much faster for both reads and writes. with mirrored pairs, you also have the option of starting with two drives now, and adding two more later when you need the extra space. and then two more some time later again.

comment RAID: ZFS or Btrfs?
I strongly recommend adding a fourth drive and using two mirrored pairs (similar to RAID-10). Less capacity overall, but much better performance. and easier to upgrade (when you upgrade a raid-z, you have to upgrade all drives in the vdev before you get any extra storage available. To upgrade a pool made of mirrored pairs, you can either upgrade just one mirrored pair at a time, OR add an extra mirrored pair of drives. technically you could also add a mirrored pair vdev to a pool that has a raidz vdev but performance will still suck)
