comment Tracking down where disk space has gone on Linux?
You can use the -x option of find to make sure you don't find files on other devices than the start point of your find command. This fixes the remotely mounted drives issue.

comment Running “patch” without generating *.orig and *.rej files
This doesn't work for me – it just puts the rejects in a file called "-", which is a very very annoying filename to have around. I'm using version 2.5.8 on a Mac.

comment Why is rm slow?
I haven't formally benchmarked it, but I did try it after reading someone else's benchmarks, and the difference was substantial. I can't find that post any more, but this answer on serverfault has an explanation and source for an even faster delete program.
