comment Writing raw images safely to USB sticks
Shouldn't you use the block subsystem? If i am not mistaken, this rule will match the /dev/usb/xxx/yyy device instead of /dev/sdc. ATTRS rather than ATTR should match parent devices (i.e. block).

comment What are considered utilities and applications?
I was referring to this post on AU. On the SE network, it is frowned upon to post the same questions on different sites. Also, this question has some answers now. If something is still not clear, please comment on it.

comment “hard-linking” parts of a big file in which only a small part has changed
The key that may help finding an answer is "incremental backup" or "delta backup".

comment “hard-linking” parts of a big file in which only a small part has changed
btrfs snapshotting is not a backup, if the underlying storage breaks, then your data is still (partially) lost. The --inplace option is unfortunately not going to help either, the OPs usage concerns using rsync as a snapshotting tool. Nevertheless, your suggestion of mounting a image is still helpful (+1).

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
@MarkPlotnick Arch Linux has readline 6.3, it must be Python's implementation then. bash 4.3 does not delete .bash_history if it is a symlink.

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
@MarkPlotnick Good suggestion, unfortunately it does not work as Python 3.4 still removes the directory (changing permissions does not make a difference).

comment check if interface eth0 is up (configured)
This is insufficient. The output also contains UP if the device is up, but no cable is connected: 2: eth0: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state DOWN group default qlen 1000. You can also specify the device to avoid false positives: ip addr show dev eth0.

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
This still causes ~/.python_history to be written (verified with PYTHONSTARTUP=$HOME/.pythonrc strace -e file,write -o /tmp/st python). I start to think that there is no way to disable this, but keep tab-completion without duplicating code from /usr/lib/python3.4/site.py.

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
This seems to enable writing a history file instead of disabling it if I am not mistaken? Unless set_history_length does something magical? Tab-completion is done for functions, not history.

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
@goldilocks Yes, I was about to link to that bug report. I don't know how to use inputrc though and chmod does not work for me either, the file gets modified anyway (Arch Linux). There exists an info inputrc page, but I am generally not so happy with reading info pages as they are difficult to navigate through.

comment How can I disable the new history feature in Python 3.4?
@goldilocks I do not consider that an acceptable solution, and neither is using chattr. I am looking for a single (user) configuration file or environment variable.
