If you don't trust /dev/urandom, you have no reason to trust GPG either.

This is wrong. /dev/urandom is fine for cryptography.

comment Is a sub-shell the same thing as a child-shell
@cuonglm “Child shell” is not a technical term with a specific meaning, unlike “subshell”. If it's a shell that's a child, then it's a child shell, following the usual rules of English.

comment How do I do a ls and then sort the results by date created?
@ghoti If no files were ever deleted (or moved/renamed/hardlinked/…) in the directory, then the directory order is creation order on some filesystems, but not all. That's not true on ext4, for example. I don't know if it's true on Solaris's UFS.

@Tim Same thing as sh -c: that's a subprocess that coincidentally happens to be a shell.
