comment What is the recommended filesystem to use when reaching sizes of 50TB?
Interesting read. Like I said, I haven't used it myself, and I'm not sure if I ever will due to the general lack of support outside of Solaris, but it was specificaly designed to handle large amounts of data. Reiser may be better for your application due to the better support or possibly ext4 like you said. Good luck, I'd be interested to know what you end up using and your general results.

comment What is the proper way to automate SSH/local command?
Very true. I was just thinking that this may be easier to use a bash alias or something simple like that. I am a big fan of expect now though; made my life much easier.

comment Can ping but can't do ssh
Does he have an SSH daemon (sshd) running? Also, is he behind a router? If he is, you'll need port forwarding enabled on the router.

Also, with SSH you can use authentication keys as well which will automatically log you in without having to store your username/pass in a .bashrc file as plain text.

comment View stdout/stderr of systemd service
Why not try setting StandardOutput=tty so you can see what is happening when you launch your daemon. It should output the terminal (you may have to use ttyS0 or similar to get the output on your screen).

Have you tried checking /var/log/syslog for output? Most systems will log stuff into /var/log/ so I'd start by checking there. You can use grep to search for text if you know the output: grep "my output" /var/log should do the trick.

comment Disabling (or removing) X from CrunchBang home server
Yeah disabling is is probably safer than removing it, but I if you don't use X at all, it should be safe to remove it as well. I haven't tested it though. I usually use a net install disk and don't download X related packages when I build a system that won't use X.

comment Can't see files on my cell phone
What did you do on you Android phone after connecting it? Did you mount the USB device to allow the host (Debian) to read the filesystem and SDcard? Usually after you connect your phone, you get a notification "USB Connected". If you click on that, you can Turn on USB Storage mode which should allow the host to read the files on the device.

comment Making the Spotify Linux client (for Debian) run on RHEL
Unless there is a way to pass in the root path to the binary via command line when you launch the application, I'm not sure if you'll be able to do this. If the paths are hard coded in the binary you are stuck. If they rely on system variables (more likely) you'll still need root access to adjust things like the PATH variable. The only other thing I can think of is using a VM which seems like overkill, but if you have VirtualBox installed with Windows you could try that.

comment Making the Spotify Linux client (for Debian) run on RHEL
Have you tried creating symoblic links from the Debian default directories to where you put the files using ln -s? I'd think you could probably trick the binary that way to load the appropriate skin.
