comment Assistance with script on multiple hosts
(random observation, it's Friday, feeling too lazy to go through carefuly) HOSTS should be space-separated... not comma-space. You don't want those commas.

comment Assistance with script on multiple hosts
@ZairaZareena there is a button at the top of the text editor that looks like {} — to use, select some text then click it. That text will be put in "code" formatting (i.e., plain text, line breaks preserved, etc.). That makes it much easier to read.

comment Is there a technical reason why ssh-agent lacks a sudo-like inactivity/idle timeout feature?
Another workaround: use the ControlMaster/ControlPath/ControlPersist options (see man ssh_config) for your script. At least if its only connecting to one host.

comment End recording once silence is detected
Sox can read audio data from STDIN over a pipe. Just a pointer, not sure if that'll help... Or it can talk to PulseAudio, and you could do audio routing through PA.

comment Problems with file system
Also, that looks like you've hit a kernel bug, a hardware issue, or maybe compiled your kernel with a feature your CPU doesn't support (picked slightly the wrong CPU—though I have no idea if that would even boot)

Have you tried e2fsck -f on the partition (without it mounted, of course)?
