revised dd: How do I know if it's still working?
Added shortcut to sending the INFO signal in OSX. Super useful. [derobert: add credit to answer that already says this]

comment Using a variable in a regex
@DopeGhoti No problem. Edits to fix errors like that are generally welcome in answers. You probably want to be wary of editing code in questions, as the error might be the cause of the problem. Of course, feel free to fix grammar, spelling, formatting, etc.

comment Using a variable in a regex
@DopeGhoti The question is about why the script doesn't work, and those errors you fixed in your edit are why it doesn't. Editing the question to fix the errors actually renders the question useless...

comment What do '+b#' packages versions mean in Debian?
@Totor a 'binary-only upload' means only the binary changed—it was built from exactly the same source. Common reason would be (for example) to use a new version of a library.

@Jay Directly. The CPU executes instructions from memory. The program consists of instructions, stored in memory.

@Jay you might want to start with Wikipedia's article on System Calls for an overview...

comment Disable ForwardX11Timeout without ForwardX11Trusted in OpenSSH Client?
@peterph That may be, but normally you'd not if the issue was already discussed on your mailing list, a patch posted, shipped in Ubuntu, and referenced on Launchpad (plop 27134 xorg into Google). But its of course possible that they found a deeper issue, and are working on that.

comment Disable ForwardX11Timeout without ForwardX11Trusted in OpenSSH Client?
@slm not a joke, it appears to be bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=27134 ... that bug is secret. Normally that'd be used for a undisclosed security issue. But that doesn't appear to be the case here, so I'm not sure why its secret.

comment Disable ForwardX11Timeout without ForwardX11Trusted in OpenSSH Client?
@peterph Feel free to post as an answer. "No, you can't" definitely answers the question... Yeah, I know the X thing is a bug in the server, its already reported. Probably. Xorg has the bug marked secret.
