comment Why is data still recoverable after writing zeros to a harddrive?
Multiple passes are not required. At least not with modern hard drives.

comment Why aren't RAM drives standard in enterprise storage?
I'm not sure I understand the question correctly. By RAM drive, do you mean a virtual RAM drive or a RAM-based SSD?

comment Why aren't RAM drives standard in enterprise storage?
@cybermonkey: No part of your comment makes any sense. 1. GBps means Gigabytes per second, Gbps means Gigabits per second. There's no GBPS. 2. DDR3-1066 has a peak transfer rate of 8.5 GBps. 3. The native transfer rate of SATA III is 6 Gbps, which gives a maximum data transfer rate of 0.6 GBps. 4. There are SAS SSDs and PCIe SSDs, so SATA III's limitations are meaningless.

comment regex search on google-chrome or firefox browsers?
@mernst: I've replaced my second suggestion (which is horribly broken in the latest Chrome) with yours. If you could jump to the next match without using the mouse, it would be perfect.

There is no cpu count metric, how are you counting the physical cores? Does siblings say 2 or 4?

User "nobody" isn't spevial to the OS, but you can add an entry in the sudoers file that allows passwordless sudo for "nobody".

comment Should I install Internet Explorer updates although I disabled it?
Be aware that disabling IE may affect other software. I've learned that the hard way after wasting a couple of hours trying to install Corel Draw. The installer uses IE to display the EULA.

comment How to find out when a disc (DVD) has been written/burned?
@FranckDernoncourt: Audio DVDs use UDF as well, but audio CDs require a different approach. It's midnight where I live; I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

comment How to find out when a disc (DVD) has been written/burned?
@FranckDernoncourt: No. ISO 9660 and UDF are file systems of optical data discs.

comment How to make ssh log in as the right user?
@CristianCiupitu: That's another BSD version. It only results in minor differences here (noneof them relevant to the question), but using BSD man pages for Linux distros (and vice versa) is generally a bad idea. For example, the syntaxes of the BSD and Linux flavors stat are completely different.

comment How to make ssh log in as the right user?
@CristianCiupitu: Considering the is a Linux question, I'd hardly call the OpenBSD's man page the official one. There are options in Linux's ssh (e.g., GSSAPIKeyExchange) that aren't available in the BSD version.

comment execl: couldn't exec `/bin/sh'
I see. Moving around the directories might have had a lot of unexpected consequences. Services might have been terminated because they couldn't read configuration files or execute binaries, and I'm not entirely sure that all special files inside /dev will function properly after moving them around. If all files are once again where they belong (and, at least, /bin/sh and /bin/bash seem to be), I'd say your best bet is a restart.

You you post ls -l /bin/bash as well? Did you try restarting the machine?
