comment How can I remove new line character in prompt?
-1, this is not a diagram, and this question means nothing.

comment When ones moves a PC around, does wireless internet slow down?
Although it seems obvious, moving away from the AP is the least of your problem in a library or complex indoor places. As said by bamboon, reflections and obstacles are far more important.

comment Combine tail -f with grep?
No it will launch the two programs in parallel, and the second one (grep) will exit as soon as tail's STDOUT closes. That's the whole point of pipes, data streaming :)

comment Bluetooth pairing on the command line in Ubuntu 11.10
It means there already is an agent running. Should be something like blueman (blueman-manager). 'killall blueman-manager' should do the trick.

comment Why can't I see other computers' traffic in the output of tcpdump?
I fail to see the relevance of your comment in this context, as I didn't say that a NIC sends anything to a specific station.

comment MAC-address like characters preceding username in Mac OS X prompt
Ho and these hex numbers seem to be your hostname. Can you please type "hostname" and tell us what is outputs ? I'd guess your hostname is b8-8d-12-0a-d8-96 OR that the encoding of the hostname is not supported.

comment MAC-address like characters preceding username in Mac OS X prompt
Can you tell us what is the result of "echo $PS1" ? Also, do you have a mention of PS1 in your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile ? (~/ being your home directory)

comment How do I check if my system supports hardware acceleration? Is it on the CPU or motherboard?
You are saying the exact same thing as soandos, just making it much harder to understand. For instance, "This is because hardware acceleration is hardware. Hence the name. It's not software.". It is ALSO software, as without the software to use it, it is useless. If someone could use you know, the real words, like "drivers", "GPU", "CPU", etc...

comment SVN on Windows: how to make it English
I assumed he used svn under Cygwin, which supports "export".

comment Create multiple zip files that are not dependent on each other?
You may be right, but you answer doesn't seem to follow the SE standards here. Quoting the FAQ, "Use your downvotes whenever you encounter an egregiously sloppy, no-effort-expended post". You don't give any explanation, call the poster "boss", use capitals, etc. I didn't meant to upset you, but please don't use rude words or get upset for this.

comment Create a user account under the root in linux
I'm sorry, but how is anyone supposed to understand anything from this ? What is a user having permission ? On what ? The root home (/root) ? The system's root (/) ? What does "cannot share data" mean ? If the users have permissions on either /root or /, they can share data anyway. Maybe you could try to draw a sketch, or correct your grammar.

comment How to map key ~ to `?
You can know the name of a key using 'xbindkeys -k' ; "enter" is Mod2 + Return here, for instance.

comment Networking Software connecting mac to pc
What are you calling "Connecting" ? Transfering files ? That's SMB job (SAMBA under linux, Network Shares under Windows, Connect to server under OSX). If you are talking about network configuration (IP, DNS, etc.) that's DHCP's job (your router should handle that). Be more specific.

comment How to map key ~ to `?
~ is your home directory, I'm not sure you'd want to remove this particular key. Use modifiers for that, for instance I use ctrl-alt-t to open a new terminal window. That's the very purpose of modifiers.

comment scp to remote server with sudo
@Doug: Note that /tmp could be in RAM or in / mounting point, and not necessarily large enough to host big files.
