comment Why might a partition show up in `mount` but not `df`?
Nope and nope. Full output of df and mount.

comment How can I change the permissions on WinSxS?
I need to move it because it's on a small partition on a small SSD most of whose space is given to Linux. I am actually running out of space. I said I really need to move it and I do. I said I am aware of the issues and I am. You are not being very helpful.

comment Is it safe to convert this partition table from GPT to MBR?
It's not the same question! By analogy the initial question is "why am I sick?" and the final question is "will this particular medication kill me?" I understand that you're trying to de-clutter the site, but it seems to me entirely reasonable to keep them apart.

comment Can I have multiple views of spreadsheet data which extract and sort from a larger set?
This is an actual problem. I have data analogous to this. I tried googling but got nowhere, although now CallumDS33 has mentioned pivot tables, so maybe that'll work.

comment Why doesn't /tmp get emptied when symlinked?
/tmp is not mentioned in fstab, doesn't that mean it's part of the normal filesystem?

comment How can I measure disk writes per file/program over a long period of time
atop looks good but when I run it, it starts with statistics since boot but then a few seconds later this is replaced with more recent data. How can I make it stay on the since-boot data? Thanks

comment Why am I getting EACCESS writing to a chmod 777 directory?
Doesn't look like libselinnux-utils is either installed or available. I'm using Kubuntu 14.10. libselinux1 is installed.

comment How can I stop my laptop waking from suspend as the lid is closed?
Also, sometimes the lid is already fully down before the shutdown has happened. And even if it is a case of bounce, the question is then "how do I make my sleep/resume process bounce-tolerant?"

comment How can I stop my laptop waking from suspend as the lid is closed?
It sometimes happens ten seconds or so after the lid has closed. This makes me want to rule out bouncing.

comment Is it possible to restore a wiped MBR partition table on a machine that has not been rebooted?
This worked perfectly. Very clever.

comment Is it possible to restore a wiped MBR partition table on a machine that has not been rebooted?
Isn't there a way to search through the rest of the disk to find something that looks like the beginning of an ext4 section and infer the partition table from that?

comment Why does this gpg command in a script behave differently when it's pasted into a shell?
Thanks. I used $@ instead of "$@", won't your way pass both arguments as one token?

comment Why does this gpg command in a script behave differently when it's pasted into a shell?
I have a feeling this is a totally separate problem, but this version seems to hang gpg. Have you actually tried runing it?

I'm running the script and the copy-pasted line from the same shell.
