comment Filtering for IPs that send a packets of a certain length
I am not sure about what you mean. If I got it right, you'll find it under Statistics->IP addresses after you applied the above filter.

Have you just tried vim? You heard it's going to be slow, but why don't you just give it a try? It won't cost you much.

comment Restore tmux session after reboot
@DominykasMostauskis that command sends key presses to the specified session. It's like entering the session, and inputing those very keys from the keyboard. In this case, you send "~/bin/script" followed by Enter.

comment How to compact VirtualBox's VDI file size?
According to the zerofree Linux utility manpage (manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/natty/man8/zerofree.8.html), zerofree should be better than dd for this job. dd would not been recommended because "it is slow", "it makes the disk image (temporarily) grow to its maximal extent", "it (temporarily) uses all free space on the disk, so other concurrent write actions may fail". Zerofree is available on Ubuntu Linux via apt, or you can compile it yourself.

comment X.509 certificates - expiration and key reuse
I think this does not answer the question at all.

Because no matter how long is that root validity, it is going to expire a day. :)

comment X.509 certificates - expiration and key reuse
There is not a "one practice fits all" solution. Think about a complicated networking system, with plenty of client/server intercommunication that relies on the same certificate root. If you totally replace that root with a new one you are about to introduce a lot of massive work, downtimes and potential issues into your system. If there is no reason to think your CA has been compromised because you did adhere to best security practice - that includes keeping your CA offline and its key in a safe - you just want to extend its validity time by renewing. Really.

revised How to install .NET 4 on Windows XP without getting error 0x8024402F from Windows Update?
Putting the error code into the question subject rather than in the body helps a lot others to find it and it's way more specific than the quite generic 'breaking it'.
