comment Convert PDF with embedded fonts to EMF for PowerPoint
I'm really looking for a scaleable vector WMF, not a raster PNG, so IguanaTex doesn't seem to fit my requirements. The standalone class is nice for its cropping, but not that different from calling pstoedit manually. On my system, the code you gave results in a message No output format specified (-f option) and format could not be uniquely deduced from suffix .wmf of output file followed by a list of supported formats which lacks wmf but contains emf. Using that instead, I get an EMF file which refers to fonts like CIWQJE+CMMI10. Won't work without the fonts in question.

comment How can I achieve “Git”-like update management for Linux?
@ignis: I've recently encountered an inconsistent and non-recoverable Btrfs despite a RAID 5 underneath, and heard about two more instances at work. So I wouldn't lightly disregard those warnings about it not being ready for production use. I didn't want to beleive it myself before I encountered it. Might have been due to bad RAM, perhaps, which is one of the reasons why ZFS people strongly advise the use of ECC memory. I guess the same might apply to Btrfs.

comment How can I achieve “Git”-like update management for Linux?
Regarding Btrfs/ZFS: I've recentry encountered an inconsistent Btrfs system, which was beyond repair. Might be due to sporadic RAM errors. ZFS people in particular make a strong case for not using their FS on non-ECC hardware. Which might make it unusable on most consumer hardware. So keep that in mind when going for COW.

comment How to prevent Excel from modifying the file on exit?
I wonder whether opening them read-only will avoid this problem. Will probably know in a while and try to remember to report back.

comment Command line cp or rsync to crawl drive seeking only specific file types and put them somewhere?
At least on my system I need a closing \; after the target directory. On GNU systems (which the OP doesn't have, so this is for reference only), you might save some overhead by doing … -exec cp -t /mnt/dest {} +. This copies multiple files in one go.
