comment Moving a File While It's In Use — How Does it work?
"References" are both processes with an open handle to the file and hard links (including the first file name) to the file. The data blocks are not marked free and available for reuse until the reference count goes to zero.

comment How much disk space would take to list every possible UEI-48 or MAC address?
If you're going to store in ASCII, you wouldn't store '0' or '1' for everything, you'd use hex. With 8-bit chars, you cut the expansion from 8:1 to 8:4, or 2. 48-bit address is 12 hex digits; 96 bits with 8bit characters or 84 with seven-bit ASCII. You could put two 48-bit addresses into 21 bytes of storage, even with character encoding.
