comment Are there good alternative HTTP ports rather than port 80?
IANA defines 591, 8008 and 8080 as http_alt or HTTP Alternate. That's pretty much as official as it gets...

comment Time machine friendly virtual machine (VirtualBox) image files?
This answer sounds interesting, but it would be worth expanding a bit. I can find some pointers on the internet but they all seem to have some sort of issues.

comment Installing pROC in RHEL 6.2 and Rcpp issue
@MSS I don't know exactly what RHEL would come with R 3, but definitely yes, it would be a perfect occasion to upgrade your distro.

comment Choosing between .bashrc, .profile, .bash_profile, etc
My .bashrc outputs quite a lot of stuff, can you comment on that? In particular, where should I put the greeting output?

comment What are the security implications of having submitted password in username field?
I don't understand why this question is flagged as "opinion-based". It clearly asks "What are the security implications" which can be (and is, given at least the accepted answer) backed-up by facts.

comment Why does my mac have page outs when I have inactive memory?
The reason you don't have an answer is probably because the actual answer is "it's a bug". It looks like a pretty frequent problem, and the answer is too often "buy more memory". Of course from a user's perspective it will temporarily alleviate your system, but you're going to hit it again later on (I do with 24GB RAM, I can often see 10GB inactive and the system actively paging out... it only happens less often when I run more RAM-hungry programs).

comment Why does my mac have page outs when I have inactive memory?
This doesn't really answer the question. Page out refers specifically to moving pages from RAM to disk, not from inactive to active, as your link says: "This refers to the amount of information moved between RAM and the Mac's drive". The link also says that "Inactive memory is available for use by another application, just like Free memory", and I can't really see any situation where paging out would be better than using this inactive memory.
