comment bash change directory with “shortcuts”
@Cyrus: I missed $CDPATH! .. only (slight) downside is the need for manual editing of the list ... If you'll convert your comment to an answer I'll gladly accept it!

comment sftpd allows file creation, but not overwriting existing files on HP-UX
We've since (more than a year ago) replaced the HPUX servers with newer hardware running linux. .. and the problems have disappeared. My guess "someone" tweaked the sftp daemon settings.. thanks for the tip, I hope others will profit!

comment Prevent Notebook from resuming from Standby while on Battery
@kdb: let's assume 10 hibernations/day over 10 years: that's 36'500 write ops .. well short of what the SSD should be able to handle .. and the OS should not be able to wake from hibernation (not 100% sure here, though)

comment Access User Desktop Files While Using Root
Are you using command line based tools? If yes, look at the 'sudo' and/or 'su' command. Both allow you to obtain root privileges.
