comment Script to check for files newer than argument, help using -nt
Add a set -x to the top of your script? The output should give you a pretty strong idea about what the problem is.

comment User vs. System Environment Variables: Do System Variables Override User Variables?
When you change variables you often have to completely restart Windows. Changing a variable in the settings will not change running processes. New processes copy the environment from running processes (depending on how they are started), so simply starting a process doesn't mean you get a new environment.

comment How to recover a pairing bluetooth pin code?
It somewhat depends on the specific bluetooth device. A google search for 'remove bluetooth device windows 7' has several potentially useful articles.

comment Why can't I view the arp table on my VPS server?
Some VPS and virtualization technologies do some weird networking voodoo as you suggested. I am curious why you would care about the arp table on a VPS.

comment [root@localhost /]# touch 1 touch: cannot touch ‘1’: No space left on device
Honestly I think you need to acquire a livecd meant for repair your system (e.g. sysresccd.org) and then boot off that and attempt your scanning.

Remove the pairing on the PC also, then you should be able to do the setup as if it was brand new.

Use fsck /dev/mapper/centos-root not fsck / to check the root filesystem.

because it is the default broadcast address on a network - Completely depends on your subnet mask. If you happened to have a /22 mask it would be a perfectly valid address.

comment tripwire should ignore /etc when /etc/ntp.drift is the only change
I suggest that you simply modify your configs so ntp.drift gets stored under /var instead of /etc.

If your drive has an external power adapter like you mentioned, then this shouldn't be an issue.

comment What minimum'allows' should be used in iptables rules?
I found in the log two probes from China - You are somewhat over-reacting to being probed. If you are connected to the Internet, you will be probed, even if waste your time by using obscure ports.
