comment Do hotels block certain ports?
If your email provider offers a web-based option, you should use that.

Some do, some don't. They are not all the same.

comment How to lock the permission of a folder?
Are the other users admin also? Are these files on your local macine or a fileserver? you need to provide more details about where the files are stored and the Windows privileges you and the other users have. Oh, and if you are really paranoid skip the permissions, use encryption.

comment In a batch, how to specify a path that use a volume name instead of a drive letter?
It sounds like your C# tool is pretty stupid then. I would find it very difficult to trust any tool to perform backups that can't handle a simple UNC.

comment Is an external USB3 disk really almost as fast as an internal SATA disk?
My guess is that you should see no difference. USB3 is probably going to have more overhead since it needs to support devices other thing storage. Also consider that aside from flash drives almost no hard disks actually have a USB connection on them. A typical USB hard disk is a SATA disk with a USB-SATA converter in it. That converter could add additional latency and slow things down. So I suspect the answer is that it depends on how well the USB to SATA converter works.

5Gbit/s is the speed of a wire, not the speed of a disk. It seems unlikely that you could saturate the link speed of the USB3, or SATA cable with a single disk.

comment Disk is apparently in use by the system
Why are you trying to format, and then raid? Normally you setup the partition/raid/volume and then the filesystem.

How old are they? Lead acid batteries don't survive long when they don't have a trickle charger attached.

comment General administrator/deploy user permissions on centos
It sure seems like you could expand on this answer a lot more. At least provide links to some relevant documentation or some page/blog with a somewhat useful example.

comment Temporarily block other users from network printer
If you continue to treat this printer as basically a pear to pear setup, without a print server, then there really isn't anything you can do.

comment How do I make subsonic (media server) work with SSL?
Did you setup SSL certificates? After restarting the service, do you see subsonic listening to the SSL port? See netstat -ntlp.

comment How can I find and replace multiple blocks of text in multiple documents all at once?
Sed is great, but you don't have to use a pipe with it. It can edit files in-place as easily.

comment How to reboot Ubuntu in Recovery Mode from SSH terminal shell?
Out of curiosity, why do you think you need to be booted into recovery mode? Couldn't you just adjust the system so it boots a livecd, or mount the virtual disk from another instance?

comment Building debian packages
If he is building a package for internal use only, then he is the local administrator. If he wants to build a package to deploy files to /var/www that is certainly something he is permitted to do, and even somewhat common.
