comment No network on freshly installed Debian
Also, ifconfig is /sbin/ifconfig which isn't in a user's PATH on Debian. You will need to call it with the full path as a user.

Very nice answer. Does all this work the same way in Gnome 2 & 3?

comment Does running commands verbosely make them slower?
Did you try to time e.g. tar xvf file.tar > /dev/null vs. tar xf file.tar? Redirecting to /dev/null should take your terminal out of this.

comment In bash, how do I escape an exclamation mark?
@Jann: You are 100% right on this, but I think the issue is here is the one with so many questions on superuser: Do we answer the question to the point, or do we help people solve their specific problem. I think both ways can be useful, and this was looking for help on a specific issue.

comment Perform a math operation on all numbers in a file
This is more complicated than your question made it seem. While looking around I came across issociate.de/board/post/461416/Math_in_sed/…, but it needs some adijustments for your case. Since CSS can contain simple calculations you could just replace ps by *0.5px for the time being: sed 's/px/\*0\.5px/g'.
