comment Incremental searching with the `less` utility
looks like vim comes with a script for that.. export PAGER=/usr/share/vim/vim71/macros/less.sh or if you google 'vimpager' there is a supposedly better replacement.. git sort of has issues with it because of the terminal escape codes for color, but there might be an easy fix for that...

comment How do I connect a TV with an ethernet connection to a wifi network?
any access point is capable of being a client bridge, most just don't have the settings for it. reflash the device with dd-wrt or openwrt and you'll be able to do whatever you want with it.

run badblocks first, then fsck. fsck will just make things worse if the drive is dying.

comment How do I execute find with GNU xargs to traverse a set of directories?
works fine for me, see my comment. If this still isn't what you want, you are going to have to give a better example that shows what you are really trying to do.

comment Is “Just close popup windows” an adequate security instruction for users?
"Read before you click" in the face of pages that are designed to mislead the user is a bad idea. That sort of implies that the user would actually consider doing what the popup says. I usually say something like "Never listen to anything that is telling or asking you to do anything" If it wants your password, it's a phishing attack, if it wants you to install something, it's a virus.. etc
