comment A command before every bash command
True; and the difference between that and the next prompt's current time is the run-time (minus typing time, of course - pasting is your friend here). No key reassignments necessary.

No need to all pile onto a new user. Politeness from old users helps, too.

comment Setting up Multiple Routers (as Hardware Firewalls) behind a Home Router
It can be useful to run WiFi on a router next to the internet and provide a second router to route ethernet to your local computers. That would protect the wired computers from anyone on the WiFi while allowing the wired computers to communicate with each other. Providing a router for each computer will block them from communicating with each other without explicitly setting them up to allow it. Neither configuration will reduce the load on the gateway router.

comment When updating your Mac OS X from 10.5 to 10.6 do you need to reinstall and reconfigure all of your software from 10.5?
(Anecdata): Mostly you won't have to. A few apps and some low-level things like prefpanes and extensions needed some tweaking, usually by upgrading to SL-compatible version. I followed snowleopard.wikidot.com for a while until I was comfortable that my gotta-have software was compatible (or there was a SL-compatible version) before I made the jump. I downloaded the 10.6.2 combo update before I did the OS update and applied it immediately after the update finished. I'm happy with the results on 2 iMacs and a Macbook.

comment Parameters for selection of Operating system, memory and processor for embedded system?
A client once selected an OS for his project before I was brought on or given a chance to comment. It lacked a basic inter-thread messaging capability which we needed so I had to divert some attention to implementing one before I could really get started. He paid more for that OS than some other, perfectly adequate ones, and paid me to make something one of the others would have included. Think about the OS facilities you need or want to support your design; that may guide your choices.
