comment Why do some remote desktops services not require that you setup port forwarding?
@FlashDark, what is your use-case? My first thought is Jabber is FOSS; it connects two clients who may be behind firewall / NAT routers. I don't know whether the clients then talk directly or continue through ejabberd, but you might find some useful information in that direction. Also, see what a search on peer-peer server connection returns.

@FlashDark: In the case of Team Viewer, it's their own physical server, and I have to assume, their custom software services to handle logging me (a helper) in and letting my "clients" (helpees) know that I'm online and authenticating each of us when we try to set up a connection, etc., billing services to professional users, etc.

comment How to sort first directories then files etc… when using “ls” in Unix
Old time unix heads (the ones from the pre-GUI age) used to capitalize their folder names and make plain-file names uncapitalized to get that result automagically.

comment Mac OS X applications downloaded from Internet stuck with “circle with diagonal line” icon
I haven't seen that happen. When I do just as I described, I get one app in my Applications folder with it's proper icon showing. I could (but usually don't) drop it on the dock if I want a shortcut there. (I use 10.6; perhaps 10.7 behaves differently?)
