comment How to remove executable bit recursively from files (not directories)
I've used this technique, but with "-perm +111" added to the find so it only chmod's ones that have the x-bit set: find . -type f -perm +111 -exec chmod -x {} \;

Use a tool like TrueCrypt to make an encrypted disk image; store that image in your cloud provider instead of storing "bare" files.

comment How do I count the total number of words of all files in a directory (and its subdirectories)?
You should probably note that this will give you unexpected results if all the files aren't text files. "find . -type f -name \*.txt -print0" might be better if there are other kinds of files in the directory tree.
