comment how to use netstat to show what process is listening on a port
@timpone: I don't know enough about VirtualBox to help you down that path. You can check the process command line to see if it's listed there, or use lsof -p PID and browse the list of open files until you find it.

@timpone: The -p to display the PID is a GNU netstat command whereas OSX uses BSD netstat.

comment Is a full backup the quickest or the longest on restoring
@Izkata: It pretty much is. It's just got the extra fiddly bits around the edges to be more resilient than a single command can be. It's clever and simple.

@MaciejPiechotka: The examples you give for loss events are the same no matter what backup system or type you use. They are also mitigated much the same methods. The second is exactly snapshots, which is why I used the phrasing snapshot in the description. The third resembles snapshots in its final form but is implemented as full+incremental.

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
@ppumkin: The Low Level Format that you're talking about was pretty much non-existent by late '90s for end-users. Some manufacturers do have their own tools which can do something similar (such as Seagate's SeaTools). However they were designed to work with the automagic bad sector recovery of magnetic disks. These days you're not likely to see an old school LLF outside of the factory.

comment Permanently delete files from a flash drive
@ppumkin: I wouldn't trust such "BIOS IMPLEMENTED LOW LEVEL FORMAT"s for flash drives. Flash based media such as flash drives and SSDs have something called "wear-leveling" which happens at the hardware level. How to securely wipe data from such media is still an open question. Physical destruction is the only way to be sure.

comment CAC not working; Chrome gives “error 107”
@this.josh It's worse than that. Not only is it "general public", considering how heavily indexed these sites are in Google, but the posting itself is licensed CC BY-SA 3.0.
