My programming and board game hobbies have intersected in the DAIDE project; unfortunately, my work with PowerSpeak takes most of my computer time.

comment How do I tell if a Vim swap file is unmodified and unopen?
I had seen it, but its primary functionality isn't quite what I want. Looking deeper into the source, though, it seems to call another copy of Vim and parse the output to determine the information I need. Is there really no better way?

comment How do I mount a (possibly encrypted) Mac-formatted Iomega zip disk under Debian Linux?
The documentation makes it look perfect, but running it gives me jaztool: not a raw scsi device. Do I need a newer Linux version, or is it just incompatible with an internal IDE zip drive?

Alternatively, you could sort the files after copying them onto the mp3 player: superuser.com/questions/368623/…

comment How do I limit the memory usage of a specific process in linux?
On my system, the key ulimit flag seems to be -v (virtual memory). Setting -m doesn't seem to actually accomplish anything.

comment Unauthorized computer use via keyboard or remote access?
Dell Inspiron has a physical switch on the computer itself that turns the wireless network card completely off. However, it doesn't turn off the ethernet port, and bluetooth might still be an option for wireless attacks.

It might just be password-protected, instead of encryped.
