comment Transferring a large amount of data between continents
+1 - This approach works well on usenet, and the parity files can repair an astonishing amount of missing data. Downside being the processing time required to split and generate parity files and to parity check and extract files after reciept.

comment How to delete all line except lines containing a word I need?
+1. Nice, didn't know about this. There are also options to "Remove unmarked lines" or "Cut/copy marked lines" that can save some time.

comment Will a processor socket with bent pins still work?
FYI, I have used an AMD FX-55 that had a broken pin with success. The lost pin (2nd from corner IIRC) was responsible for one of the RAM channels, so the PC would only boot with DIMMs in slot 1 & 3 and wouldn't POST with DIMMs in the other channel (slots 2 & 4). Not ideal as the missing RAM channel essentially caused a bottleneck - halving the speed of the computer. :)
