comment How to download a large S3 object from the command line much faster than s3cmd
This is not a link-only answer. I provide an alternative command line solution and provide an explanation of why. The link is not required to understand.

comment External HD makes scraping sound when idle. How to disable it?
The sounds continue after the drive is ejected from my Mac, so it can't be a high level service. My red WD drives don't make the noise.

comment How to rollback a single file backed up with rsync?
Please provide the full rsync command line you use when you back up. Also, I suggest rdiff-backup as an alternative. It is similar, but has better incremental support.

comment Linux, find all files matching pattern and delete
To handle files with spaces: find . -type f -regex ".*_.*" -print0 | xargs -0 rm -f, but then it still doesn't handler directories

comment How to increase the cpu utilisation of a process in windows 8
I'm not sure if that includes swap, but I doubt it. Your app is using a reasonable 1GB out of 6GB. Do you happen to be analyzing a large file? Perhaps the code is seeking back and forth across the file instead of reading it sequentially?

comment connect to a serial device via TCP socket
From a C point of view, socat acting as a server calls socket(), bind(), listen() and then accept(). The client cannot do that too. It calls socket() then connect(). I get the feeling both programs are attempting to be the server. Can you tell us more about your software?

comment connect to a serial device via TCP socket
It sounds like your software is also trying to listen on the port.
