I'm also studying Engineering of Computer Science at the Politecnico di Milano, after enjoying an Erasmus period by the Vrije Universiteit. I have also been a Software Engineer Intern at Google. I moderate Gaming, whine on Twitter and lurk on Youtube.

It should go without saying that the opinions stated by me are my own and not necessarily those of my companies past and future, but apparently it doesn't and while no one asked me to put this disclaimer here, I'll just put it over here with the rest of the fire.

Mah reps, let me show you them.

Maybe some sufficiently privileged third-party process could try and access those pages so they do fault?

yeah, that's why I googled for this question to begin with :)

That doesn't work if escape sequences or color codes are involved; take for example git log --oneline --graph --color=always | cut -c -$COLUMNS

comment How can I apply 45° skew to a selection in GIMP?
I ended up using ImageMagick: copy your selection as a new image; export as foo.png; convert foo.png -shear 45x0 foo_skewed.png; reimport foo_skewed.png into GIMP.

comment User can't list directory even with correct permissions
I thought you only needed x for enumerating folders, rather than reading files therein (so long as you know their name)?
