comment Caps Lock key not working in VMware Player
Thanks. The page you link to seems to deal with the "Fusion" product, not the free "Player". I can't locate that "Send Key" menu in my Player.

comment bash: colorized man page
This: "for name [ [ in [ word ... ] ] ; ] do list ; done" makes more sense now, in color... 8-)

You gotta be kidding me... this is just great! Where is this stuff documented? I looked in the BASH and LESS man pages but could not find the LESS_TERMCAP string.

comment How to echo commands in a bash shell script, but not execute them?
Thanks. This is a good start, but as you mentioned, it does not let me see the actual flow - where in my real script I have a loop over a list of remote hosts.

Thanks. I mentioned that option in my question, but it does not really solve my problem.

comment How to echo commands in a bash shell script, but not execute them?
Thanks. It would surprise me if there is a way, exactly due to the reason you mentioned, but I decided to give it a try anyway. The reason for this is that I am developing a script that moves files across many machines in a network and performs some actions on the remote hosts. I'd like to see a flow of the script before actually committing the changes to the filesystem(s). It would be just as tedious to go over all the remote machines to correct file errors...

comment What is the difference between Firefox in Safe-Mode and Firefox with all extensions disabled?
Thanks. I am using the default theme anyway. I was actually about to play with the profile, but it looks like right now (after a couple of restartings) it behaves fine, so I'll give it a chance, while restoring the addons one by one.

comment Why does Excel 2007 changes the text “HSA”to “HAS”?
On my machine it corrects the string back to ="HAS" as I type it...
