comment What's the difference between --param=“value” and “--param=value”?
And the shell-script equivalent: printargs(){ local arg; for arg; do echo "$arg"; done; }

comment Why Firefox alert me about HTTPs “Untrusted” Connection on Positivessl - Comodo certificate?
You should not include the root CA. It is no use (it does not help in building a trust path) and enlarges the initial handshake size. Please test your setup with the ssllabs tool I linked above.

comment chmod 700 -R ~ - is it safe?
This GNU coreutils command has the same effect: chmod -R ~ go-rwx,u+rwX. It first removes group and world permissions, then adds read and write to the user and execute to directories. Warning: some files are expected to have an execute bit (like those in ~/bin/ or node_modules/bin/).

comment Why Firefox alert me about HTTPs “Untrusted” Connection on Positivessl - Comodo certificate?
@lito If I'm not mistaken, you should key + cert or pfx, not both. If you have a single file (for pfx) with keys and certs concatenated, you should append the CA bundle to that file. Otherwise, append the file to the cert. I suggest to keep the keys and certs separate anyway so you can set very tigh permissions on the keys.

comment Can I fork a copy command on ReadyNAS SSH?
If rsync gets interrupted, you will still be left with a temporary file. It just helps you by not having to copy existing files over. What you actually need for persistent sessions is GNU screen as poste by Jake.

comment Can I fork a copy command on ReadyNAS SSH?
What do you mean by "fork a cp or mv process"? Usually shell already forks and executes those programs. What is your goal? Resuming copies? See rsync.

comment Openvpn to stream media to Android
@JB0x2D1 Install a server (nginx for example), change its configuration to listen on at least the OpenVPN tun/tap interface (or all addresses). After that, you can access your media via the webservice listening on the OpenVPN server's private IP address. Do not forget to configure permissions appropriately, i.e., the nginx user must be able to read files and descend directories.

comment I accidentally typed password into bash command line
@TNW I got used to typing HISTFILE= instead of unset HISTFILE (which is also a tiny bit longer). There is no specific reason for doing it this way.
