SSH is only detected and provided as a hint to Wireshark GTK/QT, not tshark.

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.

Setting HISTFILE= is enough. From bash(1): If unset, the command history is not saved when a shell exits.

comment sshfs mount without compression or encryption
By default, socat TCP-LISTEN listens on all interfaces. To limit to one specific network interface (e.g., localhost), use the ,bind=127.0.0.1 option. To allow multiple connections to the server, add the ,fork option. Making a read-only server? Add -R to the EXEC command. In the end, it will look like this: socat TCP-LISTEN:7777,fork,bind=127.0.0.1 EXEC:'/usr/lib/sftp-server -R' (on Arch Linux, I had to use /usr/lib/ssh/sftp-server instead).

comment Looking for a tool to inspect HTTP data between a mobile phone and AV receiver
If your phone is rooted, I suggest to run tcpdump on it via ssh/adb. Then use wireshark to open the pcap file with the filter http (this assumes that the communication happens over HTTP, not HTTPS or some other protocol).

comment Linux: How can I delete all files whose file name is more than X characters in length?
@Kitsos I did not say faster, but flexible. If you need to post-process the file list, then external programs may be easier than using a find regex. Your bash answer will fail with newlines. Consider a file name names foo\nbar (with an embedded newline). Then the first iteration will read foo and the second one bar. If you had files named foo or bar, then you will lose them, even if the length of foo\nbar is longer than five (seven). Another useful property find is that the -delete options removes empty directories too.

Forking is expensive, this command does not scale up with thousands of file (yes, I have encountered that). The name=$(basename "$file") can be replace with name=${file##*/} (Bash prefix substitution with nothing).
