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).

comment Limit program's (Viber for Linux) access only to certain directory
Be very careful not to run Viber as root (after chroot, you will be root unless you change user). Since Viber is a presumably a GUI application, it will also have access to all other visisble windows by default. For the "easiest" separation using virtualization software, I would personally use QEMU (KVM), but others like VirtualBox should work fine too. In other cases, I try to use AppArmor.

comment What is the correct cipher name for RC4 in Chrome?
@gentmatt See iana.org/assignments/tls-parameters/… for a list of all cipher suites. You can ignore the anonymous, export, PSK and KRB5 cipher suites as they are not used. 0xC011 is TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA. Missing RC4 cipher suites in this list are 0xC002,0xC007,0xC00C.

comment What are the Compile time considerations to reduce the size of binary on Linux?
@nyk_mat Is this about the Linux kernel or a program that is intended to run on Linux? In case of the Linux kernel, use make menuconfig and disable what you do not need. For other programs, check whether you can disable features (for autoconf projects, ./configure --disable-FEATURE --without-PACKAGE where FEATURE and PACKAGE have to be replaced. See ./configure --help)

comment bbswitch fails to turn off discrete graphics
@bharat_iyengar Following the README, you see that you might have to update your initial ramdisk. I am not so familiar with Fedora, but according to their wiki, you can run mkinitrd. As Fedora seems to use systemd, they likely use kmod too. Usually you do not need to enable the card on shutdown.

comment Force https performance
Apache does not ship with this module by default, the performance issue that OP is describing is not related to HTTPS on its own, but premature optimization / stupid configuration.

comment Force https performance
Possible duplicate of security.stackexchange.com/q/43376/2630? (which has more context). David, you do not have to use Apache... you can also use nginx which has a very clean configuration syntax. See nginx.org/en/docs/http/converting_rewrite_rules.html if you want to switch.
