comment How do I get the size of a Linux or Mac OS X directory from the command-line?
Aha, I didn't know one could accept one's own answer. Now at least people know the question is solved.

comment I've just started to use a new modem, and now all my FTP clients won't work
Meanwhile we also know that port 21 was not blocked, as some FTP commands were going over the wire. But well, it magically somehow solved the problem, so hurrah ;-)

Forwarding port 21 to a machine is for FTP servers. Clients do not need to listen to port 21.

Though your problem has been resolved, I added some more about the router functionality in my answer for the archives.

comment “Broken” directory in OSX - what can I do?
It mounts the disk image, and then by default verifies it. In fact, I guess one could better use hdiutil verify instead (I'll change my answer). But: no need for any of those command line commands if you're trying Disk Utility.

comment Firefox displays garbage characters in lieu of web page
Content-Type, that is, not DOCTYPE. (Glad the detail is appreciated. This still being the SU beta, and thus having many users from SO and SF, I guessed at least some would like to know some background.)

comment What exactly is the console session in RDP?
Beware though: when disconnecting the RDP client, one may in fact logout the console session, killing any running applications. Be sure to select to not log out on closing the RDP client.

comment Blocking pop-up adverts in YouTube videos
Hmmm, I didn't dare to mark my wrong answer a community wiki, as I doubted if I could still delete it then. And now it has been accepted. Funny world. ;-) Let's wait some more time to see if other answers are posted...

comment Blocking pop-up adverts in YouTube videos
By the way: for youtube.com/watch?v=Thhyeop5gW8 disabling Adblock makes YouTube request additional data from ad.doubleclick.net, n4061ad.fr.doubleclick.net, pagead2.googlesyndication.com, googleads.g.doubleclick.net and m1.emea.2mdn.net. With Adblock enabled I don't see the tiny yellow ad-marker below the player controls either.
