comment Secure video chat program as an alternative to Skype
I had a hard time trying to get jitsi (1.0.1) working, and finally gave up after numerous and repeated errors (without a single hint about the reason). Maybe a newer version will work better?

comment How to chmod all directories except files (recursively)?
But how does your command answer the OP's question: set different ACL depending on file / dir? Your command will set ACL regardless if it's a dir or a file

comment WiFi: Does disabling SSID broadcast saves battery(ies)?
+1 Good points. Unfortunately there is no way to reduce the wifi output (since usually the iphone is close to the server, that would help). Hopefully someone will come up with some no SSID broadcast / battery experience?

comment Computer won't start unless power is removed for ~5 minutes
The MB battery maybe be low enough to cause unstable results, while still able to keep the clock running. Honestly I'm not sure, but a low battery can have various effects... Two years is usually the period from which the battery may die. It is very cheap - I wouldn't bother to change it and try.

comment Will the linux “shutdown” command allow a parameter to determine the pause between sending SIGTERM and SIGKILL?
The SIGTERM is not a warning! shutdown sends first a warning text message saying that the host is going down in x minutes, then it issues a SIGTERM, and then after a couple of seconds X, it issues the fatal SIGKILL. The OP, as far I understand his needs, wants to control the X value. This is not what would do the deprecated -t option.

Is this what wants the OP? A delay between the warning and the actual shutdown? Or a delay between SIGTERM (ask gracefully the processes to terminate) and SIGKILL (kill processes immediately)?
