comment Insert a newline in a perl -e statement?
@quack quixote: thanks for the edit. I tested this solution while logged in over SSH with PuTTY (Windows) to an Ubuntu 9.1 based server. I also inserted print statements before and after the line-break in the Perl one-liner to verify that they were executed. But in any case the other solution is better.

comment Checking whether binary files are the same?
There are programs to check for duplicates (I have now evaluated Comparator Fast, Easy Duplicate Finder and CloneSpy.) and that compare files byte-by-byte without trying to find differences or compute MD5. But most of them are oriented towards eliminating duplicates. Worse they will not show the files that are NOT duplicates (that you want to delete).

comment Checking whether binary files are the same?
How do you define newest? Is it file modification date or does it depend on some content of the files?

comment How do I get classic page search back for Opera 10.5?
Thanks, that is an improvement and can work as a work-around. It takes care of the modalness. One can then scroll a match to the beginning or bottom of the window so it is easier to spot after ESC has been pressed (ESC will result in some amount of scrolling because the bar with the search term disappears).

comment Why is my NTP controlled computer clock two minutes ahead?
I agree with Martin Liversage. The phone service has been used to time astronomical events for at least 20 years. E.g. lunar occultations, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occultation#Occultations_by_the_Moon, or asteroid occultations, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroid_occultation
