comment I accidentally typed password into bash command line
Also: if at all possible, do not put ssh keys on remote hosts. Keep them on your client systems (ideally, one per device), and use agent forwarding as necessary.

comment How can I make a FLAC+cue from multiple FLAC files?
Although note that this will include joined.flac in your cue file, which you probably do not want.

comment Fix hard disk errors using Fedora live cd
@MichaelHampton If the filesystem is damaged and you want to run fsck, you don't want to mount it anyway. The ntfsprogs package, which contains fsck.ntfs, is part of the default install and included on the livecd. But see my comment to the question about how much use that might actually be.

comment Fix hard disk errors using Fedora live cd
Is this an NTFS filesystem? There is an fsck.ntfs, but it is very limited compared to the native Microsoft tools. Plus, it sounds like you may have a hardware failure far beyond the ability of a filesystem consistency tool to do anything about.

@yrg There probably are, but I'm not aware of them. The nice thing about this particular tool, for someone not comfortable with the command line, is that while the parameters look kind of complicated, the one program handles it all, so no scripting is required. You can look up what each option I used means in the docs — or you can just cut and paste the lines I've given above. (While ExifTool can do things which are destructive to your images, these just read. I promise.)
