comment find: missing argument to `-exec' when using + form of find
Where in the man do you see that? I included the man output on my system in question. For the \; form it is clear that multiple {} are allowed, implying they don't have to be at the end of the command. The + form says the command line is built by appending each selected file name at the end - but I read "the end" here as the end of the string which will ultimately be used to replace the {}. If it was always at the end, why use {}? The text Only one instance of {}' is allowed within the command` imlies that one instance can be anywhere (or else why not restrict it)?

comment How to find out the amount of lines of documents in a folder using shell scripts?
I think brew sloccount hasn't worked for a while because microbrew.org/tools/md5sha1sum/md5sha1sum-0.9.5.tar.gz that the sloccount formula requires hasn't been available for some time.

comment What is a good WLAN ping time on a clean network?
Partly because of curiosity, and partly because it's helpful to diagnose performance issues. FWIW, I included the "host to host" ping as well, which has slightly worse timings and excludes your fanciful theory that routers somehow respond slowly to pings but route packets quickly (unless you also believe that the router is deep inspecting my ICMP packets to other hosts on the network and slowing them down too to make everything consistent).

comment xargs substition of more than one argument
As above, I got the same output already without the tr and -0 (it is not needed here). The issue is that I want it all on one line: line 1 DONE line 2 DONE ...

comment xargs substition of more than one argument
Right, that's why I said "lines are special" not that xargs changes the way it breaks up arguments, but that it does use lines to initially chunk the input into invocations, then proceeds to break up on whitespace as usual.

comment xargs substition of more than one argument
Good point about how xargs is breaking up args, on whitespace boundaries, not line boundaries (although lines are special for arguments like -L and hence implicitly for -I).

comment What's up with port 8080 on my OSX box?
The evidence is pretty compelling, especially given that I do have ANyConnect installed. Too mad there doesn't seem to be any reason cisco is listening on that port...

comment What's up with port 8080 on my OSX box?
OK, this seems plausible, but grepping through everything in /Library/Launch*/*.plist and /System/Library/Launch*/*.plist doesn't turn up any hits for http-alt or 8080. Any way I can list what ports launchd is listening on? Google came up empty (for me, anyway).
