comment Windows disk-folder sync utilities
I use rsync for this - it's a very powerful tool with many options, but it's perfectly suited to this task. Here is a guide.

comment Copy files from a numeric range to another folder
Ah, I understand. Yes, {01..39} should produce the desired range in that case.

comment Copy files from a numeric range to another folder
@georg It works fine for me, in bash version 4.3.42 - what shell are you using?

comment How can I rip a DVD-A (DVD-Audio) disc containing music in 5.1 surround sound format?
I should probably point out that I'm on Linux and have been using WINE so far, but would prefer a native solution...

Unfortunately, the links have rotted. I have used DVD Audio Explorer successfully in the past, but I would be interested if anyone knows a different way.

comment How to SSH to and connect back to original network?
It looks like (an old version of) nmap is available in Cydia. That might be your best option, instead of trying to set up a VPN server on the iPhone.

comment How to SSH to and connect back to original network?
So you want to be able to reach devices on the iPhone's local network from your Windows machine? Can you be more specific about what you want to do and why?

It looks like there is an OpenVPN client available for the iPhone in the Apple app store, no need to jailbreak. Here is a guide on how to set it up.

Is there a reason you can't run nmap on machine A directly?

comment “Hunk #1” message after apply a patch
In my experience, the "succeeded" message always means the patch applied correctly. I assume that patch is smart enough to give me an error if there are any issues.

comment Do we really need to check the integrity of downloaded files?
Even with a stable internet connection I still check the hash before and after I burn an image. It only takes a minute and it'll ensure that I don't run into errors during the installation (this is rare, but it has happened to me. Maybe 1% of the time.)

comment How can I get access to a hard drive's contents on a dead laptop?
This is the right answer, IMO. After you copy everything, use it to wipe the drive before you put it back in the machine.

comment How can I get access to a hard drive's contents on a dead laptop?
This is not likely to help if the problem is a bad CPU or memory (or any other problem that isn't the HDD)...

comment Is playing a file from an external HDD considered a “write” to my (boot) SSD?
The OP didn't say anything about streaming video. They don't mention what player they're using, but writing chunks of the file to another hard drive before playing them seems counter-productive - both VLC and mplayer do all their caching in RAM as far as I know (although the browser plugins may save files being streamed from a website).
