comment How to measure average execution time of a script?
Super simple, love it. I also never saw {1..10} before and am baffled that it works, can't find it in the bash manual. Only sad thing is that you don't know the spread of your results (min and max time).

comment Linux raid10 on btrfs
That said, I just tried and btrfs won't let me create a raid10 with 3 devices. Aww. Ah well.

comment Linux raid10 on btrfs
If you have an odd number of disks, in theory you can have mirrored data too, it just means that a single disk's data will be mirrored to multiple other disks. If you mirror at block level (which btrfs does), then that should not be a problem, right?

comment SSL certificate verification failure in Chrome, Heartbleed bug?
On my phone, there is no reference to entrust.net anywhere. Sorry, I can't cut paste the fingerprint but the sha1 starts with 5f and ends with 25

Err what? For me the top cert is from digicert.com, not entrust.net...

I'm beginning to think you don't have any trusted certs in your key chain any more... Start manually adding the ones that you trust :-)

Click on the first cert and see why it's not trusted. It's still trusted on my phone...

Click on the lock next to the https:// and then you can inspect the certificate chain and see which cert is invalid.

comment faster way to mount a remote file system than sshfs?
@Sparhawk there's a difference between throughput and latency. FUSE gives you pretty high latency because it has to check the filesystem state a lot using some pretty inefficient means. arcfour gives you good throughput because the encryption is simpler. In this case latency is most important because that's what causes the editor to be slow at listing and loading files.

comment faster way to mount a remote file system than sshfs?
It's not slow because of the encryption, it's slow because it's FUSE and it keeps checking the file system state.

comment Toggle “ask for password after screensaver/sleep” or the delay in 10.7 using terminal
How are you sure that it's not simply the rebooting that did the trick? Loginwindow handles the screen saver stuff and it's a big ball of nasty that always gets these sorts of bugs, like not reading plist files after login.

comment Easy way of daemonizing in CentOS 5.4
Simply closing stdin and backgrounding works as well: myprog 1<&- &. Now you have a daemon.

Excellent. Copy the data and you're golden.

comment VMWare ESX storage more likely to cause file corruption than installing directly on hard disk?
The only way to know for sure is to run it on a standalone windows and recreate the problem.

comment Which is more efficient: rsync over ssh or rsync to a drive mounted locally via ssh tunnel
If you use openvpn, you're still doing encryption :-) If you don't want to use encryption, simply use rsh instead of ssh. You could also configure SSH to use the none cypher which would still allow you to have strong authentication via keys but wouldn't encrypt traffic.

comment Bash: How to chown of two file extensions in one line?
@triplee: what does -r do on xargs? Darwin's xargs doesn't have that option...
