comment Tired of waiting for www.google-analytics.com — can a browser setting “opt me out”?
This approach has the additional advantage that it works independently of browser settings / browser extensions, so that if you need to use Firefox or IE for some reason, your decision to block Google Analytics will be enforced, too.

comment X11 and Mountain Lion: how to use MacPorts xorg-server?
I'll take a look at this and try to answer here as soon as I get to upgrading my machine. In the meantime, why not try asking on the macports-users list? The packager is likely to read that list.

comment Why is it a lot faster to call rm on a directory than deleting a folder from the GUI (Linux) over SSH
I'm sorry, but I am rather certain that this isn't the point. The question states the times as "couple [of] minutes" and "instantaneously", respectively. This is a far too large difference to be caused just by GUI operations (unless you're on a 386).

comment A virusproof (ransomware…) strategy for backup on a NAS?
I'm afraid your answer misses one key point of that strategy: If you want to provide protection against altering of the backup by malicious software, you need to use different physical media for the old backups. If the user, as in this case, can't guarantee the integrity of the software on their computer, why should write permissions on the NAS be trusted? Malware might just steal the login credentials from a browser's password store or similar.
