comment Internet coax cable split before the modem
Also, did they actually say "the internet is ready" or "it is internet-ready"? The latter often means that it is suitable for you to be able to order internet and have it work. not that it's necessarily provided.

Sounds to me like you need to provide your own cable modem.

comment Missing segfault output in Linux terminal when running with “&”
An additional consideration in your example is that, because the parent process of segf has exited, its parent has become init. On some systems, init may syslog if it reaps a child which died by signal, but on most it does not; in any case, it has no way to report the failure on the terminal that started the dead process. This is the missing piece in the original question as well: the shell that ran the script has exited, so my_application's parent is init.

comment Macbook restarts when closing lid
The kernel panic isn't something that I (or, likely, anyone who isn't an OS X kernel developer) can easily diagnose; the most I could pull out of it was that it's probably something related to ACPI.

That doesn't appear to be related (discussions.apple.com/message/15717563#15717563) although it's probably worth cleaning up per that URL.

You'll need to check Console.app to see if anything is logged about crashes. As for restoring from backup, that gets state that's in the filesystem but not necessarily state kept elsewhere (and resetting the PMU etc. may also miss things). I don't know if Apple has documented all the details of what pmset changes anywhere.

comment X11 on CentOS VM with OS X Lion client
I am not specifically familiar with the virtualization product you're using (Vagrant) but it sounds like it may not provide a graphics mode or access to Linux virtual consoles. If that's the case, the ssh -Y I mentioned earlier is the only way you'll be able to do this.

comment X11 on CentOS VM with OS X Lion client
That sounds like it has started X11 in a different virtual console but not switched you over to it for some reason (the "hang" is because the server is running in the foreground). Try switching consoles with Ctrl+Alt+Fn (that is, function keys F1, F2, etc.; X11 often starts on F7) until you find the one with the X11 session; the Oracle installer should have a window open there.

Okay, if that didn't configure and launch a display manager, you will then need to run startx to actually launch it; then you can run the installer from within a terminal window. (Linux is not like OS X; there is no launchd configured to autostart X11.)

comment How can I make the linux time function prefix the output of a command insteading of placing the output after the command?
That's more complicated, as the macro doesn't have ready access to the filename you want to echo; you need to replace the make pattern rules. See gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.html#Pattern-Rules for gmake; it's similar for other versions of make although specific details will differ.

That's actually a rather different question, as g++ will send any output (since it only produces output on error) to stderr. It's complex enough that you would want to use a wrapper script. Also, are you thinking of wrapping the (normally nonexistent) output from g++, or the echoed command from make? The latter can't easily be done while echoing the actual command.

comment Mount NFS on a MAC : Could not parse file system specification
I had to use insecure in the export options here because the mount request doesn't come from a (not-really-)"secure" port (defined as one < 1024, which Unixes only allow root to bind() — no such restriction exists on Windows, which makes it largely historical and pointless).

Ah, ok. I wondered if I should comment on that; it is somewhat tricky.
