comment Using screen/Tmux to keep application running
You could always learn to use irssi. It's a configurable terminal IRC client. I use it and I love it.

Why is your swap on an NTFS partition? Why not just use a swap partition?

comment How to uniquely identify a computer in an online survey
I'll be that if you use a different browser, it will work. This is quite often done with fingerprinting like this: panopticlick.eff.org. Related: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/122372/…

If you have a huge directory listing, this could fail because of the number of CMD args.

comment Cleaning current directory rm -r * on unix
+1 It also eliminates the possibility of overflowing the command-line args. IIRC, you can only have 1k bytes for cmd args, so rm * may expand to more than that. Recreating the dir IMHO is the best option (unless you have hardlinks, but that's just dirty).

comment Cleaning current directory rm -r * on unix
You'd probably want to cache pwd. I'm not sure if this would work properly after you delete it. _dir=$(pwd) ; rm -rf "$_dir" && .... Haven't tested it though, so I could be wrong.

I assume you've read the wiki? Also, 2.1 is a very old version of MacBook, so it may be hard to find help with it.

comment Is it worth safely removing devices in Windows Vista and above
@Andy - The main concern is flushing writes to the device. If you haven't written anything to it, you may be ok not "Safely Removing", but it's always safer to do so.

What version of Ubuntu? IIRC, older versions of Ubuntu had a buggy ntfs driver.
