comment Clicking on a selected link without using the mouse, using Firefox
If you know you're searching for a link, press the apostrophe-key to enter the links-only quicksearch. Unlike the regular quicksearch it matches nothing but hyperlinks, and pressing enter will immediately open the current selection.

comment Progress Indicator-Falling deck of cards(Bash)
As an aside, aren't you supposed to be able to use variables in the shorter "for i in {1..10}" syntax? I couldn't get "for i in {1..${LEN}}" to work which would've shortened the code somewhat.

comment Why can I ping an IP address but not 'traceroute' it?
It's not about whether the routers between you and the end host block UDP (they almost certainly don't), but the end host isn't responding to the standard UDP method of tracerouting (which is far from uncommon, hence the invention of ICMP and TCP tracerouting). If the end host was reachable but intermediate routers dropped TTL=1 packaged, you'd see a couple of lines with "* * *" and THEN your end host, which (as you said) is probably less than 30 hops away.

Sure, do you know if sdb has a filesystem (has it ever been mounted?)

This is the same as invoking traceroute with the -I flag, although (oddly enough) that would require superuser status.
