comment rsync over ssh: Can the ssh password be entered at the command line?
You can protect your key file with a password and you can use ssh-agent to open the key for your programming session.

comment rsync over ssh: Can the ssh password be entered at the command line?
Putting passwords in command lines is inherently insecure, because all command lines are public for everyone on your computer (ps -ef). Don't do it.

comment bind <Control> to yet another key in Emacs 23
The more usual approach is to set Caps Lock to Ctrl. That can be done easily with the X11 keyboard option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps". For Windows you have to import a registry key. Emacs is not the only program in which a convenient Ctrl key is useful.

comment Emacs code for resizing frame
True sets only safe variables. But eval is not safe. If you set the option to :all you are in trouble, if you open evil files. Keep it t and answer the question with ! to tell Emacs, that the use of set-frame-size is safe.

comment Emulating a network switch as software on Linux
L2VPN sounds like IPsec over L2TP. A product which implements that is a VPN gateway not a switch. Take a look at Cisco Concentrators or use any other product. Here is a description of various implementations: jacco2.dds.nl/networking/openswan-l2tp.html

comment Using a wireless keyboard (Microsoft wireless desktop 800) with a different receiver than what it was packaged with
I tried to run a Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard and mouse with the internal Bluetooth receiver of a Thinkpad: no chance. It wouldn't be Microsoft if they were not able to make it proprietary.

comment iptables drop fake ip packets
You should consider setting /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/all/rp_filter. See here linuxsecurity.com/content/view/111337/65 for a description.
