comment how do you loop through a list of deep stacked folders and move all the files to one specific folder in unix?
Something looks wrong about "mv dest src". Also, consider when the filename contains spaces ..

comment How to use faketime at bash?
Read the documentation. The the above, faketime is trying to exec/execute "2000-01-..." which means you are using faketime incorrectly. Refer to the examples in the provide link (or other suitable documentation/man page).

In any case, this is covered in the appropriate shell reference, such as the Bash Reference Manual.

Not programming related. Perhaps try on SuperUsers.

comment What is the reason for rmdir(1) and rm(1) to co-exist?
OT, but, FWIW, this shows interesting (and different) usage: cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-unix-remove-directory

comment SSH via terminal, from Mac to Mac (via home network)
It's off-topic (although arguably "developer tools"), but at least it is a well-enough written question.

Forget about C/sockets. Go grab a [TCP/]IP reference book and start having a good read :)

comment How to know the free space on system login by ssh command?
Look at df ("disk free?"). Although, there will be more suggestions where this question re-incarnated.

comment Blocking Skype using snort and iptables
An "intelligent" packet inspection technique must be used -- it must inspect the actual data to decide what to do. As pointed out, there is no way to separate Skype from normal HTTP/HTTPS traffic without looking into it further -- barring the ability to filter based on other endpoint characteristics. (HTTPS inspection is generally problematic without breaking the implied security through a proxy ;-) In any case, likely better on superusers.

comment How can I copy a file from a Unix server?
While this is tagged C#/VB, I believe this should be asked over at superuser -- removing the "programming language" aspect will reveal different tools/approaches/protocols to make this possible: SMB/NFS, SCP/SFTP/FTP, HTTP/WebDAV, and the list goes on... I would recommend SCP or SFTP myself (via mingw/cygwin/putty, etc.), but...

comment Environment variables won't take effect on Mac OS X
It sounds like the .profile file is not being used. Are you sure it is ~/.profile that is being modified? And the permissions are correct? (I am not sure what shell OS X uses by default, but here is the relevant section in bash.)

rxvt(from mingw)+ssh have worked relatively well for me, if the connection itself reliable.
