I'm a software developer specializing in scientific data analysis for NASA satellite-based astrophysics missions. I'm currently working for the THEMIS multi-satellite magnetospheric physics project at the UC Berkeley Space Sciences Lab. Other projects I've worked on include HST/COS, the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph recently installed on the Hubble Space Telescope; and the GALEX, FUSE, ALEXIS, and EUVE Explorer-class satellite missions.

comment Lost file in Linux with the move command
That command would rename it to "..." in whatever directory you were in. So if you cd into that directory and do mv ... ../file.txt you should be able to get it back.

comment Dynamic to static internal IP address (Snow Leopard server)
@Soumya: I voted to move it to superuser.com -- this is more of a general router config question, rather than something specific to a mac.

comment scp error: “Permission denied (publickey). lost connection”
Also, disregard any advice to post all the files under your .ssh directory so we can check them for typos.

Use more v's -- scp -vv or -vvv should give even more verbose log messages.

comment How to dump memory to a file in gdb (osx)? Need to rescue my work
+1 sympathy upvote -- I'm not optimistic about the prospects of recovering your data, given what you've tried already. But it's a legitimate debugging question, clearly written, with pertinent details included: I don't think it deserves to be downvoted!

comment Why is mail from the server not reaching Yahoo users?
@shantanuo: Well, there always the option of setting up an SMTP server in a "better neighborhood" and routing your outgoing mail through it. You're unlikely to convince an operation the size of Yahoo, Gmail, or Hotmail to poke a hole in their filters for you. (If you're a paying customer of cnet.com, they really ought to be working this issue on your behalf!)

I've updated my answer with your additional information. That IP address block has reputation problems...
