comment Apache undoes my change to User in httpd.conf
Note: technically, php isn't (usually) spawned by Apache, instead php runs inside Apache.

@ParthianShot that would still not do what the poster wanted, which is recursive.

It's probably not grep, but how you call your command. Are you using Command Prompt, or a UNIX-like shell? (bash, zsh, etc)

comment How do I check the internet usage of a particular device in my room?
+1 I was going to say the above, but for dd-wrt. If you got the geek cred enough to set it up, dd-wrt has special tools to send data to nice graphs and such.

comment Is there a way to catch all invokations of hardlink creation and replace them with symbolic links?
Replace system ln? and hope nothing else is running that uses it at that time... wouldn't it be safer to make a local ln and set your PATH to that one? if your make system uses hard coded paths, you're SOL, but at least your system isn't gorked

comment HTTPS for the Asus RT-N12 router's web interface
It's a pain - I put DD-WRT on my Linksys.. it's better than stock Linksys firmware (never saw asus firmware, so can't comment). Seems to be worth it for me, and you can always go back (with some pain) if you need.

Not what you asked, but this router does support DD-WRT which does support HTTPS and other goodies.

comment Website is securely not secure
@user20574 depends. In general, probably not. The cookies would be domain locked. But there are other ways to leak info across domains (or else doubleclick/google wouldn't be worth so much). Again, it depends on how they coded the page.

comment Slow directory removal (rm -rf) on Max OS X
Besides storage type, speed may also depend on filesystem. What filesystem type is the area with the files? bfs or local? a journaling filesystem has more overhead for deletions.

comment Website is securely not secure
A note I'd add here is one of the reasons why this is bad, and is flagged. Suppose you had a login to pandora.com and there is a session cookie sent to .pandora.com that encompasses your login session. If this is also sent during HTTP sessions, your session is now in the clear. You've been taken over. Yes, the server can say "only send this cookie for HTTPS", but you'd have to be a geek and track your server responses to figure this out. So for non-geeks, it will just flag this, though not saying they do a good job saying why this is bad.
