comment In Linux, how to get the man page for compiled programs?
@AniDev: i have no mandb on my system. For my above comment, I ran strace on my man command to see if it hit a db, it did not. I can not say for all versions of man whether or not they use one.

comment Unix zip command
I'd suggest defining 'best'. Best compression? Best compatibility with 3rd party tools? Best compatibility with other OSes?

comment DVD/CD burning .zip: is it more reliable, faster, longer lasting to burn a zip of files rather than the files as a folder?
@Rob good point on the filename stuff. There are extensions to the ISO spec, but as extensions, aren't guaranteed.

comment What are some options for connecting one Linux host's filesystem to the other?
I'd suggest looking at setting up NFS for automount as well. Mounts from automount will play less havoc with your setup if the volume you're mounting is unavailable.

comment On unencrypted public wifi, what kind of real danger am I in?
RE: Q3, yes, https is secure, but many times it's just the login data (username/password) is encrypted, but the token (cookie) is not. Firesheep works by stealing this cookie.

comment Linux Device Files
I know what you mean, but I think you mean more like 'Device files have special formatting'. As how they work, they're pretty similar internally, just the formatting is different.
