comment Are there Putty-like file explorers on Windows?
@Randolf Richardson I think that the 'Unix' tag was only referring to Unix commands. I believe that he is using Windows, but let's wait for an answer..

comment How do I make sure a file stays off my hard drive on OS X?
Good point about swapping. @zvikico could disable dynamic swapping before opening the file though. And there are lots of tablet devices. I am sure that you can find one that offers a decent encryption solution.

What kind of error do you have? Can you create new files?

comment Single Application Linux
If possible, I would like to know why do you want this. From what I understand, you want to remove everything from the OS (console included) just to run your app. The performance gains will be marginal so what is the point of having all that work?

comment What's the maximum typical speed possible with a USB2.0 drive?
Honestly, I don't think a standard has limitations. A standard has a theoretical maximum and the implementation usually caps it. So if you want to know the cause of the slow speed, you have to look at the implementation. In case of flash drives the problem is in the NAND flash and in case of hard drives the problem is in controller logic. Even high speed controllers barely exceed 30MB/s.

comment How do I skip to a specific place in a video using XBMC?
XBMC is a HTPC software so you are not supposed to use it with a mouse. I don't think the progress bar shown in the interface is clickable.

I would help, but we really need to know the Operative System. Windows maybe?

Sorry, I misinterpreted your question. You didn't specify and 30MB/s is the usual speed for flash drives so I thought you were using one.

comment Where is the ~/.eclipse folder in Mac OS X?
The new eclipse installation probably hasn't created the folder yet. That's why you don't see it.

comment bash - record output after program execution
Thanks for the suggestions. So if I run the script without any of these options, everything that goes off the screen is lost forever. Is this correct? I thought that the output could be saved somewhere (for example, bash_history automatically records what I write).

comment How do I type some letters with an overbar?
Well, you need UTF-8 support. What is the output of locale? If it doesn't show LANG=XXXXXX.utf8 then you can't use utf-8 characters

Where exactly do you want to type them? In Microsoft Word? In an email?

comment Change password of encrypted disk image in OS X with Terminal
It's not a tube, it's a pipe. hdiutil expects that you enter your passwords manually. If you want to automate this process you should use expect. Take a look at some Wikipedia examples: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expect#Examples

comment Can you find out the IP SSH-ing your computer?
According to the manpage here: developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/Darwin/Reference/… you should type netstat -n. There is no tcp filtering.

Sorry, but I don't have my mac right now and I am no Automator expert. Maybe you will have more success at apple.stackexchange.com ? This article may also help you: automator.us/examples-08.html
