comment How to use “date” to print tomorrow's day of the week
Yes, thanks - I use similar "find/xargs" commands elsewere too. But in this case I don't want to rely on "mtime", because I sometimes edit/look at the logfiles with "vi".

comment Keep putty from disconnecting from VMware Linux guest when I close my laptop
Not true - this (PuTTY kept connected) worked well for me with PuTTY, VMWare with CentOS 5 and 6 VMs and Windows XP / 32 bit. Now I have Win 7 / 64 bit and can't remember that setting again.
