comment How do I securely store and manage 180 passwords?
Not sure if already mentioned, but KeePass allows for browser integration through plugins: keepass.info/plugins.html I use KeeFox and KeepassDroid, for example.

comment Is Unix not a PC operating system?
The professor continues discussing "Unix variants", so the original UNIX is probably not what he meant.

comment Is Unix not a PC operating system?
When I read the German Wikipedia it says "that is used by one person -- thus, personal". Since almost (?) all modern operating systems support multiple users. And even in the past I used to play computer games where two persons used the keyboard at the same time. Oh well, definitions definitions definitions...

comment How to put fear of God (law) into Wi-Fi hacking neighbors
@gparent in most jurisdictions, you are not potentially exposed to criminal charges because someone is able to use your WiFi. Also, I think in a lot of jurisdictions accessing bad protected WiFi's is not even a crime, but that is a different question. Edit: do note that if you are actively altering/filtering the traffic, the legal situation may change as you are now actively taking part into their usage of the network!

comment Why do we need subnet mask?
@KMC: I do not really get your comment, a CIDR prefix is comparable to a subnet mask and software, thus, often uses either the prefix or the mask, as a matter of taste.

comment Is there a way to see any tar progress per file?
@lzkata you could always ask du to use your preferred blocksize, e.g. du -s --block-size=1000, or just work with plain bytes, e.g. drop the k's from the du and pv calls. Nevertheless, I would expect both to use 1024 unless told otherwise, e.g. the --si switch on du, for example.

comment How to install gcc-3.4 on Ubuntu 11.10
Nevermind my previous comment, this probably requires some self-compilation of the following source package: packages.ubuntu.com/source/hardy/gcc-3.4, which is a hassle. Another option is trying to get the package from the source, gcc.gnu.org/gcc-3.4 (ftp.nluug.nl/mirror/languages/gcc/releases/gcc-3.4.6).
