This is a terrific answer. I've starred the question just to reference this answer. Thank you!

comment Opened up a USB stick and it looks a bit odd
Notice also the wear on the contacts. It does look like this device has seen usage, i.e. was once a working device (that as you note, has not had pieces removed).

I see now, thank you. I very much appreciate your taking the time to help make the example explicit. Have a terrific week!

comment What does `-n` option in sed do?
Thank you Gordon but your assessment only repeats my observation. In the first two examples sed without -n prints out every line in addition to those lines specifically requested. Thus in that case -n suppresses the printing of every line parsed. However in the third and fourth examples the behaviour is different. In those cases sed without -n does not output the lines twice, thus using -n does not suppress the printing of every line parsed but rather suppresses the printing of lines not changed. I am having difficulty generalizing when the behaviour will be one or the other.

comment Open a text file in cygwin's VIM
Thank you very much! I don't have a cygwin environment to test in right now (happily at home in Linux) but as soon as I have to fight with another Windows machine I will try this. +1 in the meantime. Thanks!

comment How to password protect a folder on Unix/Linux without encryption?
Your first argument is not valid. On modern systems there is no performance penalty for encryption.

This is the Unix way of handling the situation!

comment Vim: how to perform this task every time I open a file?
Cris: The idea would be that once you've converted the files, you would never need to do it again.

You are probably better off using grep -rlIP '[\x0d]' * to find the affected files and running dos2unix on them.

comment How to know which Certificates to leave in my browser, and which to remove
Apparently Firefox has had a patch that would support RFC 6962 for a year now, but it has not been accepted into trunk.
