comment Should I plug my mouse into a USB 3.0 port?
It is a good point that the mouse isn't even going to use USB 3 even if connected to such a port. I would just like to add to that by saying that it's likely to not even use USB 2; the USB controller in a mouse isn't likely to support anything beyond USB 1.1.

comment I accidentally put a space in my path then moved lots of files - where are they?
That is indeed what I would have expected to have happened on the first run as well. Something else must have changed since the first time you ran the script. Does it look exactly the same? Did you have any environment variables set (like, say, an outside setting of destDIR), or some other process state changed?

Hmm. I can't really see what else might have happened, given the appearance of the script. You may want to create a dummy file in your source directory and run the script on only that files, adding the -i and -v flags to mv. -v will let you see what exactly mv does with it.

@mr.cooper: I meant the system's root directory, not the root directory of those external drives.

@mr.cooper: Did you run this script as root?

@mr.cooper: That's a bit strange, because I didn't. Oh well.

As an aside, you could have probably run this simpler command instead: mv /Volumes/MCOOPER/data/run{1..6000}.mat /Volumes/MCOOPER2/data. The caveat possibly being a too long command-list, but I don't think that should be a problem on modern systems.

@devnull: Yes, I actually just realized. But in that case, there would be only one argument to mv and the files should have been left untouched, so there's clearly something else to it.

comment How is IPv6 stateless autoconfiguration supposed to be used?
@MichaelHampton: RFC 5569, which details 6rd, specifically allows for 64-bit prefixes, so the ISP doesn't seem to be in error for using it. It would be hard to argue with them that they are in the wrong without some specification to cite. Is there any established praxis or specification that discourages or disallows smaller subnets than 64 bits? Is there any rationale somewhere that I can read for why having each physical link being a /64 subnet "isn't a waste"?
