comment Equivalent of `nice` for filesystem IO?
Ah, thanks. Here's what the setpriority manpage says: "When setting a thread into background state the scheduling priority is set to lowest value, disk and network IO are throttled." -- which seems to indicate that disk/network IO are only throttled when something is niced down to 20 (the "background state").

comment Apache mod_deflate not deflating…
D'oh! Thanks. I was mistaking curl's Accept: */* for Accept-encoding. Clearly tinkering with HTTP is the wrong thing to do first-thing monday morning…

comment Linux command line best practices and tips?
Yup, probably half the time I use find it's to fix stupid permission things: chmod 644 $(find . -type f), chmod 755 $(find . -type d)

or just find ... -delete, if your find is so endowed.

I don't use $!, as it's really easy to fat finger, but I like hitting ^[-. (escape-period) to get the same effect.

Yup, I have alias ut="tar xf" – makes extracting archives even easier.

A small note on SSH over port 22: provided you've got a good root password and your users don't have terrible passwords, just running fail2ban (or something similar) is enough to keep out crack attempts. I found it really annoying to keep SSH on another port.

Ah, that looks like what I need. Shame it isn't built in… But I guess I can live. Thanks!
