Grew up on the countryside in Sweden, studied physics in Gothenburg and Waterloo, ON, Canada, worked four years in Germany, followed by two years in Sweden. This past year I've taken time off to work on my own indie game project, to be released later this year.

Private pilot since mid 2013.

Story of my life.

comment Using DD for disk cloning
Not really relevant to the question, but its a neat shell trick using a sub-shell and high (higher than stderr) file descriptors to convey data out of it, +1

comment java from command line over and over
"you can't just take something that wants to be called for a single run via command line and use it as a back-end service without any modification", that's not completely true. It's particularly easy in Java (as opposed to other languages where main is in the global namespace), you just make a wrapper class which calls the main-method with new parameters.

comment delete any .svn folders from a root folder to all its subfolders
sweet! I always used xargs for that, does it also terminate the command, or do I need to add a \; as well if I want more predicates?

comment delete any .svn folders from a root folder to all its subfolders
that should probably be -name and \; right?

comment Open Source Exchange Client?
evolution is accessing exchange through the OWA, if I'm not mistaken, so you're still limited to the OWA function set (i.e., you'll be missing out on some outlook only features)

comment Using DD for disk cloning
I'm aware how dd works, my question was more in the direction of any known problems related to dd when cloning disks (as described by the link), maybe this wasn't very clear. What his answer contains and yours doesn't is "I've never once had any problems with it". I did upvote your answer too, as you did definitely present some interesting points (I like the one about no progress indication).
