comment Default owner/permissions of created files via VSFTPD
Beware that these are octal values, so local_umask=002 may not give the expected results — you better prefix by a '0' : local_umask=0002 (see man vsftpd.conf).

comment postgresql No space left on device
Same error here, same cause : wrong query. I was trying to CREATE TABLE AS but the SELECT FROM JOIN clause was probably selecting N×N rows or more. The issue was straightforward after printing the output of the SELECT FROM JOIN with a LIMIT 10 clause. So the query is probably the first thing to check when encountering this error.

comment Fastest, surest way to erase a hard drive?
@Bart : using /dev/urandom is waaay slower than /dev/zero. Depending on the level of confidentiality required, I'd rather make several passes alterning between /dev/zero and /dev/one or /dev/zero-one equivalents (with \377, then replacing the \377 by \001, etc.). Not as secure as seven passes of /dev/urandom of course, but it should give some hard time to the guy willing to dig into it.
