comment Default owner/permissions of created files via VSFTPD
Well, it may not matter for 002 (can't remember my needs at the time), but it should for e.g. 022 (which will be treated as base 10 22) vs 0022. Anyway, it didn't work for me without it…

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.
