comment How can I check in bash if a shell is running in interactive mode?
Sometimes, people source it from ~/.bash_profile or ~/.profile which is incorrect since it interferes with the expected behavior Right. What do you think of sourcing ~/.bashrc from ~/.bash_login? As login shell needn't to to be interactive I guess it's incorrect, too.

comment Dynamically blocking excessive HTTP bandwidth use?
QOS is not about blocking. That's why Sam Cogan wrote "should allow you to limit the bandwidth used by bots".

comment Vista x64 - looking for 64bit signed bluetooth drivers for Broadcom BCM2045 chipset
I found this page broadcom.com/support/bluetooth/update.php, with nice tool which detects, downloads and installs the latest version of Broadcom bluetooth drivers. This way I got installed drivers version 6.2.0.8900 dated 2009-04-22 which are 64bit and signed.

comment How can I check if Skype is running and there's an active call taking place?
Thanks for the answer. I know Skype API tracer but I don't see a way how to get information out of it from command line. I don't want to engage in writing anything by myself just to get this simple thing working. They should really make Skype controllable from command line in the first place...

comment Cheap and easy solution for VPN?
OpenVPN is great. If you can embed it in a cheap router it's perfect. Forget about over-over-over-priced cisco.
