comment Flash Drives - should be formatted NTFS?
Well, if you unplug the drive while it's writing, the FS will be corrupted even without write caching. But then you'll definitely lose data, so I guess it doesn't matter much either way.

comment Disable crontab mail
The second solution is much better, because that way you are still notified of any problems in crontab scripts.

comment Network Diagramming Software, FREE or Open-Source
That looks like a modified version of Dia. But apparently no source is provided, so looks like GPL violation. Also I find it somewhat shady that they do not acknowledge Dia at all :-(. Not your problem of course, so go ahead and use it.

comment How to corrupt a file system
Well, you just have to use enough random blocks :-). Either way, a "collision" is probably more likely than you think, due to the Birthday Paradox : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birthday_Paradox .

comment Multiple login names for a single user in linux using LDAP server authentication
Whoa, nice comment :-). Is there a reason you must do this replacing? If you just always put compat at the beginning and only had sys accounts in /etc/passwd, wouldn't that be the same?

Well, you must never, ever confirm an SSL cert without confirming it independently (over the phone) etc, otherwise SSL is close to worthless. If you keep to that, ARP poisoning is not a problem.
