comment Difference between default new file and new directory permissions
@abc it really depends on what the programmer had in mind. Generally, for utilities that create files it is best to not have the execute bit set but require the user to add it explicitly. For utilities that create directories, the execute bit is generally set because that governs whether or not you can cd into it and/or list files within it; something that almost everybody wants by default.

@RobWouters Great idea. Did it in a slightly different way but this shouldn't cause any max arg errors.

comment “Transparent” SATA RAID Controllers
Thank you for the response. Follow up question: would these non-fakeraid controllers still require explicit driver support for common imaging software products such as Norton or Acronis? Ideally, I would like to boot off one of the aforementioned utilities' boot CD and not have to worry about drivers for it to see the RAID volume.
