comment OpenSSL x509 Purpose flag “Any Purpose” What is this?
@Falcon - those documents are the immediate context for the certificate, and ultimately define how a human interprets it. There can be no "technical impact" other than "this flag is set" - human interpretation is all.

comment Securing SSH server against bruteforcing
@Paul: I don't use te[l]net on this machine - keep it that way. While you want a telnet client around for various reasons, there's no reason to run a telnet server when you have ssh available. Plaintext passwords over the wire are bad.

comment Save file after forgetting to open as root / sudo vi
Rather than cp/mv and chown etc., you could 'sudo cat tmpfile > realfile && rm -f tmpfile', to keep the ownership and perms of the original but give it new contents.

You do know that you could have used '/otherpartition/bin/mv /otherpartition/bin /' to bring it back, right? Moving /lib, on the other hand ...
