comment How to get full control of umask/PAM/permissions?
Note that default ACLs do not enforce a maximum set of permissions, they just make those permissions the default. cp -p, scp -p, and copying via Nautilus will still try to make the copy's permissions the same as the file being copied.

comment How to get full control of umask/PAM/permissions?
What behavior do you want? You can set default permissions for new files by using default ACLs. Nautilus will honor the default ACL. See vanemery.com/Linux/ACL/linux-acl.html for an overview and suse.de/~agruen/acl/linux-acls/online for all the details.

comment Why can't I bind to 127.0.0.1 on Mac OS X?
Is there something already listening on port 8080? What does netstat say? e.g. netstat -a -n -f inet | grep '127.0.0.1:8080' or similar.

Sounds like copying with Nautilus is preserving permissions like cp -p or scp -p would.

comment Where can I find a really good guide for BIND9?
I don't think so. Just the softcopy documentation it comes with, plus isc.org/software/dhcp/documentation

comment Why are my log in times taking so long in Linux?
Where are your user accounts stored? Locally in /etc/passwd? LDAP? Kerberos? Active Directory? NIS/YP?

comment Wget a script and run it
Your apt-get install lines? If apt-get would install any extra dependencies, it will ask you, and if it can't it will just exit to be safe. Either add all the dependent packages to the command line arguments, or consider adding -y, e.g. apt-get -y install...

comment AIX swap usage shows ~20%, not even close to maximum load
You also didn't say how much RAM and swap the system had. Try running lsps -s.

comment AIX swap usage shows ~20%, not even close to maximum load
Can you display the VSZ for each process as well as/instead of the SZ? e.g. ps -o pid,ppid,sz,vsz?

comment How to host files from public_html while still preserving security of ~/.ssh/
"Anonymous" is simply wrong. If you are looking for a succinct way to say it, how about "Grant all users search access on your home directory (chmod a+x /home/steve)."
