comment Should I provide Favicon.ico for my website?
Every time some browser requests a favicon, there is a socket connection, a text based send/receive transaction, and all for a tiny file with a useless bit of graphics. That's a waste of resources. There are more resources involved than disk space.

comment Most common Unix/Linux shell
When bash is invoked as sh, it emulates sh so sh scripts will work correctly.
