comment How to debug ~/dotfiles causing gdm login to gnome 3 to fail
I had this problem, I can confirm if for F16 and F17 as well. I removed my 'tmux list-sessions' from my .bash_profile and the problem went resolved. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think the problem is in tmux, or in gnome? THANKS

comment `find` command not available in web host, how to implement a delete based on modification time using other commands?
"I absolutely disagree with your thou shalt never take on it. Best practices are not absolutes," I agree, absolutely! Except for the part about the find recursion. Can't assume that there were no folders, because it's unspecified; and can't guarantee the structure of the backups won't change in the future to add folders. The request was a replacement for the find statement, so I provided one which more closely emulates this. This isn't important in a one-off situation, but say he has many servers, and needs a find replacement for one of them. Gotta keep it same as possible.

I see you didn't read the link... find works recursively (without -maxdepth 1) so it's safe to assume nothing.

Never, ever, ever, ever attempt to parse the output of ls. Use stat if available. mywiki.wooledge.org/ParsingLs Different flavors of stat use different switches, but most of them have printf-like formatting codes available.

comment What's the best way to schedule a command to run, assuring a previous set of commands have completed?
Ah.. So the "signal" isn't actually a signal -- It's an SSH forced command.

Possibly better to change the folder naming convention. Rather than have day0, day1 ... dayN where the number N is "days ago" maybe better to have day_YYYYMMDD format (eg. dest="day_$(date +%Y%m%d)"). You could possibly do both by using symlinks day0 day1 ... dayN to point to the date-based folder names, and changing the symlinks instead of the actual directories.

comment Expert iptables help needed?
@MadHatter regarding your ssh 60 second window, if you keep a "Master" connection open, then all your SSH traffic will reuse the existing connection, which prevents extra connects. Look at the ControlMaster and ControlPath options in ssh.
