comment umask is being ignored on Gentoo while creating new files
This doesnt explain how when youre in the shell as root with a umask of 022, files are created as if umask were 033...

comment umask is being ignored on Gentoo while creating new files
Are there any filesystem ACLs in place on the directory where youre creating the subdirectories? (getfacl to check)

comment Cannot create file in directory even though it's writable by a group I belong to
Do you have any ACLs on either directory (getfacl to check)? Does either directory have any extended attributes (lsattr to check)? Oh, just noticed this question is almost a year old...

comment websockets , loadbalancers and 64k ports
@vivekv that link only applies to proxies. Use a load balancer, not a proxy (there is a major difference).

comment I am unable to connect to my netbook from any machine on my network until the netbook has pinged it
Grasping at straws here, but is it possible the interface is going into a sleep mode until you send outgoing traffic? Thus while its in sleep mode it doesnt receive incoming packets. A simple way to confirm would be to ping something other than the PC from the netbook (like your router), and then see if the PC can ping the netbook.

comment websockets , loadbalancers and 64k ports
@vivekv where are you getting this 64K max thing from? The only limit you have is for outgoing connections (due to available source ports). You can have 100k incoming connections on a single destination port, linux doesnt care one bit.

comment Anyone else experiencing high rates of Linux server crashes during a leap second day?
I've heard similar reports of fixing this issue as well (such as using date -s). It sounds like the fix just requires setting the system time instead of slewing it (the default ntpd behavior when offset is small). I'm guessing setting the time causes the kernel's internal time-keeping mechanics to reset themselves.

Specify when to pass the option, and also pretty up a bit.

comment How to force a host to not send a broadcast for an IP address in its own subnet?
I would not even mention option 1. RFC-792: If G2 and the host identified by the internet source address of the datagram are on the same network, a redirect message is sent to the host. The redirect message advises the host to send its traffic for network X directly to gateway G2 as this is a shorter path to the destination.

comment How to make folders 00-99 with a single command in Ubuntu?
@Andrew yes I am aware of that, but I prefer to stay with the coding style of whatever I'm replying to.

You can ditch the loop and just do mkdir $(seq -w 0 99). Or use backticks instead of $(), but I can't put backticks in because of serverfault syntax.
