comment Slow down individual connections passing through a Linux router?
Unfortunately neither Putty (interactive SSH client) nor Filezilla (file transferring SFTP client) set TOS TCP/IP flags. So my firewall cannot differentiate between them.

comment Can I make TCP/IP session to run less than 60 seconds?
If you understand why it enters the TIME_OUT state, then you must understand why this is necessary to prevent other attacks and problems. You can reduce this timeout, but there are other consequences to doing that.

comment Website doesn't work when missing “www”
@jeff: Please tell us the actual problem. "doesn't work" doesn't tell us enough information. Does the hostname resolve to an IP address? Does it connect to the server? etc etc.

comment Website doesn't work when missing “www”
@kbyrd: I don't understand your nit. How is that different from what he wrote? Are you confused about the trailing period? It's supposed to be there, however some DNS servers will automatically add it for you if you forget it. But it's good to put it there just in case.

comment Slow down individual connections passing through a Linux router?
The main problem I have with traffic shaping is that AFAIK there's no wait to distinguish a file upload via SFTP/SCP from an interactive SSH session. I want to prioritize my interactive SSH sessions, but doing that would also prioritize my uploads, defeating the purpose :/

comment Using DD for disk cloning
You already told the way to overcome the third drawback...resize the partitions. Enlarging a partition is generally a safe and fast operation (versus shrinking or moving, which is slow and more dangerous since it's moving data around).

comment Using DD for disk cloning
If you have a disk with bad sectors, you really should be using 'ddrescue' instead of dd. It's much more efficient, and has a much better chance of recovering more data. (Don't get it confused with dd_rescue, which is not as good)

comment Using DD for disk cloning
This is not quite correct. The 'remote_machine' command is missing something, such as > disk_backup.img or |dd of=/dev/sdb or something else, depending on what you want to do. I'm guessing you don't want to dump a disk image to stdout.

I'm not sure what having multiple CPUs/cores has to do with using rsync to copy files?

comment Gitosis setup, fatal error on initial clone of gitosis-admin
You could try gitolite. This is a new project based on the idea of gitosis, but it's actively maintained. gitosis hasn't really been worked on since 2008.
