comment How to change “From:” field for emails from Cron?
This isn't actually true--at least not in many cases. On my system, for instance, it is only sent from 'user', not 'user@domain'. It is the responsibility of the MTA to add the local domain name. This is significant in some cases (such as mine) where my MTA (for reasons too complicated and boring to describe) is not adding the domain name.

comment How to change “From:” field for emails from Cron?
Where "modern" means what? This is not supported by the most recent version of cron in Debian unstable (3.0pl1-124) from what I can see in the changelog or the documentation.

comment debian 6 preseeding keeps asking “Write the changes to disks and configure LVM?”
d-i partman-lvm/confirm_nooverwrite boolean true is the only line that was missing from my preseed file, and adding it took care of the issue for me. Thanks.

comment Trouble with backslash characters and rsyslog writing to postgres
I tried your encode() suggestion, but the input is escape-processed too soon. The end result is the same. standard_conforming_strings seems to be a reasonable solution. It's unfortunate that with rsyslog I can't just set that as a session variable. But in my case, it should work to make it system-wide without much fallout. Thanks for the suggestions.
