comment TeamCity Reuse Configuration
Ahhhh. I missed the idea that you were asking about the # of projects and not how to easily create new projects. I don't think you're going to get around the limit this way and I've not run TeamCity without the Enterprise license, so I don't know the details on how it counts projects. You might be able to create a top level script that you run that automatically runs all subprojects, counting as only one "project". But this is probably not what you are looking for. I have experience with other CI tools, but not enough to guide you to a good option for > 20 projects.

comment Fast Bulk Import of a Large Dataset into MySQL
I'm talking about tens of GB, with lots of indexes. So while not undoable for a single import, since we'll be doing it repeatedly, efficiency counts.

comment What are some good, free “virtual machine” apps?
It is also possible to run VMWare virtual machines/appliances on VirtualBox, giving you access to a large set of prebuilt VMs. You simply need to configure a new machine and then add the VMWare disk image as the hard drive in the VirtualBox configuration. I even have some machines that I run under both. Other details found here: wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuMagazine/HowTo/…

comment Unique Features of bash compared to zsh
How are features that are unique to one or the other subjective? I'm honestly not looking for a flamewar and conceed that familiarity of one or the other is likely a good reason to prefer that shell.

comment Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
I probably should have stuck with just discussing UID, as it is the more relevant item in the question.

comment Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
This is true. The initial login would register as a1 or a2 in /var/log/secure, but subsequent activities get logged as a1 no matter how you log in.

comment Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
Sharing group IDs is not so common, I think, as having multiple users belong to a single group. There is a subtle difference. The key really is in the UID handling. Good point on deleting, though, which I will test out.

comment Multiple *NIX Accounts with Identical UID
Note, this isn't placing users in the same group, it is giving them identical group IDs. So there would be a group a1 with GID 5000 and group a2 with GID 5000. The more critical concept here is the identical UIDs, though, as you could get the group handling as you propose.
