comment Sudo immediately after login asks for password
I don't believe it would be a good thing at all @Zoredache but once you know the mechanism, as others have pointed out, there are ways to circumvent it. I'm sure Tom is fully aware of the implications though.

comment inconsistent behavior of files created by an archive / ssh / tar command
It was just the first step in diagnosing the problem. If you untar the archive on the source system and then use the failing process to send the same stuff to the destination then use md5deep-r on both to get a list of files and checksums to see what's changed.

comment Setting up multiple sites on one IP address
The 1990s called and asked if they could have their ports back. This is just so wrong today, the only real way forward is to use name based vhosts. Additionally, CentOS has SELinux which restricts the ports that httpd can connect to and no, disabling SElinux is not a solution.

He's not trolling there's lots of information about multiple sites on apache here on SF and on the wiser internet. The apache documentation even has examples.

comment SSH and many other programs are not working after chmod -r 755 /etc
You should read this serverfault.com/questions/364677/why-is-chmod-r-777-destructive @HåkanLindqvist is correct. There may be some help in serverfault.com/search?q=repair+777 but it's probably best to reinstall.

comment Can RAID 6 support 3 or more parities?
@JamesHaigh I'm very much a why person too but sometimes the answer to why? is because. Consider Why does the earth go round the sun? Initially we're taught Newtonian mechanics, it works, the maths is relatively simple and for most people who care why, it's good enough (SF). It should be trivial However as our interest in celestial mechanics and mathematical ability increases, we learn the same things can be expressed in Einsteinian physics. The maths and concepts are much harder and more abstract. Then there's quantum mechanics ...

comment Can RAID 6 support 3 or more parities?
@JamesHaigh Your question is (now) more theoretical than practical. Here on SF we deal with the practicalities of managing computing systems, we largely don't care how thy work just that they do as long as you follow these rules... I think your question is interesting but it's not a SF question. Perhaps Theoretical computer Science is a better home.
