    The point of the link was so I didn't have to type a whole bunch about how anti-malware tools check. I'm going to guess you didn't actually read it.

    Since this is in his command history, I'm...

    I would never recommend this. Substitution of special characters or numbers for letters is far too easy. Most password cracking tools have these patterns addressed in their algorithms.

    All this depends on what happens to the UK economy in the wake of the Brexit. It also depends on if this actually occurs (Article 50, I do not believe, has been enacted yet). Then again, even if it...

    If you're looking for the case where the path is greater than 256 then this will work. Open up a terminal session, cd to the directory share and run

    find . -type f | grep -E ".{255,}"

    Not all VPN providers operate in the same manner as Tor in regards to tracking your usages. Ultimately Tor is more of an anonymizer than a VPN. The two concepts are coupled, but not tightly.. as such...

    Yep, easier to put all of that on an external drive. Actually, running iTunes in general off of an external drive is great for smaller storage portables.

    Make sure your shebang shows the proper location for perl. As I recall, you have to install xcode for perl. But, if I do a 'which perl' it shows as /usr/bin/perl

    Also, OS X should use ...

    You're absolutely correct on that. It's got the UI you paid for ;) I've used it a lot, it'll do anything that Ps will, but it's a lot harder to use.

    Yep, many small businesses I deal with will not accept Amex because of their rates. It's a cost of doing business, you simply make the choice if it's worth the gain (potential sales) to you.

    That's actually a paid advertisement. Yep, the search engines are paid, not only for the side links, but also to arrange the order of search returns.

    I won't even buy a non SED drive anymore. They're the same price, and it's simply not worth the significant risks of having unencrypted data around.

    Yea, it's also the fastest method of deleting thousand of files... I've used it (recently) to delete 1.4TB of data... that would have taken days using find/rm ;) and took maybe 2 hours.

    Really, with the amount of data we keep on our digital devices that is, by it's very nature, confidential there is NO valid reason NOT to encrypt.
