comment How can I properly create /dev/dvd?
Thanks for all the info. I went to try out some of these rules, but found that my /dev/dvd symlink magically fixed itself sometime in the last few months. I also read in this bug that /dev/dvd's days are numbered. Oh well. For now, your answer seems to give all the info necessary to fix this problem.

comment What are the differences between “md5sum” and “sha256sum”?
For the record, it's somewhat misleading to say SHA is just "newer and 'better'". MD5 is considered utterly cryptographically insecure due to how easy it is to produce collisions (which also makes it arguably less useful for verifying ISOs). MD5 should no longer be used, period, for anything. The Wikipedia page has a good summary of what's wrong with MD5 right now, in practice.

Haha you got me. That's Happy, the cat with the saddest face. That picture was taken at the San Francisco Animal Care & Control shelter, where I sometimes volunteer. Happy has a good home now. ...In case anyone was concerned that it looks like the cat is in prison.

comment ssh: automatically accept keys
Lekensteyn's answer is excellent and correct, but I just wanted to note that since ssh is expecting "yes" and yes outputs "y", you might have had better luck with for h in $SERVER_LIST; do yes yes | ssh $h "uptime"; done (note the extra yes, which tells yes what to say instead of "y").
