Is this the RAW format that Canon DSLRs use or the Nikon ones?

comment Monitor visited websites of guest account through any browser
All suggestions here miss the point that URLs are part of the application layer and to propose solving this on just IP/TCP layer doesn't have much in common with what's being asked here.

comment Determinate if a file is already opened
Hah, did you not see me cringe while I was writing that? :) That's exactly what I thought when I asked for a use-case since jumping through such hoops is probably completely avoidable.

comment How to bypass and allow particular sites from squid to iptables
Please update your question instead of adding this as a comment if you can to preserve formatting. And BTW - these are not rules - these are commands. Rules are listed for instance with iptables -vL INPUT -n; iptables -t nat -vL -n

Could you update your answer with this output so that formatting is preserved?

comment Delete a file, from a USB ubuntu boot
Glad you sorted this out. @Jamie - I noticed something you might have missed earlier and thought I'd mention it, so that you don't do it in the future :) sudo echo -n > /some/file - you do realise that only echo will be run as root and the STDOUT of that echo command will be redirected to the /some/file BUT: as your regular user, which may or may not have permissions to write to that file? Good example: sudo echo blah > /etc/somefile

comment SPAMHaus/ CBL Blocking List:: UNIX System (Firewall)
You didn't provide any information that could help us help you. Please define what you mean by 'blocking us'. RBLs can block IPs, subnets, etc. Does it block your public IP address? What's using this IP address, who do you share it with, what services do you have enabled to be accessed on this IP address, and other answers would be helpful here.

comment lvm reporting wrong size after gparted expansion - Ubuntu 14.01
I can't see any attachments - maybe just show the configuration of your volume group, logical volumes, partitioning and free space instead of a screenshot. You could indicate what you currently have and what was your expected result.

In addition to what others have written above, I suggest that you also let us know what exactly is your use case. This would allow us to better understand the problem and either help you get what you need or suggest a more suitable solution.
