comment Does “anything man” exist?
I think factotum comes closest, given the context. However Wiktionary says "dated".

@JSBangs: what is the correct term then? Compound word? Compound noun? Idiom?

Embedded clause or dependent clause?

comment What is the word of Spanish or Portuguese origin starting with “a” and meaning enthusiast?
Yes, that's it. Thanks! I have now increased the world's knowledge by adding it to Wiktionary (as a synomym of enthusiast).

@mplungjan 3: you can always assume I have googled before asking such a question. It goes without saying.

comment What are comparative strong points of online dictionaries and other useful reference sites?
I don't agree with statement "Wiktionary is little better than Urban Dictionary". They are two very different things.

It may not mean anything, but Wiktionary has an entry for "no pun intended", but none for "pun intended".

comment “Apache are” or “Apache is”?
@rintaun: don't you mean proper noun (instead of proper name)?
Jun

comment “Apache are” or “Apache is”?
@genesis: "apache2" is the name of the executable (that "top" outputs, for instance "/usr/sbin/apache2 -k start"), not how you refer to the webserver (unless it is specifically about the executable). You refer to the web server as "Apache" or "Apache 2.0" (shorthand for the full name "Apache HTTP Server" or "Apache HTTP Server 2.0")

comment “Apache are” or “Apache is”?
No, it is "Apache", not "apache". And the executable is often named "httpd" (for example, /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd). See for instance Using Apache.

comment What does “bespoke” mean in this context?
@FumbleFingers: no, not at all. It was the UK thingy I was trying to refer to. Perhaps it is only understood as custom-made in the UK?

comment What does “bespoke” mean in this context?
Re: the meaning of bespoke as "custom-made.". Wiktionary lists it as "(UK) Individually or custom made."
