    Today's article has you checking disk usage with 'df'...

    I almost forgot to post this. I'm feeling much better, but still lethargic and kinda like I was hit by a truck. Still, the show must go on and there's a new article again today. https://linux-tips.us/how-to-check-disk-usage-with-df/ I do love me some feedback.

    Today's article has you removing directories from the terminal...

    We'll use rmdir for the task, which removes only empty directories. https://linux-tips.us/lets-learn-to-remove-a-directory/ Feedback is always welcome.

    Today's article has you opening Nano at a specific line number...

    This can be a pretty handy trick, saving you time and frustration. Lots of times, an error will tell you which line the error is on, so jumping to that line can save a ton of time, as it'll (hopefully) get you in the general area. It's a trick worth knowing...

    Man, it's amazing...

    We just smashed a spacecraft into an asteroid that was 24 times the distance to the moon - and the craft was moving at 14,000 MPH. Sure, we haven't colonized the moon like we thought we were going to in the 60s, but we've come a long, long ways. Go Science!!!

    Today's article has you learning how to add Ubuntu's default repositories - from the terminal.

    It also explains what they are, why they exist, and what each of the specific repos are for. There's some confusion about them sometimes, so I figured I'd make sure to explain all that stuff. Due to the additional information, it's longer than many other articles and is more heavily formatted...

    Today's article has you using RAR files, for some reason...

    It was in my notes. It gets an article! This is actually the second time .rar files have been the subject of an article, though I really don't expect folks to need this information all that often. https://linux-tips.us/compress-a-file-with-winrar/ It's technically with rar, the opensource...

    Today's article has you messing with the very fabric of time - or changing your timezone, one or the other.

    Most folks set their timezone during installation and never think about it again. I find this most useful when I use a VPS that installed via image file and has the timezone set for the region or the likes. Other than that, it's probably not something you'll deal with - unless you are in the...

    Today's article has you making (taking?) a website screenshot from the terminal...

    Yup. You can take website screenshots from the terminal. It's relatively easy, actually. Also, does one *make* a screenshot - or *take* a screenshot. On one hand, you're making a copy. On the other, it's similar to taking a picture. These are the questions that should keep you up at night...

    Today's article is another one of those 'now you know you can' articles, as you learn to hide the output from wget...

    Not that you necessarily want to hide the output from wget - but that you can. Yes, yes you can. I even show you how to make sure it completes, well it should complete, while it's hidden. https://linux-tips.us/how-to-hide-the-output-from-wget/ Hmm... Feedback is alright.

    Today's article was written in a bit of a rush and not very useful normally. It's about changing your home directory...

    'Snot the best of articles, but it is an article! It's also not something you're going to do often, or at all... In fact, it's probably not something you even want to do... But you can, yes you can. https://linux-tips.us/change-your-home-directory/ I don't need no stinkin' feedback. This was...

    Today's article is just a pointless meta article...

    It had been a minute since I last wrote one. Things have changed since then, so I wrote a new one. I do this from time to time, kinda like the State of the Union addressing. Except not all that much like it - same general idea however. https://linux-tips.us/meta-the-state-of-linux-tips-10/ I...

    Today's article is easy - you're just making symbolic links...

    It's not a hard concept, nor is the syntax difficult, so it's really easy to make symbolic links. Plus, I wanted an easy article to write. https://linux-tips.us/lets-make-a-symbolic-link/ Feedback is awesome.

    Today's article has you searching your .bash_history by date...

    It's not too technical, and I think the directions are clear. The most complicated part is 'grep' and that's not even remotely complicated. https://linux-tips.us/search-for-command-history-by-date/ Feedback is awesome, though this article isn't all that interesting unless one actually wants to...

    If we can avoid politics, Queen Elizabeth II has passed away...

    She was quite the character and ruled for a very, very long time. https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-61585886 So, try avoiding the politics. That may be difficult, but do your best.

    Today's article has you finding the size of a directory...

    It's pretty much aimed at beginners or people who have forgotten and need a reminder of how to do this with du. 'Snot a very complicated article at all. https://linux-tips.us/lets-find-the-size-of-a-directory/ I do love me some feedback.

    Today's article has you converting JPG to PNG files in the terminal...

    It uses ImageMagick again, just like we recently used to resize images. It's a fun little exercise and there are perfectly valid reasons for preferring PNG over JPG. Also, it's not complicated... https://linux-tips.us/how-to-convert-jpg-to-png/ Feedback rocks!

    Today's article has you gathering information about your graphics...

    There are a few ways, including our beloved inxi. I actually just cover three ways, so feel free to add more ways as comments to the article. https://linux-tips.us/find-your-graphics-card-information/ I do love me some feedback. I do make errors!

    Samsung breech impacting US customers.

    I just got this in my inbox: It included a tracking URL at the bottom, so that was snipped. The rest is verbatim. It also included a link to get a free credit report. You can figure that out on your own, if needed. I have faith in you! One of my phones is Samsung. I suspect that's the reason...
