    lsof stands for "List Open Files," and as the name implies, it's a command-line tool in Linux that provides a detailed list of all open files on the system. Open files in this context refer to any type of file, including regular files, directories, sockets, pipes, and more. The information...

    The Vim Text Editor

    Writing this I came across some commands that I didn't know existed. For instance :g/pattern/d is pretty cool! I'm gonna try to remember this exists lol. Also, why would you type ":wq Enter" when "ZZ" does the same thing?

    Install Ubuntu Server on Synology NAS

    This one is pretty straight forward - network and everything else works right out of the box. I chose the 'server' version because I won't be connecting with this looking for any UI, i'll mainly be running scripts with cron and playing around with this guy. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube...

    Switching from Mint to Arch

    Should just be able to sudo pacman -S vim after install Edit: Ohhh i gotcha - you mean during the install when you're in the chrooted /mnt. You can always 'exit' and edit w/ vim outside the chroot, then re-chroot in there without rebooting or anything.

    Switching from Mint to Arch

    Hm? Shell or terminal application? Either would be available in both mint and arch. I haven't used arch on anything, but i'm thinking the only real difference would be the package management?

    Piping and Redirecting Output in the Linux Terminal

    You probably should put quotes around `.txt`, but it works without them in this case. If you had any files in that directory that ended in .txt you should see them with that command.

    Linux user groups (LUGs): There's no central listing for them anymore seems like?

    A couple of things off the top of my head .. you'd have to be signed in here to submit one, it'd need to be approved and i'm thinking it'd "run out" after 6 months and get de-listed unless the submitter re-ups.
