  2. Thanks Chuck, you have made my move over to Linux from years of using windows so easy and simple… your teaching style fits so well with me..

  3. Your videos are amazing! Not only does it show how powerful computing is but how easy it is to get started from beginner and up, thanks alot Chuck! Very Professionally Made Videos

  4. Hello Mr thanks so much for your videos I really like them for the time you took to explain. Now I need your help, please help me to build a VPN to change my location to work online because there are some websites don't accept the country in wich I live. I already build one by using outline and Oceandigital like cloud provider but it'snt work perfectly, When I aske for a payment their system discover that I use a VPN and they block my account

  5. Hi… Please, don't create a regular file with "touch" command! Instead, use bash built-in ">" because "touch" is used to modify the file's timestamp. ">" is a lot more faster. For instance: ">myfile.txt"
    Thanks.

  6. another tip to make it easier to distinguish directories/files (even types of files) in a terminal.
    1. install an app called exa
    2. make an alias using [ alias ls=exa –icons' ] and save it in your terminal script (~/.bashrc if you are using bash)

    type ls now and see how it looks now with new fancy icons right next to the file names

  7. Use -F with ls to make it easier to see what the "file" is, for example directories are appended with /. Better, make it an alias: alias ls="ls -F". I can't remember ever having used here documents on the command line, but they are useful in scripts. You don't need ./ in front of the directory name unless in certain circumstances. It is enough with mv a.text directoryname

  8. I was honestly expecting you would run something like `mkdir -p ./{0..9}/{0..9}/{0..9}/{0..9}/{0..9}/{0..9}` to create a wonderfully messy 10⁶ directories. Or maybe this combined with a touch command to have each directory populated with at least 1 file.
    Anyways, kudos with another nice and energetic video.

  9. DOS had directories, too. So it was definitely Windows being different calling them folders (copying Mac, really)
    All the dos commands, powershell commands and windows api commands still call them directories, too. Only folders in explorer

  10. I used AIX – the IBM implementation of UNIX and fell in love with the environment: piping, SED, AWK and its fiendish one-liners. I wrote several utilities including one grave omission: APL's iota. ./iota goes like this: lptest 1 $2 | nl -v $1 -b a -n ln | cut -f1 >> $3 and you can use it like this: ./iota 1 9 | while read a ; do ; wall please logoff system is due for maintenance ; sleep 10 ; end

    … something like that.

    I haven't touched a machine in almost 10 years so there might be mistakes. Based on iota I can and did filled ANY disk storage with numbered files using lptest until the filesystem reported 0 blocks free. I could control matters using iota so as not to exhaust the number of inodes available. I called this other program fulltank. It does not run automatically since creating the necessary filesystems got trickier and trickier as the disk sizes grew but fulltank NEVER failed to fill all those blocks. Writing EVERY block triggered the bad block relocation code to preempt write failures. Existing files sitting on defects could be detected with sum *. Delete those files and run fulltank to occupy every block and clean up by deleting those fulltank files. I call this the "buang sial" technique.

  11. I'm guessing you hit file system limitations (maybe exhausted the number of inodes). Would be interesting if you tried different ones like xfs, btrfs, etc. and see how far you get on directory counts
