Allright, a blog!

Well, I just couldn't resist. I had to at least check it out and see what there was to offer. So far, looks good. We'll see how it goes from here.

I'm NOT a newbie, and have been using Linux for over 10 years, back when RedHat was still free (and worked quite well on my machines!). That's the only drawback, I really did like RedHat, and Fedora is OK most of the time, but it tends to give me a hard time once in a while. This Fedora kernel seems to be quite stable campared to the others...

for whom?

Posted 03-01-2012 at 11:39 AM by hplc

I've been trying out most of the linux distros and all of the BSD distros from the early years, and today it struck me. Linux and BSD aint "user friendly", they are "absolute"

Despite risking a flame war i cannot help but to compare linux / BSD against the oh so well known microsoft windows, i have no experience at all with Mac, so i leave them out of this blog.

My current experiment consist of a linux based firewall / router distro, behind that...

Show line numbers in VI - Ubuntu Linux/Mac OS X

Posted 03-01-2012 at 11:02 AM by reverend27

From within VI

:set number

To make this behaviour the default:

user@machine:~$ cd ~
user@machine:~$ touch .exrc
user@machiner:~$ vi .exrc

Add the following line to the file:
set number

user@machine:~$ . .exrc
user@machine:~$ vi someTextFile.txt

Basically, if the file .exrc does not exist in your home directory create it.
Open .exrc for editing.
Add the line (w/o quotes)...
