Question Linux Revision Thread.


I have been using Linux for over two years now and find that I forget basic commands etc., every few months and need to revise. Sometimes, in an emergency this can be a drawback.

Do you find the need to revise Linux basics every few months or so ? How often do you do this revision ?

When one forgets the basic commands then one almost feels like a newbie.

No, I don't forget my basics - I need them for a living :}

And for the more complex scenarios I use little files "per
command" in which I store examples of usage ...

mmmmmmmm external storage (media memory backup)

how many times you have to repeat something and how and when you forget it when you don't use it are related to how much you use your brain. If you know and do alot of new processes
or just do a great volume of processes then memory comes under preasure for space and data not needed at the moment gets swaped out by your internal kswapd. If you don't use swap files like tink
reload is a problem. but pointless review will just cause you to forget something else you use more.

I don't need linux for a living and hence other than those few commands that I use regularly, the rest I forget over a period of a few weeks.

The little files per command seems like a really good idea. Wish I had thought of that earlier or even a Linux learning Log Book would have been a good idea for revision later on.

No need to review something that is used more. It is those that are not used often that need the review.

Here is a great idea that occured to me. Save all the topics that I have started at Linuxquestions.org in a file and burn those pages to a CD !! This will also help the revision process !!
