Moving on part II

Posted 03-02-2019 at 06:46 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

... and so one day I finally decided that I would just rid myself of any other operating system than Linux on my laptop. I had to have a backup plan though so I downloaded an iso of Windows 10 and copied that onto my external backup. If anything ever happened I could always return lol.

I had made the decision to make the leap, but what would I put on my laptop now that I was fully committed to Linux? I searched and read about dozens, probably hundreds of different Linux distributions,...

Moving

Posted 03-02-2019 at 06:44 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

So now that I have successfully modified my once defunct laptop, I was on a mission to see what else I could do. I started to read blogs and forums and articles and whatever else I could get my hands on. I didn't even know where to begin. At first I thought it would just be cool to get familiar enough with Linux to where I could use it as efficiently as Windows so I could enjoy the best of both worlds on my one computer! This was my intention on first pondering what I would do next. That is,...

Excitement

Posted 03-02-2019 at 06:40 AM by schulidr (An open source user evolution)

Continuing on with my early trials in figuring out where I wanted to go with computers, Linux had piqued my interest enough to the point I was strongly considering making the jump. But I had to be sure! I turned to the one thing I knew I could sacrifice without really giving a shit if I bricked it. “Bricking”, for those how are reading this and may not know, is a term given to things that are rendered useless through means of tinkering and attempts at repairing. And so I started to look around...

This may be my favorite feature on this website! When I first started with Linux all I wanted was a place to write about it that was publicly accessible and free. My intention isn't to get mass followers or anything like that, but instead, have a place to keep all of my thoughts and goals and activities related to Linux and my journey in learning.

I have never been this excited about learning anything in my life. I don't say that because I think I am unique in that fact, but as...

Just something I came up with that is probably not how actual programmers/scripters(?) would advise, specially the parameter/flag thing which is beside the point here.

Code:
if [[ $1 == "v" ]] ; then

ver(){
echo $@
}

else

ver(){
:    # ":" is a "do nothing" command
}

fi

a=10

echo normal output

ver verbose output $a
