I am a graduate student studying statistics that loves to use Linux and open source software.

I spend some time writing useless R packages on Github.

comment How do I make `ls` show file sizes in megabytes?
@MichaelKjörling I don't see it as a bad answer (although I didn't upvote). Sometimes the OP doesn't word a question exactly as they should so it was possible that they just wanted human readable output and instead phrased that as "in MB".

comment Failure to recover grub2 after installing arch-linux
Although this helps them avoid installing grub in the future it doesn't really answer the question so it seems better fit for a comment rather than an answer.

comment Is there a way to get the min, max, median, and average of a list of numbers in a single command?
(+1) I love R. I can't recommend it enough.

comment how to forbid a command without a permission
And it seems that part of psusi's answer is that you shouldn't be speeding too fast on that freeway. Slow down and make sure what you're going to do is what you want to do.

comment Script that checks and saves text to file
I wouldn't necessarily say that it's "needless to say" since it certainly smells like it could be homework.

comment Which linux distro is based on Arch, runs LXDE and out of the box ready to use?
@bdowning That is one reason to choose Arch but it would be foolish to say it's the only reason to choose Arch. It would be good for the OP to mention why they want the distro to be based on Arch though. Is it the wiki that they like? The fact that it's rolling release? The community? These would be good things to know to help suggest an alternative.
