comment Does the untarred folder overwrites or appends the contents of the original folder?
@RuiFRibeiro It's arguably clear what he means. I think the question is kinda in the realm of beginner's questions.

Are the two text files CSVs themselves?

comment Do I need to check for file corruption once scp is done?
a little tl;dr to my post: use rsync if you can. It does copy validations for every file after a transaction has finished, so it's a good idea to use that just to be a little safer.

comment Take high quality screenshots of my terminal window
Since it's 300ppi, I'd suggest asking them what the targeted font size is in mm or inches and then simply copy/paste the scaled text from a renderd output, or simply typeset it with TeX. If you need the actual terminal emulator window to be rendered as well (windows frame, etc), consider faking it. Make a close representation in Inkscape and then just use a vector image.

Just increase the font size?

comment Using sftp to Transfer a Directory?
@WhiteWinterWolf it seems to be version dependant whether the -l switch has to be used or not. I remember older versions didn't include -l in -a.

comment How to run commands on user login — that are NOT already running
As a quick side note, I'd suggest using tmux instead of screen, it handles unicode much better.

comment How to run commands on user login — that are NOT already running
@chow I'll do that once I get home from work, essentially you need two wrapper scripts for the two command psdash and kegbot. Instead of the two commands directly.

comment Is it safe to interrupt an upgrade process from Fedora 22 to 23 using dnf?
Well, it turns out it's not safe at all. The upgrade process failed while dnf was in the "cleanup" stage. I'm working on a contingency solution right now.

Beyond my control. Might call it a power failure.

comment How to copy symlinks as symlinks from one machine to another?
@user1779617 It is still kinda unclear what you mean with "slave" and "master", because you seem to use both terms for both server and client interchangeably. If you need to create a symlink on the server, you can do that with SFTP, however depending on the configuration, you might not be able to look outside of the chrooted realm of the SFTP-daemon. Please refer to the man page of sftp (linux.die.net/man/1/sftp)! There is the command symlink specifically for what you seem to need.

comment How to copy symlinks as symlinks from one machine to another?
@user1779617 I'm assuming you mean "client" (slave) and "server" (master). sftp will traverse subdirectories with the -r switch, but not follow symlinks, as it abstracts filesystems. sftp supports creating symlinks on the host. You should at least try downloading just the symlink (when the symlink is ~/etc -> /etc/ do get etc without the trailing /) and see what happens. It depends on the FS of the server and the client. Please edit your original question accordingly!

comment How to copy symlinks as symlinks from one machine to another?
@user1779617 first of all: when you say "move", do you actually mean "move" or "copy"? Because "move" implies deleting the original file (this was also the reason why I've edited your question). Second thing: are you limited to a specific file transfer protocol (like FTP only)? If so, we should discuss it within the scope of that, and the filesystems we're talking about.

+1 for literally having me waiting years before someone comes up with that. Thanks man!

comment Invoke python script through make command
@AnushaReddy I'll do that right when I get back home. In the mean time, I suggest you take a look at gnu.org/software/make/manual/html_node/Foreach-Function.html because what you want to do, is slightly above the scope of a single Makefile. Normally, you put one Makefile into each subdir that needs making, and invoke that one from the root Makefile.

comment Invoke python script through make command
@AnushaReddy Are you sure you want this as Makefile? it seems to me almost as if it would make more sense implementing this as a shellscript...

comment -X flag (X11 Forwarding) does not appear to work in Windows
I'm checking my Windows VM right now. It might be as simple as checking what kind of variables PuTTY sets to get this working. I'll add a reply in a couple hours.

comment -X flag (X11 Forwarding) does not appear to work in Windows
Have you - just to test things - tried the same with PuTTY? If not, I suggest trying with that, and seeing if it works there.
