comment Are periods (“.”) valid characters in file or folder names?
Since the period or dot has special meaning in the context of a regex, you would need to escape them whenever using grep, find, or other utility. You might want to stick with the '-' hyphen unless you have some reason for wanting to use a '.'

comment Is it safe to shrink beginning of partition?
+1 @cas. Always backup important data before moving, changing, resizing partitions. One might think this should go without saying, but it doesn't.

comment Running emacsclient with a script
