comment Does Fish have a “magic space”?
That's hilarious. The only reason I use sudo !! is because it's faster and more convenient than the "interactive" way.

comment What causes various signals to be sent?
A proper answer to this is going to be epic, and basically replicate the information in the Wikipedia article on the matter, so I'll just point there.

comment Stuck on “grub>” prompt when dual-booting Ubuntu
Can you change your title to more closely resemble your question? It should definitely have something about the grub prompt.

comment Linux: Interface/control 3.5 mm Headphone or Microphone port?
Oh, yeah; it's just the trigger. It's still not a good idea. The way those work is one works is one side is a high voltage and the other side is low; connecting them forces them to the same voltage, and the electronics detects that change. You'd still have better luck with a GPIO board. If you wanted to do it cheaper, you could use an opamp to make a Shmitt trigger that altered the voltage level when a certain amplitude signal is received from the audio. This can be done for a couple of dollars if you already have a soldering iron.
