My main interest is computers. I'm a Gentoo Linux user since 2004. I'm also interested in mathematics, physics and in environmental issues.

I forgot to say that despite that error message XChat is working great anyway. I don't think I need plugins at all.

comment Creating numerous directories using mkdir
@rahmu: I think one should only consider if jhonathan's answer fixes the problem with the OP's shell (bash), not necessarily with others.

comment “ls -lh” reports total size less than sum of individual sizes
The coreutils documentation says that the -s/--size option "Print the disk allocation of each file to the left of the file name. This is the amount of disk space used by the file, which is usually a bit more than the file's size, but it can be less if the file has holes." The -l option of course prints the size, too.
