comment Sourcing files in ZSH doesn't work
@Rob1NN, there's your problem. Windows editors tend to create files with Windows line endings (CRLF). Notepad++ can create Unix-style files (LF), but it's not the default.

comment Sourcing files in ZSH doesn't work
@Rob1NN, your editor will probably notice that the files are now LF-only and preserve that, but I can't guarantee it since I don't know what editor you're using.

comment Sourcing files in ZSH doesn't work
@Rob1NN, you should ask another question about how you managed to save a file in DOS format. Give details of the editor you used and the exact process by which you split your .zshrc into separate files.

comment scp between two servers not in the same network
@Anko, the problem with using -C here is that the local machine would have to uncompress and recompress the data. Telling tar to do the compression means that the compressed data is passed straight through the pipe without any processing.

comment How can I make windows easier to resize in Xfce?
@Leiaz, I didn't know that. Thanks for the tip, although I'd still like to improve the border grabbing.

comment Running proprietary firmware in virtualized environment, but not in host environment
I don't think you'd get any benefit from this. The firmware runs on the wireless card, not the CPU, and the wireless card is still connected to your physical computer. Loading the firmware from a virtual machine doesn't change the access it has to your computer.

comment How to rename to fixed length
@Sigur, you only need to remove the -n option, which means "don't actually rename anything". The -v option prints the message about each file renamed, which you can keep or remove as you like.

comment Why can Linux show a file name containing character '/'?
@cHao, I'm about 99.9% sure Linux couldn't open a filename with a real / in it (created by manually editing a directory entry on disk), but it might be able to list it, which is all he's doing here.
