comment Is there a reason why ls does not have a --zero or -0 option
ls -rtz would definitely be useful. Contrast the alternative: superuser.com/a/294164/21402

revised Preserve bash history in multiple terminal windows
Go back to not using -cr, which somehow breaks at shell startup. Sorry.

Explain a bit more. I think the HISTCONTROL setting is broken, though

comment Why are tar archive formats switching to xz compression to replace bzip2 and what about gzip?
@illuminÉ resiliency can't be provided without sacrificing compression ratio. It's an orthogonal problem, and while tools like Parchive exist, for distributing the kernel TCP's error handling does the job just as well.

"speed" makes for a muddled answer, you should refer to compression speed or decompression speed. Neither pixz, pbzip2 or pigz are installed by default (or used by tar without the -I flag), but pixz and pbzip2 speed up compression and decompression and pigz is just for compression.

revised How to Determine the Amount of RAM Slots In Use?
need to use -t memory (implies -t16 -t17) to get enough detail. -t16 only shows maximum capacity. also these run as root
