comment What does sed -i '1d' do?
You can also do a "dry run" without the -i to see what happens first, then use -i to actually change the file.

comment How are “/dev” Linux files created?
These are "device nodes". However the ones you mentioned - unlike those associated with disks, keyboard, mice, audio-cards, and other devices - are so-called "pseudo-devices", as they're not "real" devices and only exists in the kernel. It's possible to create new ones, by writing a suitable device-driver and add it to the kernel (eg. a pseudo-device for monitoring some activity on the computer). Before the /dev-directory existed on disk - these days it's a virtual file-system (of type devfs) created by the kernel.

comment What is the difference between * and *.* while copying?
In short, *.* is the MS-DOS/Windows way of doing it, while * is the UNIX/Linux way. In Unix suffix (file-ending, the part after the . - like .txt or .jpg) is optional... In MS-DOS the . (dot) and suffix was required, so to match all files, one used *.* - while to match all text-files, one would use *.txt.

comment Continuing an interrupted `wget` session?
What I'm after isn't necessarily the same server-session (I can see how that'd be difficult), but rather keep going... ie. not downloading what I've already have downloaded, not caring if the page since have changed. My main problem is 1) identifying which pages has already been retrieved, and 2) which pages/links had yet been downloaded and parsed. So basically, if I've downloaded the page already, I'll ignore if it's changed since.

comment Continuing an interrupted `wget` session?
@jimmij I thought that was more for continuing downloading one really large file you'd started? E.g. you're downloading an 4GB ISO-file and gets cut-off midway... then -c let you continue downloading that file where you left off. What I need, is a way to continuing harvesting links and downloading from a site I'm trying to mirror.
