comment How to change font-size, number of rows / columns on a terminal
This system is good... but you might want to check to see if your video chip supports KMS (most common in Intel, and ATI, but I won't say it's not in others) if it does you should try enabling it at boot, it will autoresize your VT.

@warren because I dont' think we need tags for every single proper noun. when talking permissions in unix you have to include umask.

comment Downsides of umask 077?
@David yeah most people seem to not be aware of su -c. there are other advantages to sudo but most people don't use them... like limiting what commands can be run... but that's only useful if you do it... I think ubuntu should but they don't.

comment Delete files in a directory that match a regexp, using a Mac terminal
removing terminal tag too.. think the 'terminal' tag should be reserved for questions regarding xterms, VT's and real connected terminals.

comment Delete files in a directory that match a regexp, using a Mac terminal
@phunehehe I think the shell expansion you're doing is weird... and I'd question it's efficiency... I'd also wonder if it has a argument limit... (which is one of the things xargs was written to work around)

comment Delete files in a directory that match a regexp, using a Mac terminal
use rm '{}' + the + is more xargs like behavior or something... really all I remember is that it's more efficient than doing \;.

comment What are the pros and cons of Vim and Emacs?
@phunehehe if I try using nano I end up with a whole bunch of ijkloOah's in my file... until I realize that I can't use those for navigation. I don't use the arrow keys to navigate.
