"A simple script written using very advanced methods" does not sound very probable to me...

comment How to upgrade Fedora Core 3?
depends on how your system is set up. I have different partitions for /, home, media (photos and music) etc etc. In this way if I upgrade I keep things like home and media and documents and just wipe the rest.

Just out of curiosity: what's wrong with the DVD? It's way cleaner, not to mention easier...

comment Find a file in the path without “which”?
Usually updatedb is run daily as a cron job, but yeah, you may have to force it if the file is very recent.

It is not irrelevant at all. Even if he had multiple files called like that locate would also give him the location of the one he wants. assemble.sh is not such a common filename, so he will likely find the file easily (which is what the OP requests).

comment How to start an xterm from Nautilus, running in the folder I'm viewing?
@DarenW: another way to do it, without restarting would have been killall nautilus. This would have killed all the instances of nautilus, which then should have restarted automagically ;)

comment How to time grep commands accurately?
There's probably a smarter answer... but you could duplicate the directory structure, so you won't be dealing with the same file and you won't have caching problems!
