comment How do I set a user's default .bashrc file?
If you want to set this up proactively, tell the .bashrc file in /etc/skel/ to source, for instance, /etc/defaults/bashrc or whatever file you choose. That still won't prevent users from removing the line in their own .bashrc if they want it gone, but.

comment Why is `--human-readable` needed and not default?
Especially 3) when I pipe the output straight through into sort -n because I'm less interested in quickly seeing the rough size of each directory and more in which subdirectory is taking up disproportionally too much space...

comment Why does linux scan my cdrom on boot?
The "scan" might just be the CD-rom's self-test happening when the driver loads and asks it how it's doing.
