@Imran-UK: In fact I've tried zsh in the past and I do intend on trying it again. I'll look into that. Shukran my friend!

comment Autocomplete server names for SSH and SCP
@Imran-UK: It is known that Ubuntu does not do that sensible thing, under the pretense of security. Apparently the thought is that a malicious entity might, as the user, edit ~/.ssh/config, despite chmod 0600 on the directory. Hey, I wasn't the one who made the decision!

comment How to grep a specific line _and_ the first line of a file?
If that is the case, then I highly suggest that you start a new question and answer it with this answer. It is perfectly fine to answer your own questions on SE, especially in the situation that you mention. Go ahead and link to your new question in a comment on the OP.

Thank you. As per the OP, I know some of the text in the line, but not the line number.

comment `rm` prompt when given more than one file
You are 100% correct about working on other systems. In fact, I do often work on other systems and adding a mental speedbump before the rm command sounds like a great idea. I even added a sleep 1 line for it to sink in.

Thank you, the if was the key. I had a hard time trying to concoct that!

comment `rm` prompt when given more than one file
Thank you. Actually, frequent backups won't help when I'm trying to move a few files that I just created (which is the case). For some reason I see that I've made the same mistake twice, so I'm trying to make making the mistake harder.
