comment Syncing two folders between two Linux workstations (Two different networks)
@goro that's your problem—you need to set up a port-forward in your router to allow external access to your workstation at home, then use your router's public IP address. Unless your home router is a Unix/Linux box, how to do that is probably off-topic here…

comment How can I remove a command from bash completion?
@JeffSchaller @user454038 Depending on the package manager, there might be a way to do this without it breaking on upgrade—e.g., with dpkg you can use dpkg-divert. (You should probably add this to your answer).

comment Why does “head /bin/ls” reset the terminal
@BruceEdiger stty sane doesn't fix tput smacs... but anyway, how to fix it is the other question that the OP linked to. If you want to suggest portable ways to fix it, I suggest posting them as an answer there (if not already present, of course).

comment Syncing two folders between two Linux workstations (Two different networks)
Is the X.X.X.X you're using your home machine's internal IP address? E.g., one that starts with 192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, or 172.16–31.x.x?

revised Case-insensitive search in awk
FYI: case-insensitive means it ignores differences in capitalization, e.g., "aaa" and "AAA" are the same. See, for example, https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/case_insensitive I left both in the question to aid searching.

comment Setting monitor active with HDMI Splitter
I'd guess that the splitter only shows up as one device to the computer, and the splitter determines which display gets the picture... But I'm not sure. If you disconnect the splitter, does that port go away?

@jersten not without searching. But you can find it documented in (for example) the uptime(1) manpage.
