Linux Tips

I've been doing a lot of research on USB input devices and have found a lot of resources.  One fellow has a page with a lot of common complaints I've had happen to me over the course of years using Unix and Linux.

Ever cat a binary file and have a strange font confront you.  He's got observations and solutions for a lot of such problems.   BTW the answer to the strange font is that a 0x16 character (Shift Out) was sent to your terminal emulator.  Solution is to blind type an echo command of 0x17 (Shift In) to cancel it.

here are some examples
find /usr/local/fonts -user warwick [RET]
To find all files in the `~/html/' directory tree with an
`.html' extension, and output lines from these files that contain
the string `organic', type:

 find ~/html/ -name '*.html' -exec grep organic '{}' ';' [RET]
NFS information
Play dvd's
Add Raid0 mirroring to single disk system (no reboot)
