comment How can I identify malware containing chrome extensions in Linux?
Just a note, you don't need to disable your extensions one at a time. Disable half of them for a few days, and soon enough you'll have narrowed the field by half (unless you have more than one infected extension).

comment My colleague often shuts down my machine through the LAN - how do I prevent it?
@BlueBerry, I recommend you accept the one that, in your opinion, gives you the most useful advice. The problem you described has a social aspect, so you're not constrained to "accept" a technical solution. It's your choice. (I think my own preference is clear ;-))

It's unfortunate that the highest-voted answer, although confirmed by several mods as being on-topic, is now locked and cannot be upvoted; while the technical solution, which many of us obviously believe to be missing the point, is still open for voting. Just saying.

comment Why is emacs not running (set-face-attribute …) in init.el, even though the rest of the buffer is executed?
Although your init.el is not overwriting it, it could still be having no effect. Perhaps set-face-attribute is a per-buffer property? (This is all from memory). You could try putting the command in a hook that gets executed later.

comment Extract Mobile Numbers from text file Starting with 0300 or 0321. Like 0300-XXXXXXX, 0321-XXXXXXX
If you are on Linux or OS X, use egrep '^03' numbers.txt > mobiles.txt. If you're on Windows, clarify that in your question or download one of the many grep-lookalikes (e.g., grepWin might be able to do it). And read up on regular expressions, they have many uses.

If you'd like to do this in Excel, edit your question to say so specifically. (You say "text file", which is a very different thing). There might be an excel search that'll do it for you (I wouldn't know).

comment How do I perform commands in another folder, without repeating the folder path?
@Olivier, what makes you think brace expansion is not portable? Which shell do you have in mind that does not support it?

comment Bash: can I set Ctrl-Backspace to delete the word backward?
@naught, Control-W is already the default word-erase key on unix terminals. Yeah it conflicts with the Windows/GUI convention, but in fact it came first--by many years. Blame Microsoft!

comment Changing directories in Bash shell with large file names
What is the problem? You have long filenames, fine. The filesystem can handle them.

comment Vim undoing text width formatting
I don't know vim's REs, but if they're perl-style, \w will not match lines that end with punctuation. I think you want \S, which matches any non-space character.

Should that be \&\& on the last line?
