@JohnMetta, see the link in the question and funtoo.org/wiki/Keychain. You'll need to install the program.

comment Chmod files to recursively give group same permissions as user
@Mike, just because *nix allows you to treat pretty much everything as a file, doesn't mean that directories actually are files. Even if one were to concede that they are the same, there is a distinct functional difference between changing the permissions of all files in a directory tree and changing the permissions of all files & directories in a directory tree.

comment How to rename files in batch with Unix rename command?
What doesn't work about that command? Are you getting an error? Is it not changing the filenames? Something else?

comment Switch buffers in vim without saving to a currently modified file
your first link is just a redirect from vim.wikia.com to the vimdoc page in the second link. vim.wikia.com/wiki/… may also be of interest.

comment Vim and mouse with ssh from Mac to Linux
The advice on that daily vim post is flat out wrong when it comes to the 'term' option. There are very few circumstances where one should be changing that option in Vim instead of making the terminal set the correct value for $TERM. Spectral's comment is right.

comment How can I setup an alias in bash for “sudo vim (filename)” as sim (filename)
Arguments aren't handled in aliases. A function should be used if you need to handle arguments specially (i.e., not just use them exactly as they're given to the alias).
