I'm Danish and I study computer science. I primarily develop for POSIX systems. I think Rust is appealing.

comment How do I make a machine “blank screen” for a period of time (as a penalty) if certain noise levels are reached?
Yes, that makes sense @Hans-ChristophSteiner. But in a way, wouldn't the ambient noise level actually require the kids to yell louder, since they would make up a smaller proportion of the overall noise? That of course would only apply if the existing noise is white or pink or otherwise ignored.

@MichaelKohne: Yes. But it seems that tac will convert to newlines itself, so tr shouldn't be needed

comment Looking for suggestions on how to arrange 7900+ lines of text in Calc
It would probably be easier if you took the text from a source that hadn't already discarded the book/chapter information. What if you have a slightly different edition? The whole system won't work then.

comment Handbrake --stop-at parameter not working as intended
Confusing that you're supposed to put "duration" where it says "unit"! How is "duration" a unit? I wrote "s" and it didn't work.

comment tail -v a file while excluding a list of words
"Skip files whose base name matches any of the file-name globs read from FILE (using wildcard matching as described under --exclude)." So it's for skipping files, not matches

not many people run anti-virus on Unices, and if X is an alternative, I guess the host is running Unix...
