comment Understanding pipe in bash
@ajsie: If you don't want to dive into the manpage, there's also grep --help for a quick overview of the arguments accepted.

comment Understanding pipe in bash
@ajsie: If you type it after the program name and before pressing enter, it's an argument. If you type it into the program after it starts running, it's standard input.

comment Understanding pipe in bash
It's worth noting that cat file.txt | grep "foo" can be hundreds of times slower than grep "foo" file.txt.

comment Biometric USB Flash Drive with 10+ Stored Fingerprints

comment How do I get rid of the Start Menu “zombie” icon?
You can use Group Policy settings to remove your name from the start menu. I think this makes the "zombie" go away.

comment Formatting a USB to FAT16 on Moblin or Ubuntu NBR
You should probably be formatting the partition, the the whole thing. After plugging in your USB device and waiting for it to settle, unmount it and then type dmesg. The last lines should show you the partition (ie /dev/sdb1) which was mounted. Format that as root.
