comment accidentally concatenate a large file on a remote system
Well, my system doesn't have less, but it does have more, which I use all the time when I realize I'm dealing with a large file "cat file.txt|more"... guess I should just train myself to use "more file.txt" in all situations though. No real reason to use cat when the terminal is the output.

comment How to scroll up and look at data in GNU screen
@dorelal I usually use the other shortcut ctrl-A, then Esc quickly, to get into copy mode rather than [. It is easier for me to remember.

comment accidentally concatenate a large file on a remote system
I'm using bash. Ctrl+C works if you can get it off before cat finishing processing, but by the time I realize it is super long, cat is no longer running, and it is just my display that has to catch up. So it is not that I have to kill anything, because cat is already no longer running. Ctrl-Z doesn't do anything while the file is outputting.

comment A failed disk (pay for a professional service or SpinRite?)
Having to recover a disk is not pretty, but looks like you made out well. In the future, to prevent having to face this problem down again, make sure you start some sort of backup protocol so even if the drive fails you still have all your data. Some solutions are setting up a raid or signing up for an online automatic backup system like carbonite.com

Thanks! Turned out the answer was "xfs" so I had to use the "xfs_growfs" command

@Jefromi Home servers are perfect superuser material. Server fault is more for professional network administrators. "manage or maintain computers in a professional capacity" serverfault.com/faq .

comment Hardware for 4 Monitors
Note: If a video card has 2 outputs, 1 DVI and 1 VGA, this will NOT work to go to 2 monitors even if you have a VGA->DVI converter. This is because these video cards with multiple types of output are only designed to output to 1 of them at a time. You specifically need a video card with 2 DVI outputs as th3dude suggests.
