comment Backing up Firefox bookmarks
Since they're just files, I should be able to back them up along with everything else under ~ and put them back in later. Put it as an answer and if it works, I'll accept it.

comment How Can I Add Unix Commands?
Yes. BTW, "flavor" is a colloquial term not technical a one. To be precise, you are using the Red Hat linux distribution.

comment Testing motherboard SATA controller
Would an enterprise scale IT department have such a device? If not, who would besides chip manufacturers? Maybe OP would have access to one that way?

comment Is there a folder-only based music player for Linux?
I did read your post. You're absolutely right. I made the mistake because I don't listen to much music on my computer and I haven't used rhtyhmbox in ages, sorry. (The music I do have is sorted in directories by album already so that would explain how I was seeing it as directory based.)

comment How can I change to the previous directory instead of going up?
@Randall. I was using bash. It works in ksh and zsh too. By the way, I first learned to program from the 1994 edition of Learning Perl so excuse me while I fanboy a bit. :)

comment Why would you connect a 15-pin VGA connector to a 9-pin DB connector?
We should have an "idle" tag for this type of question like slashdot. :)

comment Installed KDE, now GNOME has kde default cursor
That works inside application windows but not on anything "owned" by the desktop manager, including the window's frame. I found out that this is a known compiz bug.

comment How to enable URL formatting in Firefox 5 Omnibar?
Thanks, I missed that caveat. I didn't want to upgrade to 6 because I run Ubuntu and I find that it's better for my plugins and my peace of mind if I leave firefox to the update manager. And yes, there is always An Extension For That.

In other words, you've confirmed my suspicions -- some developers actually do just throw that in to be annoying. ;-)

@EricR, right you are. I guess I'll remember the rest of the manpage now.

@EricR Why f? Doesn't the f option go up? I don't think I'd want that.

comment (Probably) trivial question about rmdir
Solved by doing rm -r test* but I still want to know what's wrong. :-)
