comment PC version of Google Chrome doesn't recognize “.local” domain name
According to the question, proseek.local is the user's mac, and chrome is having this problem on Windows. Therefore 127.0.0.1 is not the right IP address. .local is a special domain that means use mDNS to resolve the IP address. It is not something you set up on a DNS or DHCP server, it works using multicast messages to ask all the computers on the LAN.

comment How to delete all files in a directory except some?
Oh, you mean any file who's name contains u or p, not any file containing a u or a p. That is correct. You can fix by using egrep -v '^(u|p)$'

@Matteo No it won't. The grep isn't grepping the files, it's grepping the output of the ls command. You're thinking of something like grep -L (u|p)' * | xargs rm where -L means list filenames not containing a match.

@HobbesofCalvin That would delete all files not beginning with u or p, not those beginning with them.

comment How to remove one or all auto-complete text entries in Chrome?
@DMac Macbook pros do not have a delete key. They have a backspace key, but in the US version only, the word "delete" is written on it. It still works as a backspace key, and you still have to use the fn key to get it to work as a delete key.

comment How do you get screen to automatically connect to the current ssh-agent when re-attaching to an existing screen?
"First answer given above" doesn't mean anything as the answers change order as they are voted on etc. Please include the share link from the answer you are referring to, as that won't change.

Wow that is seriously screwed up. These are the UK keyboards: large, small. What does a US large keyboard call the real delete key?

@brandonjp Your terminology is mixed up. The key marked with an arrow like this <-- is backspace, not delete. Delete actually has the word "Delete" written on it (or sometimes just Del on non apple keyboards). Backspace deletes backwards. Delete deletes forwards. Where no delete key is available, Fn-backspace does delete.

@brandonjp Does it have a backspace key? What country is your keyboard from?

Added instructions for mac keyboards with no fn key (like mine) and highlighed all keypresses with consistent style.

Please don't confuse delete and backspace. No keyboard I know contains both fn and delete. fn-backspace means delete.
