comment How can I discard file change from fugitives status window?
If that's undocumented it could be construed unsafe. Wouldn't it be tough to find out you clobbered your local changes because of an undocumented magic keystroke?

comment In modern webbrowsers is there any point in putting www infront of a url that uses it?
@Celeritas oh joy. Go file some bugs at mozilla. Really, I suppose it could be construed a security issue to open a different link from what the user clicked. Meh.

@Celeritas the first link is dead. If you get redirected, it's your browser doing you "favours"

comment Linux sort all data in memory
@KevinCox You can just on-the-fly resize. On my systems I have sometimes done mount -o remount,size=24g /tmp - and voila :) You can also size back down (assuming you free the space first)

comment what's meaning of the following linux script
It's good that you ask before just running it. However, man add-apt-repository or googling node.js chris lea will tell you more than enough

comment Vim - Adding empty line between lines
Precisely. I usually look for shorthands like :%norm o but it turns out this doesn't work as intended in the case of o. +1

comment utility “less” takes high cpu
can you supply more details? are you viewing large files? Does the file have long lines? What options (-S? -R?) Is there a .lessrc? Are you showing line numbers? Which version of coreutils is this? What does type less say? What are the locale settings (try LANG=C less?) What is the terminal emulator? Are you working remotely (ssh/screen/tmux?) etc. etc.

comment Is backwards redirection the same as a pipe?
What about... sort *? No useless use of cat, no useless use of indirection, shortest to type, easiest to think of, and I believe GNU sort will treat you to scalability optimizations for very large files (not so sure about that - half remembering something there)
