comment Where does ubuntu 14.04 drop core files?
@djf the OP didn't specify what program was causing core dumps. It may not be programmers code. It may be Unity for all we know.

comment What connectors do USB 3.0 devices use?
I've got a hard drive that uses that cable. I think you can use a normal A cable, BUT you fallback to USB2.0 speeds.

comment Are there any tricks with Xfinity WiFi Authentication
This may make sense if AT&T auto-authenticates to say attwifi, since they're the same company. But this is a TMobile phone connecting to Comcast unexpectedly. Also, as stated in my OQ, i DO need to re-auth on my networks, just not Comcast. So, for it to do what you think, TMobile would have to reprogram iOS to re-auth on all networks EXCEPT Comcast, which is unlikely to be something they'd pay money for, especially since they have their own Cellspot Router and Passpoint system coming up.

As I said before, You need to add the G flag (on Mac OS X) for it to colonize.

comment Highlight bash output in iTerm 2?
what do you expect to be colorized? try ls -G. It seems that solarized is a set of color schemes. IT doesn't make your commands do colorization. You may need to check your vim settings as well

comment Command “find” -exec replacing string
does mogrify have a -o flag for output location? would simplify code a bit. also, what OS are you using? more specifically, what shell? With find, can we assume a Linux shell?

comment How to open a file in binary format.(1's & 0's)
I agree with this. Find something that deals with mostly Hex, binary for the few places where it makes a difference. You only want to deal with a few binary bytes, not a whole file.

@ReinhardtRatkasvanRooyen is this on a Mac? My assumption was Linux, therefore gawk.

comment Cannot find downloaded file after SFTP “get” command
Additionally, you can usually use ! in your ftp/sftp client to escape to the shell. !pwd and/or !ls would be particularly useful here.

comment Using the mv command with multiple wild cards
As @AFH said, isn't clear what you want. What's multiple wildcards? It may help to remember that mv never sees wildcards, the shell interprets them. What's the command line you want mv to see? Also, check up on extglob, it may help you. Here's a decent explanation of various globbing tools in bash. Wouldn't mv .../American\ Horror* ..../destdir do what you want?
