@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?

comment Why does a router need to know the modem's static IP address?
My thoughts exactly. In fact you want this. If you have a static IP you don't want to futz around with a double NAT (one from router, one from modem)

comment Will Linux work correctly with full root partition?
@LuboSach there are user processes the write to /tmp and /var in normal processing. if /tmp is full, a lot of those normal processes don't run correctly, and your system suffers. You can't see this because mail is in /var and your warning "hey the system is hosed" emails don't happen :)

yep. Check to see if that is Included (either directly, or in a glob, you can do Include /dir/*.conf) in your current config.

comment Will Linux work correctly with full root partition?
I agree with @Hennes, is /tmp or /var on root? if so, you're in a lot of trouble. If not, you'll probably be fine.

comment Apache Trying to Bind to 0.0.0.0:443
443 is the https port, are you sure that you don't have any SSL config included? Apache installs tend to have a modular configuration - check to see if you Include something that has SSL.

comment Delete a file on mouse click(single or double)
OS? This is highly OS/GUI shell dependent. Also what tool would accept the password and try a decrypt? What would it do when password is good? Would first fail delete the file? Better hope you check caps lock then. I think any wedge in file handling would remove security than you are getting from this

comment Before Operating systems, What concept was used to make them work?
wouldn't the earliest ones, say ENIAC, hard wired? Not switched nor having stored programs? Or is this no longer a computer because of that... curious

comment Has there ever been software that has been perfect first time round?
@TreyTaylor ... and the world around you never changed, and your OS stayed the same version, and people never asked for the feature that your competitor just came out with. And a UI was perfect for people with vastly different mental models, and you magically did Internationalization somehow... Engineering is compromises. One resource constraint is time. What do I have time for in version 1? What can wait to 1.1? If you don't get the nature of constraints, you'll not be a good engineer :)
