comment Getting errors trying to run shell script (Linux)
I tried your code, works for me. What version of bash is it running? echo $BASH_VERSION. You can delete the '()' on line 3; you're declaring the function with the function keyword and the open bracket.

comment How to change these Putty commands into Centos ones?
What's your question? These aren't "putty" commands. Putty is a tool to talk to an SSH host, like say a CentOS machine. So, if you get Putty to connect to CentOS, then when you type you're running the commands on CentOS.

comment How do you delete a directory entry from a directory, but not delete the directorys contents?
@suspectus if they have the same inode it is is a HARD link, not a symlink. The rest of your comment is correct. You have multiple file system entries pointing to the same (data) inode. You can remove one with rm without a problem. Once you remove the last filename/reference, you delete the inode and data.

comment How to prevent MacVim from inherenting .profile as if it was Bash itself?
I'd do debugging.... Id have some temp code in your .profile that dumps all env vars to a file. Then run it once as a shell, then run MacVim, see if MacVim sets something you can detect and put guard code around.

comment Routers with USB plug to connect external storage
Late comment: a lot of "Router+USB port" OS options also include UPnP support. The stock firmware on my Linksys has support for it (even though otherwise the firmware sucks). Im sure I could dig it out of dd-wrt if I bothered. My XBMC box (connected to the drive) also reports media through UPnP. Another difference though is backup: Most NAS OS options have better support for RAID and backups. It's a faster CPU than a router and can support running more software, such as backup software, on it.

comment How can I check my bookmarks in Chrome for broken links?
Also, what's broken mean? No website? 404? A huge subset of what you'd consider "broken" will be landing pages or redirects. A .com domain is too valuable to leave empty and a lot of links will be active but not pointing to the content you originally cared about.

comment Where do I get a JavaScript console?
@arielnmz It's a Javascript based server. Javascript is just a language. It is not tied to a web browser by anything other than convention and speed. Modern Javascript engines make it fast enough for server use. It doesn't replace any client use, it's just a different way to code a server.

comment Processor upgrade on a laptop vs. Ram upgrade. Also does ram always matter?
Most processors today aren't "purely" 32 bit. Any individual app (or the kernel) can only access 4Gb at a time, but the system can let the multiple apps use the extra memory. So Chrome can (and will ;) use 4GB, but your mail app can use some. How much you can use depends on the OS, most "32 bit" OSes can use 8, or even 16gb of ram (36Bits of addressing)

comment Where do I get a JavaScript console?
I don't know enough about it to make an answer, but I'd browse around NODE.js tools. They should have something.

comment Where do I get a JavaScript console?
@arielnmz It's taken a while, but Javascript has escaped the browser. NodeJS is probably the best known use now. XUL + Javascript can make local apps, or Mozilla phone apps.

comment Unix mail command: Sort by newest first
I'd try pine, see if that is set up on your system. pine, mutt, anything but base mail - it's pretty clunky.

comment Unix mail command: Sort by newest first
Are you wedded to mail? there are better command line clients, such as mailx, or pine. Pine specifically has better sorting options.
