comment Txt file contains bin characters which doesn't render properly in vim
Actually, ASCII text would be all code points ≤ U+007F.

Thank you, Sopalajode. In what situation have you needed to use sudo ls in Cygwin?

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
The woman hod been to my house many times before, our children would often play. Unless she would have gone into my work room and noticed that the router had been changed there was no way outside to know. No wifi devices, no router packaging lying around (I keep the box and in fact still have it), and she had been there many times before.

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
@ValarDohaeris: My hypothesis is that nobody could detect wifi. In the test, the woman could detect it. Therefore, my hypothesis was false. That said, I've raised two daughters in that very house with that very wifi, so I personally do not perceive any danger.

No tablets in the house. The only reason that I installed wifi was because I had to replace my router anyway. It wasn't until my wife got a Galaxy S3 in October 2012 that the wifi was ever actually used!

comment Paranoid Parent: “WiFi safe for baby?”
@ValarDohaeris: Thank you for the reference. I don't see how this applies here. In a double-blind real-life incident (Neither the woman who felt the wifi nor myself intended for this to be an experiment, and nothing was mentioned to her) a human detected that a wifi network was active in the area. I also would love for it to be not true, but here we have experimental evidence.

Why the downvotes? This is a true incident which demonstrates that some people may be sensitive to wifi. Just because we would all like for wifi to have no effect on humans, does not mean that we should ignore incidents in which it does have a direct, measurable effect.

comment Go to end of `===` but not include `$`
Thank you! I did not realise that one could have the cursor land on the end of a searched string, in fact I have searched for this feature in the past.

comment Go to end of `===` but not include `$`
Thank you, I'll try the keyword definition. I'm looking for solutions that I could build upon and expand, the substitute command doesn't seem to support all that I would like to do.

comment Find and then ask to perform action
Thank you Romain! This doesn't scale to the use of other more complex changes, but when I get to those I'll ask a more specific question.

comment Set name of Konsole window
Thank you choroba, but as I mention in the OP, setting all the tabs' titles is not practical and has too many drawbacks.

comment Set name of Konsole window
@choroba: Thank you, but that only sets the name of the first tab in a newly-opened Konsole window. It has no functionality advantage over setting the tab name in all the extant window tabs, which as I mentioned has drawbacks.

@tohuwawohu: Yes, it does set me in the right direction to answer the question. You can link to that post or paraphrase it as an answer, and I'll accept. Thank you tohuwawohu!

comment Open only the first 10 lines of large CSV file in LibreOffice Calc
I prefer Calc as the lines are long (over 30 columns) and are of arbitrary length. I (human) need to read real data out of them.

Thank you philwills. In fact, that was the post that introduced me to relativenumbers, and taketwo links to it as well.

comment Highlight each 10 line number (not the whole line)
Thank you Ingo, that is a seriously creative solution! It does have some issues, though , such as loosing sync with the real line numbers for lines that wrap (as does Ecnerwal's solution). I do enjoy learning from the creative use of some new (to me) VIM functions. Thank you!

I'm breaking out the white-out and ruler! At least this might make an interesting conversations piece, so long as I never decide to change my terminal font size.
