   Cheshire Grin 0x1

s4lt    1st Mar 2019   


Testing the waters out. Migrated the DB to circumvent some issues, so that's really all I care to test. It is March first, and it seems like it has taken forever to get to this point, but I'm holding strong. I'll throw in some udpates whenever I get around to working on some projects.




   Victory For Me 0x1

s4lt    7th Feb 2019   


I took all of the learning methods that I was studying up on and applied them to the LX0-03 exam and missed only one question. I'm glad I didn't quit and put in all of my energy into passing the exam, but I do feel like I could have done more. I actually enjoyed explaining the TR command and feel like I shouldn't stop there, even if I already passed the exam.

I still need LX0-04, however, so there should be more blogging to do. I feel as if I'm falling out of sorts the past couple of days, however. My focus isn't a great and my motivation is sliding. I have an inkling as to why, but I'm rather…


   TR Command 0x0

s4lt    12th Jan 2019   


The tr (translate) command is used for translating, squeezing, and/or deleting characters from standard input and writing it to standard output. I'm going to attempt to break it down so that it is easier to understand.


Assuming you have an understanding of standard input, standard output, and redirections, the translate can help you take inputted information and manipulate it out to the command line or to a file for viewing at a later time.

One of the easiest ways to learn more about the translate command is to access the help option which will give you information on the various switches that can be used.

tr --help

To use the translate command, you'll type tr with or without an [OPTION], and then the set…


   Of Golems And Men 0x0

Do not doubt me. Believe I will succeed, but do not compliment me. At least not out loud. Believe that I will take over the world, but do not speak of it as if I have already done so. If you must, do so in silence.

/everything is feyn

So it has become apparent to me that one of the best ways to practice the Feynman technique is to teach what you know, or what you don't know so that you can learn it. That was the premise behind this blog, so I think I was already headed in the right direction.

My primary focus at the moment is to pass the Linux+ exam to get that out of the way, but I…


   Hall Of Mirrors 0x0

s4lt    27th Dec 2018   


In investigating potential methods to expand upon and increase my knowledge and information retention ability, I've been looking into different methods such as the method of Loci and verious reading techniques. The goal is to improve overall cognitive functionality and cut learning curves down to a minimum.

/method to the madness

Thus far I speed read through a book of 99 pages in about 2 hours to assess how well I could retain just the key words. To be quite honest, I'm not sure if they were key words or just words that I focused on per line read, but at any rate, I feel as if I got the gist of the book and feel like if I committed fully to…
