What’s the moral of the story? How can I not be able to fix a silly trackpad when I major in computer science?
The command line is powerful with all of its commands, yet over time the tasks can get tedious and repetition. Learning the hotkeys can greatly expedite the process. Continue reading “Bash: Maneuver Around Command Line Efficiently”
Just like last year, I was too lazy to go back to San Diego for Thanksgiving
