Perhaps time to revise/update my environment list… This is what I use right now.

Have I missed anything?

shell in colours

Sometimes it feels nice to see a bit of colour. One of the most common places is the shell prompt. The concept and usage is the same, whether you want some colour in your prompt or elsewhere.

Typing an Ellipsis or other Special Characters

Sometimes I have a need to type special characters. Some of them aren't obviously represented on my keyboard. Indeed, no physical keyboard can realistically show all Unicode characters.

One of my often used special characters is the ellipsis () which is Unicode character U+2026.

spidark queries nftables

I had some kernel config issues re nftables. While helping me, spidark says

I have no idea (yet) what im doing.
But this works ( crippled i think but it works)
Can't remember where i got it from :( Sorry original author, and thanks )
However it does timeout my eix-sync and dhclient complains about ipv6 not permitted because of the drop state ( working on that )
Maybe you can figure it out.

delete blank lines

I had a need to delete blank lines from the output. And I tried this from my previous post[1].
sed '/^$/d'

The above sed works fine, if the lines are truly empty.
