wget me a decent chrombox link for dual booting
 
+Gjermund Gusland Thorsen the major one is that wget is recursive and curl is not. Also, wgt is GPL and curl is MIT license, if that matters to you.
 
pron w/o cron LOL

oh that's great.  hahahaha. 
 
grep, awk, dd and vi.  All you need to be a pro.  wc is also handy.
 
seq (...) | xargs -n1 -P8 ./script (...)   run 8 instances of ./script in parallel!
 
+Jack Thursby vi isn't really a "command" in that it's typically used interactively. sed is the command equivalent.
 
Apt-get is mine... I like to be up to date :-P
Probably my new favorite is rsync. I'm trying to get my stuff (years of windows machines and a few Linux installs) organized and in a back up plan. 
 
didn't know wget had this many options. thanks!
 
omg... wget, that's it? what about df -h? sed? find? grep? sudo su, scp, |, <, >, awk....
 
Good one bro, pretending to be a woman online. Like any women actually use linux, .0001% of the world.
 
YEEE_HAAAA!!! LINUX COMMANDS. Damn. I can't use them in Mac OS. CRAP!!! 
 
I started with Windows. Then, I got a MacBookPro. Then I learned about "Virtual Machines." So I ran Windows, on my MBP. Then I learned of Ubuntu. I've always known about Linux, but I've always assumed it wasn't as visually stunning or user friendly as the lader. But I was wrong. I totally dig it. Now, I've upgraded to 12.10 and I'm so confident with it that I run it on my old laptop as the primary OS. Great job Linux. You're cool too +Nixie Pixel, thanks for all the info. :)  
 
I was into Red Hat back in 2002. Still have a MBP, which I'm typing this on. I've run Ubuntu on a couple laptops in the past with no technical problems, but as a musician, I couldn't find any studio recording software that worked with my audio interfaces (drivers were a problem there too), so I abandoned Ubuntu to go back to Cubase and my MBP and Pro Tools on my PC. I may tinker with Ubuntu again in the future on a new system.
 
"i command you to stay tuned" ... that didnt work .. you should have used

`sudo i command you to stay tuned`
 
Good thinking job keep it up and get me link up for next video it is nice move
 
I'll be sure to experiment with this on my Nokia n9 :-)
 
...Time to knock one out....forget the gin, wouldn't mind sipping on her juice...dan...the best diagnostic tool in Windows is msconfig.exe....any ideas what the GUI version is for Linux....?...any redheads or red hatters like to comment....?
 
+Nixie Pixel , would you consider to make your video in "hysterical literature" style? like the few created by Cubitt?
 
There are too many flavors of Unix out there, I would say HP-Unix is the best, but the one that matches the Cisco Command Line Interface would be Redhat... The first developer that creates a GUI that not only controls a Cisco router including the corresponding connected desktop, but really shows you whats going on in the background will be the clear winner...Microsoft TechNet did one called Process Monitor...sorry, but it was totally confusing...
 
It'd be nice to talk about some bash scripting tools. People often forget that the shell has flow control, which can be really great if you have to do something repetive.

Shell workhorses it'd be nice to see covered.
awk, find, cat, grep, printf (better than echo), pipes, stdout and sterr redirects, nohup, nice, alias
 
The screen in the video is so blurred, i couldn`t see the commands.
 
wget is so awesome!! curl rocks as well
 
I use a lot of:
for f in `find|grep ext`; do echo `echo $f | sed 's/\(.\+\)/do something with \1 and sed/g';done

Though using find with xargs also works.
 
Awesome Nixie. I could use some insights into grep. It always confuses me. Cheers
 
great video - thanks!  :D
 
There are some very useful commands in Linux
 
I even use it on my Mac. I love to use it with the -c option :-D

how to remove linux 7.3. from IDE harddisk. to SATA . i just use ghot program then cat't reboot 
 
(Note: don't try this at home)
You should probably teach people about `rm -rf /`
 
I wish people could just hit plus-1 to express approval instead of leaving an endless trail of "gd post lol" and such ..

I used to like your show a lot even though I've been using *NIX/BSD for almost a decade. Lately you have been focusing on so many trivial topics that it isn't fun watching anymore. Focus on more advanced topics!

Ideas:
- Show bash scripting
- Introduce Sublime Text 2 with Package Manager

And then: I know screen recording on Linux isn't fun, but you need to crop the visible view to a reasonable size. Seeing a command line, half-sized in 1080p on a tabled just sucks, you can't read anything. Zoom in to the important things that are happening in your video, no one wants to see the whole desktop anyways.
 
i like ur pose i am 4rum 9ijeria
 
i propos u to auto crop your video to be enough readable view to let us understan wats going abaut clearly
 
Forlinux in general, I would like a command like :
sudo get rid of terminal and get gui
Because terminal is sooo 1982.
 
hello, sorry if i may be a little left bhnd. learning how to do something on ones own aint easy. its my first tym on gmail bt as i get familiar with it, i will hav much to say. thank you.
 
Hello and thank you for useful info ^_^
 
You said thumb up, but I saw this on Google + so I +1. :)
 
+Nixie Pixel Great video, very informative.  I never realized there were so many options for wget.  

I'd be willing to bet many users could benefit from a video about | grep > filename.txt    I use it all the time to find things and keep track of them.  Thanks again for the info and keep it up!
 
+Nixie Pixel Definitely a thumbs up on the video. As far as I can tell from my own experience 'wget' is one of the most useful commands/programs around: being able to simply line up downloads is great, because this way with just a few lines of scripting around it (e.g. to generate a sequence of URLs) you can keep the program busy for hours. The '-c' option is a real killer, especially when on a rather shaky network connection; too many times I noticed that other manners of download would stop at some point, while 'wget' would still be going (do not forget that you also can fine-tune the behavior by adjusting the time interval between retries and the number of retries).
 
Definitely going to try this one out. It never even occurred to me to download directly through the command line.
 
You know, I've been using Linux for about 4 years now and I alternate between GUI and CLI interactions. I knew wget was a wonderful CLI file downloader, but I had no idea about its web crawling abilities! Where I work, we download large chunks of the web all the time (because those who use these downloads are not allowed live internet access). Will have to compare how we do it to how wget does it. This is awesome!
 
lol wget  it a great command but I prefer to check the files myself before getting the files from a remote server i have never heard off.
 
Seems like a very misleading demonstration, because it makes it appear that she downloads an actual mp4 file using a youtube page URL.
 
Really?!??! You had to tell people how to use wget?!??!... REALLY?!?!?!?

If you need someone to tell you how to do this then DON'T use Linux, you are clearly to stupid!

Also she is plugging a device, GoTo Assist, a Citrix product that.... here comes the kicker.... does not work on Linux! Why the hell would you take Linux command advice form this windows bound newb?!?!?
 
+Adam Schemanoff seriously? your the moron, instead of criticizing why don't you do teach someone new skills, but from your profile your more interested in your dog and dressing up as a knight
 
+Adam Schemanoff So she targets a video at novice/intermediate users who might use this as a starting point in learning more about/getting more involved in Linux and Free/Open Source, and you're going to condemn her for that? You apparently would rather people not use the software at all because they're not to your standard of intelligence? Nothing like elitist pricks who later question why the Linux community is so intimidating to new users.

So she's creating content positive to the community overall, and she's lucky enough to be able to secure sponsors to help keep this content coming. She even puts the advertisements at the end of the video which, I find, is very courteous.

Also, not a thread until the grammar nazis jump in, so... It's "too stupid," not "to." :P
 
Jesse Belanger wget is not even novice level and really does not need a video to explain it. It's super basics. And thanks for the "grammar Nazi" comment, but it's not a grammar issue, it's a dyslexic issue. You know dyslexia, the resisted disability.

But thanks for being discriminative against disabled people. How big of you.
 
+Adam Schemanoff Lol. The grammar nazi comment was clearly tongue-in-cheek, and now you want to hide behind your disability and use it to claim I'm being discriminatory? Sorry, no luck there chum. Pretty sure my comment had nothing to do with discriminating against you, and everything to do with your clearly elitist and own discriminatory attitude towards novice users and people who actually, you know, create things. :P

But if it makes you sleep better at night thinking you're smarter than all these people who shouldn't be allowed to use Linux because they watched a video to learn about wget... more power to you. :D
 
Yes Jesse Belanger I have often found that bigots claim to "just be joking" after there discriminative views are exposed. I might add the kind of comments you main would be classed a as crime within the UK. Of course you can not denote tone on the internet but your failure to retract your statement clearly shows your true colours and views.

As for helping notice users..... wget is not even a good place to start for novice user,s how about cd, ls , rm, how about teaching them to use apt-get, yum or paceman first?  This is just stupid.

Ow and FYI, I have been helping new users to Linux for over 15 years on IRC and with a number of white papers and on-line content and currently work in the education industry as a Technical Consultant, being Linux focused. So I'm rather comfortable in the knowledge that I have done more to help and support the Linux and open source community then a rubbish video on wget will ever do.

linux ? why people cant live a simple life... ctrl alt delete... i like windows...
 
+Adam Schemanoff  So my bigoted, discriminative views are what, exactly? The fact that I disagreed with your initial comment, or that I corrected your use of "to" vs "too," with absolutely no prior knowledge of your disability? I'd wager the former being the real issue here. But feel free to continue convincing yourself that everyone who disagrees with you on the internet is making a personal attack on you not actually the disagreement. So please, identify the discriminatory statement you'd like retracted and I'll gladly do so. I can't find one.

I'm not going to ridicule or take away from whatever work you've done for the community. My comment is directly related to your non-construtive feedback on this video. Whether or not the video on using wget applies to you or not, it's probably useful to someone. I'd rather see videos like this continue to be created and promote use of the OS.
 
+Nixie Pixel I haven't used wget for about some 12 years. I find it interesting that at you demonstrate this in #ubuntu  . Actually, I use either the Software Center or (preferably) synaptic. The GUI interface does 'spoil' new users, but I agree that knowledge of linux commands is / should be considered as primordial.
Thank you.
 
Someone already mentioned rsync, and that's probably one of my most useful tools.  One person mentioned using scp a lot.  The benefit of rsync over scp is that rsync will only transfer the parts of a file that have changed.  So if you run scp to sync between two computers, every file in your list will transfer, whether it has changed or not.  If you use rsync, any files that have not changed will not transfer, and if all you changed in a file was a period to a comma, only that change will transfer on that 1 gigabyte file.  Pretty cool.

To ensure the files transfer securely, 'rsync -essh' will make it use the ssh protocol and encryption.  'rsync -avvz' will send it in archive mode (the a), maintaining permissions, ownership, date/time stamps, etc., and will make it verbose so you can watch what is happening (the v's), and will send it in a compressed format (the z), saving time and bandwidth.
 
You look very beautiful

Please stop sending notification to me.
 
+nelly nadi On the top right of Nixies Post there is a small round button (with a triangle in it). Click it and "ignore" this post. Then the notifications about every new comment will disappear.
Hope this enhances your Google+ experience.
Yes, it is annoying for big posts with many comments.
 
I love your Gin and Juice reference; That mean u are extremely down to earth; rare for a someone so beautiful.

Yeah, but how do you wget YouTubes??? Like Minitube, for some strange reason it stopped working...
 
favorite tools: grep, sed, awk, vim, top, htop, zsh (love this one), git, screen, wget/curl, links/lynx/links, dd, finch, irssi and nifty scripts in bash/python/perl.  
 
I don't know what shes talking about ,I just like looking at her !
 
Favorite command: perl

I would love to see you try to do a five minute summary of perl. Now that would be a challenge.
 
+Daemon Blak You should try AVLinux 6. Google it, download the iso, and install as a live usb. It is optimized for low latency and includes so many good music and video programs. AVLinux is also kind to older machines and quite stable. Best of all, it comes preconfigured with jack. No further configurstions needed. Just play and enjoy.
 
good youtube channel subscribing!
 
Very sad on my part, I couldn't even download it. It s been a mystery for me. However thanx.
 
It's a nice introduction for beginner but you could also introduce grep , sed , top , kill and a lot of others commands . I don't know why you start with wget ... For begginer you could start with cp , mv , rm and gradually go to more difficult commands. explain symbolic links , bah scripts.

It's merely much too worrisome to learn 'open source'.  Our custom settings at Windows XP Pro may inhibit some advantages but without them, we are familiar enough to compute without being eggheads & without hassles!
 
Gee ok my first time on Google+

is it possible to change the extension as well?
 
Thanks. You're beautiful...
