comment Startup Disk Creator does not see volumes on my 32 GB USB Flash Drive
@muru "Startup Disk Creator uses FAT32 partitions. Try reformatting the ext4 partition as FAT32." should be an answer. Just helped me out.

comment When using grep on html files, how can I display only the text and not the tags?
Grep displays the file names when giving the results (somefile/somewhere:search result). If you pipe to grep (rather than to start with grep) you lose the filenames...

Also note that performing the change on the grep results is exponentially faster than performing the change on all the files to then grep the pattern.

comment Got a virus on Windows and Ubuntu
Wow this is a good question. You did a lot of research. All the things I wanted to write, you've already done. Do I understand you correctly that the virus is also active on Ubuntu? What did Google tell you? A name of the virus would help. PS: maybe the virus comes from one of the 50 anti-viri programs you have used.

comment Add column from one .csv to another .csv file
@Joe look into csvkit. It has a tool called csvstat which gives you some statistics. It also has a few nice tools to select columns etc. All the things you are saying you can do with csvkit if you read the manual.
