comment I need a file: /etc/apache2/sites-available/default-ssl
Is that last BrowserMatch line supposed to read [17-9]? Looks like it should be [7-9] (or even [7-99] if we're assuming ie can only get better)?

comment How do you share history between terminals in zsh?
"SHARE_HISTORY: This option both imports new commands from the history file, and also causes your typed commands to be appended to the history file (the latter is like specifying INC_APPEND_HISTORY, which should be turned off if this option is in effect)." (From manual emphasis added) i.e. just the INC_APPEND_HISTORY option will do what you want.

comment How can I create launchers on my desktop?
Worth adding that a good place for these is in ~/.local/share/applications/ - then they turn up in the dash.

comment What is a good GUI file renamer that takes files from command line URIs?
(Hee hee. There also seems to be a bug in the nemo built-in mass Rename connector in that it generates incorrect URIs for filenames with spaces...)

comment What is a good GUI file renamer that takes files from command line URIs?
I have written my own solution for this using a nemo action and a shell script that uses yad, to basically provide a GUI to the shell rename command, but with sequential numbering add in. I'll post it somewhere soon!
