I realized the other day, based on repeated questions, that many people don’t know which CD is the best to download. When looking at a list of CD options from a download page the options can be very overwhelming. I thought I would break things down for everyone today.
To save the trees, i always squeeze multiple blank lines down to single blank line, before printing. Once I did this manually (yes, it’s like hell), but now I use cat -s:
