@MichaelHomer Ok, thank you.
@MichaelHomer @StephenKitt @jesse_b @jesse_b Tried it again just now, and it worked immediately. Weird.

When I type a command in the linux shell which uses arguments that have the ! character, the shell automatically replaces the ! followed by the character with the last used command
How to escape this behaviour
 
oh
thanks, jeez didnt think it would be that simple
 
you’re welcome!

or disable history expansion, with set +H
 
or single quotes
or run bash in POSIX mode + double quotes
 
or set HISTSIZE=0
 
¡!
 
or use a Unicode LATIN LETTER RETROFLEX CLICK ǃ instead of the plain old !
 
more than one way to BASH a cat

Does anyone know about libraries that ask geolocation questions after install? I'm trying to install librust-gobject-sys-dev on ubuntu and it's asking for my location and timezone even if I use -q
 
6:53 PM
seems to be a docker issue
 
7:37 PM
today might be the day I learn git... 15 years late
 
I would say it's easy but I barely have a working knowledge of it
 
I've gotten this far with "git clone" as the only thing I know
 
7:48 PM
git status, git add, git commit, git push
Learn those and you are at my level lol
 
whoah whoah whoah, slow down there. Lost me at between "git status" and "git commit" :)
Google: "git 101" --> About 58,300,000 results
 
I only got 49.2 million results
 
I'm more of a git than you, apparently ;)
 
maybe I need to rebase my google

oooph. a little worse for the wear, but managed to check out, modify, add, commit, then eventually push back to a branch. Omitting all the failed/repeated steps in-between :)
 
9:27 PM
git commit -am is my friend because I'm just gonna send it
 
I still have so much to learn. One of my attempts didn't work until I added the filename (git commit -m "some stuff" file-name-here)
apparently git -a would get around that, but... it didn't, which is probably PEBCAK
 
-a will add files that have been modified or deleted but if it's a new file you should run git add <file> first
I generally just do git add . though because I'm still gonna send it
 
yes, I'll have to set up a repo from scratch and really bang around to get my head on straight. Think I'll name it something short, like "x" :)
 
I find that useful for working with branches
