Interested in reading Jarrett Drake's new "Seismic Shifts: On Archival Fact and Fictions" -- questioning terms "local" and "community" when applied to archives and how well they fit what we're talking about/how well they reflect reality...

More fun things! When you're outputting stuff to the command line itself, you can also just save it all to a file by adding the following to the end of your command: > output_file.txt (I mean name the file whatever you want) Use >> to append to a file.
The file doesn't have to already exist, this will create it. That's true for >>, which you can use for the first time you write out, too. So if you don't want to accidentally overwrite, use >> from the start. If you want new every time, use >!

Also just gosh this is the thing which makes me love being a librarian. Even when it's with other librarians. Sitting with a colleague and saying "oh hey try this?" and them being DELIGHTED that it's just made their life easier... that's why I do this shit.
Oh! And @trickster reminded me of Ctrl+R to open search history...
AND you can use the up/down arrows to go through things you recently entered! So if you've just entered a command and you need to edit one thing about it, you can pull it up, then redo ... or just rerun something recent!
Remember, for some person this is the first day they learn the thing! How awesome was it the day you learned the thing?
Since it took me ages to learn it and I just taught it to a colleague yesterday, here's a fun thing to know in the command line...
Tab will autocomplete things like filenames and directories for you! Try it!
