    You are in my G+ circle as well. Though I missed your expertise, as well as Matt's on this forum. Hugenoot must have a gift in reviving things ;-)

    RE: Avast! Anti Virus for Linux, kind of cool.
    I have used and trusted avast on windows and now on Macs. Since I have been using it, never encountered a virus. Never needed antivirus for Linux. The only serious threats that I have heard was the shellshock and the heartbleed threat. That does not mean Linux is untouchable. It means it knows how a system can be compromised. That being said, there is no such thing as too much security. I don't like taking chances. Use what you believe helps. Learn from Linux about how to be a responsible systems operator.

    RE: Email/PIM Application
    It has been a while since I have seen a post from you Eric. How are things with you? I was trying to open up that link to posted through the chrome browser on my windows phone 8.1. The link did not open. One of the benefits of cloud computing is any-place-accessible-storage. The only real problem is dishonest operators and weak security. Rule of thumb, don't store sensitive data in the cloud. When it comes to backup, the process is much more manageable. We talk about cloud all day. I am just glad to hear from you again.

    RE: Bootable DVD and Switchign to Linux Help
    Linux is not for everyone, that I do know. Don't always believe the hype. Use it and make your own decision. Glad you were able to burn Zorin.

    Here is my command:

    if [ $# -gt 0 ]
    then
    if [ $1 = head ] || [$1 = tail ]
    then
    $1 -n $3
    else

    You did not put an action to execute after the else statement. The "else" statement always needs an action in order for the command to execute properly.

    If this is not satisfied, "$1 -n $3, what should the command do as a result?

    fi
    fi

    if [ -d $3 ]
    then
    echo "Directory selected exists"
    else
    echo "Directory selected does not exist"
    fi

    if [[ $2 = *[[:digit:]]* ]];
    then
    echo "value is a digit"
    else
    echo "$2 is not an integer"
    fi
