Did you know that in the ye old days chown user.group (dot separator) was valid syntax?
This decision was changed when the utility was first standardised in POSIX.2 (1992) to the more known `:` separator to make the utility work with usernames containing a `.` (which is legal).
Fun fact? ALL chown implementations (*BSD's, Linux, Mac OS X) still allow the dot syntax as it's widely used and yet it was deprecated 25 years ago when it first became part of the standard...
Ain't gonna knock anyone's weird sexy standards.. 🤪
I finally followed back ya'll. Phew.

Laptop stuff.. Show more
So I returned my new laptop yesterday due to keyboard/fan issues, decided to walk it down to the UPS store.. on the first warm day of the season.
So that was fun, but hopefully I can find a better replacement.. cosmetically the IdeaPad was nice, and it had oodles of memory, fast CPU.. but not be the greatest of quality..
My arms are out of commission this morning... :-(
