I use a variety of tools for my research, so many that I can't always remember how to do something that I have done before. Therefore I try to keep notes of how I did something or how I think I might do something in the future. These notes are biased towards the use of the command line on computers running Linux. Below are some of the collections of notes that I have assembled, which you might find of use. At this point most of this is written as a reminder to myself and isn't necessarily intended to serve as a tutorial. Please note that much of this information came from various sources on the Internet, so I don't make any claims of originality; I have simply collected information into a single location to make my life easier.
