Random Items

This page is for random things. In some cases, it's stuff that just doesn't quite fit in anywhere else. In other cases, it is a place to stash something I intend to put in as part of a larger reference page, but want to tuck it away so that I don't lose it.

sudo within EMACS

This is to open a file as root within an EMACS session. This allows EMACS to be started as a user (as oppsed to sudo emacs filename). Quite handing for an X Windows session. It's really rather simple:

  1. C-x C-f to open the file open "dialog."
  2. Clear out the line (if applicable).
  3. Type /sudo::path and filename
Added 2020-12-20, from Stack Exchange. I expect this will be added to an EMACS section.

This key sequence will force the Chrome browser to go to the server for pages, rather than accessing the cache. There is a full set of instructions for a variety of operating systems and browsers.
