The passing of FiftyOneFifty
It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.
FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.
Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Linux In The Shell aims to explore the use of many commands a user can run in the Bash Shell. Tutorials include a write up with examples, an audio component about the write up, and a video component to demonstrate the usage of the command.

In the fourth in his series Dann, shows us the benefits of the paste command:
The paste command merges the lines of two or more files or a file and standard in if a second file is not specified or a "-" is used in place of the second file. Consider the following two files. The first file, test1.txt contains the following lines:
The second file, test2.txt contains the following lines:
The paste command can be used to paste these two files like so:
paste test1.txt test2.txt
producing the following output:
one blue finch
Each line in test1.txt has been “pasted” to the corresponding line in test2.txt.
