Great tutorial

That was great. I didn't know it was possible to write files outside the filesystem.

My favorite so far

Awesome episode! Been listening to HPR for a few months now. This one was my favorite so far. I enjoy when as as listener I get to follow along on a deep dive into a particular command. Learned a lot. Thanks CJ!
