Articles on Free Software and GNU/Linux!TildeHash is a website for tech articles revolving around Unix / Unix-like Free Software and operating systems, written by Jacob Barkdull and occasionally other contributors. Put simplistically: articles that discuss and promote Free and Open Source software, GNU/Linux (commonly known simply as Linux), BSD, OpenSolaris, or Haiku, respectively, and hopefully in a useful way. You can also find some simple software here, and many blog posts on the development of such software, as well as opinions about various GUI designs / flaws, and bugs in current software and the many simple challenges of developing such software.
Tilde(~) Hash(#) is a reference to being logged into the "root user" account on the common Unix shell program GNU BASH. For example, when I login as "root" on my Debian system, my screen reads "jacob-debian:~#" and I may then execute "root privileged" commands. I was originally going to call it TildeSlash, as a reference to the common Unix file pathname syntax shortcut "~/", which denotes the user's filesystem home directory on the command-line (GNU BASH). Unfortunately, that domain name was already registered.
