Entry 1: Training those Ninja Skills

Topic: Ninja Skills

Good system admins are able easily look through directories and files for specific targets or patterns and then either aggregate data for easy viewing or perform tasks on files.

If its something done regularly, then one would usually design a script which can handle the task.

However, if its a one off task then the best case scenario is having access to some ninja skills and tools which can make the job less tedious and more efficient. Otherwise, you're stuck doing things manually.

Throughout this log, I will pick out entries from and break down the building blocks of that elegant (intimidating to some) command.

PLEASE let me know if I'm doing something wrong, or if you have any suggestions or requests~
