        @doctorlinguist Hardly. I'm an accomplished mistaker, having begun at an early age and practicing – with a C! – regularly. 😝

                @jws That's the thing. I told him to change to /home/<dir>, he says, "I changed to /root, but I don't see anything I need there."

                  @jws No. He chooses his tools. He needs to learn how to use them. I told him to send me a public SSH key (he's been password-auth'ing). It's up to him to figure out how to do that. I'm not going to nanny him.

                        I've been leading a WordPress designer by hand all week through the process of trying to upload files to a different directory on server he's connected to before, and I'm beginning to understand why Linux forums are so unwelcoming to n00bs.

                          I love sitting on the front porch on these cool late-Spring mornings when the neighborhood's all atwitter with bird song. Coffee in hand, sun rising, a brief respite before all the drones start returning to the mothership.
