It was hands-on-Linux-superuser week for me
I learned to remain calm while working at 10fps on a triple-layered remote desktop connection to a Red Hat server in order to retrieve several logs. I had the chance to review and reinforce my knowledge on Bash stuff like pipes and commands (for example, I did not remember that grep accepts regex, unlike cp).
Also, I learned a simple yet useful linux command to switch from cli to gui when using my Debian machine; startx. Before I'd run systemctl start lightdm but that was easy to forget.
