Pleased to announce that, for the first time in ~20 years of using Debian and/or Ubuntu, I remembered the command "lsb_release -a", for finding out what version of the OS I am running, without having to look it up.
@darius And were you surprised?
@nickmofo I was not, thankfully!
@darius I’m so bad at retaining that command that I habitually do ‘cat /etc/*release’ every time.

@darius Congrats! Next thing you know, you'll be the first person to remember the correct order in the scp and tar commands, too!
@laze give me another 20 years and I bet I can get there
@darius this sounds like something a super user would do!!! 😎
@wayward I need a sticker that says "super user"
@darius I'm on it
@darius rough draft
@wayward yes, I definitely pictured a star and this has two
@darius Yay! Good job!
@darius For those used to Python, I will often run `python -m platform` to do something similar.
