canon_mossa

Whole an article in the 2013 that was the subject of stabilization of shaky videos.

Here is the news of the day - taken from OSVeichle.

Although this position seems to be difficult to understand according to the viewpoint typical of the companies that are trying to capture market share, this makes perfect sense if you look at the mission of Tesla: "accelerate the advent of sustainable mobility".

Terminal: clear the command history

shell

Cencellare command history from the history of the terminal is a simple operation. Default, the last 500 commands type in termilane are stored in the hidden file ".bash_history".

This makes it easy to invoke a command recently typed, but it could be a security issue if that session was used by more people. So how does one delete the command history?
