  1. Hi there,
    Thank you for your good article. I m interested and i learned something about it. I ll try to follow all articles as much as i can.
    The world is growing up with sharing. :)

  2. Cheat sheets.
     
    Recovery modes for computers often use the command line, so a cheat sheet for the command line could be useful, especially if a computer breaks (in software) and no other computer is available to search the internet on how to fix.
     
    Very important data printed out to have a non-digital backup.
     
    This could be printed out as text which is human readable but difficult to reliably scan back to digital form, although OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is getting better.An alternative would be to print out the data as QR codes so that it can be reliably scanned back to digital form if the digital form is destroyed.
