Today I was setting up Windows Subsystem for Linux and wanted to change to the root user using the command:
I was prompted for the password, but had no idea what it was. So I needed to figure out another way of switching to the root user instead of prefixing every command with sudo. Did I say switch and prefix and sudo? O yes, stupid me.
Don’t forget to exit once you are done. And be careful not to wrech havoc while working under the
root account. Have fun!
In this post I will explain how to install, configure and run PT Magic (PTM), a free add-on for the Profit Trailer (PT) cryptocurrency trading bot, on a VPS using Ubuntu.

I needed to be able to send mail from the command line on one of my servers. A quick way to do this without setting up a mail server is using Mutt to send mail using Gmail. In this post I will give a short write-up how to install and configure Mutt on Ubuntu. As I have two factory authentication setup on Google an app specific password is required instead of the regular Google account password.
