Sorry to add here but I Terry may not have much of a sense of
humor. It was fairly obvious
to me that what Terry is talking about was intentional
misdirection for humors sake. Oh well.
The tone of of Terry's post here is more demeaning than helpful
in my not so humble opinion.

It is obvious from your rhetoric that you know a little about
what you're saying or some of the terms but not enough to
comment. Not sure if you have a problem with Linux command line,
the hotspot script, taped archive file system and command line
command, or lack of knowledge about compilation times. I suggest
that you purchase a book from your local bookstore and read it.
Keep a notepad and writing implement next to it to jot notes. I
suggest one titles Learn Linux in 24 hours. (Actual time is
about a month if you follow the lessons.) You don't decompress a
tar with the command sudo apt-get and superuser privileges are
not required to open the text editor called nano. You could open
a <name-of-archive.tar.gz> with a windows Zip program. A
problem with documentation is most windows users won't read it.
They have been accustomed to "Point and Click" and reading how
something functions requires too much effort. Like "If at all
possible when things like this come along if someone could just
type the commands in sequential order, where the average Ham
could follow and be successful that would be a godsend." Before
Linux, there was minix and Unix. Then DOS followed by GEOS,
Graphical Evironment Operating System on Commodore computers.
Then along comes Windows and a few years later the linux kernel
that developed into a command line operating system. Around 1999
some smart programmers developed a graphical user interface,
front end, for the Linux operating system. Most of today's Linux
users are converts from Windows. I would venture to guess that
most of us learned about Linux by reading and then performing
what we read on our computers. You don't learn Linux overnight.
It requires practice of use.
