While doing a few of them I realized that the ones I was coming up with were
mostly terminal tricks, which then brought me to another questions.  Should
tips be GUI focused such as "How to Create Shortcut " or Conosle tricks such
as "Virtual Terminals".  And then if GUI focused, KDE or GNOME? they have
different elements, and if we were to do both than we should have different
databases.  Who knew such a simple app could prose so many questions.
