shortcut to file path

I know there is a way to set a shortcut to a file path. Say, typing, $directory.name, refers to /some/path/to/the/proper/location/directory.name/ I've been trying to google it, but Alias and soft link, keeps coming up, that's not what I'm looking for. I just don't want to type the entire file path e...

squid proxy settings for video streaming.

I get poor quality video when using squid proxy. I use the proxy when I'm out of the country to view geographically restricted video. What can I add to my squid.conf file to be sure I'm getting the best video quality possible? Edit: Here is what I'm rocking right now. # Recommended minimum configura...

I passed rm * -f in my root folder

I wasn't paying attention and I nuked my / directory with # rm * -f
My directory's are still there but I deleted all the soft links. So, I can't pass any commands to reset them.
what do I need to do, so I can make new soft links.

Once that's done you sho...
