Raspberry Pi visible to Windows
I had a bunch of copy and pasting I wanted to do to my Pi from my Windows pc. Obviously, by default, the Pi is locked down and isn't visible on the network. To get it be visible, I had to install Samba and tweak the config and also set a password.
Here are the steps I took:
sudo apt-get install samba
sudo apt-get install samba-common-bin
sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf
Make some changes to this conf file.
workgroup = WORKGROUP
wins support = yes
add the following to the bottom of the conf file.
comment = Pi Home
Finally, run this command and enter the password.
sudo smbpasswd -a pi

Updating your Raspberry Pi
It's been a while since my Unix days, so I feel like I'm learning all over again.
Updating the Raspberry Pi is quite simple.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
That goes and downloads all the updates for what you have installed. In some cases, it will stop and ask if you want to continue. You just need to press Y and then <enter>
