For the geeks and dinosaurs among us**, A quick post on dired fixups I use for emacs. I like to sort by name, size, date, and extension. Dired sorts by name and time I think, by default. For other options you need to manually enter the ls sorting options. This elisp teaches dired to sort by size and extension as well.
**Someone today told me that emacs is a throwback and I am a dinosaur for continuing to use it. He said he used emacs in the past, but now he uses “more modern” tools. I’m a little suspicious because his first excuse for not using emacs was, “I run Windows”.
