Lately I read a lot of things that are not typical for me, these are the pleasant ones…. (this is from before over 1 year)
This one is dying slowly… who does not travel, who does not read and does not listen to music, which does not detect charm in itself.
This one is dying slowly… which destroys your selfishness, who refuses help, who is not looking for diversity.
This one is dying slowly… which turns in the slave of habit, passing every day on the same paths, who does not risk to dress in a different color and does not talk to strangers.
This one is dying slowly… who flees from passion and the vortex of feelings, which restore the sparkle in the eyes and save sad hearts.
This one is dying slowly… who does not change his life, when he is dissatisfied with the work or your love, which does not risk security for the unknown, to pursue a dream, who does not decide at least once in his life to escape the wise counsels.
Separation is not in the words,
the separation is in the silent,
in fear, that you will lose something,
in fear, that you have nothing left.
Separation is not in time,
in which you go alone,
in which you say goodbye,
the separation is after that…
A few days ago they were over 25 years of Linux. Whenever I read the letter of Linus I fall into such a very fun mood. I have no intention of explaining how important Linux is and what role it plays in our lives. Rather, I wondered what role he had played in my life. Then many questions came up
If it weren't for linux, would I be BSD or, God forbid, a Windows administrator ?
Would I be an administrator at all
What would I do if I wasn't an administrator – programmer (he protected me….)
What OS would I use
What technique would I use – phone computer – I would probably be another apple fan boy
I haven't been coding for a long time and I rarely have to pick up any clivs that are not UTF8 encoded. Today I had to quickly review some files and when I opened it almost immediately I wanted to do rm -rf on the folder where they were contained, some stupid individual with half a brain cell has decided to write his comments in Cyrillic. Fortunately, not the super admiral forces solve this misunderstanding of nature with 1 row in cli:
Today I had to run one fsck on a large RAID array ~ 6TB. In the speed I did not start fsck with the -C option to show me progress and after a modest wait from 2 hours I'm a little tired, that I am unaware of how far the inspection has come. A cool trick for an already launched fsck to visualize the progress bar is:
kill -10 $(pidof fsck.ext3)
You wait a while with me after about 2-3 min a progress bar appeared and showed 49% (kef) more 3 hours of waiting 🙁
Let's summarize what we do we send a signal SIGUSR1 which prompts the fsck to show the progress bar. If we want to stop it for some reason, we have to send it SIGUSR2 or
kill -12 $(pidof fsck.ext3)
Well this is not something super complicated or difficult just a cool trick 🙂
