Open-Source Projects

I'm actively involved in the open source community. I contribute to various projects, and make many of my own tools available under the GPL. Some of my recent projects include:

  • ruby-dev
    • Automate builds of fully-functional Ruby on Rails VMs for quick-start development.
  • tempgit
    • Integrate Git with TDD: mechanize temporary Git repositories during testing.

comment What happens if I do an improper shutdown of Lubuntu 13.10?
@Utkarsh You flush all data to disk and unmount the disks safely. However, applications still won't have an opportunity to respond to any signals sent at normal shutdown; you can try Alt+SysRq+e before unmounting if you think some processes will listen, but it may be safer to block further filesystem access altogether. YMMV. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key for additional options.

comment how to check OS and version using Linux commmand
@debal Because on Linux systems all it returns is GNU/Linux, which is not what the OP is likely asking for.
