A user interface is well-designed when the program behaves exactly how the user thought it would.

There is no right answer ... and always a better way. Show and discuss your code, without emotional attachment. You are not your code.

Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it.

We’re building something here ... and all the pieces matter.

The game isn't really about big edges and firework displays; it's about subtle advantages and what happens in the long run.

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets credit.

Maybe the best programmers aren’t those who spectacularly solve crazy problems, but those who don’t create them, which is much more silent.

comment How to clear DNS cache on DD-WRT
Hmm... The code was just a quick example. Maybe I should delete it. Alternatively do you know the correct command for this env?

comment Why was '~' chosen to represent the home directory?
I have also read this is why Esc is used to switch modes in vi, since the key is easy to reach on this type of keyboard.

comment How do I know that FXP is enabled or not? (AIX FTPD)
Thanks, @Nikhil. Unfortunately I do not have an AIX box to verify the option - perhaps someone else can confirm.

comment Why are PATH variables different when running via sudo and su?
+1 - Cool, I was wondering why it was not in the path, and that makes sense. For what it's worth, I was building node.js from scratch to play around with it, so it makes sense why it would have been put there, and why sudo would exclude this directory by default.

I just tried it and now I see /usr/local/bin. Thank you so much for explaining this!

comment Why are PATH variables different when running via sudo and su?
Ah, I see that in my file. So, not that I want to, but if I added /usr/local/bin to this directive then I would see it in my path when running via sudo, right?

Interesting. This was on Fedora 12, for what it's worth...

comment Recommend a Linux Distribution for my use
An issue you might run into with a VM is memory. You would want to dedicate ~512 MB to the VM. With 2 GB of RAM that is a large chunk. On the other hand I don't run OSX so you may just be fine.

What kind of device is /dev/sda? A SATA hard drive? SCSI? Also, what kind of file system is it using?
