comment Blocking SSH Brute Force attacks on IPv6
For more information about fail2ban adding IPv6 support: github.com/fail2ban/fail2ban/issues/39. It seems that they are facing a problem with subnet blocking, which delays further implementation (it seems to get further and further away from us actually...).

comment Why are UNIX/POSIX system call namings so illegible?
@Benjoyo Well, anyone who is not used to this environment isn't supposed to use system calls in the first place, since they are specifically meant for those who are. (Standard) libraries are here for the others. UNIX does not follow these fashionable design "rules" that would make it easily understandable at first glance. Those who use it without looking into any doc are in for a lot of trouble, and few people in the UNIX community would consider that a problem to be solved.

comment Why are UNIX/POSIX system call namings so illegible?
The day my kernel changes from time to getCurrentTimeSecs or something like that, I'll just stop upgrading it. Even with my comfortable keyboard and recent hardware, these names remain extremely convenient and simple (simplicity being one of UNIX's fundamentals). I really don't feel the need to bring that kind of Java/C#-style naming into the C language, let alone in a Linux kernel. IMO, from the perspective of a kernel developer, or UNIX developer in general, these idioms are nothing close to undesirable.

comment How I Can Switch to other user to read file on unix
And they say Linux is complicated... You want to switch to another user... without using sudo, nor su... which are designed for this very purpose, and more. We could certainly use more details about your (real) problem here...

comment Displaying a list of all *.java
@tachomi Adding -R would search recursively in directories with names matching *.java. This assumes that they are directories with such silly names, and that they contain nothing but Java files (because every thing in those directories would be grep-ed).

comment Displaying a list of all *.java
U&L is not a place for people to post their homework assignments and ask others to do their work for them... You should show us what you tried, at least... Not to mention that similar questions must have been answered here already...
