I'm a System architect & Linux admin for cloud.com (Citrix).

I've been working with Linux since right about when kernel 2.2 was released. I've bounced around several unixes, having brief stints with Solaris & FreeBSD, though I much prefer Linux.

I enjoy solving problems, and designing things. Both of which I'm able to exercise quite frequently working with Linux.


Outside of tech, I love flying kites (and partake in some kiteboarding), frisbee, and other outdoorsy activities. I love the warm weather, and thunderstorms, which is why I live in south Florida :-)

Oh, sorry, read the name off the wrong history event. @Qetesh that applies to you then :-)

@HalosGhost I reverted your edit. partprobe -s does not do what you think it does. The kernel will not pick up a resize of a partition which is in use. partprobe -s only works if the partition was in use during the resize (so when fdisk notified the kernel it failed), but it is no longer.

comment Want to setup a dropbox sync drive
What you're wanting to do can't be done exactly as you want. For the local system to back it up, the block device has to be mounted. If you expose it over USB as a block device, that other machine may mount it. You can't have 2 systems mount the same block device. Corruption will ensue. If you mounted it locally, and then exposed the filesystem (instead of the block device) via NFS/CIFS/etc, that would work.

comment Print numbers from 1-50
@SF. If you want shell, seq is hardly the 'right' way. echo {1..50} (or printf) would arguably be the shell way.

comment How to tell if the hidden text layer in a pdf file is from OCR or not?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is not about Unix or Linux.

comment Get CPU time for Benchmark in Bash Script
You probably want the time command. It'll be a lot simpler than what you've got now.

comment How to clean /tmp?
If /tmp is a tmpfs mount, turn on the atime mount option, and delete files with an atime more than 24 hours ago.

comment Sigstop when trying to run script?
You can probably solve a lot of issues by using getent instead of direct /etc/passwd management, and don't use su. For example: getent passwd | cut -d: -f1 | while read user; do echo "$user - $(sudo -U $user -l)"; done. One of your sus is probably in the background and is trying to read from the TTY, which is not allowed.

comment How can I set a group policy to all access on all folders except one?
Root access is much different than allowing access to folders. One lets you run executables, the other lets you read files. Please clarify which you are after. If it's just folders/files, filesystem ACLs would do just fine.

comment How can I get a Perl script to read input from both STDIN and command line arguments?
This is off topic for U&L. Should be on SO. I also don't understand what you're wanting. As I interpret the question, the solution is as simple as perl -e 'push(@ARGV, "/dev/stdin"); while(<>) { print }'
