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 :-)

This smells like deleted files still open. Does a reboot end up freeing the space?

comment login command not prompting for username/password
This sounds like you're abusing login for things it wasn't meant to do. What is it you're really trying to accomplish?

comment Permission denied while getting the md5sum of a file using shell script?
Just an FYI, you don't need the for loop (unless you have a large number of files). md5sum "$PRIMARY"/* | awk '{ print $1 }'.

comment Why can I not source a file with the default cron installed on a debian wheezy server?
Not true. man 5 crontab: "The ``sixth'' field (the rest of the line) specifies the command to be run. The entire command portion of the line, up to a newline or % character, will be executed by /bin/sh or by the shell specified in the SHELL variable of the cronfile."

comment Disable incoming telnet connections
Being able to use the telnet utility to connect to a remote port does not mean that remote server has telnet running. From your description, it sounds like you're connecting to port 22, and getting sshd's banner. You cannot disable this, and you shouldn't either as the version number is used to ensure compatibility between client & server.

comment How do I convert a date to milliseconds since Unix epoch in bash?
Linked question is in regards to the current time, as of when the command was run, not converting an existing time.

Why not use mouse=nv, so that it's not enabled during insert mode?

comment How can we measure performance overhead resulting from writing to files or folders?
If you simply want to get the amount of time not directly running your application code, you can use time for this. Disk I/O and other operations are performed by the kernel, thus they show up as sys-time. Time spent in userspace (your application) is user-time. See stackoverflow.com/a/556411/486035
