My first computer was a Radio Shack Color Computer 3 - 6809-based, running OS-9 Level II. It could run 32 processes at once, due to bank-switching a whole 1 Meg of memory.

After that, I got an AT&T 3b2, also known as a Convergent Safari. This was a Motorola 68010-based desktop.

Then, I graduated to a NeXT black&white "slab". I bought a used SPARCStation IPC in 1995, and put NetBSD 0.9 on it. I ran NetBSD on the IPC and a SPARCStation 10 until 2002.

I've been using Linux since 1997, starting with a DEC Alpha-based UDB, and downgrading to a x86 PC in 2002.

I run Arch linux, on my server and my laptop.

comment unix system with malware
I'll confirm the last paragraph: Linux anti-virus only runs where corporate policy is rigid and stupid enough to require it. At least early revs of what became the PCI DSS had level 1 merchants running anti-virus on all servers, no exceptions, so such policies do exist.

comment How do I grep on a live log (stdout)?
@DisplayName - to do that that answer wanted, you need to put a '>' (right angle bracket, or "less than") sign before the /dev/null file name.

comment debugging iptables when tunneling one VPN through another
Bravo! +1 for the recursive nature of the task you want to do! I have no experience with SSH tunneling, but I applaud your sense of style!

@muru - good point, I read it wrong the first time through. I've changed my "grep -v" paragraph to indicate maybe how to fix that problem.

Change the paragraph about grep -v to emphasize how to change the pattern to filter more things.

comment Is there a way to get the min, max, median, and average of a list of numbers in a single command?
@AdamKatz - these are great changes, but as it stands, I didn't write the program. My awk script is now substantially different. I almost feel like you should take credit for the above program, in order to give credit where credit is due.

comment SQLPLUS value in variable- not working from crontab
@user3377923 - your .profile may indeed contain that, but your script doesn't source .profile, it executes it. put ". " (dot space) in front of "~/.profile" to get ksh to source .profile rather than execute it.

comment Cannot run Perl code as CGI script
@MarkoFrelih - update your question to add HTTP error code that you get when invoking the Perl script from your browser, and also cut-n-paste the entire URL you use to invoke it. Does the /var/log/http/access_log file show that Apache even received the URL? I think you might not even be asking for the script correctly.

comment Cannot run Perl code as CGI script
By what URL do you try to access the reboot.cgi script? You've got a Listen 80 directive, which seems weird, but also seems to work on my Arch laptop. Tell us the entire URL, including the "http://" part.

comment Cannot run Perl code as CGI script
@MarkoFrelih - is the reboot.cgi script marked executable? Is it located in the CGI-BIN directory, which I think is /srv/http/cgi-bin/? Is that directory readable and executable by the "http" user ID?

comment Cannot run Perl code as CGI script
Can you tell use what HTTP error code comes back from Apache? A 404, a 500, or a 302 or even something weirder?
