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 Apache httpd cannot parse php on CentOS 7
Shadin - you need to figure out why apachectl configtest says you've got php5_module loading twice. Find that out, and you've got a big hint about the error_log message.

They may not be required for PCI DSS compliance now - I saw them in a preliminary version in 2006. I haven't had a reason to read something that boring in a while.

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!

comment How do I grep on a live log (stdout)?
@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.

revised How do I grep on a live log (stdout)?
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.
