I like to spend time with my lovely wife, our two beautiful daughters, and our dog. I'm also a fan of geek humor, and I've been known to flip out and write codeā€¦ elegant code, if I'm really lucky.

comment How do I encrypt git on my server?
Does su - git work? Also, what is the point of encrypting the FS if you want to have it always available if the machine is on? Is it strictly to protect against offline attacks?

comment How can I close a terminal without killing its children (without running `screen` first)?
@Mikel that combined with my failure to find any docs makes me think I just imagined that. The Solaris thing was real, though.

@Mikel Before I learned to stop worrying and love the tmux, I used the -p option on a Solaris box. I also have vague memories of doing it on a mongrel CentOS box (possibly zsh has a builtin that supports it?), but I can't find any docs on that.

@valya Glad you found a solution. Just to be clear, though, nohup does work on a running process by using the -p option (if available).

comment Why root's default shell is configured differently with other normal user account's default shell?
@Gilles Right. I chose ksh as root's shell on my NetBSD VPS. I was just repeating the "official" explanation. Frankly, csh is a big reason I like having toor around: I much prefer bash or zsh myself.

comment Has OpenBSD's ntpd replacement been ported to other BSDs? Or Linux?
@jae portage and Gentoo's rc system are both BSDish. There may be other similarities, but those are the specifics I had in mind.

comment Is there a simple flag to prevent installing X and anything that depends on it via ports?
@Maciej Piechotka Do you happen to remember what that is?
