  • Linux for your Loved Ones

    Few things in this life are more frustrating than trying to provide tech support to loved ones. If you’re reading this, odds are you’ve run into this experience yourself at some point in your life. Now, I should point out that no operating system is completely free from bugs. Even the most locked down devices,… Read more »

    Backing Up Only Recent Files

      Gnarly Backup School Series Getting backups done is important. Sometimes what you have to backup and what you want to backup make quite the contrast. Consider I never want to back up my .mozilla/firefox//cache directory. Let’s cover how to avoid that. Because if you don’t, things get really bunk, little dude. Before you freak… Read more »

    Installing Ubuntu MATE on a MacBook Pro with UEFI

    Back in October, I explained how you can install Ubuntu on a Mac. It was a complete guide that included everything from dual-booting with OS X down to making sure the you’re able to use the right tools for the initial partitioning. In this article, we take it to the next level by doing the… Read more »

    Making a Non-Spamming Alert using Diff

    Being on pager duty is a downer. And it’s a big mistake that ruins the on-call or first-responder position when you allocate no-no time to actually invest in a useful reporting platform. Like many before me, I used to create exactly that evil: write a bash script, and throw it in cron. Example of the… Read more »

  • Schedule Tasks with Cron

    I tell people who are curious about Linux that you really don’t need to open a terminal to run a Desktop. The terminal is a scary thing for noobs. They get the willies when you start talking about it. While it is true that modern desktops provide pretty much all the point-and-click functionality you could… Read more »

  • Parsing a Git Patch with Bash

    I probably could have done this in perl and it would have been much faster…but I could say that about a lot of things. My problem is that Perl is not my command-line. Perl can be a REPL, but bash always is a REPL. Ever look at a patch file? If you’re a programmer that… Read more »

  • Divided Over Ubuntu’s Unity

    I find it very ironic that one of the most divisive things that ever hit the Linux scene is a Desktop Environment called Unity. For those of you who are late to the party, Unity was introduced by Canonical in 2010 and became the default desktop experience on Ubuntu with the release of Ubuntu 11.04…. Read more »

  • Manage your Linux Box with htop

    There is one application that I simply must have on every Linux system I install and that’s htop. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a virtual machine or installed on hardware. It doesn’t matter what distribution it is or whether the system is running a GUI Desktop Environment or not, I gotta have htop. It has… Read more »

  • Thinking Outside The (Linux) Box

    My washing machine has a leaky valve, it has had this problem for a while now. It comes and goes. Sometimes I hear it dripping water into the tank, sometimes I don’t. Now, some folks would run to call a service technician, or the more “DIY-minded” might attempt to replace the offending valve themselves. I,… Read more »

  • Supercharge Your Command Line With Fish Shell

    Linux has no lack of command-line shells. There’s ‘sh’, ‘bash’, ‘ksh’, ‘zsh’ and more. To get the most out of them, however, requires a bit of learning, time and work; something many of us don’t have time for. For those of us who want the power and pretty without the pain, there’s one shell that… Read more »
