  1. I subscribed to the show on iTunes when I saw the preview and jones for the next episode every week. The one thing that really hit me when watching this was, How useful am I as a unix systems admin in a post apocalyptic world. It made me realize that I need to spend more time hacking together some weekend projects that use my electronics background as well. Mike is definitely abrasive, and can be a dick for sure, but I wouldn't trade him or The Professor (Johns nickname) for anyone one else on that show. The first episode totally hooked me when Mike builds out a powergrid for the colony and then hacks together a generator out of a pressure washer and an alternator. Im so glad other people see that Morgan is a useless POS. "I'm a rocket scientist. I built a record player." I wish they could kick people out. Like Mike should just say, "You don't contribute anything except wall drawings and you eat all of our food. Time to find your own way!" Awesome show! Everyone should watch it. Its one of the best hacking shows on TV.
  2. I asked Enigma in IRC when this was going to be and since it hasn't been posted here yet, please note: June BR813 Meeting Friday June 20, 2008
  3. Many people would find it useful however it may be gone soon if you do. Either way... Great Find.
  4. The webpage maybe, but livinded's script still works.
  5. This is fixed by deleting a few characters from the end of a string in the /etc/sudoers file. Having said that, I don't like ubuntu either. To answer the question in the topic though, there is not good linux distro. Only a good linux distro for you. Experiment with all of them and see which one you prefer. After testing a few back in the day I went with Slackware. It was great for a while but you will evolve and eventually want more from your OS again. I personally pick and choose based on each scenario. i personally have: (1) PowerBook - This is my everyday machine. (2) FreeBSD systems in my house. One is my firewall/gateway. The other is a dev box. (6) FreeBSD Servers. (Web, DNS, SQL, etc) (1) Debian machine that I do testing and anything I dont care about on. and even (1) Windows box for the occasional gaming. Go out there and have fun with it and pick up the one you feel most comfortable with.
  6. What hardware are you having issues with?
  7. I did not mean to say that you didn't, I was just stating that when people get really into it and start seeing how things work they want to make their own. Either way, best of luck to you.
  8. ok, thanks a ton! np. Glad I could help.
  9. I want to learn some c as well. But there are a ton of c programmers too.
  10. Just run the command like this: filename >> outputfile the >> will redirect STDOUT to the file "outputfile"
  11. I saw this but I wanted to take the input from the command line. I am really starting to like perl.
  12. [ ] perl $ cat testing abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz [ ] perl $ ./ testing abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop abcdefghijklmnop [ ] perl $
  13. Ok. Final. Learned all of this in about 30 minutes. my @var = <>; for $line (@var) { my $strlng = length($line) - 11; my $output = substr($line, 0, $strlng); print "$output \n"; } usage: filename
  14. Got the first part working. No I need to learn how to turn the file into an array of lines. Shouldn't be long now.
  15. OK. First, I am a total perl newb. So please don't flame me. The basics of this will be something like this. my $var = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'; my $strlng = length($var) - 10; my $output = substr($var, 0, $strlng); print "$output \n"; I have tested this and it does work but I am unsure on how to use an external file with this. I am researching it now. Thanks for the little challenge.
