Still running slackware.

Posted 05-31-2015 at 03:25 AM by peonuser

Just finished running the slackeware 14.1 update on my old Pentium 1 586. The wordpress update is taking a bit longer. Have tried to install all the old CL favorites like sc, but my favorite install is Freebaic. Have been able to port so much of my old software. Need to copy all my new batch files especially the page scrapers. Also installed is the web server for use as a doc server.

If you are familiar with sheet music, you can create a text file that has the noted and timing. But to use data on the Arduino takes a bit of manipulation/

So if you created a file with the following data:

G3-3
F4-8

Days between dates.

Posted 04-11-2015 at 08:20 AM by peonuser

Thanx to an lq user, I was able to get this to work.

Just an experiment to determine the amount of days between two dates. In this case it is the days left in the current presidency.

Code:
#!/bin/bash
D=`date +%Y-%m-%d`
D1=`date +%s -d "$D"`
D2=`date +%s -d "2017-01-20"`

Was trying to get a list of systems up on the network. Pingall.sh would not work at all. It was driving me nuts. So I went to another system and it worked.

$ cat pingall.sh
a=""
for i in {1..254}
do
ping 192.168.1.$i -c1 -w1 -v | grep "icmp_seq=1"
done

$ ./pingall.sh
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.623 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.32: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.113 ms
64 bytes...
