Good-bye Debian

Posted 08-13-2014 at 05:46 AM by Randicus Draco Albus

I have been a great fan of Debian for the last few years.
1) The commitment to producing a quality system with rock-solid stability.
2) Commitment to the cause of free software.
The result was a reliable system that I was proud to use, knowing I was doing my very small part in contributing to the cause of free software.

Those days are unfortunately past.
By rushing to adopt systemd while it is still in development, the developers abandoned the Debian policy...

grep is such a simple concept. You have a stream of text lines, and you look for lines in the output that match a pattern. Really, really simple.

Take the following, for example:

some-command | grep 'pattern'

I know this is difficult to understand because it's overly complex, but that's how things work on *nix.

Try doing that on PowerShell. You end up with something like:

(some-command|out-strings -stream) | select-strings...

Hi,

Been a while since I made a blog entry. Lot has happened since the initial entry. I am now a LQ moderator that takes up time for my duties. I do enjoy helping other LQ members whenever possible. I have sold the farm therefore the horses had to find a new home and I moved to town to live in a historical home we had to purchase.

Love the convenience of living in town but miss the solitude of the country. I lost all my storage (barn) & workshop. I am in the process...

[bash] "keep trying" command, even if exits with error, for at least 10 times

A script that tries to run a given arbitrary command N times, or until it exits with success. The commented parts are aborted attempts to make it figure whether the first parameter is a number instead of a command, and that would be used as the maximum number of attempts. Something went wrong, sometime I'll try to figure it out.
