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.

The Squareroot of Negative Fun

Every now and then, you have one of those days. One of those days where a customer reports that something weird is happening...their database contains *negative* client ids...even though you know for a fact that the client id is an identity column that begins at 1 and counts *up* to MAX_INT (or whatever SQL Server's max integer is). One of those days where you dig through thousands of lines of PHP code to discover that another intern decided to check in a revision where two numeric variables were...

Configure NFS Server and Client Configuration on Ubuntu 14.04

Posted 08-08-2014 at 03:13 AM by sridhar11

NFS was developed at a time when we weren't able to share our drives like we are able to today -- in the Windows environment. It offers the ability to share the hard disk space of a big server with many smaller clients. Again, this is a client/server environment. While this seems like a standard service to offer, it was not always like this. In the past, clients and servers were unable to share their disk space.
Thin clients have no hard drives and thus need a "virtual" hard-disk....

Note to myself, for whenever I get an SSD...

In reality it may not be a factor, but I'd rather spend a few dollars on more RAM to reduce
