Bus error (core dumped)

Posted 03-23-2010 at 01:42 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

Don't you hate it when ideas flow so rapidly that you can't get them written down fast enough? I find myself in this situation sometimes, and it really is quite annoying. On the plus side, if I ever start up my business that I've been meaning to start, I'll have hundreds of plans to fall back on if something goes wrong...even if 5 out of every 6 ideas didn't make it to paper in time =)

Transferring data from Palm Desktop to Thunderbird Lightning...

Script madness! Or, why I love the shell prompt

Posted 03-21-2010 at 08:50 PM by Raveolution

So today I decided I was tired of dealing with a whole large directory of zip files. Since all the zip files were uniquely named, I figured might as well make a corresponding directory name and unpack each one in there.

Good luck doing that in Winderz. But I'm not in Winderz. I'm on a shell prompt. So what's a nerd to do.

Well, so far I worked it out this way. In bash, I did:

for i in *.zip;do unzip $i -d `echo $i| sed -e 's/.zip//g'`;done
