    Is "weather" a binary or data file vs text file? The "-a" flag is to process such files as if they were text files. If it is already a text file you shouldn't need the "-a" flag.

    I wonder if you have grep aliased to "grep -a" on your Mint install and maybe that is why it works both ways there?

    Still running slackware.

    Slack on the Rpi. Need to check that out. Almost bought an eee, but my budget prevented it. Coud is the way to go, but do not want to ge dependent on it.

    Bsd is cool. Like that you can do an install OpenBSD from just a floppy. Pxeboot to web server to do the install is fun also. Have an old machine with 5.4 that I never really looked at. Time to replace that with 5.7.

    old script Version 5.6 - i386 (need to update to 5.7)

    dhcp net0
    kernel -n img http://static.netboot.me/memdisk-iso iso
    initrd -n img http://ftp3.usa.openbsd.org/pub/Open.../i386/cd56.iso
    boot img

    Still running slackware.

    I have a graveyard of old machines at my house that have seen less activity lately with my increasing usage of cloud technology, but I'm pretty certain that the majority of them would boot up (pxe ftw) to the OpenBSD installer and be able to contribute to my network in some way. Just a few days ago, in fact, I booted up an old Dell laptop (Celeron, I believe) and installed OpenBSD on it so it could serve as a smokeping latency tracker. Works like a charm.

    That is pretty slick, very motivating. Though not as old, I am thinking of putting a stripped down installation of Slackware on my old Asus EEE PC 2g Surf netbook and running that as a Mozilla sync server server. After that I will put Slackware ARM on my raspberry pi and set up a samba server. Just have to get a self powered external enclosure for a few of these 2TB SATA drives I have laying around.

    Happy Hollidays!

    Isn't it the most absolutely wonderful thing to see an old machine, long since "forgotten" by mainstream OS vendors, brought back to life with a bang by an OS like Slackware or one of the BSD's? I really love seeing my 400 MHz UltraSPARC serving network requests on my home network.

    And Happy Holidays to you and yours as well.

    Thinking of my favorite martian.

    I misread the title. I thought it said, "martini."

    True. It has been so long sine I set it up. I think I had to install at least the cacalib.

    Scrabble.

    I did something like this for WordWhomp on pogo.com. If you aren't familiar, the game is simple: you get 6 random letters and you have to come up with as many real words as possible in a (short) amount of time. I wrote an AutoIt script to automate playing the game (lame, I know haha) by reading a word list (sort of like what you're doing) and entering those keystrokes automatically. Once it had a good list of words for a set of letters, it wrote out a temp file of those words and used it in the future.

    That was a fun little project...you're absolutely right, the only limitation is the imagination.

    Cheap camera with low batteries in low lighting. When I get everything bolted down, I will take another picture where there is better lighting.

    My first (well almost) php program.

    Thank you for your comment. I will probably update it at some time with your concerns as part of it. Right now the server the code runs on is not accessible by the real world. I have to crawl before I can walk so to speak in learning php programming. I will definitely consider your page and other ones like it such as http://php.robm.me.uk/.
