August 21 & it's only 58 in the morning

Hi,

Cold front coming through has cooled down the area for a deserved relief from the 3 digit heat. Nice out! I think that I will wait a few hours to let the dew dry off then play a round of golf today. I can not mow until the lawn dries out since I bag my clippings.

I miss being on the farm but I do like the luxury of my work load being a lot less these days. Sure, I would be baling hay for the horse and storing for the winter feed. Keeps you fit but does wear on you...

Debian 9 - 64bit on ACER E5-573

Posted 08-14-2016 at 08:00 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
Updated 11-05-2017 at 05:58 PM by error_401 (Updated for Debian 9)

This is another update on last years laptop with Debian 8.5 in 64bit with KDE
------------------------------------------------------------------------

As google has stopped support for the 32 bit version of chrome I have updated the known laptop with Debian 8.5. Just did a complete re-install from CD-ROM. Easier than to fumble with the 32bit and try to bring it to 64bit. At the same time we'll see what is working now.

Foreword

And here we go again with another opinion piece and long awaited 3rd installment in this acclaimed series... As with the award winning "decline and fall of the linux forum" and it's sequel, this is merely a platform for some theorising and surmising and exploring just what drives people to participate in such mediums. The fact remains however that we can surmise and theorise all we like and it won't change a damned thing.

Bash variables storing the output of commands run them at each variable statement, not just at some eventual invocation

Meaning that a script line such as:

nowstatus=`mpc | grep '#' | cut -d '/' -f1`

Is running mpc, grep and cut at its very statement, not only from an eventual "echo $nowstatus".

Therefore, in scripts that parse differently the same output of a given command, it may be preferable to first store this output in a temporary file, and then parse this file rather than running the same command several times. Such as in the lines added below their equivalent...
