Re: 1168: Tar

Out of note i was wondering given the 10 seconds allow for a valid response.

What the shortest valid tar command is:

(Sticking to file name standards etc).

This is my attempt:

Re: 1058: "Old-Timers"

everyone knows that there's no email server on the planet that lets you send more than a 10 MB attachment. You know, why is it that email and large files suck so hard? Back before I knew any better I obliterated the school email server by sending an Access database (not a large or complex one at th...

Re: "Devotion to Duty" discussion

As a nix sysadmin, i'd sit here and soak it up, except i have a new backup strategy to test (yeah some of us actually do that.) Also some work on my baby, a linux iscsi san. Complete with automatic remote initiator configuration, you just throw it a hostname. (scp. ssh and some shell scripts). I mus...

Re: "Retro Virus" Discussion

Everyone seems to think this is about Linux. Maybe I'm stupid, but I thought the joke was something to do with Windows 7 no longer getting viruses... Note win32 (where everyone these days uses 64-bit, but 64-bit XP was a horrendous mess), and the alt-text implication that "year-of-desktop-linu...

Re: "More Accurate" Discussion

Actually, some of them have enough intelligence to track and target units on their own, and they do. Also, I just finished a Terminator marathon which lasted for several days (it included TTSCC) so, Randall... you know the rest. They're still being who to bomb, though, just not where (& possibl...

Re: "More Accurate" Discussion

I really hate to be a kill joy/pedant but this is xkcd.. These are not robots, they are usually described as a UAV, this topic of conversation usually ends up in the murky depths of the definition of the term robot.

Re: My computer's doing this weird thing...

Apple was the first company to market the term "personal computer". That's great and all but i don't think the term 'PC' is ambiguous enough in this context to warrant this response. My laptop has randomly started doing this weird thing where everything I click (online) is opened in a new...
