I'm a code monkey with about 8 years of experience. I currently work with Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP, but I have also done a fair amount of Java and SQL Server 2000.

My favorite tools are Emacs, git, meld and the Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000.

comment How can I run svn up as www-data?
You misunderstand. I don't wish to log into the svn server as www-data, I wish to run svn up as www-data, so that the updated files retain www-data as owner.

comment Are star, ring, bus, and tree network topologies still relevant?
@vonbrand poige's point is that if you use a dumb network hub, the network may be shaped like a star/tree but works like a bus, since everything is forwarded to everyone else.

Can you please specify which topologies are still relevant for the examples you give?

comment Are star, ring, bus, and tree network topologies still relevant?
Only until you plug the hub into another hub. Suddenly it's a tree! Also, switches are cooler than hubs. But see, none of this was discussed in the book!

I'm quite aware of that, but there are an unknown set of legacy services on that box. The distro-upgrade will have to wait.

comment How do you remotely administer your Linux boxes?
I think this is a much more useful answer than the accepted one. MC is my preferred tool of choice, especially since it allows you to cd /#sh:<user>@<server>:<directory> to log into a remote machine for browsing and file transfers, and since Ctrl-o temporarily switches you to the console. Another Ctrl-o gets you back in MC with one keypress!
