Worked in the tech field for over 15 years. Started out learning basic on an Apple IIe then on a TRS-80. Been interested in computer hardware and software my entire life. Consider myself lucky that my hobby as a kid/adult is what I get to do everyday earning a living.

Stolen from @Mokubai:

First, please put down the chocolate-covered banana and step away from the European currency systems.

You may consider how to ask a question.

comment Printing to Xerox with XSA accounting from Linux
@artfulrobot - yes you can hard code it. Did you figure out how to disallow the users of the PPD file from seeing these credentials? I believe they're stored in clear text which makes them kinda useless, other than for tracking usage.

comment Determine what MAC addresses are connected to a given port on a Netgear GS724T via SNMP?
Would you mind sharing this script? I'd be interested in using this approach if there is nothing else to go on.

comment How do you increase a KVM guest's disk space?
@IwanAucamp - interesting, I use virt-manager and have used method #1 & #2 extensively before I migrated our KVM servers to a newer version of KVM (CentOS 5 -> CentOS 6). I now use the qemu-img resize method as well.

comment How can I kill all stopped jobs?
Why is this upvoted so highly? It's wrong. If the processes are stopped, then a kill such as this will do nothing, since the processes are stopped, they won't process the SIGTERM (-15) that is sent to them by default.

comment SSH: Local Server has public IP; Remote doesn't
@nishantjr - the issue is that you do not know the IP address that the box connected to the internet that the remote server is connected to. Why not use something like dynamic DNS to get that host to associate its IP w/ a known name so that when it is connected you can find it through this static name?

comment Is there a bash builtin for 'which'?
The first thing in the list of type -a is always what it would execute. I do the same as Glenn and always use type -a too.
