I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

You've said about half a dozen times that people make mistakes so you obviously have a handle on what your issues are/were. Some of your potential voters however are in the dark. How about you explain what your mistakes were, how you learned from them, and what your platform is. I don't care to hear talk about diversity of ideas providing balance, I'd like to hear what your views are. We're not voting for diversity, we're voting for you. Or not. Give us something to go on here besides rhetoric. When should questions be closed? Left open? What would you be campaigning to change around SF?

comment Crond offset five minute schedule
Putting the sleep in the script itself is an ugly hack that makes running the script by hand from the prompt painful. There is a less ugly way to hack that by making the sleep part of the crontab entry, but an even more elegant way is to just offset the jobs using the correct crontab notation, which your answer doesn't touch on.

comment How to find out which Linux distribution I'm logged on to
@ychaouche: See comment above. First test with uname and if all you get is generic, test for lsb_release and use that.
