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.

comment Can I have multiple touch screen monitors running separate instances of an application with their own touch interfaces?
No I don't think it would I use VM's for all kind of stuff but that seems like a bad plan to me. Multi-headed X with separate input channels would do the trick with one parent environment instead of vm's.

I second this suggestion that while it is fully possible to do in linux using multiple input devices and multiple head x arrangements, this is probably not the most stable or failsafe arrangement nor most economic when you consider your time involved. And yes I've set it up successfully myself, so I say that from experience.

Full path of what? Self, as in the full path of the running script or some other object? A text string passed to your script as an argument?

comment Space a valid delimiter for email addresses in email header?
As pauska noted in his edit, the RFC that describes how SMTP servers talk to eachother requires that recipients be expressed on separate lines behind their own RCPT command. However it is not clear to me that this is the question you are asking because the mime header data you show is not the chat between SMTP servers but your little package that you feed into a mailer that then interprets that and does all the SMTP talk with other mail servers according to RFC's for you. Can you clarify which part of that pipeline you are working with?

comment Queue based shell in linux?
Well then :) If that oddity of administration IS your gig, then I guess you have to work with it. I do think I would look into some way of sandboxing the users to insulate themselves from harming the box, other users, and ultimately themselves. Some form of lightweight virtualization like vserver might do the trick allowing you to allocate resources more fairly overall while giving them unfettered shells. The little bit of overhead is probably worth it in stability/versatility. Automatically batching shell processes seems like a significant handicap scenario to me.

comment Linux Mdadm + LVM recovery
Thanks for posting your answer. How exactly did you blank the partition table? I'm a little confused seeing as how I run lvm on partitioned devices all the time. Did your raid array have partitions INSIDE itself?

comment What are XSAVE and /dev/xvda1
@paul, I'm a little confused myself but I think what happened is xvda1 etc has always been the device node inside Xen guests (xen virtual device a), however when Amazon started using it they patched the foo out of it so that devices on instances running any of the Amazon AKI's showed up as the more familiar sda. Now that we have the ability to run our own kernels and vendors are making their own, we're back to the standard set of Xen devices because our kernels are closer to stock.
