A "Linux systems specialist", did claim my previous business card and did so from 2001 to May 2013. Now it says "Senior System Administrator" in another company, Stonesoft, which is part of McAfee/Intel Security.

My heart also has a place for FreeBSD.

comment iwatch doesnt email me or appear to doing anything?
Once -- but only once -- I've seen a situation where a previously working incron suddenly stopped working after a longish uptime. In that case only a reboot solved the problem. You might first try to add 'syslog="on"' to your path declaration to see if it's a problem with sendmail or iwatch. If no log entries happen and this is a server you can freely reboot, try rebooting. Sorry if this sounds a bit like Windows administration. :-)

comment xubuntu 10.04 install for 64bit i686
Though I think you mean AMD64, which is much more common even in Intel chips. EM64T was used with Itanium. Or do I remember wrong? :)

comment scp takes more time to copy and stalls
If you try to copy that file to some other server than Ubuntu cloud, is that still slow? Try to first find if it's your uplink that stalls or if Ubuntu cloud is somehow limiting you.

comment rm on a directory with millions of files
I learnt something new while testing this. At least with ext3 and ext4 the directory entry itself remains huge even after deleting all the files from there. After couple of tests my /tmp/test directory was taking 15 MB of disk space. Is there other way to clean that up other than removing the directory and recreating it?

comment My apache is giving file not found error
For a decent response you need to be way more verbose than that when asking questions. Please specify the operating system you use, paste the meaningful lines from Apache error log, show us the Apache config and so on.

comment problem of Configure linux password rules: password shouldn't be the reverse of previous password
Did you try to change the password as root or as a regular user? root can override all kinds of restrictions in many situations.

comment rm on a directory with millions of files
I gotta try more as soon as I get to work. I just tried to create 100 000 files in a single directory and find + xargs + rm combination took 7.3 seconds, Perl + unlink(glob)... combination finished in 2.7 seconds. Tried that couple of times, the result was always the same. At work I'll try this with more files.
