A very useful command. How many times are you caught editing a file and then need to exit just to redo it with sudo?
Most useful vim tim for sysadmin/devops ever! Save a privileged file with vim without existing from current session. Append following to your ~/vimrc:

command W :execute ':silent w !sudo tee % > /dev/null' | :edit!

It isn't often when I edit files that need superuser access but when I do I have a tendency to forget to sudo it.

So, my sister, +Tania Koutoupis​, came back from Japan last weekend and surprised the children with some toys; including this crazy Japanese Lego-like model of a T-Rex. I was very grateful for the pictures as I do not read Kanji. Delilah and I just finished it.

It stays together fairly well. The pieces are not going anywhere.

This explains the leak under our kitchen sink. The extension pipe corroded so badly that it was crumbling to the touch. Damn brass.

The past couple of days I have been playing with GNOME 3 and GNOME Shell themes. Here is:

* Paper GTK and Icon themes
* Petitlepton GNOME Shell theme
* Dash to Dock Extension

It should be fairly obvious that I am liking the Material design.

Bring me my monocle. I want to look rich.
By profession I am an experienced Linux/UNIX developer working on embedded, kernel/device driver, and application development. I am fluent in Greek and even spent some time teaching myself an introductory level of both Biblical Greek and Hebrew (along with a general understanding of Semitic grammar); which in turn was used to publish two of my three books based on history and theology. I am also author of multiple Linux related articles published in issues of Linux Journal, Linux Pro, and Linux+ magazines. When I am not busy being a good husband and an excellent father (of two), I spend my free time writing device drivers and applications for Linux projects. This includes writing kernel code.

I've collected 10 awesome coffee sayings that perfectly express your feelings for coffee.

This is my favorite museum in the entire Chicago land area. It is a relatively decent size and you can spend half a day viewing all of the historical artifacts and sculptures. The primary focus of this museum and the campus' archaeology department is the ancient Near East. So it is super exciting to see things from cultures less commonly shown in more mainstream museums. You will find items from Sumerian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Hittite / Luwian, Israelite, Egyptian, Persian, Nubian, etc. cultures. I love this museum so much I consider it a second home and have visited it more times than I can count.
