If you have configuration files under git control, or plan to. This script will handle editing of files and checking in the changes when complete. Hopefully someone will find it useful :)
Where I work we have a lot of people editing configuration files for various different things, DNS, Nagios etc. So to stop conflicts and also to ensure that all changes are tracked and we can reverse ...

Apple is on a tear: shares up over $100 in a month, big product launches looming and a massive untapped market of tablet and computer buyers. Here's why it won't slow down anytime soon. Read this blog...

There's a lot to like about Apple's products. I regularly want to throw my iPad2 at a wall though. Haven't felt that way as often about my Android phone. I will admit that the launcher for my phone crashes way more often, but it also nicely recovers itself. When my iPad barfs (which it has 3 times in 6 months), it's restore-or-nothing which makes it a long process to get it going again and I lose any data that hasn't been synced to a computer. And woe betide me if I were to take it on holidays and not take my laptop!

I think there's room for all three (Blackberry's gonna die, like WebOS, Bada and Symbian - stuff to like in each, but I think three big players is enough). My husband has a Windows phone and for what he wants it's truly spectacular and a rock solid OS. Any tool that tries to be everything for everyone is doomed to be a compromise. That's why Apple survived at all - Macs were always excellent educational/artist boxes. Android comes closest to a jack-of-all-trades with its tweakable widgets and replaceable launcher, but realistically some people are going to want ultra-customisable, some are going to want business-focused (which is why I think Windows Phone is going to bleed Blackberry dry), some are going to want sexy with lots of features that just works in a unified system (iPhone + iTunes, though I know people who hate their iPhones), some will need phones that are designed to take a beating (the iPhone will never be a plumber's phone), and some just want things that make a phone call without baffling them.

e.g. Even Ms "Please Explain" was a storm in a tea-cup. When Australia gets to the point where a political party used to be "Terrorists" (but trust us, that is all behind us now as we change the party name see) or out-right corrupt (so much so they joke about it rather than try to cover up anymore) or starts in on its own population because they have a slightly different religion, belief, ancestry, complexion, gender, surname, etc ... even if we get a 10th of way towards that, you may have a point.

Case in point, the USofA's political system/process. Hanson got a single seat on one of our two houses of government. Palin ran a state and a real shot at VP. An order of magnitude in problem size difference at the very least.

While I am not a Gillard fan (nor am I a hater), I was very chuffed that Australia didn't play the (non-)belief card at the last election. Try that in a large majority of other countries.
