found this via the #TriLUG  mailing list. Quoting the original message:

"xargs is a gender-changer type program that adapts one program's stdout
to the next program's command line arguments. It's extremely handy for
shell scripting, but it can be tricky. I've written a short guide for
xargs that shows how to get around the usual xargs landmines:

Hope you like it.

I love xargs. Use it all the time. Sometimes I use find -exec instead depending on the situation

still routinely astonished at the stupidity of people thinking man has never been to the #moon

On this day in 1969, humans walked on the moon. Now you can visit whenever you want. Just zoom all the way out in #GoogleMaps Earth View and click on the Moon in the “Explore” tab. goo.gl/4WU8pS

Reminds me of a comment I heard a while back:  "To <name redacted>, it's conclusive proof that man and dinosaurs lived together.  To the rest of us, The Flintstones was a cartoon show."

I've started looking into migrating my sites from #Apache to #Nginx ... but keep running into what appear to be wackinesses about Nginx (most likely because I've been running Apache for a decade+, and I expect things to work at least similarly).

I've also looked at migrating from #Wordpress  to something else for blogging (specifically something that supports #markdown), but again have the problem that the learning curve tends to be steep .. and my limited time doesn't always allow for it.

This looks like a potentially-promising setup .. though not thrilled the tutorial is written for a server running #Ubuntu instead of #Fedora  or #CentOS. (Still maintain Ubuntu isn't a good server distro.)
 
Create a blog with Ghost and Nginx.
It's simpler than it looks: http://do.co/1IKBdYh

Lou Frenzel offers a typically-insightful look into the problems of driverless vehicles
There is no doubt that the technology behind self-driving cars is impressive. But even with all the state-of-art technology, can they really replace an experienced driver?

looking for resources for a friend on intro to #Linux (preferably of the #RHEL/#Fedora/#CentOS ilk)

also, ideally, they'd be free and self-paced :)

I don't think I knew #PHP6 was a thing. Now #PHP7  is on its way?

I want that set of monitors.
 
Been working from home for over 15 years, gotta have screens to keep an eye on everything. Also, this is a stand up desk, a necessity if you want to keep healthy, as sitting for prolong periods is worst than smoking.   #ShowYourDesk

If you had another row of monitors you could spend your discretionary time playing Hollywood Squares… #showingmyage

I am a big fan of the DO articles.
 
Mod_deflate is an Apache module which allows output from your web server to be compressed before being sent to the client.

Here's how to install it: http://do.co/1dNbf9w
