Unix in Windows

The love hate rela­tion­ship that is the com­mand line and Win­dows. Any­one that has used Linux and has mas­tered the ter­mi­nal, feels very unpro­duc­tive on Win­dows. I for one feel like that.

Breath of Fresh Air

What makes an unhappy engi­neer? As of late, I’ve been try­ing to answer this ques­tion. Recent events have made be think more and more about this topic. Work used to give me plea­sure, now it’s a chore.I remem­ber a time, not long ago, where I could start and fin­ish a day within...

The Destruction That is Plesk

I did it again, I put my trust in Plesk. Wanted to do some more cleanup, and ended up with very squeaky clean site.I’m start­ing to think I should do back­ups before every oper­a­tion in Plesk. Let me show you, yet another way, how you can destroy your site. Cleanup Again?I wasn’t sat­is­fied...

The world, as seen through my eyes.

It's not until I looked at what was happening on the actual machine, when my smile vanished off my face......
