I’ve been using a combination of ps and grep for years now. Apparently, there is an easier way – pgrep and pkill utilities, which are a part of procps package on Fedora and CentOS distributions.
Just as I am posting this, a colleague asks me how to resolve a conflict in git. Hilariously well timed.
Via geek & poke.
In June 2008, Kiribati officials asked Australia and New Zealand to accept Kiribati citizens as permanent refugees. Kiribati is expected to be the first country in which all land territory disappears due to global climate change. In June 2008, the Kiribati president Anote Tong said that the country has reached “the point of no return”; he added: “To plan for the day when you no longer have a country is indeed painful but I think we have to do that.”
As sea levels continue to rise, the government of Kiribati is negotiating a deal with Fiji to evacuate the entire population to areas of Fiji that the Kiribati government would buy. The area of Fiji proposed for resettlement is the second largest Fijian island of Vanua Levu. The mass migration is expected to include younger, skilled workers first, and then the rest of the population would follow over a period of years.
I got rid of my LiveJournal account a year ago. It feels like it has been more. But I haven’t missed it once. I guess that makes it into a good decision.
Back a few month ago I ran the poll on how much you guys hate my automated digests – daily posts that were aggregating my Twitter activity (which in turn was aggregating all my other online activity). And you guys clearly voted that you hated the digests so much. I heard you loud and clear. Since then, the digests were switched into the weekly mode, where they weren’t as annoying anymore.
Today, I am giving you more good news – I have completely disabled them. As I mentioned previously, my new blog theme now supports custom post types, such as status updates, quotes, videos, images, and links. I am using these post types now to publish directly on the blog, and then push content to Twitter and Facebook. Because of this, there is pretty much no other activity on my Twitter (except a few replies and re-tweets here and there). And thus, Twitter digests became obsolete. This one is the last one I’ll have. Until something changes again …
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Crowd Favorite for their awesome Twitter Tools plugins, which I am now disabling in favor of Crowd Favorite’s WordPress theme and Social 2.5 plugin.

Nobody can say if GNOME 3 is better or worse than GNOME 2.
A whole lot of people, yours truly included, have said that GNOME 3 is much worse than GNOME 2. That should account for something.
Every time I tell people that I prefer cold, windy, rainy weather, they laugh at me, telling me that I’ve picked the wrong country to live in. Well maybe. But then they say how weird I am, and how summer is so awesome. How they love the sun and the beach. Well, I hope you all are enjoying it then. While I sit inside, under the air condition turned on to full power.
