I'm a professional sysadmin in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. I've been doing sysadmin work since 1996, I've worked for a smattering of companies including Red Hat, two academic institutions, a regional bank, and now a rail transportation and logistics company.

comment CentOS: View all users in a specific group
Updating /etc/group is one way of recording new group memberships. I'm not really sure if this is supposed to happen automatically or not. I'd need to know a lot more about your environment before I could really have any idea where to look next.

comment Error while executing bash command stored in string
If you don't want to accept the answer, you don't have to. I don't recommend using eval as it's far to susceptible to injection attacks. Ultimately, the answer is "You're using the quoting wrong, fix it." How you fix it is up to you and not part of my answer.

In the man page I'm looking at, the filter rule is surrounded by single quotes. This avoids interpolation of the string within the quotes, as opposed to double-quotes which allows interpolation.

comment Use Excel to sort and filter data
How are you going to examine a month of data (which I'm assuming is set to 4 weeks for simplicity) if you only have one week's worth of data? Or am I missing something?
