comment How to go to the n'th character, not byte, of a file?
Hannah just splits the ages of my own two daughters, and as you know the name is used in Hebrew as well as Japanese. If you and your loved every visit Israel, there is a cold beer waiting for you and two friendly girls who would love to play!

comment Why use a PCI System Timer?
Thank you! Is this documented anywhere, either in official Asterisk communications or elsewhere? How does a kernel change mitigate the lack of a dedicated hardware component?

comment Have cron parse SSH config file for server addresses and options

comment What program do you use for spaced-repetition/flash card learning?
I am a heavy Anki and Ankidroid user, and I very highly recommend them. The Anki dev has an iPhone version too, but it is different from Ankidroid and I have not tested it yet (no iPhone).
