Cloud Architect and article writer for the print media. Interested in Linux, Puppet, SaltStack, Cobbler and all sorts of "cloudy" technologies. Furthermore I like IT security and scifi stuff, gaming, good movies, soccer and tabletop soccer.

When I am not learning some new amazing stuff or hanging around on serverfault.com, I am usually watching a movie or hang out with some friends in my favorite tabletop bar.

Why am I hanging around on stackoverflow-sites? To get in touch with skilled people, learning new stuff every day, contributing to the community.

comment Replace sensitive IP addresses in Wireshark with XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Does your package capture file contain any binary data? If yes, try strings <filename> |sed -i 's/10.10./XX.XX./g' -

comment LDAP connection working for some applications but not others
telnet is not supposed to speak any protocol, besides TCP/IP. You still should be able to telnet to the LDAP port and see if a connection could be established or not.

comment AutoFS+LDAP doesn't work on boot (but does if I restart it)
Could be a timing problem. Have you looked at the log of the last boot what happens before?

Just to tell you: there is colordiff for all those nasty diff commands. Eg. svn diff |colordiff -> woho!

Scalix does have its advantages. However this groupware solution is considered as being dead.

So the only thing left would be that the white devices are there to hold the CPU cooler.

comment What is this plastic white thing that came with my motherboard?
Haha, this is really a though one! Well, your motherboard seems to have holes for the screws, so these white things are not needed for adjusting the motherboard.

comment How does Google Chrome know where I am despite the fact that I'm using a proxy?
Thanks for the update. I think Akito's reply is in fact the better one - they might be determing your location based on where the DNS lookups come from.

Your question is for Microsoft, not for us. We can't answer it, although the reasons seems to be clear.

comment Where can I force a specific DNS server to be used on OS X?
Hm, OS X is still Unix. You could modifiy the /etc/resolf.conf (or the adequate counterpart of it in Unix) after you established the VPN connection. Another way might be to set an immutable bit on the file.

comment performance monitoring
You can't use that with dstat. What I am trying to say is that you could read out those values yourself :-) Simply write a shell script which reads the values of <PID> out of /proc/<pid>/<bla> and displays them. With a little more time invested, you got your tool..

Hm, if you know the process ID right after the process started, you could read the content of /proc/<PID>/<file name with stats here>. It should contain both the IO and CPU usage.

dstat reads the values from the /proc file system. With a small delay being recognized, those values should be correct. What results do you see in top, what in dstat? Where exactely is the difference?

comment How to search and copy all the strings beginning with ( “http://www.” ) on a particular website (1000 pages)?
I'd search the web for a decent tool. Use the search term "scan a website for links" in google if you like, this should bring you the desired results.

comment Does apt-cache only show you results based in what is installed?
Let me help you finding that information out by yourself. Run strace -f -e trace=open apt-cache search test |less and see the output. You will find lines such as open("/var/lib/apt/lists/ftp.hosteurope.de_mirror_archive.ubuntu.com_dists_hardy‌​-security_universe_binary-amd64_Packages", O_RDONLY) = 8 which leads you to the folder /var/lib/apt/lists. This is only one of them, usually /var/lib/apt and /var/lib/dpkg contain the locally stored information.
