I'm a hobbyist programmer, part-time sysadmin, and full-time data center management, automation, and cloud computing architect and delivery engineer.

I have experience with myriad editors, shells, and OSes. While I have my [strong] preferences, am pretty much beyond the religious wars of "what's best" when it comes to platform, editor, or toolset: if it works for the problem at hand, and you know it, it's [probably] worthwhile :)

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
@T.C. is right, ArmanX - if you're trying to avoid using flash (SSD), why would you use flash on USB? That's irrational.

comment Swap partition size on a 64 GB RAM computer for memory-intensive work
See also this Server Fault q&a - if you're running Java (and possibly other apps), you want to make sure you have enough swap for them to increase their memory allocations. I personally stick with the RHEL standard of RAM+2 for my swap partition

comment Yum does not install specific RPM version with custom repo
Do you need to feed it the --allow-downgrade flag because it's already aware of the newer version? Also, yum-versionlock may become necessary on that machine forever after.

comment How to find files and directories that are taking too much space in Linux?
btw - since you want to avoid processing /proc .. I made the following adjustment to your command: for dname in *; do if [ $dname != "proc" ]; then find $D -size +10M -type f -exec ls -lh {} \;; fi; done (presumes running from /)

@BaljeetsinghSucharia - let's just close as a duplicate, given that the original was specifically for version 2010, and this was asked for 2007 :)

comment Create a logoff script/task for Windows
it would seem, though perhaps I'm mistaken, that this would run even if all you did was disconnect (but NOT logoff) from an RDP session and then reconnected later
