tar
Posted: Wintermute @ Wed Jan 30, 2013 9:19 am

My first thought on seeing xkcd‘s take on the tar command was “Is he creating an archive or extracting one? And is it gzipped?” 😉

The second thought was “Wow! All those years of compiling from source have payed off!”

(for the record, “tar -xzvf <filename.tgz>” will extract a gzipped tarball, but because of the first two thoughts, took slightly longer than 10 seconds to recall)

How-To Geek has a quick tutorial on how to make your Linux machine wake automatically. This comes in extremely handy for a machine which simply does backups at a preset time.

Welcome back

Welcome back to Nitemare Cafe. The site is currently a work-in-progress (when hasn’t it been?) as I modify phpBB‘s theme to match the colors of the theme that I’m using in WordPress. Thanks to WP-United, the logins are integrated again 🙂 After the theme is updated, it’s time to integrate chat and wiki functions as well.
