I know textbooks are expensive but really?

JNCIA-Junos is the lowest tier of the Juniper certifications. If it is in AUD then it's only about 1300 USD or 1100 EUR.

But hey, you get free delivery!

Dijkstra can solve any problems with graphs. Including trolley problems.

More annexion then connexion though.

I don't always do cybercrime...

but when I do, it is with htop on a giant screen.

The watch program from the package has a new trick. Someone asked if there was a way to truncate the output instead of line-wrapping.

Watch already detects the width of the screen because it uses ncurses to output the lines so it needs to know where on the screen the next character will go. It was just a matter of hooking into the "run out of width" part of the code and eat the input until we hit an end of line.

So soon if you want to chomp those lines, you can!

I had this book as a kid. I couldn't afford an assembler so I had to write in machine code by hand assembly.

Just like the picture I'd write the operators on the left and convert it to decimal.

E.g loading the accumulator was
LDA 42 = 169,42

I had a 6510 not a 6502 but they were pretty close. Clearly the picture is not 6502 because 0x3E is ISC not LDA and LDB is not ASL.

The fourth opcode is probably STA.

If you are working on packages, make sure the environment is pleasant.

The Drip Gorge near Ulan NSW.

Goulburn River is not near Goulburn and not much of a river either but it's a pleasant walk.

Apparently had an old website I built, like, ten or more years ago. Today it, and the terrible logo I made, has rightly gone away.

Are you one of those people with some mad system with lots of CPUs? Having a hard time trying to see them all? Well top is coming out with two new features.

The first is two CPUs per row for wide (about over 160 columns) screens.

The second is to be able to group cpus into, um groups, so you can see pairs of cpu stats aggregated or 4 aggregated etc.

In other news, the entire Galaxy in Star Trek is completely decimated by Space Coronavirus because they have terrible procedures.

Rottenest Island is off the Western Australian coast and is home to these little guys called quokkas. One of the first European explorers to visit thought they were giant rats and gave the island its name which in English is " rats nest".
