When Shadows Fall
And trees whisper day is ending
My thoughts are forever wending home

When Crickets Call
My heart is forever yearning
Once more to be returning home

And when the hills conceal the setting sun
Stars begin to peep in one by one

Night covers all
And though fortune may forsake me
Sweet dreams will ever take me home

On My Persian Rug

On my Persian Rug
I can stray far away
Up to the land of my dreams

On my Persian rug
Wishes too all come true
And i'm Aladdin so it seems

Robots bring to me
Gifts of wealth and treasure
Slave girls sing to me
Love songs tender

On my Persian rug
Cares today drift away
Leaving the gold of my dreams

SV:123456:respawn:/command/svscanboot < /dev/null

You want to do this so that when the shell that inittab opens to run svscanboot (it's a shell script) opens the svscanboot script, it doesn't give it descriptor 0 -- because in svscanboot, that descriptor is redirected -- and the shell can't read any more of the script.

Redirecting descriptor 0 in the beginning means that the script gets another descriptor when opened, and it won't get lost on line 6 of the script when descriptor 0 is redirected.

qmHandle is a pretty nifty queue manager.

qmHandle -l lists both local and remote queues

qmHandle -D kills the queue -- how handy. Make sure to restart qmail-send if you do this tho -- if you tell qmHandle how to look up qmail-send's ip, then it'll kill it for you and if you're running qmail under daemontools, it'll restart itself.

RPC port dancing blues got you down?

The trick is the following:

mount -o public server:/directory /mount/point

If the server understands the 'public' keyword, RPC is avoided and all that's needed is a tcp connection on port 2049 to the server. Nifty huh?

A couple of things: First off, you have to edit /etc/dfs/dfstab and add the -o public to your share command. Then you have to unshare / share to activate
