RE: Client Wants To Transition From Windows To Linux
MS Office = VIM
Desktop email = mutt
Notepad = VIM
Softphone = Slack
Notepad++ = VIM
MS Publisher = VIM (or LibreOffice if your employees are all underachievers)
ScreenCapture = Stop using GUIs
Visio = LucidChart
OneNote = VIM (or Evernote for the underachievers)
RE: Seeking how to improve
Before you take on any new work I would recommend reading "Time Management for System Administrators" by Tom Limoncelli.
Put into practice the principles discussed in the book and start organizing your time.
A favorite quote of mine as of late is: "How you do anything is how you do everything". Don't take on a project or task if you can not afford to give it the time, attention, and resources that it deserves. Failing is okay, but setting yourself up for failure is a waste of time and potential. Always keep a focus on attention to detail and maximize your time and efforts.
RE: wget vs. curl
curlsupports FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, SCP, SFTP, TFTP, TELNET, DICT, LDAP, LDAPS, FILE, POP3, IMAP, SMTP, RTMP and RTSP.
wgetsupports HTTP, HTTPS and FTP.
wgetis part of the GNU project and all copyrights are assigned to FSF.
curlproject is entirely stand-alone and independent with no organization parenting at all
curl offers upload and sending capabilities. .
Seems to me we should be using
curl99% of the time and
wgetwhen we have to deal with a lot of things simultaneously? Am I judging that correctly? Otherwise there does not seem to be a benefit.
I tend to use
wget, just because it's what I'm used to. I know
curlcan do more, but being able to do more isn't always the simple/quick way to go about things, unless you're doing one of @scottalanmiller's one-liners.
Just a thought I had when I was testing some stuff on my vultr instance. You'll likely have both.
Curl is native to RHEL/Fedora based systems. While wget has to be added.
Yep, and it's so automatic to install nano and wget for me that it's almost an afterthought, in addition to any VM templates I have available.
Same. I'd imagine it's the same type of argument as nano vs. vi
If you're not using vi/vim, you're just wrong. No real argument.
Realistically, regardless of preference for wget, you should understand how to use curl. (same with vi)
RE: Why restart works ? Technical reason ?
Another thing to consider is whether this is a workload you are managing as a service, or whether you are providing support to an end user using an endpoint to access services that you support. If it is an end user, the quickest route to addressing the problem is frequently having them reboot. There are usually far too many variables, that directly correlate to the other human in the equation, to afford a reasonable amount of time to adequately diagnose the root cause of the problem(s) they are experiencing.
However, if you are managing a service it is probably better to take a bit of time beforehand and set up proactive monitoring that will provide metrics that can be used to establish baseline patterns and trends that can in turn be observed and used to identify deviations that lead to undesirable application and system states. This will allow you to detect anomalous states and enable auto-healing features that will automatically remedy issues before they get to the point that a reboot is the necessary remediation.
If you are managing immutable/stateless workloads (containers/microservices) that use a service oriented architecture, this is much easier to implement and manage. If you're dealing with traditional monolithic applications it can up the difficulty of implementation by quite a bit.
RE: Charlie Rose - Suspended over Sexual Harassment Claims
This one came out of left field for me as well. I regularly watch Charlie Rose in the mornings on CBS while eating breakfast and getting ready for work, and occasionally watched his interviews on PBS.
What a let-down.
RE: In Demand Jobs / Positions
DevOps Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers, and Cloud Engineers are all highly desired skillsets in my current market. It seems like almost all of the positions are looking for a balanced blend of development, systems administration, and systems engineering experience.
