POSIX I/O must die.

Saw that. It was a particularly poorly-written and ill-conceived article which did not make one single coherent point to support the tagline. Jon "maddog" Hall, ancient hacker, summed it up correctly in the comments section.

MS-DOS served us well, especially when put on a network with Netware. Maybe you are just too young. And re a movie being a file system.. well, sure, there is no reason a DVD with all its different elements can't be represented as files on a device. That's what they are, aren't they???

MS-DOS was sufficient (even if not best of breed) for the first couple of generations of IBM PC's. Even Microsoft knew at the time that it would be outgrown. During the days of MS-DOS 2.X they repeatedly stated that the intended upgrade path was eventually to Xenix.

It wasn't until they blew it by abandoning that intention and pursuing the Windows path instead, that they really became the operating system vendor that everyone loves to hate. (And yes, I've tried Windows 7, and it's just as bad as Windows 1.)

Agreed. I have Win7Pro.x86 at home and WinXPpro.x86 at work, but on all of my computers that actually make any difference in the world, all 3 run Ubuntu9.10.

(Win7 == Win1.0) && < Ubuntu9.10

Ok unixheads, answer me this:

RFC2553 specifies that you can open an IPv6 socket, bind it to "in6addr_any", and accept connections from both IPv4 and IPv6 clients. I have confirmed that this works properly on Linux.

From what I can find through a bit of Googling, the only operating system that ignores these semantics is OpenBSD (which only accepts IPv6 connections on a socket bound to in6addr_any).

Is that correct? Or are there other operating systems which require double the work to support dual stack server programs?

remind me again how to copy a bunch of files keeping symlinks and permissions? I have to move a lot of junk from one machine to another.

rsync. Always use rsync.

rsync -va --rsh=ssh /local/path/ root@remote.server:/remote/path/

or if it's on the same machine

rsync -va /source/path/ /destination/path/

Always make sure the target directory is already created and that you include the trailing slash.

yeah, I remembered the rsync way after I asked, worked out well enough.

I just did something scary by accident.
rm -rf
why doesn't it give an error that there's parameters missing?

Maybe it thought you were trying to delete a file called "-rf" ? What operating system did you run it on?

Thanks, smartypants. I'd like to know whether it's AT&T rm or GNU rm.

They say it's supposed to do that. I don't buy it.

It's GPL. You don't have to buy it.

I think GNU rm added a new feature in recent history where it won't accept '/' as a target.

Maybe a new feature request is in order: '-r' flag won't work without additional '--fuckme' option. When wildcard , '.', or '..' are target, requires additional '--til-im-dead' option. I should submit a patch.

okay, try this:
rm -rf /usr

You probably won't get any response. this is good news?

I happened to type rm -rf and hit enter by accident and it came back.
The fact that it came back immediately made me realize it couldn't have done anything too bad, before I had a panic attack.
