IRC server.

I bought a VPS today!

I am hosting a minecraft classic server and an irc server!

Connect to my PERSONAL IRC server at:
Port: 6667

How to search for process's with top & grep

Lets say we run a java program. And you couldn't find it by running the command 'top'...
top | grep processnamehere

and then

pkill processnamehere


kill processpid

Or you could use a task-manager. :)
But if you are using ssh this is really useful.

R.I.P Dennis Ritchie

"When Steve Jobs passed away last week, people said that he had changed computing forever and called him one of the greatest inventors since Thomas Edison. I don't know whether or not this is true, but I can say with 100% certainty that this is a perfect description of Dennis Ritchie.
I can only hope that 100 years from now, when schoolchildren are taught about the great inventors of the digital age that somewhere in every gradeschool history textbook is a section about Ritchie and Thompson. They deserve no less." - (Reddit)

    Inside the tardis.

    Bloody HELL.


    Switched to Linux Mint

    I have been 'hopping' from one distro to another in the past few days. I must say. I really do like Linux Mint. Perfect for newbies. But also good for experts/intermediate users.

    Two thumbs up.
