What I have used...You can pop snowmen characters ("\u2603") or anything you like in there as well. You could even get character lists from your form, then pass them to the generator as arguments. Compile it, then you could run it from php like so: |/exec(//"./pwgenerator... 1 1

I will be unable to attend. Not enough money to last until the 3rd. I'm no big deal anyway . . . On 08/16/2015 08:00 PM, SLUG Automailer wrote: > ================================================== > Suncoast Linux Users Group (SLUG) Meeting Schedule > ===========================... 0 0

I'm confused. DNS info? dd-wrt? To change name servers, or to update your records? Typically you change your record through a web admin on your DN provider's site, right? Linux client? Are you talking about a hosted server, or just a domain name? Are you looking for a ddns domain... 2 3

I tried doing what you are trying to do a couple of years ago. I bought and sold a few different routers on eBay with the hopes of putting openwrt on and consolidating some devices. My end result was abandoning the idea. I ended up buying a MyBook dual world edition and putting in dual teraby... 1 1

OK, I upgraded my router to a Netgear WNDR3700 and replaced the cables to the NAS and computer with gen-yoo-wine 6' cat6 cables, so the green lights on the router tells me I have gigabit connections to those devices. However, I still get sucky rates. How do I check for packet collisions a... 4 12

Okaaaay... plenty of interest then. It will be at the Pinellas Hack Shack. Firsties get besties. If you have a serious practical use for the hardware (vs. just think it would be cool to add to a collection), call 727 421 6330 to tell me when you are picking it up. I will post the stat... 0 0

One thing that I think Art didn't mention is that this is a 4U rack mount server. Thus Art Eaton hast written on Tue, Aug 04, 2015 at 11:39:09PM -0400, and, according to prophecy, it shall come to pass that: > Anyone want this server? > Has two 1600w power supplies, 4 xeon processo... 0 0

That's probably the configuration for ssh'ing from the MyCloud to another machine. You need to look for a config file for sshd. It may be in /etc/ssh/sshd_config (that's where it is on my Linux Mint desktop). On Tue, Jul 21, 2015 at 4:37 PM, Eben King <eben01@verizon.net> wrote: &... 1 1

Reading further in the lockfile-create man page, you'll see in the example provided that it creates a backgrounded lockfile-touch process to keep the lockfile from getting stale during the long-running process. Presumably, the advantage is that lockfile-create and lockfile-touch both use li... 1 1
