Google Apps brings families together

Tim Carroll is a senior product manager on the Office 365 team.
My Knucklehead Son doesn’t want to go to college. No, instead he wants to wander around the country in a Volkswagen camper van, posting his adventures on YouTube for legions of adoring fans, pausing just long enough to cup his hands under a gushing spigot of money piped in by grateful advertisers. I tell him he sounds like Google. I’m a cranky old coot, already, and Yes, I’m determined to crush his tender young dreams. I tell my Knucklehead Son that the best things in life are worth working for, that nothing good ever comes for free, and that knowledge is its own reward. I tell him there will always be the easy way and the right way, short-term answers versus enduring ones, and new experiments trying to challenge time-tested solutions. Don’t get me wrong, the idea of avoiding the expense of four more years of structured education and emotional coddling is not without its allure, but I tell my Knucklehead... | Read more »

Simple Preflight and Sanity Checking in Scripts

I was recently building some preflight scripts and was looking to record some information about a machine live, before proceeding with a script. I found the cheapest way to determine information about architectures and chipsets when scripting preflight scripts for OS X to be the arch and machine commands respectively. For example, to verify the architecture is i386, use the arch command with no options:
/usr/bin/arch
Which simply outputs “i386”:
i386
To check the machine type, simply use the machine command:
/usr/bin/machine
Which outputs as follows:
x86_64h

Scripted Country Geolocations Using OS X’s Built-I...

Recently I was working on a project where we were isolating IP addresses by country. In the process, I found an easy little tool built right into OS X called ip2cc. Using ip2cc, you can lookup what country an IP is in. To do so, simply run ip2cc followed by a name or ip address. For example, to lookup apple.com you might run:
ip2cc apple.com
Or to lookup Much Music, you might run:
ip2cc muchmusic.ca
The output would be:
IP::Country modules (v2.28)
Copyright (c) 2002-13 Nigel Wetters Gourlay
Database updated Wed May 15 15:29:48 2013
Name: muchmusic.com
Address: 199.85.71.88
Country: CA (Canada)
You can just get the country line:
ip2cc apple.com | grep Country:
To just get the country code:
ip2cc apple.com | grep Country: | awk '{ print $2 }'
Finally, ip2cc is located at /usr/bin/ip2cc so we’ll complicate things just a tad by replacing the hostname with the current IP (note that... | Read more »

Government agencies across the nation constantly look for ways to deliver increased value while using limited resources wisely.

Opposite Day: Reversing Lines In Files

The other day, my daughter said “it’s opposite day” when it was time to do a little homework, trying to get out of it! Which reminded me of a funny little command line tool called rev. Rev reads a file and reverses all the lines. So let’s touch a file called rev ~/Desktop/revtest and then populate it with the following lines:
123
321
123
Now run rev followed by the file name:
rev ~/Desktop/revtest
Now cat it:
cat !$
Now rev it again:
rev !$
You go go forward and back at will for fun, much more fun than homework… Enjoy!
