Bash: A Silly wc Example

The wc command is used to count words, characters and lines. Here, we’ll run it a few different ways. -l shows the number of lines in a file. For example, in my home directory, I can use it to see how many lines are in my .gitconfig file:
wc -l .gitconfig
This would output something like the following:
11 .gitconfig
Or count the number of characters with -c:
wc -c .gitconfig
Or check the number of words:
wc -w .gitconfig
You can also run it against multiple files. For example, here I’ll check the number of lines in both my .gitconfig file and my .gitignore_global files:
wc -l .gitconfig .gitignore_global
Let’s say I have a list of numbers and I want to take an average of them. I can use this to quickly figure out how many numbers I have (and so will divide by) before tallying them up.

Remove All Files Except jamf.log From A Directory

You can redirect a log file into a given directory. That directory, if it has other stuff in it, can get out of control. So, here, we’re going to remove all files except that file using the find command:
find * ! -name jamf.log -type f -delete
Once run, the jamf.log is the last file left in the directory.

Statistical Models and Same Sex Marriage

As you’ve likely heard, if you live in the United States (and possibly elsewhere), same sex marriage has now been legalized. And it’s legal in Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina, Denmark, France, Brazil, Uruguay, New Zealand, Britain, Luxembourg, Finland and Ireland already. The trend to legalize same sex marriage started in 2001. And it’s been gaining popularity. At some point, it’s likely that same sex marriage will be universally legal. But when?
 
Let’s ask Excel, using polynomial trendlines. To get started, let’s look at how many countries have legalized same sex marriage. The below spreadsheet lays out how many countries have legalized same sex marriage to date, and when.

To then see a trend line, we’ll add a chart element, selecting Add Chart Element and then select... | Read more »

Announcing compliance toolset for public folders

Office 365 offers a comprehensive compliance toolset that spans Exchange email, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business documents, and Skype conversations. Some customers store valuable information in Exchange public folders, and have requested that we broaden Office 365’s compliance solution to cover public folder data as well. Previously, external archiving solutions were required to meet this need.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the Office 365 archiving and eDiscovery toolset is being extended to include public folders. Customers can now place public folder content on hold to preserve it for legal or regulatory requirements. They can perform eDiscovery functions on public folder data, including search, preview and export. Entire public folders or specific content (based on keywords) can be preserved immutably. They can delete aged items out of public folders. And all administrative activities on public folders are fully audited. Throughout all these operations, users... | Read more »
