xargs guide

Hi all,

xargs is a gender-changer type program that adapts one program's stdout
to the next program's command line arguments. It's extremely handy for
shell scripting, but it can be tricky. I've written a short guide for
xargs that shows how to get around the usual xargs landmines:

Hope you like it.

Hi Shlomi. I use Amazon's SES server for outgoing SMTP, and use
Gmail's Google For Business to receive mail. SES is very inexpensive,
very reliable, and my mail never get marked as spam. I do use SPF
records, of course. Also, with SES I can use any outgoing email
address that I like, which is good as I use a catch-all domain.

Any Chrome extension developer looking for a project?

Hi,

I'm looking for a Chrome extension which can do the following (copied from my unanswered question at https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!msg/chrome/hIH8rDKCpgI/aYD_rvSSW6AJ):

I'm logged in to two accounts on my workplace Chrome in parallel, let's call them "work" and "home". I keep at least one Chrome window open for each account.

I sometimes click on links which are only accessible to the "work" person, but they are opened by Chrome on whichever was the last window I was in, i.e. sometimes Chrome tries to open the link as my "home" account (and fails). I then have to copy the link and re-open it in a new tab on the "work" window.

What I'd love to have is to be able to specify URL substrings (e.g. prefixes, for instance "https://bitbucket.org/work/*" or "https:work.atlassian.net*") and tell Chrome "If you are sent these URL's then open them using the 'work' account".


Now, since nobody could point me to an existing way to do that, and I couldn't find such an extension myself, I thought it might be an interesting project for someone who knows their Chrome stuff.

Any takers?

Thanks,

--Amos

Seeking Recommendations for a Good Outgoing SMTP Service

Hi all,

can you recommend a good [and possibly paid] outgoing SMTP service that I can use for my <at> shlomifish.org addresses? The ideal service will be:

1. Reliable - messages I sent from it won't be filtered/marked/bounced as spam.

2. Affordable - I'm willing to pay but certainly cannot afford to pay too much.

3. With a responsive customer service.

===========

Currently I am using hostgator.com for my <at> shlomifish.org E-mails, but I cannot send E-mail to Linux-IL and am also getting many bounces after sending E-mail to <at> perl.org addresses. Recently I also got a bounce from a Yahoo Groups mailing list I administer.

Regards,

-- Shlomi Fish

P.S: someone recently told me that maintaining an SMTP server has become a "lost art" , because it has grown to become so complicated that it requires full time commitment. This is a sad state of affairs.

[Off Topic]: Speedy Mail 2.0 - a new webmail platform in Python and Django

To Linux-IL people,

I'm interested in creating a new webmail platform based on Python and Django, which will be free software & open source - Speedy Mail 2.0 (Speedy Mail 1.0 and 1.1 were based on a Perl software - Endymion MailMan web-mail, from 2000 to 2005). I want Speedy Mail 2.0's features to be as similar as possible to Gmail - with labels (a message can have several labels, or none), filters (to apply labels automatically, skip the inbox, mark as read etc.), 12 different stars, composing more than one mail at a time, etc. I would like to know if there is any free software in Python and Django we can base Speedy Mail on, or maybe something in another language (such as PHP) which we can convert to Python and Django? And are you interested in helping me develop Speedy Mail, or do you know where I can find developers who may be interested?

By the way, is there a simple way to convert PHP software to Python, or do we have to rewrite it again line by line? I found some free software packages for webmail, some of them are in Python (Mailpile, Modoboa) and some in PHP (Roundcube, AfterLogic), and there are others not listed here.

Which protocols we should use to connect to the mail server? I understand that IMAP has folders but not labels/tags, does it mean we can't use it? Is it better to use POP3?

Which license do you recommend using? I'm thinking about using the GNU Affero General Public License (Affero GPL), you can read about it on the GNU website - it's like the GPL but also requires to publish the source code if you use it on a server. I think I prefer this license to ensure that if people or companies use my software, they will publish their source code (of course this will have to be enforced).

Thanks,
Uri.

failing to run kdevelop

I just installed kdevelop on my Mageia4 system. When I try to run it I
get the following in a dialog box:

couldn't create slave: "Unable to create io-slave: klauncher said:
Unknown protocol ''. "

I tried running it from the CLI and got lots more error messages (at
least some of them don't seem relevant - deal with Samba and printers).
Any ideas what my problem is? BTW - the program does run but any
attempt to create or save a file fails with the same dialog box. Below
is the output from the CLI.

Eliminating binary from a text file

Hello everyone,

I often have damaged text files (due to a lovely storage system). The files are of different formats, although I can usually assume they contain spaces. The files are structured as lines.

Every once in a while, the lovely destruction (ahm....storage) system inserts binary garbage to the file. I wish to fix the files by removing the cancer without leaving any leftovers. That is, I want to lose partial lines.

I tried using grep with all sorts of keys, but it did not do the trick.
strings catches too little - it leaves partial lines.
Is there an elegant  way to  do the trick line-wise?

Thanks
Orna

Accessibility in August Penguin 2015

This message is for anyone who is contemplating participation in the
upcoming August Penguin 2015, but has a disability which causes him to
need special provisions to fully attend the event.

We plan to have, as in previous years, a notetaker who will transcribe
lectures in one track for the deaf and hard of hearing.

If you need a different accessibility provision (such as a listening
device for the hard of hearing, an escort for the blind, etc.), please
contact me ASAP with information about your disability and what
accessibility provision do you need - even if you are not sure you'll
attend the event.

Thanks,
--- Omer Zak
(Accessibility Coordinator for the event)
