A lot of times these files seem to lag and be incredibly slow even if just a few dozens rows of data.
Here is how you can convert it with "gnumeric":
ssconvert file.xlsx file.csv
You may get lots of weird errors like this but the conversion seems to work fine:
(ssconvert:15244): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: g_object_set_valist: object class 'SheetObjectImage' has no property named 'style'........
Use netstat with the -anpe option. The e option shows the inodes and I do not know if it will always work or if it was by fluke but I was dealing with dozens of SSHsessions and needed to know which session was related to which forward (the PIDs of the SSHand SSHD did not match etc...)
Notice the "59560675" and "59560762" those are almost identical, if you find two sets that are nearly identical except for the last 3 digits they may match (in my ca........
What does VPN stand for?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is a secure way of connecting networks and devices.
In the context we're talking about it will usually be a client-server solution and not connecting whole networks or businesses.
The assumption is that most people reading this are trying to secure their internet connection, privacy and hide or change their IPaddress.
Why use a VPN?
There are many........
First of all if you're getting this error it is a result of extreme database activity. If you aren't expecting it or it doesn't make sense to you 99% of the time this is a database driven script being exploited (some common examples I see often are things like phpBB being hit by dozens, hundreds or thousands of bots making constant DB write requests).
The easiest way to identify this is to restart MySQL and then run the third party tool "mtop" and you'll see all........
There was an error creating the child process for this terminal
Failed to create pipe for communicating with child process (Too many open files)
I get this when trying to open a new tab or new window even. I've had far more sessions open (literally dozens)before without getting this error.........
I closed program by program untilI found the culprit, it's baffling how the cause was Thunderbird but then again it does use a lot of memory and I have thousands of messages between dozens of mailboxes.
But still I don't think this should happen and Xorg shouldn't allow this either.
So for those who have mysteriously high CPUusage from Xorg start closing program by program until you find the culprit.
The interesting thing is that after reloading it, the Xor........
Let's keep this simple, it's horrible, not only is the picture quality horrible (it's not a big deal) but the keyboard input is an issue. You have to type slowly, lightly and carefully otherwise 1-keystroke could end up being dozens of keystrokes.
It's also a confusing unit for many datacenter techs, I've seen these units hooked up wrong and the instructions themselves aren't clear. I had to resort to shipping one to my office and take my phone pictures of the setup for th........
The best way is to use rsync, I've set it up so it doesn't copy unnecessary files, or at least ones I'm sure aren't needed.
Here is the rsync command Iused (adapt to your specific Thunderbird profile location):
rsync -hazv firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/user/.thunderbird/sbrer.default/* /home/user/.thunderbird/4nyb0.default/ --exclude=global* --exclude=Cache --exclude=ImapMail --exclude=Mail
This is a great way to get your e-mail accounts going on a new c........
A lot of people become nervous (and understandably so) when checking their auth or security logs, in Centos /var/log/secure and see dozens, hundreds of even thousands of attempted logins to various services, especially SSH.
Of course you could manually block these people/IPs but no one has time to read the logs like that, what if some program or script could do it for you?
This is what denyhosts does for you, it checks the logs and based on a certain number of failed SSH attem........
It may be hard to find by Googling by it's really quite simple and quicker than reading dozens of man page entries.
sed -n 5p somefile.txt
Just replace the 5 with whatever line you want to be printed.........
Have you ever found a website/page that has several or perhaps dozens, hundreds or thousands of files that you need downloaded but don't have the time to manually do it?
wget's recursive function called with -r does that, but also with some quirks to be warned about.
If you're doing it from a standard web based directory structure, you will notice there is still a link to .. and wget will follow that.
Eg. let's say you have files in http://serverip/documen........
These are the only two I've encountered but here is the low-end and note my story is not at all unique.
In my case I was scammed out of money and did not receive any service at all from either company.
Santrex never provided any working server, I believe it was just a dummy management Solus server because the server said it was booted but never connected to the console. I complained to them and eventually the support adm........
This server was experiencing loads of up to 80 and maxing out the RAM and kmemsize on a CPanel VPS. There were literally dozens if not hundreds of exim processes. I have no idea why exim has such a design that would allow it to consume this much CPU and RAM. Any normal MTA should not be spawning so many processes, it should be processing them in sequence and if it is going to spawn hundreds of processes in response to a large volume of mail, it's better to have a delayed del........
