Adjust to suit your needs. Currently this would kill any whois process running for more than 30 seconds or more than 1 minute.
Add it as a cronjob. The motivation is that some commands have no timeout and just end up using up CPU and memory for no reason while never exiting to free resources.
IFS=$(echo -en "nb")
for pid in `ps aux|grep whois`; do
A simple way that may work for a lot of people who just need basic output for their scripts or daemons to announce an action is this:
echo "body or message" | mail -s "realtechtalk.com" email@example.com
If you want to send a text file as the body just do this instead:
mail -s "realtechtalk.com" firstname.lastname@example.org < /tmp/sometxtfile.txt
These are some ve........
It is well known hackers, the NSA, CIA and other groups have created malware to secretly turn on your webcam and microphone on your phone, tv etc.. But fortunately on our computers and laptops we have some options.
Most webcams use the "uvcvideo" kernel module / driver. You can disable this in two ways on boot. I recommend both just as a failsafe.
Disable it on rc.local once your system boots automatically

crontab not working
It is running as user Apache
I've tried 0 0 * * * (which means midnight 00:00) and it does run at midnight but also 13:25 for some reason?
25 0 * * * with this it runs at 00:25 but again also at 13:25
Solution - Restart the Cron Service (especially if you changed your time/timezone)
*Update I had a suspicion that changing the timezone a few weeks ago caused this. I restarted lhe cron service and the problem h........
This made me nervous but it's clearly a cronjob based on the messages log that happens every Sunday at about 4:22.
I actually can't find any evidence of it in cron.d cron.daily but it is there somewhere obviously.
What I don't get is why doesn't this cronjob do a datacheck like Ubuntu's cronscript does? When you unnecessarily rebuild the array you lose your redundancy during that point which makes your data extremely vulnerable.
*Update I did a grep of &q........
This doesn't seem to be widely known (maybe it's in some documentation that none of us read though)but there's an easy way to check the integrity of any mdadm array:
sudo echo check > /sys/block/md0/md/sync_action
-bash: /sys/block/md0/md/sync_action: Permission denied
sudo will never work, this only works as root since echo is not actually a binary/command. It is built-into bash.
Backup Shell Script[quote:aaa4b0b165]#!/bin/sh
mysqldump --all-databases | gzip > /var/backup/backup-$date.sql.gz
Something like that could be useful as a cronjob to locally or remotely backup your databases........
