This is a nicely-written primer for using kill and a list of common signals. Below is a list of a few common signals, the numeric value of that signal, the action that is associated with it and how to send that signal to a process. This list, while not complete, should cover general usage of the kill command. Source: Understanding the kill command, and how to terminate processes in Linux | Benjamin Cane

Geek post! 🙂 There are a few utilities that I use that are not well known, but I find critical. One of the ones that I use most is Synergy. It’s function is straight-forward: share one mouse and keyboard among multiple computers. What makes Synergy awesome, though, is how far above and beyond this functionality Synergy goes.

I think I probably have talked or written about this before, but it keeps coming to mind. Once a person is 50+ lbs overweight, our bodies actively start trying to lose some ofLearn More
WeightJournal, August 13th, 2015 – All about exercise! I know, I know, normally when I’ve taken a couple weeks away from this journal, it means I’ve started gaining a ton of weight. That isn’t the case this time – I just completely lost track of days/weeks.
