Foggy about Security - The Daily WTF
All I can say is: “aWcjaacvc0b!cVahcgc0b!cHaubdcmb/gmzyrcoqhp”.

Using the decoder provided by a commenter <>, that text says
"What. The. Fuck." :-D

[Tutor] What is "pythonic"?
Nothing is really private in python. No class or class instance can
keep you away from all what's inside (this makes introspection
possible and powerful). Python trusts you. It says "hey, if you want
to go poking around in dark places, I'm gonna trust that you've got
a good reason and you're not making trouble."

After all, we're all consenting adults here.

Perl culture is like python in this respect, but Perl expresses the
sentiment a bit differently. As the Camel book puts it,

"a Perl module would prefer that you stayed out of its living room
because you weren't invited, not because it has a shotgun."

But the sentiment is identical.

When seekdir() Won't Seek to the Right Position | micro systems
An interesting story!

"What I found out in the end is a surprise and was not expected: A bug that has been there in all BSDs for almost all the time, since the 4.2BSD times or for roughly 25 years..."

ls - No such file or directory but I can see it! - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
If you see the error “: No such file or directory” (with nothing before the colon), it means that your shebang line has a carriage return at the end, presumably because it was edited under Windows (which uses CR,LF as a line separator). The CR character causes the cursor to move back to the beginning of the line after the shell prints the beginning of the message and so you only get to see the part after CR which ends the interpreter string that's part of the error message.'s so obvious! Just didn't think about it...

One Thing: Extract till you Drop.
archived version of a link from "Function Hell |" post <>

To be clear, *this post* is basically an anti-pattern. Don't just *blindly* extract methods until they "only do one thing."

Function Hell |
a fantastic post about over-extracting functions/methods blindly.

What does the author of Code Complete mean when talking about hiding global data? - Programmers Stack Exchange
From the Accepted Answer:
If that data had only been accessible via a set of accessor/mutator functions ("hidden behind" an interface), then you would only need to change that small set of functions. The code that actually uses the data can remain unchanged.

What. The. Fuck. From a programmer/blogger I respect, too.

There are some interesting comments posted also.

How do I parse command line arguments in bash? - Stack Overflow
Great question; detailed answers result.

And this quote is worth repeating 1000x or more:

Is this really true? According to Wikipedia there's a newer GNU enhanced version of getopt which includes all the functionality of getopts and then some. man getopt on Ubuntu 13.04 outputs getopt - parse command options (enhanced) as the name, so I presume this enhanced version is standard now.

That something is a certain way on your system is a very weak premise to base asumptions of "being standard" on.

BASH array with spaces in elements - Stack Overflow
for loops and arrays...helpful despite the specific nature of the question.

single-quotes are also OK; $IFS seems to dictate what delimiters are valid between array items, as usual (=> default allows tab, space, newline as separators)

usb - A script for copying random folders - Ask Ubuntu
was curious as to the usefulness at first, but the use-case is an interesting one:
" I have a vast music library on my desktop and I'm looking for a way/script to select a random amount of folders (say, 25 albums) and, if doable, copy them onto a USB drive for my car."

Thoughts On Storing Duplicate / Calculated Data In The Database
This is fantastic! He kinda argues with himself in the post (for many of the same points I have), and the comments below are quite insightful (especially the one explaining his arguing voices: "the scientist" vs "the engineer").

Should we use Singular or Plural Database Table Names - CodeProject
So from all of this, we can conclude that plural database names are easier to read and Singular database names are better for mapping. I can now safely say that using Plural or Singular names  for database tables is up to the developer(s) of the project and which they feel comfortable with.

The Laracasts PHPStorm theme - modified.

This is a slightly modified version of the great Laracasts PHPStorm theme. I've added some styles for Verions Control (add, modified, deleted line...) and fixed some missing things like warnings.
