github - How can I determine the URL that a local Git repository was originally cloned from? - Stack Overflow |
Newer gits also have 'git remote get-url'.
If you want only the remote URL, or if your are not connected to a network that can reach the remote repo:
<code class="language-bash">
git config --get remote.origin.url
If you require full output and you are on a network that can reach the remote repo where the origin resides :
<code class="language-bash">
git remote show origin

#927669 - nvpy: could not connect to simplenote server - Debian Bug report logs |
This is the standard 'nvpy' package in Ubuntu 18.04. The reason is because 1.0.0 uses the retired Simplenote API. RIP.

Solution is to install it with pip3.

Going mad(1) - TJ Holowaychuk
mad(1) is a tiny tool that allows you to view markdown manual pages. I’m a huge fan of man in general, but the format is pretty annoying and often converted from markdown, textile etc anyway. The output man produces is also pretty bad in my opinion, mainly whitespace issues.

tj/mad: mad(1) is a markdown manual page viewer
Probably want to apply right away, and 'cp *.md' from to ~/.local/share/mad.

This is also a really good template for new Bash utility scripts (good options parsing, local config, a 'share' directory, Makefile, self-update feature).

grub2 - How to get to the GRUB menu at boot-time? - Ask Ubuntu |
Menu will appear if you press and hold Shift during loading Grub, if you boot using BIOS. When your system boots using UEFI, press Esc.

For permanent change you'll need to edit your /etc/default/grub file -- place a "#" symbol at the start of line GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0.

Save changes and run sudo update-grub to apply changes.

HTTP range requests - HTTP | MDN |
If the Accept-Ranges is present in HTTP responses (and its value isn't "none"), the server supports range requests. You can check this by issuing a HEAD request with cURL, for example.
<code class="language-bash">
curl -I

# result:
# HTTP/1.1 200 OK
# ...
# Accept-Ranges: bytes
# Content-Length: 146515

GNU Core Utilities Frequently Asked Questions -
The GNU chown program will change the ownership if the operating system it is running upon allows it. If you can’t change file ownership then it is the operating system which is restricting you and not the chown program.

Actually, the GNU chown command does not know if this is the policy of the system or not. It calls the kernel system call chown() just like any other program (e.g. perl, ruby, etc.) If the OS allows it then it will change the ownership of the file. Different systems handle this differently. Traditional System V Unix systems allow anyone to give a file away to other owners. On those systems GNU chown does change the ownership of files.

But on most modern systems BSD semantics are followed and only the superuser can change the ownership of the file. The problem for documenting this is that GNU chown does not know which it will be running on. It could be one or it could be the other. Or it might even be running on a system without the concept of file ownership at all! This is really an OS policy decision and it is hard to track documentation to be different on different systems. But the documentation must be independent of operating system.

The reason an operating system needs to restrict changing ownership is mostly threefold.

A user can create files that they cannot remove. With the old semantics it was possible for normal users to create situations that only the superuser could fix, such as creating a non-writable directory of files and then giving the ownership away. Since they no longer own the files they can’t change them, nor can they remove them. This is commonly a problem when untaring files that other people created with restrictive file permissions. The new semantics avoid this problem entirely. Therefore most systems today have been changed to disallow giving file ownership away. But as noted it has not always been that way.
Additionally systems need to restrict who can remove files from system temporary directories such as /tmp. Otherwise anyone could remove any file there which might disrupt system processes. Some programs might even have security issues associated with this. Therefore modern systems set the ’sticky’ bit on /tmp. This is the ’t’ bit. On directories this prevents users from removing or renaming a file unless they own the file or directory. The reason this is important is that if chown is allowed then /tmp is another place that a file could be created by a user, chowned, and then could not be removed by the user. A sticky /tmp and a restricted chown policy go together. If you have one then you should have the other as well.
People have used this to avoid disk space quota restrictions. Give the file to someone either with disk quota to spare or without any quota restrictions, like root. You can always copy the files back and then you own them again. This effectively defeats any quota system if allowed. Also, you can deny someone else service with a denial of service attack by using all of their quota until they cannot create any files. You use up their quota by chowning files to them someplace where they cannot find them.

Hashing it Out in PowerShell: Using Get-FileHash |
Windows 7, even with all the updates, only has PowerShell 2.0, so no 'get-filehash' for Windows 7.
PowerShell 4.0 introduced a new cmdlet, Get-FileHash, primarily for use with Desired State Configuration (DSC). In a pull server configuration, you need to provide file hashes so that servers can recognize changes. That is the primary purpose of a file hash as far as I am concerned is for file integrity. Windows supports several different hashing algorithms, which you should not confuse with encryption.

.net - What does $_ TRULY mean in PowerShell? - Stack Overflow
The $_ is only created in the context of a pipeline, that is the passing of output objects from one command into the "input" of another. For pipeline filters (which are like functions), powershell automatically populates the $_ variable with the current object of the pipeline. Now I say current because it is important to note that when multiple objects are passed down the pipeline, the process scriptblock of your filter is executed once per object.
