I set up a last minute booth for the Linux Club (I'm the new club president) at my school made from a cardboard box. We started with 36 people in the club and ended the day with over 100! Right now we're using groupme for our communication, and it's not ideal for so many people. I'm thinking of trying , or . Which one should I choose? Any other suggestions?

Day 24: I put together a fun list of terminal tricks:

Also since school is started I've been slacking on this challenge...

Day 23: I wrote a script to show info about a system and I set it to run in my .bashrc when I log into my school's servers for a class.

git log --pretty=format:%cd --date=short | uniq -c # Print a count of the commits per day in a git repo.

Day 22: I adapted the script to accomodate 16.04 and also work with a single disk, then I could install it on another computer (along with remote desktop) for a school research team (

Famous moments in shutdown history: When I forgot to use -r when logged in remotely on an isolated system 13,370 km away.

Very interesting emerging life like system simulation out of a pretty simple equation.

Sometimes low-tech is a cooler solution than high-tech.

This sensor device detects if your package was handled roughly during transport: no electronics, just clever engineering.

Day 19: I started writing the install script for kubeadm on the cluster. Also, today I attended my brother's robotics competition, and they did very well.
