I kind of feel like the hero in the cartoon at times…basically whenever someone asks me if something is possible to do in bash, I hack for a minute or two and then give them a nice script (which generally consists of some awk, which I am liking more and more, and possibly some sed).

Did I mention that I enjoy bash? Hrm. Speaking of bash, I’ll be presenting about it on Tuesday, January 30th at 7pm, for Linux Users Group @ Stony Brook. :)
