Thank you for visiting.
My name is Daniel Howard. I grew up in Chicago, and I live in
San Francisco Brooklyn
Mountain View Sunnyvale, CA. I was born in 1976:
the year of the American Bicentennial. I have a Bachelor's degree in
English Rhetoric, but I make my living as a Systems Administrator.
I enjoy writing, and I started publishing on the web in 1995, and
an online journal in 1996. I will introduce you further on the Welcome page, or you can start exploring on
your own . . .

De-duplicating Files with jdupes!
There are filesystems that support de-duplication, but I recalled the fdupes command, a tool that “finds duplicate files” … if it can find duplicate files, could it perhaps hard-link the duplicates? The short answer is no.
But there is a fork of fdupes called jdupes, which supports de-duplication! I had to try it out.
One day a pipe burst and one of the classrooms was flooding. So they worked around it but to me it felt apocalyptic and I cried accordingly.
A Dutch Intersection … in Sunnyvale?
I thought I would catch up on a little reading. I skimmed this article about an intersection in the Netherlands where a distributor road with bicycle lanes intersects smaller roads.
