First Apache email

It seems that first Apache.org email message was a very thorough bug report for a bug that, alas, not only was already well documented, but which had already been fixed. The report was against Apache 1.3b3, which I mistakenly called 3.3b3. I guess, since 1.3 hadn’t released yet, that we must have been running 1.2 at the time at DataBeam.

That was in January of 1998, though, and I am pretty sure that I had already been running Apache for at least 2 years by then, and NCSA before that. It seems strange that I never sent a message to a mailing list before then.

shell history meme

Here’s my contribution to the shell history meme that I’ve seen floating about. This is just so that I keep my creds as a geek blog. 😉

From my laptop:

% history -n 500 | awk ‘{a[$1]++ } END{for(i in a){print a[i] ” ” i}}’|sort -rn|head
121 cd
44 ssh
35 vi
33 svn
33 sudo
24 ls
22 scp
14 mv
13 dig
12 perl

On the server I’ve got this:

[rbowen@buglet ~]$ history | awk ‘{print $2}’ | sort | uniq -c | sort -rn | head
185 cd
174 ls
106 vi
106 sudo
50 tail
31 ps
27 /sbin/iptables
23 grep
19 locate
15 yum

Which strikes me as *really* weird. There must have been some window in there that I was tinkering with iptables an awful lot.
