10 Ruby One Liners to Impress Your Friends – Someone came up with a list of 10 one-liner examples that are meant to showcase Scala’s expressiveness. A CoffeeScript version quickly emerged, so I thought I’d publish a Ruby one. I find Ruby’s syntax to be a bit cleaner than Scala’s, but the substance (at least as far as these examples are concerned) is relatively similar.
Ruby development for system administrators | Linux User – Most Linux and UNIX system administrators use a diverse mix of shell scripts and tools like grep, awk, cut and so on. The classical approach has proven its merits, but these scripts are generally not easy to read or to maintain. One solution is to use a real programming language for system administration tasks. In a complex environment, system administration can become much easier with a real programming language instead of shell scripts. Traditionally, Perl has been very popular among sysadmins, but some people maintain that this is not much better than shell.
In this article, we choose Ruby, a feature-rich but simple object-oriented programming language known from the popular web application framework Ruby on Rails. T

You can learn this too, whether you've dabbled with Perl for a decade or someone just handed you this book and said "Fix this code by Friday."
Useful commands for Windows administrators – Managing a Windows 2000 Active Directory with about 100 servers, over 1500 computers and 35 sites, the following commands often helped me answer questions or solve problems.
Most commands are "one-liners", but for some I had to make an exception and go to the right directory first.
These commands could all be used in batch files, though some may need some "parsing" with FOR /F to retrieve only the required substrings from the displayed information.
Time Synchronization with NTP – NTP (Network Time Protocol) provides accurate and syncronised time across the Internet. This introductory article will try to show you how to use NTP to control and synchronize your system clock.

HOWTO: Install AIX – To my surprise many AIX administrators have never had the opportunity to actually install AIX from scratch. This article is for admins new to AIX and anyone else interested in what the steps are to install AIX. The screenshots are from install AIX 7.1 onto a partition using the ASCII interface.
Use socat as tcp forwarder on Windows and restrict a few hosts to connect to it – Objective: on the company LAN, only one Windows server is able to connect to smtp server, some other servers need to connect to smtp server as well<br />
Environment: Windows 2000 server A with one NIC, another Windows 2000 server B will be connecting to A at port 25 to reach company smtp server smtp.domain.com.
