Random things I learnt today

clearfsimport can be used as non-root user when used with the misleadingly named option –nsetevent

Awk is useful for filtering specific line numbers from files.

# all but first line
awk "NR>1" foo.txt

 # everything but line 3
awk "NR!=3" foo.txt

# lines 3 to 7 inclusive
awk "NR>=3&&NR<=7" foo.txt 

In Spanish and other languages days or week and months are not capitalized.

Nothing can appear before the <?xml tag ?>, e.g. copyright headers

The SQLite license raises a smile.

The SQLite source code contains no license since it is not governed by
copyright. Instead of a license, the SQLite source code offers a blessing:

   May you do good and not evil
   May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
   May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
