Quick Q&A, stolen from an AIM conversation..
Do you know a way to duplicate a folder structure, but leave out any files inside it?
It would be based on “
find <dir> -type d“, which prints out a list of all directories.
From that you can use “
xargs“. Something like this..
cd srcdir; find . -type d \! -name . -print0 | (cd dest; xargs -0 mkdir)
The “\! -name .” is because find always returns “.”, which is the current directory. To give feedback, add a “-v” after the mkdir:
cd srcdir; find . -type d \! -name . -print0 | (cd dest; xargs -0 mkdir -v)
a blog publishing app similar to WordPress
(which I’m currently using for all my blogs)
is undergoing a website facelift, and is
being seen more often.
Typo is based on Rails
, of course.
I am hoping to take it and turn it into the blog software I’ve always wanted.
One wherein everyone posts to a single database, and “sites” are determined by filtering that pool.
Personal sites take all posts by that person, tech sites take all the “tech” postings, etc.
I think it sucks that I have to decide to either post in
or Tech Tok.
Apple just introduced a 1 GB iPod Nano, and dropped the price on the 1 GB iPod Shuffle.
In $Canadian, the Nano is $180, while the Shuffle is $120.
The Nano uses flash memory, just like the Shuffle; the only real difference is that the Shuffle has no display.
It’s like a gum stick with buttons on it.
Oh, the 512 MB Shuffle is $90, btw.
So, given cheaper Nano’s, is there any reason to really have a Shufle any more?
I would expect them to Shuffle off this mortal coil any time now.
I tried to post this as a comment on Jeff’s post, but comments aren’t allowed to use tables. *sigh.
