Marginally Cool Stuff

Welcome to my little hacks-and-fun collection, where you can download some of the cool stuff I've made. Sorry, no warez.


ZFS-Only FreeBSD Installation
A not-so-quick guide to setting up FreeBSD without the use of UFS. Hey, it's still simpler than installing Gentoo Linux!

Two programs for SunOS 5.x that make use of the /proc filesystem. killcmd is based on the concept of the killall utility available for Linux, FreeBSD, and possibly other operating systems. Its purpose is to kill/signal a process or processes by process name rather than numeric process ID. pidof is based on the concept of the pidof utility available for Linux. Its purpose is to print the numeric IDs of a process or processes given by name on the command line. Both programs include all functionality of their Linux equivalents plus added features; however, all source code is original, written by me. Yes, Solaris now has pgrep and pkill, but this is way cooler. Well, unless you need to use regular expressions, I guess.
