/Boot out of space

Poolbeg Control Room Panoramic - AKA - Homers Desk...

There comes a time after a linux box has been running a while and it has acquired many updated versions of kernels installed on it the Boot drive will eventually run out of space. At that point the only thing that is left to do is remove some of the old kernels and clean up the drive. This can easily be done with the command
sudo apt-get purge $(dpkg -l linux-{image,headers}-"[0-9]*" | awk '/ii/{print $2}' | grep -ve "$(uname -r | sed -r 's/-[a-z]+//')")

to remove all but the current kernel. This worked wonders for my NAS that is currently running Ubuntu 13.04 raring.

How to save a dishwasher from rust

The other day I noticed a nick in our dishwasher rack when I was taking out our ninja blender. This is a major problem as over time that little hole in the protective coating will eventually lead to rust.  Thankfully Home Depot came to the rescue with Rerack, a paint that will prevent the rot that plagues aging dishwashers.

After following the directions and cleaning the rack with rubbing alcohol, I applied several coats of the foul smelling paint.

Will this be enough to save my dishwasher from a untimely death? Only time will tell…
