Code and files

As more of a system administrator type I don’t generate as much code as a software engineer, and what I do generate isn’t usually suitable for public use.

That being said, on the off-hand chance someone might find any of this useful, a selection of code and configuration files has been posted below.

My .bashrc, I’ve only tested it on Debian-based systems but most of it should be fine on others. Looks like this.
Small file right now, but some bash aliases I use.
Small file right now, but some bash functions I use.
The filetype colour highlighting I use.
My .profile file.
My config file for the GNU Screen terminal multiplexer.
My .vimrc file, not really much more to say.
Contains my terminal colour scheme and rxvt-unicode/urxvt settings. Looks like this.
When I was at university, I had a rather messed up sleeping pattern. This script uses beep and should be called via cron to create a loud and configurable alarm, obviously the volume depends on your speakers and setup, for me it was obscenely loud. I used to listen to podcasts or audiobooks when trying to sleep so using the speaker instead of the sound card seemed the obvious choice.
This script can backup selected directories, databases and installed packages then send an e-mail summary.
This is quite a bespoke script, not sure if it’ll be of use to anyone. I used it in combination with the Linux find utility, to manipulate the data in a directory of text files and then import it into a CSV file. It requires the Config::Directory and Text::CSV_XS Perl modules.
Simple firewall script using IPTables, remember to change or add to the port values before using.
When working on Windows systems, I find the black popup windows that batch files create to look unprofessional for this reason I prefer VBScript. This script is for use in an Active Directory domain and will map printers and network drives based on group membership.
A shell script that uses uni2ascii to remove diacritics, ‘magic’ punctuation etc from a directory of text files, turning them into ASCII, it’s a bit simple for a shell script but I was dealing with 500,000 text files at the time.
