Warning: Upstart scripts run as root. Have a look at upstart.ubuntu.com/cookbook/#setuid on changing that.

comment access to column in python like awk
Python is dynamically typed, a name is not bound to a type. By the way, the return value is a tuple, not a list ("array"). If your input always have three fields for example, then you could use this: field1, field2, field3 = line.strip().split() and access field1, etc. directly.

@mekkanizer It must be a feature of newer NM versions then. Try nmcli nm wifi off (and nmcli nm wifi on) instead.

comment How can I fetch random words from an electronic dictionary database or text file?
@rusty No problem, sort is not the most efficient program for this purpose either, it creates temporary files for large files. A better program (in terms of memory) would first scan for the number of lines, then pick some random numbers and then scan again for those lines.

comment how to install packages with apt-get on a system connected via proxy?
@Behrang Both are treated by APT as the same thing, but having a separate config file for its purpose makes it easier to disable/enable it.
