I'm a computer engineer, experienced with C, C++ (especially C++11), Python, Bash, z80 and PIC24 assembly, LaTeX, Java (mostly with Android), and a handful of others. I run Arch Linux and CyanogenMod, avoiding Windows whenever possible.

You can find some of my work on GitHub.

comment ShellShock - bash already updated?
"Bash doesn't just 'terminate' when you close your terminal - its still active in background..." This is not true. What happens is that there are other processes still using instances of the old version of Bash. When you close/reopen your terminal, you're launching a fresh copy of (the now patched) Bash. There is not some single master copy of Bash running somewhere. However, you are correct that a system restart will purge all the old Bash instances.

comment How do I uncompress a tarball that uses .xz?
I feel like you could just do unxz < file.tar.xz | tar x or similar.
