Motivation : Be Great, Be Powerful Beyond Measure

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure, beyond measure.

Ima show you, how great I am.

Last night I cut the light off in my bedroom, hit the switch, and was in the bed before the room was dark.

Ima show you, how great I am.

Only last week, I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick, Im so mean I make medicine sick.

Ima show you, how great I am.

This kids gonna be the best kid in the world.
This kids gonna be somebody better than anybody I ever knew.

Ima show you, how great I am.

I have wrastled with an alligator, I done tussled with a whale, I done handcuffed lightnin, thrown thunder in jail.

Ima show you, how great I am.

All you chumps are gonna bow when I whoop him, all of you, I know you got him, I know you've got him picked, but the man's in trouble, Ima show you how great I am.

But somewhere along the line you changed, you stopped being you.
You let people stick a finger in your face and tell you youre no good, and when things got hard, you started looking for something to blame, like a big shadow.
Let me tell you something you already know, the world ain't all sunshine and rainbows, it's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.

You, me, or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life; but it ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done !

Cause if you're willin to go through all the battling you gotta go through to get to where you wanna get, whos got the right to stop you.
I mean maybe some of you guys got something you never finished, something you really want to do, something you never said to somebody, something.
And you're told no even after you pay your dues, whos got the right to tell you that, who? Nobody!
It's your right to listen to your gut, it ain't nobody's right to say no, after you earn the right to be where you want to be and do what you want to do.

Now if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth.
But you've gotta be willing to take the hits.
And not pointing fingers saying you aint where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody.
Cowards do that and that ain't you!
You're better than that!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

All you chumps are gonna bow when I whoop him, all of you, I know you got him, I know you've got him picked, but the man's in trouble, Ima show you how great I am.

Serveur dédié : remplacer gzip par pigz pour profiter de la compression multi-core

Tous les matins, une sauvegarde des sites hébergés sur le serveur est effectuée. A ce moment là, gzip tourne à plein régime et utilise pendant un certain temps le CPU - la montée en charge atteint 50%, ce qui devient limite pour la réactivité des sites Et pour cause : gzip ne fonctionne qu'en mono-core.

Il nous faut donc optimiser tout cela ! Mark Adler, l'auteur de gzip, a écrit pigz (qui se prononce pig-zee, à l'américaine) pour compresser fichiers et répertoires en utilisant tous les coeurs du processeur simultanément.

Pigz représente donc un gain de temps mais allège également la charge du processeur, sollicité moins longtemps.

Installation de pigz

Pigz est disponible sur la plupart des distributions linux, on peut donc l'installer avec un simple :

apt install pigz

L'autre avantage, c'est que si on lit le manuel, on se rend compte que les options et paramètres sont les mêmes que ceux de gzip, ce qui en fait un drop-in replacement de choix.

Remplacer gzip par pigz sur le serveur

L'occasion d'optimiser la compression des sauvegardes est trop belle : et si nous remplacions tout simplement gzip par pigz, sur l'intégralité du serveur et sans toucher à aucun de nos scripts ?

Allez, c'est parti ! On édite donc le fichier .bashrc :

nano .bashrc

et on y ajoute les deux fonctions suivantes :

###
# Matt Biscay
# https://www.skyminds.net/?p=29838
# Use pigz instead of gzip
###
function gzip(){
 pigz $@
}
export -f gzip

function gunzip(){
 unpigz $@
}
export -f gunzip

Cela nous permet de remplacer les fonctions gzip et gunzip par pigz et unpigz, respectivement.

Sauvegardez le fichier et rechargez-le pour activer les changements :

source .bashrc

Et voilà : pigz remplace désormais gzip pour toutes les opérations de compression du serveur. A nous la compression multi-core :)

Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová - Falling Slowly

Je vous ai déjà parlé du film Once - que je recommande toujours chaudement - donc voici un autre extrait musical avec la chanson "Falling Slowly", interprétée par Markéta Irglová et Glen Hansard :

C'est un plaisir d'écouter le duo des voix et l'alliance guitare acoustique / piano.

Pour la petite histoire, Markéta Irglová retrouve souvent Glen Hansard lors de ses concerts pour interpréter la chanson en duo.

"Falling Slowly" a reçu plusieurs prix après la sortie du film : Academy Award for Best Original Song et Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Song.

Paroles

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll make it now
Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back

Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll make it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along
