I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment Is the Book of Mormon on topic?
You are free to hold that view, but LDS doesn't have a corner on the market when it comes to that term and that does not define the scope of [christianity.se] (the SE site). Questions must be specifically scoped to the theological tradition you are interested in.

comment Is the Book of Mormon on topic?
Questions specifically about how the LDS church interprets the BoM are on topic on [christianity.se]. More open discussion involving hermeneutics allowing other views about the text does not have a home on any SE site yet. You are welcome to propose one, but off the top of my head I doubt you're going to find either interest or expertise outside of the strictly framed LDS view that would drive the site. We have a hard enough time finding expertise for this site with a much broader field to draw from.

Besides the duplicate question about the Book of Mormon, see also What texts are open for examination? as well as this answer in regards to the Qu'ran which is virtually the same issue and off-topic for the same reason.

comment Why are 4 of my badges gone & Why are points not being logged?
@Daisy My advice is don't waste your time taking screen shots as the SE reputation calculations are known to work for hundreds of thousands of users every day across the network of over a hundred sites. All you need to do is read up on how its supposed to work so you know what to expect. Each of your profiles has a detailed day by day history of all changes to your reputation number.

comment Chrome extension for opening files directly?
Yes it does. The issues there are a little different and vary by OS and enabled security features, but in very broad strokes this applies across the board.

comment Chrome extension for opening files directly?
Most browsers used to prompt users for exactly this: <Save> or <Open> on download. The reason Chrome (and indeed all the major browsers) got away from this is it creates security issues that are not easily mitigated. Saving somewhere to disk and letting the host operating system take over management (and potential opening/running) of the file is the only way to safely handle this (and even then it's dangerous). You probably shouldn't do this, and even if you do knowing the risks, such a thing probably shouldn't be in a distributed extension.

What VM host software are you going for?

comment Software to take clone images of a server to VM with one click
-1 because of factually incorrect statement about this not being possible. This OP specifically noted they were using CentOS. Linux in general does not have either the driver or activation issues that Windows does and in many cases can actually be migrated across disparate hardware quite easily. The only trick here is getting the drive parameters setup such that converting the physical disk to a virtual disk image produces something a VM knows how to boot.

comment How do I make less STOP chopping long lines by default?
echo $LESS: -F -X -g -i -M -R -S -w -z-4. Mercy where did all those flags come from‽ Thanks I think I can track it down from there to find what messed with my env. I just couldn't find what channel it was reading from. I had looked at $PAGER early on when I thought it was just git giving me trougle but gave it up after trying =less directly.
