Just Another IM client

Wanna try something new in Instant Messenger? I found this good site. Here you will see their comment on some alternative Instant Messenger (IM). I think this is good for ones who need to online at the same time in more thant one account in same IM services like more than one account in Yahoo Messenger.

"Tired of using the big corporate instant messengers, or just looking at what else is out there? Either way, you've come to the right place. Here is a list of some other instant messengers that are out there. Some are even compatible with the big corporate instant messengers, which means you can still talk to your friends on AIM or Msn instant messenger. Check out the Interoperability chart to find out what messengers they are compatible with."

Erase many files in 1 directory in UNIX/Linux

Almost 2 months since my last posting. I have many jobs to do specially non technical made me have no time to continue spread the knowledge to others. Since today I will try to make a posting at least once a week to keep the readers update about this site.

This time I will write about "Erase many files in 1 directory in UNIX/Linux" since I got one case when the logrotate of one of my server using BSD had corrupted and I had no time to fix the logrotate package. So I made a little script and crontab-ed it like once a day in the period of minimum traffic. I use it to clean the quarantince files in qmail. Here the script

ns1# cd /var/spool/qmailscan/quarantine/new/
ns1# ls | xargs rm

This script helped me to keep the harddrive not full when there is no logrotate process running.
