What does “Is this ok [y/d/N]:” mean?

When installing new software using yum, you will occasionally get the the option of “Is this ok [y/d/N]:”  Everyone knows recognizes Yes and No, but the option d may have thrown you for a loop.

“d” simply stands for download only.  If you were to do this from the commandline you’d use this:

Advanced Google Search Operators

Sometimes a simple Google search won’t do. Today I needed to find some malformed URLs in a site.   I couldn’t remember how to search for specific text in a URL.

I had a hard time finding the Google documentation of search commands this morning.  It I needed the allinurl: function.

I don’t want to have to search that hard again so here is the documentation in my Code Cave:

Keeping it mellow this morning, listening to songs a Canadian sang some 42 years ago about walking in the woods and being back home after a crazy few weeks. It works for me after getting most of my projects for the last few weeks in hand again..

Listening to the new Sun and Shield Album by Peter Furler. Steve Taylor says “Shame” and “It’s alright” are the tracks to listen for!

How to Fix: After upgrading WHMCS: Down for Maintenance An upgrade is currently in progress

I recently came across an issue I’d not seen before. After performing what I thought was a proper upgrade, I found that my support and sales portal was displaying the error:
