Ramblings Of a Madman

Yeah, like i would know a good description…

Kill process by fuzzy name

Sometimes you want to kill a process but you either don’t know the exact name of the executable file, or you know part of the command arguments. killall is not your friend in those situations. Here’s a quick script to grep on part of a process name or arguments and kill it.


Full script (put it in a path included folder and change it’s permissions to executable +x):

#!/bin/bash
ps aux | grep $1 | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}' | xargs kill -9

Another awesome video

Take a peak inside the most awesome BASE jumping boogie ever created. The 3rd annual AZ BASE Boogie, hosted by Matt Frohlich of anitgravityBASE and also Apex BASE. Witness a sample of what a huge group of awesome jumpers can get themselves into over a big party weekend in the winter desert. Thanks to Matt and all the local jumpers, all the participants and the guys who contributed footage for this video. Absolute success!!!
