Master Your Sysadmin One-Liners
By RickRamsey-Oracle on Mar 11, 2010
For those too young to remember him, Bob Hope was America's favorite comic during the more innocent time in America's history when you couldn't include profanity in the jokes you delivered over the airwaves.
He was particularly popular with US troops stationed overseas or in remote bases.
upon being introduced to a group of amputees...
"Please don't stand up on my account."
At least he could still be politically incorrect.
Thanks to Maxime Corbeau, who sent us the link below, you can be master of your own one-liners.

One-Line Sysadmin Commands at Readylines.com
From their website:
"Welcome to readylines.com, the one-liner specialist.
You will find here plenty of one-liner commands that we hope will be useful to you. We currently have one-liners for various utilities such as openssl, grep, sed, tcpdump, ssldump and more. We'll try to add more in the future. The website has been designed to make reading one-liners easier for you."
Thanks, Maxime, for sharing the link with us.
You can also find a large repository of both Solaris and Linux sysadmin commands in BigAdmin's ShellMe Section. It includes both collections of commands and individual command sequences for topics such as:
- Disk Commands
- Driver Parameters
- Process management
- and much more...
If you have a favorite command sequence, tell us about it and we'll add it to the list.
If you'd like to read more of Bob Hope's innocent one-liners, you can find them at www.theage.com.au. I got a special kick out of this one:
"A bank is a place that will lend you money if you can prove that you don't need it."Bob Hope's one-liners won't give you the gut-busting laughs that some of today's comics will give you, but they'll take you back to another time.
