Faithful – Erik Nieder

Lord you search me, how you know me
You perceive my every thought from afar
In all my wandering, still you love me
King of glory you pursue my anxious heart

Even when I’m not, you’re faithful
Even when I doubt your truth holds
Even when I’m lost you won’t let me go
When my heart is dry your grace flows
No matter where I run, I’m not far from home
Yea, I may be weak but you’re able
Even when I’m not, you’re faithful
Even when I’m not, you’re faithful

Lord you search me, how you know me
You perceive my every thought from afar
In all my wandering, still you love me
King of glory you pursue my anxious heart

You can do anything! – Maggie Doyne

Life is short so make every day count. Stories like these inspire me and I hope they inspire you too, to do something worthwhile. I’ve been blessed with many things in life but I have not found greater joy and satisfaction in anything as much as I do in giving. Giving with right motives brings in fruit. Hats off to people like Maggie who I think have the best job and life in the world. I envy what they’ve accomplished in their life so far. This is what is a success should mean for everyone.

“The great use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it.” —William James
“That is your legacy on this Earth when you leave this Earth: how many hearts you touched.” —Patti Davis

Run Tasks/Jobs in the Background while closing the SSH Session

We usually run imports and exports for our email marketing software using PHP-CLI (Command-line Interface). The problem comes when we want to work on something else. Instead of opening multiple terminal sessions, we use this little application called Screen. This little application is quite handy when it comes to keeping those sessions alive by running tasks/jobs in the background. Screen is a console application that allows you to have multiple terminal sessions within a single window.

If you don’t have it installed, you can install it by using the following command:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install screen

To use:

screen -dmSL [session name] [commands]

d – starts a session and immediately detaches from it
m – forces the creation of a new session
S – lets you give the session a friendly name
L – turns on logging to ~/screenlog.0

To detach and keep the processes running:

Ctrl + A + D

To resume the session:

Screen -x "session-name"
