Met with the Electromagnetics Teaching Assistant in the early afternoon to work on a few problems. Adam and I had a late lunch at Little Dino’s. Finished Problem Set 2 for Electromagnetics. The
var partitition filled up on
chronos, leading to some rather unusual system stability issues on Linux.
I learned that Linux a executable can be run even if its
noexec bit is set by directly calling
/lib/ld-linux.so.2. I also found a useful page describing common mySQL gotchas – features which work as advertised, but not as expected. Some of these are a little scary, actually.
