    Anybody know what a "special" file is?
    I would guess it means something that is not just a bunch of blocks of data in the filesystem, so a device node, a socket or a fifo.

    The weird this is it's a .max file. Thanks for the tip!

    Any #PHP experts out there know if there's a way to get rid of multipart messages in these:

    use Zend\Mail\Message;
    use Zend\Mime\Message as MimeMessage;
    use Zend\Mime\Part as MimePart;

    I've got a customer issue the developers don't want to fix, so I'm taking a crack at it.

    Full BSD 2-clause code at ftp://ftp.perforce.com/perforce/r18.2/bin.multiarch/swarm.tgz if you want context.

    This is the Module.php file I'm looking at. I see where the message is built on line 403 but I can't figure out how to fix it.

    Ultimately, the issue is in the fromName on line 415 (or possibly 417, but I think 415), but I can't figure out how that fromName is built.

    For occasions like this, sed -n can come in handy. With sed -n, sed doesn't print anything on output by default, so you can make a command that prints certain lines, like a sort of overpowered grep:

    $ printf '12:23:00 foo\n13:45:23 bar\n15:43:12 baz\n' |
      sed -ne '/^13:/,$p'
    13:45:23 bar
    15:43:12 baz

    /^13:/,$ means "for the lines starting with the line that starts with 13: and ending with the end of the file", and p means "print".

    In other words, print the part of the file that starts with the line that matches the regex. In the example, "foo" came before the "13:" line, so it wasn't printed.

    Apologies for the potential weird formatting. I copied this from facebook and lost my paragraphs. I put some of them back in though.

    I feel like there may be some of you lurking out there that may be some sort of endurance athlete.

    I'm in a bit of a quandary. My plan had been to do the 100k step challenge (~45 miles) Oct 20. I was planning to do the last big training run/hike next weekend, Oct 6. There's a 10k that day that I am running. 

    Unfortunately, I have some mild knee pain. It's not bad enough to make me not run the 10k, but I have my doubts about success on Oct 20 without another long hike. We're talking 6.2 vs 15.7 miles. If I don't do the 100k step challenge, then I can just bike to the 10k.

    I could just take some time off and see how I feel closer to the time, but I was hoping to cut some weight before Oct 20.The 100k step challenge takes to long to fail a second time. How many steps is the temperature worth? I got to 68k when it was 84F. I could have done more, but how much more I don't know.I've swam twice this week and as of right now plan on swimming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. My week trial at Lifetime is up then. Maybe I'll bail on swimming if I don't do the 100k? It takes a while to get down to the gym, shower before getting in the pool, deal with the locker, etc. We have a gym upstairs. I have a bike, and we have tons of trails (although to get the same workout swimming may be more efficient even with the extra time).

    I made what turned out to be a poor decision about swimming timing. I can correct that on Thursday, so maybe wait until Thursday at least to make a decision?I can always push the 100k challenge back into the spring or just move it back to Oct 27 and do the training hike on Oct 13. I want to keep some weather days in there and at some point it'll be too cold to make it worthwhile. I'm not sure when that date is.

    Anyway, I have a ton to do, so I guess I should get to it...
