I'm at #csvconf in Portland, OR, and just saw a good talk about basic bash commands that you can use to clean up data sets, ideally line-based, well formatted data like CSVs or log files. I didn't know about the `cut` and `tr` commands!

$ echo "MyCity,MyState,IWant:TheThingAfterTheColon,MyCountry" | cut -d',' -f3 | cut -d':' -f2

--> TheThingAfterTheColon

Here's the full talk with all the example bash commands.

Setting a reminder to remind all my #Firefox-using friends to turn extension signature checking back _on_ in a few days.

It’s not a great thing to leave turned off. Malicious extensions are already rampant and I bet we see an uptick after this. πŸ˜‘

If you’re a trusted voice for your friends I suggest you do the same.

It’s Friday, and Dill’s birthday, so you get extra Dill.
