As the glorious tradition goes, Iâm doing another round of monthly donations supporting open source projects and charity organizations, and per a slightly less glorious tradition, Iâm doing this on the lastest day of the month.
This monthâs open source project that Iâm supporting is one small utility that is so common that I found it hard to even think of it as a project of its own, it seems like an elemental component of every operating system that Iâm using these days. And if youâre reading this on Linux or Mac OS X, itâs pretty likely that you use it all the time as well, because Iâm talking about Sudo, the program that gives you great power whenever you need it.
Sudo is mostly used to gain root privileges, but it can do much more than just that — itâs highly configurable and gives you fine-grained control over whoâs allowed to run which commands.
Iâm also supporting the Animal Shelter in Olsztyn (for the second time, since I also sent them a donation last year).
