I had an issue with permissions. I needed a backup of this command. Here it is. Not only a backup but a share too. Make sure you share too.

Name
chown - change file owner and group
Synopsis
chown [OPTION]... [OWNER][:[GROUP]] FILE...
chown [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE...
Description
This manual page documents the GNU version of chown. chown changes the user and/or group ownership of each given file. If only an owner (a user name or numeric user ID) is given, that user is made the owner of each given file, and the files' group is not changed. If the owner is followed by a colon and a group name (or numeric group ID), with no spaces between them, the group ownership of the files is changed as well. If a colon but no group name follows the user name, that user is made the owner of the files and the group of the files is changed to that user's login group. If the colon and group are given, but the owner is omitted, only the group of the files is changed; in this case, chown performs the same function as chgrp. If only a colon is given, or if the entire operand is empty, neither the owner nor the group is changed.
Options

Change the owner and/or group of each FILE to OWNER and/or GROUP. With --reference, change the owner and group of each FILE to those of RFILE.

-c, --changes
like verbose but report only when a change is made
--dereference
affect the referent of each symbolic link (this is the default), rather than the symbolic link itself
-h, --no-dereference
affect each symbolic link instead of any referenced file (useful only on systems that can change the ownership of a symlink)
--from=CURRENT_OWNER:CURRENT_GROUP
change the owner and/or group of each file only if its current owner and/or group match those specified here. Either may be omitted, in which case a match is not required for the omitted attribute.
--no-preserve-root
do not treat '/' specially (the default)
--preserve-root
fail to operate recursively on '/'
-f, --silent, --quiet
suppress most error messages
--reference=RFILE
use RFILE's owner and group rather than specifying OWNER:GROUP values
-R, --recursive
operate on files and directories recursively
-v, --verbose
output a diagnostic for every file processed

The following options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when the -R option is also specified. If more than one is specified, only the final one takes effect.

-H
if a command line argument is a symbolic link to a directory, traverse it
-L
traverse every symbolic link to a directory encountered
-P
do not traverse any symbolic links (default)
--help
display this help and exit
--version
output version information and exit

Owner is unchanged if missing. Group is unchanged if missing, but changed to login group if implied by a ':' following a symbolic OWNER. OWNER and GROUP may be numeric as well as symbolic.
Examples

chown root /u
Change the owner of /u to "root".
chown root:staff /u
Likewise, but also change its group to "staff".
chown -hR root /u
Change the owner of /u and subfiles to "root"

Hello...it's the short dude again. This time Imma talk about faith. Not her, but the spiritual faith. I don't even have a perfect defination of what it is but wikipedia told me it is: 

Faith, the confidence or trust in something or somebody despite the absence of proof.
Bad faith, a legal concept in which a malicious motive on the part of a party in a lawsuit undermines their case
Bad faith (existentialism), mauvaise foi, a philosophical concept wherein one denies one's total freedom, instead choosing to behave as an inert object
Fáith, the Irish for "prophet, seer"
Good faith, bona fides, the mental and moral state of honesty
Religion, any specific system of belief ("one's faith")
Religious belief, the belief in the reality of the mythological, supernatural, or spiritual aspects of a religion.
The first of the theological virtues in Catholic theology
Trust (social sciences) in a person or entity
Uberrima fides (Utmost good faith), the legal doctrine of certain contractual obligations

I came home some evening and my brother was un-usually happy. Everything seemed ok. Better actually. I hadn't even changed to my gym clothes and he was telling me what the Bible says about faith and quoting a few guys here and there, like Moses, Abraham, Elijah, Elisha...you know where am going..right? I chipped in kidogo kidogo without killing the heart of the story.

FAITH. 

That day, he had a prayer request. It was common. I was to pray to pray on my end, while at work, and He while he was wherever he was..Trust me, we had no tight schedule. It was loose and working. Gave my request time. He did too so, which I learnt he did through the narration. His prayer about me had been answered. It was one of those instant answers from God. He believed. We Believed. We Prayed.  I usually remind God that the reason why I pray and never give up is because I've seen lots of wonders and stuff that even science hits a snag while trying to explain. God created science. Most of the stuff we are taught in colleges and other places are all efforts in understanding God's might. 

Reader, I lemmi say am not the pastor kind of guy. I'm not clean. I do pray though. I've seen what prayers can do. Never leave that. Always remember God in all you do. He's just awesome.

Back in the day, my granny narrated a story to me about some brave hunters. I liked the story, even though I didn’t have brains to think about any inner meaning. My mind drama was all about the hunters setting traps and getting some home.

I later saw it and decided to share.

 

Two friends set out on a hunting expedition deep in the forest. They were seasoned hunters and knew their way around the forest. They knew where to find which game and at what time of the day. They could track any animal they were keen to pursue right into its haven and slay it. No animal was too big or too cunning or ferocious for this pair. But this particular day, luck seemed to evade them. For hours on end, they crisscrossed the deep jungle tracking, chasing and chancing, all to no avail. It was getting late. They were getting weary, thirsty and hungry. But giving up was never an option to the duo. It is at this point of desperation that they decided to take an unfamiliar route leading into a section of the forest known to harbour little or no game at all. Hardly had they done 100 metres when they bumped onto a large lone male hyena. Unfortunately, it was taboo and abominable to eat hyenas in their community. One of the two hunters said to his partner: "I know it is taboo to eat hyena meat, but is it taboo to kill one?" His friend replied: "No, it is not." So the two agreed to shoot the hyena, which they did. This done, they also were in agreement that it is not taboo to skin or even roast a hyena. Once roasted, the aroma of the juicy hyena meat was too much to resist. It is here that one of them again asked his friend: "As far as I can recall, it is not abominable to taste hyena meat, or is it?" His friend quickly replied: "Of Course not! It is perfectly ok to taste!" The two hungry hunters tasted the hyena meat to their fill. What remained, they took back to the village without disclosing what animal it was. The whole village gathered to feast. They had never tasted such sweet meat like this before! The chief demanded to know which animal that was. The two hunters, left with no other option had to reveal to the chief what had happened. The chief after a brief consultation wth the elders immediately revoked the taboo on hyena meat, but announced that hyenas can only be hunted with the direct authority of the village chief.

 

It took the bravery of two hungry hunters to change an age old taboo.

It took the bravery of two desperate hunters for a whole village to discover that there is no harm whatsoever in eating hyena meat

It might take your desperate act of bravery to liberate humanity from some self imposed rules, regulations, taboos, name it.

 

Our limitations are self imposed! We continue to lack in a world of plenty.

Please Sing along and share. Wherever you see Dela, tell her am looking for her. ;)

Hello

Ni mimi

Baada ya miaka na mikaka, je twaweza kukutana

Turejelee yote.

Wanasema muda unaponya, mbona bado ninaumwa?

Hello

Waniskia?

Niko Pwani nikiota juu ya vile tulikuwa

Kama vijana, tulipokuwa huru

Nimesahau ilivyohisi kabla dunia ianguke

Tofauti baina yetu

Na maili milioni

 

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Mara elfu kakupigia

Kuomba msamaha kwa niliyotenda

Lakini mteja hapatikani

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Naweza sema nimejaribu

Mpenzi nisamehe kwa kuvunja moyo

Lakini ni kama haikujalishi

Kamwe.

 

Hello

Waambaje?

Ni kawaida yangu kujizungumzia,oh

Natumahi utaniwia radhi

Sio siri

Tunapitwa na masaa

 

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Mara elfu kakupigia

Kuomba msamaha kwa niliyotenda

Lakini mteja hapatikani

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Naweza sema nimejaribu

Mpenzi nisamehe kwa kuvunja moyo

Lakini ni kama haikujalishi

Kamwe ooh

Kamwe ooh

Kamwe ooh

Kamwe, kamwe

 

Hello ‘toka kwa mataa

Lakini ni kama haikujalishi

Kamwe.
