An emulation of a typical Linux OS login prompt with some bash scripts.

I was curious about the way a simple command like "passwd" and "adduser" worked on a Linux system. It basically saves the password in a /etc/shadow file and encrypts it using secure hashing algorithms with salting involved. Now what if we try to do the same(not the same, but something similar) with a shell script?… Continue reading An emulation of a typical Linux OS login prompt with some bash scripts.

Each pause in breathing, called an apnea, can last from at least ten seconds to minutes, and may occur 5 to 30 times or more an hour, causing partial airway obstruction.

As sleep deepens, your airway becomes blocked.

Often you don’t remember waking up — although I’m sure your partner remembers — but this cycle is repeated all night long and there’s really no high quality sleep.
