Every once in a while my Macbook Pro freaks out and a process goes rogue. This oftentimes happens when I’m working on the excellent debugger.html project; I attempt to start the server side of the debugger and suddenly I’m hit with an error that resembles the following, leading to the process not starting from that time forward:
Error: listen EADDRINUSE 0.0.0.0:9000 at Object._errnoException (util.js:1026:11) at _exceptionWithHostPort (util.js:1049:20) at Server.setupListenHandle [as _listen2] (net.js:1343:14) at listenInCluster (net.js:1391:12) at doListen (net.js:1500:7) at _combinedTickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:141:11) at process._tickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:180:9) at Function.Module.runMain (module.js:667:11) at startup (bootstrap_node.js:201:16) at bootstrap_node.js:626:3
The best way to fix this issue is by killing the Node.js process that’s running for the rogue task. Start by finding a listing of all of the node processes:
ps aux | grep node
You’ll see a listing similar to this:

When you identify the rogue process, use the
kill command along with the process number to remove it:
#kill -9 kill -9 12413
With the process killed you can now start up the server as normal!

One thing I love doing is duplicating OS functionalities. One of the things your OS allows you to do easily is move from one item to another. Most of the time you’re simply trying to get to the next or the previous item.
It’s no secret that Facebook has become a major traffic driver for all types of websites. Nowadays even large corporations steer consumers toward their Facebook pages instead of the corporate websites directly. And of course there are Facebook “Like” and “Recommend” widgets on every website. One…
