Got this up and running in an EC2 instance this weekend. Now it's time to pull it apart, figure out how it's working, and get PHP working with it so we can use it. I think this would be particularly awesome for on demand Dev/QA instances. The main hurdle is going to be figuring out how to manage the databases since they vary depending on region.

Yay! Bootstrap nagios server with some fake hosts doing default checks. Just realizing how amazing chef is and taking the time to (start) learning it is one of the most gratifying things I've done in a while.

Inspired by my general geekyness and hackernews 'weekend project' I decided to get chef-server up and running under centos (yes, I know). Now to work on building recipes for a LAMP stack to get up to speed on chef.

So one night drunkenly working on some mail condigs I created a user test/test on a dev box (of mine) and forgot I did it. 4 days later linode could usage warnings. Box has thousands of tcp connections to a php script.

It's always awesome when you find a chance to automate something and document it in the same sweep.

You know how you sometimes listen a band or a song a bunch of times and never really hear it? This song is pretty obvious, but I didn't realize the whole theme of this album until tonight.

Great song. Love this band to pieces.
