Introduction
Hello! My name is Stephen Wood. I'm a computer nerd by trade working at Moz doing all sorts of nerdy and fun things. 

I live in Seattle, Washington where it does indeed rain a lot (but hey, at least all that time we spend indoors playing our guitars produces some pretty good musicians).

Move over upstart and make way for systemd
Earlier this week the Debian technical committee voted to make systemd the default init system for Debian. It was a nail-biter to follow, and it essentially came down to a tie-breaker vote cast by Bdale Garbee. The result is clear: systemd will be the defau...

Using Saltstack to manage linux users
Saltstack makes it very easy to manage users. You can use pillars to predefine all of the users and add them later, or you can define them within a single sls state file. By example here is an sls file that will add or remove any number of users to a system...
