I just finished a dot file manager (dotm) that simplifies handling config files on multiple servers & computers. https://github.com/brettbatie/dotfiles

I need to find 1 file that contains specific text that is inside of a zip file. There are 30,000 zip files that might contain this file with specific text. I'm so glad zipgrep + find exists. :-)

Someone is trying to brute force login to my blog admin page. My logs show over 700 (and growing) unique IP addresses hitting my login page over the last 10 hours. Coming out to about 400 attempts an hour. LoL, At that rate I will be dead by the time it breaks my password! Maybe I should add a delay to the login page to tie up more of the abusers resources.

I just fired up 300 c1.xlarge EC2 instances for a total of 2400 virtual cpu's and 2 TB of ram. No need to wait months to convert/manipulate a billion multi-page TIF's it will be done today. I love this stuff! :-)

Working on transferring 50TB of files (over 1 billion files) to Amazon S3. This will need to be a multi-threaded or multi-process application to optimize throughput since S3 caps a single transfer at roughly 25mb/s. There is no cap on the number of connections that can get 25mb/s though. This project will be fun!

Just updated my wordpress blog from a very old version to the latest. I also set it up with a Thesis to make future updates easier. Last, I added some new plugins and removed some old ones. My blog feels cleaner! Now to write something. It's funny how writing code is more fun for me than writing articles.
