Recently I’ve noticed that google searches show an avatar next to blog posts, I’ve just figured how it links to your google profile -> http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1408986
Some interesting links (from my todo list)
Different! It’s more of a cloud nagios service than cloud-server monitor, not what I was expecting at all.. still looks good tho.
I missed this when I switched to chrome, the beta is working just fine.
What do I “do” all day?
I’m looking for an ad-hoc (easy) way to share files with my remote server…
I want to call the uploader in a shell environment I created one script for that (maybe with less effort than using ruby or other language) for that, it only needs Curl installed on system and standard Unix commands like grep, tr and sed.
Random Command Line Inspiration:
Posted here so I can find it again, and yep worked on my SDcard!
This Recovery example guides you through PhotoRec step by step to recover deleted files or lost data from a reformatted partition or corrupted file system.
Apparently I need learn a 4th firewall vendor – Junipers SRX JunOS
If you’re new to the world of Juniper (like me) then I can’t recommend the Day One guides enough, I’m finding them to be an excellent balance of information and example.
Maybe I will look at their accreditation after all
I must investigate this more….
the best damn presentation software a developer could ever love
The readme looks awesome!
I’ve just used this little gem to recover files off a memory card… awesome!
PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost files including video, documents and archives from hard disks, CD-ROMs, and lost pictures (thus the Photo Recovery name) from digital camera memory. PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media’s file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.
PhotoRec is free – this open source multi-platform application is distributed under GNU General Public License.
I’ve found a couple of good links recently for automating tasks….
- isup.me: Great little site for checking if a web server is up or not… you can even create bookmarks like www.isup.me/http://news.bbc.co.uk which will take you straight to the result.
- icanhazip.com: This site simply responds with a plain text answer of your IP address, nice for checking if NAT and proxies are working like they should.
People receiving scam emails are urged to forward them on to firstname.lastname@example.org.
…a short walk-through of how to set up a filesystem, which replicates across two web nodes, and allows concurrent access from both nodes. This scenario is particularly useful, when you intend to load-balance or automatically fail-over two web nodes…
…OCFS2 works very similar to GFS2, except that it doesn’t use RedHat’s Cluster Manager, but instead ships with O2CB, Oracle’s own cluster manager. As far as the filesystem is concerned, it does the same thing.
I’ve been playing with both solutions in VirtualBox with a plan to roll out to ec2 and solve my cpu issues.
OCFS2 looks like it will work, I’ll be testing on a micro-instance later but doesn’t support SELINUX so I’ll need to review my security config.
More posts no doubt as testing continues!
Services like tinyURL & Bitly are great but I could write my own version
Here the XML with PHP solution: XML->Array and Array->XML.
Gimp Community Reference Site.
If you're one among the millions of users of WordPress, and you really don't have that much knowledge about what's going on under the hood, your best bet to securing your website is to use plug-ins.
Quite a few CSS frameworks have been around for a while, but most web developers avoid using them. Instead most veteran developers prefer to create their own CSS framework, which provide benefits of a personalized solution and minimizes negative aspects of depending on a third party solution.
