network interface failover

December 24, 2013 12:17 a.m.

Ever run into a situation where a server has multiple nics that need failover if one fails or load balancing without switch or router level redundency? Or you have one nic with multiple ports distributed between two switches and the same needs? Linux network interface bonding can be your saviour!

nagios and network monitoring

November 3, 2013 1:03 a.m.

Ok, every smart sysadmin should monitor their network. This way the clients and staff do not have to inform you if something is down before you know yourself. Common sense, right? Hopefully so! I make sure that when things go down I am in the know. If I'm not, then I am not doing my job effectively. Just to state... I always know!

living in a mixed world

November 1, 2013 11:25 p.m.

Starting with a new company back in 2001 threw me into a slight Windows and heavy Linux environment. We had an Exchange server for internal email and a client still running NT4. Although, production servers were linux. And I use that term loosely since most of them were on Cobalt servers. Back then, Cobalt did not mean linux/redhat truly, but a form of a redhat based OS was there. The directory structure of where things lived were not necessarily in the standard places. Although, it was still linux and fairly easy to adapt.

pentadactyl

Do you spend so much time in Vi/Vim that you wish all or most programs had the same functionality and hot keys? Would you also like the ability to rarely or ever take your hands off the keyboard to navigate your web browser? Well, then Pentadactyl is the goods for Firefox.

February 26, 2010 5:35 p.m.

Now that the initial data migration has been completed, we can proceed with testing and the final push of data. The following parts are not that complicated and will actually use a lot of the same steps that have already been explained.

seamless data migration part 1

May 19, 2009 11:12 p.m.

Moving web sites, databases or any other type of dynamic data from one server to another is very tough to do seamlessly. Now, I don't claim to know it all, but I've been able to successfully pull it off hundreds of times over the years. With a slight few exceptions of course.

seo findings

April 29, 2009 12:08 a.m.

I learned something recently about SEO that I didn't realize in the past. Yes, I know some of the SEO guys out there will go, "DUH!" Although, until I actually saw it in action, I truly didn't realize the impact.

geeks have humor too!

April 26, 2009 1:24 a.m.

Sometimes I add humor to my code just for kicks, but I really like it when I run into comical code while looking through other people's stuff. Maybe it's an easter egg or just a funny comment. Either way, I enjoy it as much as any other geek should! Here is a code snippet that was once part of the Linux Kernel.

finally got a blog application off the ground

March 27, 2009 4:44 p.m.

Writing a blogging application in django was not what I expected. The biggest problem that I have with any programming is getting started. Kind of like a writer with "Writers Block" that sits and stares at a blank piece of paper.

take on linux

March 15, 2009 3:33 p.m.

Although I've been using Linux since 1996, I'm not really a zealot of the OS. I just prefer to use it for most of my day to day work and trust it as a secure operating system!
