On a serious note though: If you have precedent of admins login in to your CPanel (or other server management consoles) intoxicated/drunk, it might be wiser to look at this problem as a personnel/management issue instead of looking for a solution to a problem as trying to put a bandaid on a gaping wound. (As of right now, there is no practical way of doing ...

Foxyproxy - I cant stand getting attacked by others when they walk over with their stats and say "Hm this Serverfault.com you wasted 5 minutes of our time on it."

Excellent question. Ironically, this very functionality was exposed in the older Microsoft JVM (10 years ago). Controlling Java in Internet Explorer https://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/archive/2011/05/15/controlling-java-in-internet-explorer.aspx Recently, there’s been some interest in how to control the use of Java within Internet Explorer. Java is a ...

Even for IT, I'd have to put FireBug at the top of the list, too much good information in there.and

Tamper Data this is handy when you have to examine HTTP headers. This may be necessary if you have virtual hosts in a hosting environment. We also insert a field in the header to identify web machines in some of our web farms to identify problem hosts.

ShowIP - allows me to see quickly the IP address of the server where a particular website is hosted. Assists in managing my many clients websites. DNSCache - quickly disable/re-enable Firefox's builtin DNS Cache, particularly good if your also manipulating the site's DNS at the time ScreenGrab - particularly good at capturing that error and sending to the ...

Xmarks, cause who wants to maintain a local only copy of their Firefox bookmarks. Xmarks will sync your bookmarks across Firefox, IE etc on all your computers. It's fast and stays out of the way.

Sure...just hook up a USB breathalyzer :-).

In Eclipse, go to Help -> Install new software. The Eclipse update site URL to use with the update manager is: http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/updates/ Enter the above link and test the connection. It will update Eclipse.

How about only allowing very long and complex passwords that they can't change, something like: "l0c0b0x l1k3s 2 dr1nk c0ff33 3v3r1 d41" and deny access for 2 hours after three wrong entries. Other than that, maybe think about writing a flash app like that drunk walk game that only shows you a login prompt once the drunk guy 'reaches home'. *I wrote ...

Well, no such animal existed, so I conjured it. You'll find the latest code in the gist. Enjoy.

$ vimtutor for starters. I remember Emacs has a tutorial of some sort from back when I was choosing an editor, but I don't remember what it is. I'd say learn enough about both to be able to function, then pick one or the other and master it (as much as possible--I'm finding after 7 years of using Vim that there's always lots to learn).

LastPass. So I don't have to remember the loads of accounts I use (and can generate very strong passwords for each of your accounts), both personal and at work.

Nope, that's how Puppet does pluginsync. That generalised philosophy (of "we don't care that it came from a module") was already in place when I wrote the pluginsync code, so I just ran with it. Even if you namespace the files, you can't namespace native types, so it wouldn't do you any good to have them in separate directories. Keep your type names ...

Firebug and YSlow! FTW However I don't see why a web browser is a crucial tool for sysadmins, curl ? wget ? telnet host 80 ?

We've specifically selected login passwords that were complex enough, and stored in a system which displayed them in a font small enough, that intoxicated people could rarely maintain the visual concentration long enough to get the password correctly entered. ...uh ...not that we've had any direct experience with this. Oh, no.

Installing extentions covers the steps needed for installing extensions globally. I install Firefox with WPKG which someone's already documented how to install extensions.

Charles Proxy with Firefox plugin is much better than Firebug network statistics.

ReloadEvery - so I can get SO refresh automagically while working! AdBlockPlus - because so many sites have ads that I don't care about. Mentioned before, but super +1 for Firebug and YSlow because there's typically some good information that can be gleaned depending on what issue you might get roped in to.

Display some lines of a randomly selected text and let the admin retype it from the screen before giving him the login screen. Measure the relative timing of the key strokes and plot them one against the other in an x-y diagram, namely points {..., (t(n+1), t(n)), (t(n), t(n-1)), ...} This gives you the Poincare Map of some underlying high dimensional ...

You can set the title of your terminal with the following command: MYTITLE="Something Witty" echo -n -e "\033]0;$MYTITLE\007" Option 1 You could place that in the .bashrc file of the hosts you are connecting to, and it would set the title when you log in. Determining the security settings might be a bit more difficult. You might determine if you ...

You'll probably find the 'getting started guides' here helpful. You probably will need to download the plug-in. The easiest way to do this would be to: go to Help -> Install new software. Pick the Galileo repository All the way at the bottom there are install options for 'Web, XML, and JaveEE Development ... also this is better suited for SO

Did you restart munin-node after putting the memcached plugins in the plugin directory? Are any of them listed if you run 'list' when connected with telnet? Any of the memcached plugins I've seen need the port and ip included in the name of the plugin, like the if_ scripts, where there's just symlinks into /etc/munin/plugins like: # ls ...
