I'm a long-time C & Unix hacker who believes strongly in interoperability and likes to take pictures. If something is broken, I'll try to fix it.

comment Why does my long-running nohup process quietly stop processing on Mac OSX?
What else is going on with the system? And the "ps auxwwww" output for the rake task? Does it show the process as currently running, but perhaps niced down?

comment What do I need to mount devices with threaded round holes in a server rack with square holes?
@Tonny - I've had the plain steel ones break on me in fairly short order, which is what led me to using my SAK when I had to deal with square-hole racks. I don't think that I've seen either an aluminum or a memory metal one. The latter would likely work well.

The cage nut pullers I've encountered have always been made out of cheap metal and were very prone to breakage. The large flat screwdriver blade on any (Victorinox) Swiss Army Knife is a very handy tool for installing and removing cage nuts.

comment 2 NIC's are not loading by the Ubuntu Server
You need to look at the full lspci to find the unrecognized cards. lspci -v will let you discern the differences between the PCI-Express x4 that works and the two that don't work.

comment My server is swapping, how can I fix it?
The other incredibly useful thing that atop shows you is process exits. A process that's constantly starting and dying won't reliably show up on a top listing, and if it's the only thing doing that, you won't notice the PID numbers climbing quickly, either. With atop, you'll see lots of process exits in the bottom pane, indicating the problem.
