TecBrat, the frankencoder:

Very little organized training (High School AP class in 1991) but several years of experience hacking together pieces of code.

I greatly appreciate the willingness of the community to help each other improve their coding skills.

Learning JQuery. I am hoping it is a shortcut to learning more JS. So far, I find it helpful and have begun to find extensions / plugins that make it even better.

I joined specifically for PHP programming Q&A, but I found myself much more active on EL&U for a while. I have only my own experience and my highschool education to guide my answers on EL&U.

(I changed the "f" in "franencoder" to lower case because the proper name apparently belongs to a guy name Phillip, and I wouldn't want someone else calling themselves "TecBrat")

comment htaccess negation rule not being followed
It turns out it was a browser cache issue. Even though I use "ctrl+F5" or "ctrl+shift+r" to refresh, it was still caching. I opened in a new browser (chrome) and it worked fine. I'll dump my cache. I'll consider deleting the question if no-one else sees any value in it.

comment Mod Pagespeed installed, sends headers, but does not filter or cache
I never found the answer to this. I changed servers and upgraded Mod-Pagespeed. Everything works now.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
@DavidSchwartz, thank you for your feedback. I'll take that into consideration. I'm more likely to find that even at peak, I'm not using all I have, and therefor these tests should be "good enough". Is that logic sound?

Change question to be more specific to the answer I actually needed. Make it less like the vague duplicate question.

Somewhere in my searching today I found iptraf and installed it with yum (CentOS). I have it logging and running in the background. I'll check it tomorrow and see what it logs. I'm accepting this answer even thought I did not try "Monitorix" because it seems like the same concept.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
@Jacob, The suggested duplicate is a very vague "is it (will it be) good enough" type of question. I asked my question looking for how to find the statistics I need to make an informed decision. TomTom's answer and comment pointed me in the right direction.

comment How can I find my peak bandwidth usage over a period of time?
I ran iftop (reference here) for a while and the highest spike I have seen after several minutes is around 17Mb (It seems that the small "b" means "bits" rather than "bytes" ) So, unless there's a HUGE difference when the bots come a-calling, I think I'll be fine.

I could add this as an edit, but I think it makes sense as a comment here: Other than getting the new server at 100M and upgrading if I need it, How might I benchmark to know if I need a faster uplink?

comment NS records chicken and egg: NS in the domain it's serving
In practice, it seems to be dependent on the registrar. The company I work for uses our own name server, but when our registrar failed, all our sites were down. So then, the glue record is set by the registrar when you set up your custom name server.

Mickael, If you'll make that an answer, I'll give you credit for it.

comment linebreaks between results in grep
I tried it again. I must have made a mistake when I pulled it out of the echo before. When I just did ps -ewwo args | grep -n '^[^ ]*curl' it worked

At this point, I am pretty much a copy and paste admin, so I found that online. I tried taking it out of the echo and my output was NULL (I think I got that from bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=791164 )
