comment How do you install Node.JS on CentOS?
This worked beautifully on my CentOS 6.4 system and gave me node and npm. I got node 0.10.13, just a little off the latest src tarball 0.10.15. It seems this need upvoting more to stand out as it trumps the 'install from source' option.

comment MySQL port 3306 blocked in csf yet can still telnet to port 3306 from external host
Thanks jpgeek, I followed your directions and made some progress, but ultimately the output was too confusing and I'm not paid for this work, I'm paid to make our PCI scan pass :) To resolve our issue, I created a rule at the top of our INPUT chain (-I to Insert rather than -A to Append) iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 3306 -j DROP .. this closed the port and our PCI scan passed. I wish I had the time to investigate more properly, and might come back to this if something else falls over or (quite likely) csf overwrites the rules at some point.

comment newaliases.postfix hangs
For the record: I've just installed a completely fresh Centos 6.2 with only postfix installed. alternatives --config mta only had 1 option which was already selected, but selecting it again caused a /usr/bin/newaliases to be created. This seems to be a symlink via the /etc/alternatives/mta-newaliases link to /usr/bin/newaliases.postfix, yet the two behave differently. strace shows newaliases.postfix stops when it reads on stdin (read(0, ") .. newaliases doesn't read on stdin, it just seems to open /etc/passwd a few times then complete normally.
