I like to spend time with my lovely wife, our two beautiful daughters, and our dog. I'm also a fan of geek humor, and I've been known to flip out and write codeā€¦ elegant code, if I'm really lucky.

comment How do you install Node.JS on CentOS?
@IsaacRabinovitch They added a ternary if, which didn't come about until Python 2.5. Since CentOS follows the RHEL path of pegging the system Python to some custom-patched version of 2.4, my solution was to yum install python26 python26-devel and then execute python26 configure instead of ./configure. Then, since the Makefile also executes Python scripts, I defined the PYTHON variable in there to be python26 instead of python. Also, you're going to need g++ on there, so if you haven't already, you should yum install gcc-++.

comment How does Amazon handle all that email for their Kindle personal document service?
I thought that made the most sense from a systems perspective, but I guess I'm inexperienced enough that I don't know how you have N email addresses that are all actually processed by the same queue processor.

Do you have specifics for things like "Set up good logging and log-analyzing procedures"?

comment Is there a good guide to using “The DJB Way” with FreeBSD?
I'm aware that there's not a "djbnix". I specifically meant replacing Sendmail w/ qmail and BIND with djbdns, as well possibly using clockspeed, etc. Sorry if that wasn't clear. I was mostly concerned with how to replace important chunks of the system like the MTA, as well as any problems that might arise from things like the difference in expected filesystem layouts you mention.

comment pg_dump and pg_restore: input file does not appear to be a valid archive
Try importing the dump on the same machine that generated it. Also, check the Postgres versions.
