comment better way to loop through a list of servers
@MichaelMartinez the trap is nice, and I wasn't aware of the 'continue N' syntax in bash - great.

"Easier" - less typing, or a "better/more correct" way. I hadn't considered doing it in parallel - how would you do that using xargs? I usually use multixterm (one of the scripts in the expect package).

comment FreeBSD how to rebuild all p5-* Perl 5 ports
Thanks sudo pkg install fsharp "just worked". Now I need to study up on ports/portmaster/portupgrade/etc for future installs...

comment FreeBSD how to rebuild all p5-* Perl 5 ports
Thanks user76776 for pointing out UPDATING. I'll have to RTFM on the differences between portmaster/portupgrade/pkgng - still BSD n00b. Commands 2 & 3 didn't solve problem (fsharp install), and command 1 failed (command not found) as I haven't installed portmaster (yet).

comment How bad is setting MySQL's bind-address to 0.0.0.0?
For a small setup (one db, one www) you might do ssh tunnelling. For a real setup your vpns and firewalls would be protecting you, therefore you'd open up via 0.0.0.0 to allow remote access.
