I started developing software on a small Casio basic calculator in 1987. I graduated to C, then C++ and finally Java. Although I work daily with Java I have a wide base of experience in a lot of other languages and technologies as well. Reading my blog will give you a good idea of some of the more recent trails I've explored.

I have created a few Stack Exchange related projects:

You can find some of my work other places as well:

comment MySQL not appearing in PHPInfo
What distro are you using? You probably need to install the php-mysql package unless you compiled php by hand.

The operating system does the check.

comment DDoS Network Protection Devices
@Andre That is why I said it depends on how large your connection to the internet is. Unless you have a deal with your internet provider the DDoS traffic is still going to come over your connection to the Cisco box. If the DDoS is exploiting a slow part of your system then the box will help, if it is just filling your internet connection with too much traffic it won't help. Most real DDoS attacks these days use bot farms that just fill your pipe with traffic.

@packs That was fast, I just noticed the issue when I double checked it again and you got to it before I could. :)

comment How to set nameservers for Amazon EC2 instance
That probably means they aren't doing authoritative DNS for your domain. It sounds like you may have fixed that so that link should show up eventually. As long as you don't need SSL for multiple domains on your box one IP will be enough.

It would help if you included your Apache configuration file.

comment Why is .htaccess not allowed in a directory but is allowed in another?
It would help to include the contents of your .htaccess file for dvdcatalog install.

comment Amazon mount EBS
Is the mount freezing or is the entire system freezing? Is there anything interesting at the end of a dmesg output after trying to mount it (assuming the system doesn't freeze)? Are you able to just mount the volume without using the fstab entry?

comment Load balancing and HTTPS strategies
A lot of them seem to have it out of the box now but your mileage may vary. Some may do the encode/decode in software on their base models with an upgrade path to a dedicated hardware module or completely different appliance. You would need to ask the vendor to know for sure.

comment Running out of swap space on web servers, what to do?
Can you sort that top by memory usage so it is more obvious what is taking up memory?

comment Software to self-host online backup
Zmanda can do it both ways or online and then I'm pretty sure you can download it to backup the backup. Also as someone commented there is little chance S3/Amazon is going away anytime soon.

comment Link aggregation with DSL and Ethernet, and different ISP's?
I believe you will be fine because whatever does the traffic shaping will do it at the same layer for both paths.
