Umm... really? The UPS isn't going to draw more current through a 30A breaker than it does through a 15A or 20A breaker.

comment Is it bad to redirect http to https?
The issue with HTTPS performance is that establishing a new connection is more expensive because there are more round-trips involved and because asymmetrical encryption/decryption is a lot more expensive than symmetrical encryption/decryption. Once the connection handshake establishes a shared symmetrical encryption key, the ongoing overhead is virtually irrelevant (very small). If you read up on SPDY, you'll see that the goal of all the fancy stuff it does is essentially to serve all the content from a URL over a single connection, mitigating the connection handshake overhead.

comment Bash: mv directory one at a time
I wondered about that, and that would cause temporary duplication since the operation couldn't just monkey with file pointers. But if that's the case, it seems as if it would be much better to get a shell session directly on that machine and use mv the efficient way.

comment How do I remove (un-apply) a named filter from a Procurve switch port using the CLI?
I wish I had, and I will definitely post the solution here if I figure it out. I've been tied up with higher-priority things, but I'll get back to this. Honestly, the best I have at the moment is to export the switch configuration, edit that to just omit the port filters, then reset the switch and upload the "new" configuration to it. But that obviously means taking the network down for some period of time, which is less than ideal. Although I suppose maybe it isn't necessarily worse than doing something like a firmware upgrade? :)

comment Heartbleed: are services other than HTTPS affected?
I'm sure that's what @JasonC meant, but +1 for making it explicitly clear.

That totally makes sense to me. I just don't know what that syntax would look like? That is actually what I was trying to accomplish--remove the ports from the filters, so that I can then drop the filters altogether.
