Nowadays, professionally I'm mainly a Linux server admin (mostly SUSE - openSUSE and SLES) of Testing, Development and Production servers (both physical servers and virtual machines - usually VMware). So, I work regularly with VMware products, namely vSphere (ESXi 4.1 and vCenter Server 4.1).

My netbook runs Ubuntu and sometimes I "play" with Debian systems.

The coding that I do is mostly in Perl and "shell scripts" (for the "bash" shell) for automating system administration tasks in Linux servers. In "previous lives", I coded web applications in PHP for LAMP based projects and also in ASP ("Active Server Pages"), both "classic ASP" - ASP + VBScript - and ASP.Net - using C#

Certifications:
- RHCE - "Red Hat Certified Engineer"
- VCP - "VMware Certified Professional" ("VCP4" and "VCP5")

comment logrotate not rotating the logs
At what time of the day do the daily cron jobs run in your Ubuntu setup? You may find that information in the /etc/crontab file, in the line that ends with /etc/cron.daily ). Maybe you created the logrotate config after the cron daily jobs for that day had already run?
