I'm a software engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'm on the Growth team.

In 2010, I earned my BS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where I was a research assistant with the Electronic Learning Communities lab.

Feel free to try out ProveIt, a tool we developed at ELC for Wikipedia reference management.

Is there a reason you're compiling rather than using the package?

Post a simple test rsyslog.conf and Python script, so we can help you figure out the problem. rsyslog can do this.

embobo was correct. You can log to an external program with rsyslog. I think you dropped that attempt too soon. You should add more info to that question.

comment does a 302 redirect force another DNS lookup?
Yes, you're right that some browsers cache for performance (possibly longer than the TTL). However, you clearly can't rely on that for the correctness of your implementation. For one thing, it is trivial to disable Firefox's DNS cache manually or with an addon.

comment SQL Server 2005 random login failures for windows forms application
According to this MSDN SQL Server blog, 16 means, "the incoming user does not have permissions to log into the target database." That doesn't really explain why the error would fix itself without any changes, though.
