comment Chef order of execution
Thanks for the update. I think part of my problem is that I don't want to edit cook_a since its public cookbook from github. Making changes makes it a lot harder to update it later with knife. I've gotten in the habit of overriding stuff in my own wrapping cookbooks and using rewind.

comment Chef order of execution
Edited to clarify away from overuse of bla. As for the bit about the search, it returns multiple results. So I'm trying to get the result with the biggest value of "bla". So initially its a nil and then the first search may be a 1, but the second result is a 5. I want node['foo'] to be 5.

Well that's dumb. So I guess I have to use default_server to get around terrible globbing ..

comment Intermintent slow MySQL Connections
Marking this as answer since its the only one. We ended up upgrading a piece of networking gear between the two servers and have had much better performance since.

comment Using watch to run a shell script - but the script goes defunct
Sorry for taking so long to mark this correct. This was the trick I needed. I set -W 2 and now it works like a champ!
