comment VirtualBox inbound network connections failing
Wow, you were right! In direct contradiction to the VirtualBox manual, bridged adapters are not working for my WiFi connection, even using IPv4. I'll submit a bug report to them with my network card info (I have one of the new retina MBPs, so maybe there's some hardware that's not yet supported?). Meanwhile, you should add your comment as an answer so I can accept it. :-)

Interesting - can you elaborate on why it doesn't work? The VirtualBox manual seems to claim it works as long as you're using IPv4, and I'm not sure I can easily swing an Ethernet connection in this office.

comment How can I create an AMI from an existing instance-store EC2 instance?
@Eric Hammond: Okay, I can believe that EBS-backed instances are superior, but what the existing teammembers have developed is a non-EBS-backed instance. As far as I can tell the linked post doesn't have any instructions on how to convert from one to the other, so I'm not clear on what action you're suggesting I take.
