I connect computers, humans, and narrative.

I'm always looking for interesting projects, especially if they involve Lisp/Clojure, Python, or JavaScript. I am in the process of relocating to Seattle to join the team at Amazon. I write about technical thoughts at http://stronglyemergent.com along with a co-author, and I have a GitHub page that I'm gradually populating with projects as well as a CV/résumé at Stack Overflow Careers.

Two years later, I note that there's no resolution, and I'm having the same problem.

I measured those times by using time curl $foo for a variety of pages.

Yeah, I think you're barking up entirely the wrong tree (but so was I initially).

Adding and removing that flag did not have any effect on the problem.

comment Recovering From userdel root
Manually adding "root" back into /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow is what we ended up doing. Accepting on that basis.

comment Recovering From userdel root
Sudoing actually didn't work while the root account was not present. Going to runlevel 1 and manually adding the user to /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow, then changing the password, seemed to work. With the help of vm snapshots, we recreated the situation. :D
