I've been in the IT industry since 2000. I have a degree in physics but chose to make my career in IT. Currently I spend more time working with system security than writing code but when I have the time I enjoy perl, php and mysql.

Currently working on:

LAMP servers
Postfix
Windows Server 2008
Network Administration
Security Administration
Asterisk

comment Failing to connect to server via SSH - “Server refused to allocate pty”
Don't get sidetracked by the pty error, you should verify that your . files in you user's home directory aren't broken. Create another user and compare what the default files are in the new users directory to the files for florian.

+1 @Chris - I've never tried it that way. I'll test it out, thanks.

@Chris Nava - I totally agree with you on version control. But you're not addressing his question and rather just providing your opinion.

comment deleting linux cached ram
perceived load time over real load time - that's part of what I'm attempting to explore. I have a followup question that is a good cross reference: serverfault.com/questions/108745/…

comment Linux swapiness - Adjusting Kernel VM settings
I have been able to improve performance. Also, I discovered that the following command helps out during tweeking: # sysctl -w vm.swappiness = 40

I'm starting to think that our XEN environment was partly to blame. No real proof yet. I'm just amazed that an editor was able to use 28GB of ram when the save file was 2909 bytes.

+1 I've been in this new environment for about a month. Check a dozen machines. ulimit responds as unlimited for everyone I've checked so far.
