Developer, UK. Mostly .NET/Windows stack with interleavings of open-source where it makes sense (it more often does than not ;-) ).

Also sysadmin/devop on regular basis for build automation, continuous integration, development infrastructure. Various experience capacity/load testing, both routine and as a result of things going bump.

Aware of life outside the IDE ;-)

comment How to run an OVA + OVF appliance inside of AWS EC2?
At present, ec2-import-image only supports importing images that have Windows guest-OS', so, while useful, this doesn't help my specific case (Ubuntu OVF as mentioned, albeit only in passing) :-(

comment How do you get AWS VPC EC2 instances to be able to see the AWS APIs?
That's another option, except our office infrastructure is decidedly less resilient than AWS, so we don't want to rely on it.
