comment SSH connection lost during server upgrade - How to reconnect to process?
Woah thanks! I was actually running a release upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04 in byobu and then it closed when byobu was upgraded but I was able to reconnect to the root screen session and watch the upgrade finish! I nearly tried to forcefully kill the upgrade but luckily I read this response in time.

comment SSH connection lost during server upgrade - How to reconnect to process?
Incidentally, I preempted this and did a do-release-upgrade over ssh by using byobu, but when byobu was upgraded it killed my session! I wonder if using screen directly would have prevented this. But the other answer to this question answered my situation, seems like the installer is smart and runs its own screen session anyway :D

How does this move the actual file on disk?

comment Debian - What to do when upgrading packages and a config file has changes?
Heh, at this point I don't even know what I was asking about. Merge tools are useful of course. One thing I've found since I posted this that's quite helpful is etckeeper. At least for smaller systems I see no reason not to use it, it just puts /etc under version control (git in my case) which is pretty handy if you're confused about what changes you've made in the past. The auto commits won't tell you why you did something though.

comment Postfix .procmailrc mail bounce loops
Actually, you know, I'm not sure that this would work. Would the custom header necessarily be included in the bounce notification from the final recipient server?

Also, is it normal for the bounce to come back to our server rather than the sender? It seems like the sender is the one that should care about it.

Thanks, that sounds like a good solution. Could you elaborate on that a little though? Where do I check for it when it comes back in?

Yeah, I guess you're right. This is kind of a silly question.

comment Group readable cron jobs a security risk?
Yeah, I guess you're right. It doesn't have any passwords because root is set up with a .pgpass file that will allow root to access the postgress databases without authenticating. It just seemed a little weird to me but I guess there's no problem with it.

Hmm, OK. That makes sense. My question was kind of silly I guess.
