comment Making libmagic/file detect .docx files
This worked for me too - although I made the mistake of using the ~/file-5.11/magic/Magdir/msooxml source, which didn't work for some powerpoint example files I was using. The version in file-5.17 works great though (maybe something to do with tabs or...dunno).

curl --trace-ascii <file> --trace-time -o /dev/null <url> was exactly what I needed. Thanks!

comment Does anyone use check_mk for Nagios? Anything I should be aware of before considering it?
I haven't used this, but it does IMO it fits into that fuzzy devops landscape. In chef/puppet you'd use ohai/facter to do what it sounds like this mk plugin does, you'd export a nagios configuration that wires an ohai/facter status. This perhaps looks less roundabout. Thanks for the link, I'm definitely gonna look into it myself!

comment Recommended account manager for unix box?
awesome, thanks! I love those wikipedia comparison pages. Granted they never quite have the categories I'm interested in, but still a huge time saver.
