comment Is there a way to do something like LVM over NFS?
Reading about this kind of hack makes me feel diiirty. But not necessarily in a bad way. I'll have to keep this in mind someday when I try to do something just as crazy.

comment Forwarding port 3306 on Mac OS X in order to connect to a remote MySQL Database
Is your remote host configured to allow forwarding to other hosts? Does it have a firewall? Is 3310 used on the local system (you can check with netstat -an |grep 3310)?

comment How do I install VMware tools on Ubuntu 9.10 Server 64 bits with no GUI?
@kbyrd, Nah, yours was a good answer, and you got there first. I just happened to have access to a system that I've done this on recently and figured I'd record the steps here for posterity. Thanks though.

comment Disk space consumed
How large was the database you were trying to clone? Presumably, there is a temp file that it was using for the clone and you just need to clean that up, but I'm not a postgresql expert. Good luck!

comment Can i safely block all ports on my sever
I was referring to the IP of the system you are connecting from at the time you block all the ports. Just in case something goes wrong when you make the edits you want to be able to get back in to fix them. Yes, servers can connect to themselves, and many do (for example, if you have a web server running an application that uses mysql or some other database, the web-server will access the database over a network connection to and from 127.0.0.1). This is why I also recommend making sure you don't accidentally cut off this type of traffic. Cheers, --jed

comment Bash script to create mass series of directories
All excellent points, although I might not use && because if the directory already exists, I still might want to chmod it (not sure, the poster wasn't specific). If there are hundreds of users, I'd probably use the answer from the previous poster, which I mentioned is a better answer. But if there were just a few users, and I wanted to quickly get this out of the way without bothering to create a script, make it executable, then run it, I'd use my admittedly primitive one-liner. Thanks, --jed
