comment Is there any way to filter packets (eg. by iptables) after routing is complete?
Do you have a link to where this diagram was originally posted? I've seen it elsewhere before, but right now this answer has more Google juice than the original author's prior version.

Argh. I didn't expect new dedup to be performed, but did expect prior dedup to be honored.

comment Using ssh key pair authentication and disabling ssh password authentication - what happens if private key lost?
@Atsby, out-of-band management can (needs to) have its own security constraints in place. In some cases that can mean needing to physically visit a data center, or at least connect to a separately-keyed VPN. If Linode doesn't do rate-limiting to prevent LISH and kin from attack, they're not doing their jobs effectively. (Of course, rate-limiting opens the door to DOS attacks, but there are countermeasures against that as well; needing to pick good balances is part of why it's better to have security in the hands of folks who have the time and care to do it right).

comment Install gems of ruby 1.9 bins without suffix in openSuSE
FYI -- the right way to answer your own question is by adding the answer as an answer (so other people can upvote it, and so the question shows as answered), rather than editing the question to include its own answer.

comment Can RHEL6 servers be “copied”?
...an issue which can be avoided with systems using LVM by using LVM snapshots to take a consistent image of the underlying block device and duplicating that, rather than running copy operations at the filesystem level.

comment Passing free-form commands to Ansible using complex-args form
Fair 'nuff. This is, in my mind, a significant design misfeature... but, well, is what it is.

comment Passing free-form commands to Ansible using complex-args form
Is there a data structure I can pass to any compliant YAML generator to make it emit - shell: ...? If this structure is something that can only be reliably generated by hand, that somewhat defeats the point of the question.

comment “/usr/bin/env: bash: No such file or directory” during puppet exec command
FYI, type bash is better practice than which bash (which launches an external command, not guaranteed to behave identically to the shell's own lookup behavior).
