ps. Am I correct that the bucket isn't browsable even if you know the bucket name? Can you overide this? I set the bucket to public but still get an xml error

I just had a play with s3, the new web console makes it a lot easier than the old s3cmd. I just create a long pseudo-random bucket name and a meaningful file name to pass to the client. I don't think this was easy/possible(?) when I first played with s3.

Suspect the roaming profile is cached somewhere or is being recreated when you reconnect to the server - better question for serverfault

comment Is it a good idea to install Subversion on a production server?
I was assuming they meant a 'deploy' type build, ie. rolling out a website or server config rather than compiling an executable app.

@dbasnett good point - I assumed Google's 8.8.8.8 could handle the load.

tried it - too complicated to setup. Looks like I will write a bit of python

That's pretty much what I would have written (only in python) - I just assumed there was a little systray tool to do this.

comment Is there a distro of Linux without GUI? What do hosting companies install?
ok - but the point stands - you can't just switch to runlevel 2 and disable the gui.
