comment How can I diagnose and speed up slow Linux puppet sync?
Ack! I found it. Shorewall was rate-limiting. I edited the question to remove the unrelated symptoms.

Okay, so why is this so slow? It's only 12Kb. /Stage[main]/Mailmxbackup/File[mailmxbackup-mailman-aliases.db]: Evaluated in 31.29 seconds

comment Have Postfix/OpenDKIM sign only authenticated and local origins
Yes. I can imagine a solution by installing two instances of DKIM, one for a verifying pipeline and another for signing, but I'm hoping there's a better solution.

comment Mediawiki behind reverse proxy populates user IP address with proxy address
Sorry, I can't seem to undo the -1. I was relying on incorrect documentation but I see that, in practice, it must be $wgSquidServers.

comment find command + enable Exit status to be diff then 0 when not match
Okay, you just don't like my style. For my use cases, any errors that find might report are either noise or so serious that they'll show up elsewhere. In any case, this method correctly answers the ultimate question: "Is there an accessible file in the path by the given name." An error will return a correct answer of "No". If I want to find out why not, I can add more complex code that answers questions not originally posed here.

Perhaps the other person who downvoted (presumably for the same reason) can provide a contrary example?

I'm not sure what your example might be, but I accidentally omitted -print -quit, which might address your concern.

comment find command + enable Exit status to be diff then 0 when not match
I don't believe that's true. Please describe your example. If there is an error and find exits, then the string will be empty and test will return non-zero.

comment Windows 7: Route single IP over different interface (wlan)
+1 Poi is correct. Windows 7 routing is capricious. A lot of people don't understand Windows networks, and many of those people work at Microsoft and many more who don't understand Windows networking post condescending replies here. Windows 7 will often ignore the specified interface when a route is added and when it does record the specified interface, it ignores it internally. Windows 7 certainly does not choose the most specific route entry, although it well should.

comment Windows 7: Route single IP over different interface (wlan)
The previous comment by @ChrisS is false. Windows 7 does not use the most specific route. See my upvote comment in my response to a downvote comment below.

comment MySQL: Bind to more than one IP address?
Note, however, than you can publish and serve both a local unix socket and a network socket by specifying both the socket and bind-address options.

comment “ssh root@server” hangs forever
ConnectTimeout doesn't work, generally, after the connection has been established. When I do that in one case, for example, it waits for the authentication to complete, which can be an indefinite period of time.

comment Ubuntu Upstart script hangs on start and stop
Choices are "exec" or "script / end script". The example uses the latter.

comment Why is the wrong name server information at crsnic.net & gtld-servers.net?
Oh, and I used eNom’s web interface in a HostGator subaccount, so it wasn’t HostGator’s use of the API, anyway.
