comment Nginx - What is does the nodelay option do when limiting requests?
I think you're incorrect, the nginx manual states: "Excessive requests are delayed until their number exceeds the maximum burst size". Note that until exceeds maximum burst is entirely different meaning than over the burst that you said. You also conflated burst with excess requests, I believe excess requests means it's above the zone, while it may still be below the maximum burst.

comment Prevent nginx from redirecting traffic from https to http when used as a reverse proxy
Indeed, that seems to be the "official" way to do it... see wiki.nginx.org/SSL-Offloader

comment How to get automatic upgrades to work on Ubuntu Server?
The Ubuntu 10.04 (official) Server Guide seems to be out of date. Refer to my answer for more info.

comment Iterate resources in a puppet template
It gets the job done sometimes, but there are cases when augeas doesn't work with the file or that it's just not the right approach.

comment Iterate resources in a puppet template
Agree on jjmontes... this seems to be a pretty common requirement. I got hit by it often too, and I resort to dirty quick fixes. :-(

comment GIT as a backup tool (am I a silly person?)
I'm using it for MySQL backups too, with --extended-insert=false. Be sure to "git gc" regularly or right after commit.

Regarding increase in size, please do 'git gc' regularly or before you push to another (central) server. Without this the git repo may grow (much) larger than it should. I once had a 346 MB git repo that can shrink down to 16 MB.
