I'm a husband to my beautiful wife, father to our children, Computer Science graduate from University of Central Arkansas. I love my wife, our children, computers, playing guitar (especially singing/playing for my wife and/or kids), bicycling (including taking my kids for rides in my bike trailer), woodworking, airbrushing, digital and traditional artistry, playing games with my family (traditional and digital), my poor Chevette that I had to sell, throwing knives, firearms, knot tying, rope making, whip making, and really just learning new stuff in general. If I don't know about it I probably want to learn about it, if only so I can make informed decisions about it.

My three favorite programming languages are Python, Lisp, and Assembly (though I'm not sure about the order of those last two languages...), and I currently develop in .NET languages, especially VB.

I think the CANSPAM act is one of the dumbest pieces of legislation in the history of the universe

Code I can write/read (where 1 is just barely, 3 is the average user, and 10 is the language designer/guru level):

  • Python - 6/10
  • C++ - 4/10
  • Perl - 3/10
  • Assembly - 3/10
  • HTML/JavaScript - 5/10
  • VB.NET - 5/10
  • C# - 5/10
  • Befunge - 2/10

You should move "Don't Panic" to the top, in large, friendly letters.

comment How do I get Nginx to pass authentication on to IIS as a reverse proxy?
@MathiasR.Jessen I just changed it to http://server_two:8888/$1 - I still get the authentication issues. As far as I can tell, it's not correctly passing the authentication (user/pass) through to IIS - or back again. That communication is broken somewhere

Worked for me, though the service didn't work so I just ran ps aux | grep supervisor and then sudo kill -HUP pid
