I spend my professional time working with Linux server technologies.

I previously obtained an RHCE, and studied Computing and Statistics for an undergraduate degree.
Currently working through a Medicinal Chemistry MSc with the Open University.

Have made some minor contributions to some open-source projects on github; https://github.com/tolland

and maintain a terrible ranty, unresearched speculation blog on blogspot.co.uk; http://take-your-vitamins.blogspot.com/

None of this is fit for human consumption.

also grep for statd in whichever files your OS keeps it's system log; grep statd /var/log/messages*

comment Desperate: statd timed out, lockd cannot monitor / unmonitor
is statd running? ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep statd, if so, which interfaces/ports does it have? netstat -lnp | grep rpc.statd, if not, start it, and paste back the output /sbin/rpc.statd -F -d

comment Going from Vagrant in development to chef-solo in production, and getting a “FATAL: NoMethodError: undefined method `delete' for #<Chef::Role” error
you can give the chef-solo -l debug options to get some verbose logging (pastebin.com that, or open a ticket on opscode.com with that output)

comment One hostname and two servers in different countries
see point 3. for services providing Geo-aware DNS, which would avoid the need to send an HTTP request first.
