I spend my professional time working with Linux server technologies.

I previously obtained an RHCE, and studied Computing and Statistics for an undergraduate degree and am currently working through a Medicinal Chemistry MSc.

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.

please provide the error message, or paste in the output from curl. also please give the example of ping, and direct curl to the server. (obviously sanitize any URLS, or ips)

comment Can I define group-specific environmental variables?
if you were going to do any sort of security based on that, I would be more particular about the check because echo "group1 group2 wikiroot" | grep root would match

comment How to imply the WRITE lock on all tables in MySql?
@DukeLion I think hitler was "terribly wrong", misreading the docs is probably just "a bit wrong", or even if you were harsh, "completely wrong" but to the degree of causing or likely to cause terror; sinister or shocking or extremely, as in a crime, would be a little strong.

comment MySql Data Loss - post mortem analysis - RackSpace Cloud Server
I would suspect this is an artifact of rackspace implementation, can you provide some details on what instance type and product level that you had?

comment SSH into Fedora 17 will not work with new users
if you are connecting from a linux client, then the output of ssh -v user@ip-address would be helpful, otherwise enable logging and send the putty log

comment Can Linux file permissions be fooled?
I think the example would have to be more explicit, I don't see that as conflicting. Basically chmod 0300 somedir revokes the permission to read the somedir listing, and not anything to the contents.

comment Can Linux file permissions be fooled?
so I think that chmod 0300 would give d-wx------ which would allow you to cd into the directory (due to x), but not list the files (no r). However because you didn't set the permissions recursively (chmod -R 0300 fooledYa/) the child directory ohReally has normal drwx------ permissions, hence as you see.
