comment Go(lang) with nginx - Serving Static Files
I've been looking at go for all of two hours, but would it be helpful to use the concurrency and channels (prefix some of those with the 'go ' keyword) for parallelization?

comment Inherit existing server
I could also remark that I put in as much effort as you apparently did researching your question. "Ubuntu find what is installed" and "Ubuntu what processes are running" works in my version of Google...

The term for what you describe is "Developer" or "Developer forced to take on some Systems / Operations duties".

You are not a DevOps. DevOps is not a title, it's a culture.

comment How to use wrapper recipes in chef?
This is in a custom cookbook recipe, in this example, the cookbook is called 'appname'. Honestly, it sounds like you should spend some time on learnchef.opscode.com

comment Can't link Deltek Advantage 8.0 (Access 95 bookkeeping GUI) to SQL Server 2005
The only direction that I could point you to is toward a pub. Though in all seriousness, nobody should be expected to support (or be expected to recover) software running on a 10-year-old database, written in 20-year-old software. There comes a point where it is unreasonable to expect you to support. The only thing that I could expect someone to be responsible for is the backups/restore of the server.

comment Disk Capacity Planning for Whisper / Graphite
You have to calculate this for every retention policy, and 4.5MB is what it works out to for my (single) retention policy, but yes, that's the rough formula...

comment Disk Capacity Planning for Whisper / Graphite
This is a new implementation at this company, and I don't have access to my old one. Since the top-level fileSize result matches the ls -l result, I take that to be bytes. When I add up the sizes of the archives within the .wsp file (as reported by whisper-info.py), they come close to the overall .wsp file size (the rest I assume being metadata and such. This should be the size of the file for all time, as data falls down to lower data resolutions, and old data points are discarded.

I can't upvote that comment enough. OP, you're putting a lot of effort into not learning g tools that will actually help you. Learn Git and Chef (or Puppet, ir Ansible, or SaltStack...)

comment Are most webserver benchmarks useless?
I agree with the heart of your answer, but I'd say that the most important benchmarks are the performance profile of your app in Production (a continuous and constantly watched set of metrics.)

Evan, Excellent call on restoring the IIS Metabase. That ended up fixing the issue.

comment Exchange2003 Denies Mobile iOS Devices after SSL Cert Renewal
I'm not disagreeing with you that they're different problems, but I'm head-desking over a "permissions" issue, when it's clear that the right to use mobile is set in Exchange!

comment Exchange2003 Denies Mobile iOS Devices after SSL Cert Renewal
Yes, that is part of my confusion as there were no other changes. The other part of my confusion is that it's just ActiveSync that's broken; half of this company's users are outside of the LAN, so their Outlook is configured to use the HTTP proxy, and are doing so successfully.
