I work at a large Internet Services company in Silicon Valley.

After a lengthy stint primarily dealing with Windows, it's great to be back in Linux Land! :)

Big +1 for mosh! It even handles disconnect well, making it a good screen replacement on top of it!

comment Failed to connect from slave to master with error “error connecting to master (1045)”
I just discovered a case yesterday where a 42 char password failed, but a 32 char password worked. Maybe this is version dependent?

would be great to know what the limits are. What is short? what is long?

comment Supermicro BIOS recovery - SUPER.ROM
The reason why there is no display is because you need a working bios to initialize the display hardware; the special recovery routine probably has just enough code to do its job. I haven't done this procedure in a long time (when I did, it read the recovery BIOS from a floppy!). I'm pretty sure any BIOS can be used but check with support if you're unsure. I always found the Supermicro email support to be helpful.

comment Enterprise IPv6 Migration - End of proxypac ? Start of Point-to-Point ? +10K users
It is OK to disable ICMP ECHO and ECHO REPLY packets (ping uses these). The other ICMP types should not be blocked inside the LAN.

Be careful with disabling ICMP completely (very bad advice). ICMP ECHO (and response) is not the only ICMP traffic and is actually little used for a long time as an attack vector. ICMP Destination Unreachable, Fragmentation Needed, and some other messages are very necessary for the proper function of a network (path mtu discovery, etc...).
