comment Nginx cache shared between multiple servers
@hangover I see no reason to re-invent the wheel. Nginx cache works well and fast. If we can avoid the overhead of running requests through the application at all, we can keep things nice and fast. Nginx responds to cached requests for us in under 5 milliseconds. Launching our PHP application, even for it to provide a cached response, will probably 10x slower than that. Nginx caching is working well for us now, we just need to distribute that cache among many servers.

comment Is there any reason to keep the “Server” response header in Apache
Removing file name extensions in URLs has nothing to do with security... it's more readable for humans. There are a thousand other ways your application platform is revealed.

comment How bad is setting MySQL's bind-address to 0.0.0.0?
For everyone thinking that the SSH tunnel idea is crazy, consider that the bulk of MySQL traffic is in the clear. If for some reason you have to connect across an untrusted network (i.e. the Internet), consider SSH or doing it over a VPN. Fire up Wireshark or some other packet sniffer if you want to see what I am talking about.

comment Fastest, surest way to erase a hard drive?
@dsljanus, My local electronics recycling place has one of those. They disassemble computers dropped off, locking hard drives in secure crates which are then promptly taken to this beast of a shredder.

comment HP access points sending out multicast packets from IPs that aren't their own
That would not work here. The problem intermittent, and seemingly caused by packets that were corrupt and not sent directly from any application. Even if they were, the APs should behave the way they did.
