comment Allowing nagios plugin check_dhcp to work without setuid root
If only Nagios and its child projects could be relieved of their crappy old development methodologies, this would be pretty trivial to fix in a pull request, checking for the specific capability rather than just root or the setuid flag.

comment To use cable management arms or not
I wonder how awesome it would be to manage an environment that homogenous. Throw a SAN, some fiber switches, and six or seven different models/generations of servers in a rack, then try to make it look like those 9000 words.

comment Robustly disabling specific cron.{hourly,daily,weekly} script
Coming back when upgrading the program is a side effect of the package tool in use, can't be fixed via simple means, and isn't the fault of Cron. Some package systems nuke and pave previous files, others diff the new and old, and prompt you if there are changes to review. Regardless, updates that produce unintended behavior should be a frustrating, but routine part of unix systems administration at this point. There are simply too many packages moving too swiftly to regularly review all changes for their impact in each individual environment.

comment NFS client shows everything as nobody:nogroup
we had the same problem after a minor 12.04 upgrade somehow switched everything over to v4 (before it was using v3 without us anything special (which was weird in its own right). The kind of things you get when you take over somebody else's servers.

comment problems specifying user password with puppet (+vagrant) on precise32 virtualbox
I did already. I used vagrant box add "new box name" http://boxurl.com and pulled a new box. You can find a whole bunch of them at vagrantbox.es.

comment problems specifying user password with puppet (+vagrant) on precise32 virtualbox
Mine ended up being an issue with the test box i was using; the lib crypt library wasn't installed correctly. I downloaded a different vagrant box and it worked beautifully.

comment Apache: insecure request sent to secure port…want to redirect
Works beautifully man. Dumped that into a redirect.pl in the cgi-bin and set up the corresponding ErrorDocument 400. If I could accept this twice I totally would. Thanks so much for your help, and kudos for being a better Apache Ninja than me :)
