comment Virtualisation for Public Library PCs with vSphere Hypervisor
vSphere Hypervisor (a.k.a. ESXi) doesn't support displaying stuff on the screen -- it's intended for servers which are administered remotely. You might be better off with something like Linux and KVM or Xen or Virtualbox. It should be quite easy to automate starting the virtual machine automatically on boot.

revised Linux server out of space
Technical correction: the inode is the file on disk; rm removes the directory entry which gives the inode a name. The OS removes the inode when it has no directory enties or open file handles.

comment Is Tomcat Native worth the trouble?
Can you say something about the "trouble/risk" that you are concerned about? On Ubuntu it's a simple "apt-get install libtcnative-1" to install, and there doesn't seem any configuration necessary (see tomcat.apache.org/native-doc)

comment Icinga/Nagios to ping different machine on local network
Thanks, I've fixed the check_nrpe syntax so that the example as given (hopefully) works now. Good point about defining a more general check_nrpe_chain command, though personally I find it less readable to have generic commands like that.
