I'm Gideon Israel Dsouza. Check out my CV on Careers. (gidisrael-at-gmail-com)

I've been teaching myself programming since I was about 11.

I have the odd need to know how everything works. I own Linux, OSX and Windows and play with C#, Perl, Python, RaspberryPi's and Arduino. Check out my CPAN modules and my latest side project : http://perlmonksflair.com/

I will usually edit your question or answer if it's a huge block of unstructured text :)

comment nslookup fails inside freebsd jail
Thank you for your reply :) Yea I'm getting it installed with portmaster. What I mean't is, first I will do portupgrade -NRFPP lang/perl5.14 on the host which will download on the host. I will then copy this file into the basejail created by qjail and then inside the jail I will do pkg_add /path/to/file/downloaded/perl5.14.tgz right?

comment nslookup fails inside freebsd jail
Also, doing a pkg_add -r portupgrade gives me : Error: Unable to get ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/amd64/packages-9.1-release/Latest/portup‌​grade.tbz: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access) Ok, I guess I can install portupgrade with portmaster

comment nslookup fails inside freebsd jail
hey but how would I access the host from the jail? I would have to copy the package into the basejail first and then do pkg_add right?

comment attempt to change ec2 instance type fails instance status check
I tried with the same security group and then created a new security group and tried again. No luck. After it goes from pending to running, it loading.. in the status checks column and then after a long time says 1/2 checks failed. On the bottom of the dashboard I see Status Checks => Instance Status Checks And it says reachability problem, try rebooting .. (which I did)

comment nginx server directive is not allowed here
Should I just bunk this setup and try the one from here => Putting a config in sites-enabled. It's written for debian but I'm on amazon ec2 RHEL.

comment nginx server directive is not allowed here
where is the extra { ? I just moved include into the http { } block, which also has it's own server {} block. If I put the include inside the http block it gives me : unexpected } and removing it gives me a success :S

comment perl app on apache and cgi behaves terribly with 504 gateway timeouts
Why the close votes? This is about my apache config and not about programming.

comment ssh with cygwin for amazon ec2 gives permission denied (publickey)
@rackandboneman but this is a file amazon generates, is it *nix specific? IOW you're saying I should generate a new key and check its format?

Hm. I've been accessing this instance from my mac mini regularly for a month now. I'm assuming if that was possibly then, then everything is fine on the linux machine?

comment narrowing why server post from perl web app fails on ec2
Seems there was a small bug with code I wrote to detect the response code from my LWP::UserAgent object. Fixed it, and seems the response code is Nothing!?
