comment Can't reload supervisor with supervisorctl 'reload' command
I had these weird issues using the version of supervisord in the CentOS yum repos. Nuked that version & went with the easy_install method. No problem since. The version in the repos is pretty old too & doesn't support a lot of the new features on their website.

comment Why *do* windows print queues occasionally choke on a print job
I didn't say the aforementioned PDF's were not valid, just that they were choking the print drivers. The problem I dealt with was reproducible every time with scanned then optimized/OCR'd PDF's. If you didn't optimize/OCR the PDF, it didn't happen. Why? I don't know. My best guess is a buggy print driver coupled with some funky fonts/characters OCR inserted. You ever try to copy/paste some of the stuff OCR generates from a PDF to a rich text editor? It's not all letters & numbers. :)

removed "crap adobe puts on your system" b/c apparently that causes people to get all kinds of butt-hurt.

comment Why *do* windows print queues occasionally choke on a print job
My experience mainly centered around people trying to print off scanned PDF's. They scan the PDF, optimize it and/or OCR it in Adobe, then later try to print it off for whatever reason. My memory is fuzzy, but my research at the time led me to believe the optimizing/OCR'ing of the PDF was imbedding certain glyphs or fonts that the print driver would choke on. I could never narrow it down to something precise & I haven't done it in a few years (thank God). The ultimate underlying issue was definitely the print driver, but just triggered most by Adobe PDFs.

comment How-to configure Dell Drac5 and access to it
It may be that some of the cheaper models do, but I've never seen one personally. In this pic: storagereview.com/images/…, you can see the DRAC interface clearly labeled on the left side.
