comment Scaling Logstash (with redis/elasticsearch)
i have had problems with ES and these super cool setups. I am now writing my own simple syslog receiver in python. The only way to deal was to start ahead and keep adding ES nodes, increasing size of logstash ...nightmare. I believe apache does block on log file write so that could be an issue if it couldn't write to log file.

comment gallery2 and nginx with rewrite return file not found for file name with space (or + sign in url)
That did not work. already tried. Gallery2 actually does something to the value again internally. It throws a security error if you tried to rewrite the way you are saying. I suppose you have not tried this with gallery2. If you have please post me the relevant rule of nginx in the answer.

comment Can ping machine by IP but not by name
i was going to write what garpher has written. Try to do this in cmd.exe "nslookup <computername>" see what the lookup server is. in my case its the router's name.domain because my router can handle internal domains.

comment How can I determine if a machine is online without using ping?
This is indeed a good answer and a very correct one. SNMP is low level enough and can be configured on windows systems. Its the only alternative to ICMP and in fact routinely used by network engineers for monitoring routers and systems over WAN and LAN

comment SQLite-like NoSQL option?
I dont think there is a true flatfile nosql solution out there. Mongodb claims to be able to run for small installations requiring minimal config and it does do that. However there is no way around running a daemon. I suppose it is the way nosql systems are designed that they must manage processes. Other than that you are basically looking at flat files or sql embedded databases.

comment SQLite-like NoSQL option?
neither does nosql. nosql usually does not implement btree but most commly hash indexes or range indexes. It is true that it will read entire thing to memory with CSV but since you wanted an embedded one I assumed it is not going to be a huge DB and reading from memory might infact be better. You can however use MS Access for flat file querying using ADODB or similar adapters for your language.

comment Cannot SSH into Amazon EC2 instance
@David, yeah that happens. I know it happens when you stop the instance. Now with multipe IPs to EC2 this is gonna be one hell of a headache.

comment Random Server shutdown? - CentOS
YOu need to go back a bit further before the system halt was sent. check /var/log/messages (possibly older than what you have pasted) /var/log/secure . It is possible a halt command was sent by application or by user.

comment anyone doing php-fpm and APC? cache files missing in /tmp
i believe you will have to run each pool as different user, if that's possible. else it should theoretically work with different pool configs. It could be a bug. I am using php 5.3.8 with fpm.

comment anyone doing php-fpm and APC? cache files missing in /tmp
no i did not use chroot. the pool config is standard unedited version. APC does work but I just did not see the files.

comment joining workgroup on a network with two routers
I am going to try disabling DHCP on the Router B and see if I can get to use DHCP on A transparently. However Router B supports VPN and I was hoping to use that later.

thanks for the awesome replies. It's somewhat helpful. TomTom, what happened when Copenagen won? What can they do to the outsider?

comment Legal threat, defamation from Italy and Germany
thats not possible in my case and again similarly tedious. But I do want to be sure that I can't get sued randomly everywhere in the world. I agree with both Tom and Bart's answer. I wish I could afford a lawyer and this seems very trivial, but in SG i will end up paying 100s of $ just for an hour. Further I think OnStartup is a better stackexchange to post this at. If I could just move the post over....
