comment How can I send visitors to the closest server using DNS?
Also worth noting that DNS has this feature natively. Put a DNS server in a region with a record pointing to a webserver in that region. Repeat in other regions. Profit.

comment rsyslog - configuration help - logrotate and compression
Upvoted yours too b/c you put more thought into the templates while I just pointed to the docs. I've moved on to syslog-ng b/c I hate all the changes to Ranier script and the conf files in rsyslog.
