I'm a startup founder furiously learning to program. My formal education is in Mechanical Engineering and I was previously a manufacturing and design engineer doing industrial automation.

I have experience with: OSX, Linux CentOS, HTML & CSS, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, Sphinx, ElasticSearch, CodeIgniter, CakePHP, Slim Framework, SupervisorD, Amazon Web Services ( EC2, EBS, RDS, SQS, & S3 ), Subversion & Assembla, GIT & Github, API Design, Big Data management and analysis, and large scale web-crawling.

I also worked with a few proprietary industrial languages at my old job including GE Fanuc.

The DHCP Options are domain-name = ec2.internal AND domain-name-servers = AmazonProvidedDNS. The settings in /etc/resolve.conf match ( except it's 10.0.0.2 instead of AmazonProvidedDNS ) ... Should I change this to use a public DNS server like Google's: 8.8.8.8? Why won't Amazon's DNS resolve anything?

Interesting ... that does seem to be the problem. I can ping IP Addresses for Google.com. What does this mean for my VPC? What is the problem?
