comment Using variables in Apache config files to reduce duplication?
Excellent! This does what I was planning to do for far better than I thought would be possible to do.

comment Flexible sudo access
@Paul: If you think it can be done with wildcards, why not post an answer with an example? I don't think wildcard are restrictive enough to be safely used.

comment How do you use VIM to edit tabular data (tables)? Specifically, BIND (named) DNS db files
I think his problem is that this makes the lines ridiculously long. Especially when you consider some fields are only a couple of characters long.

comment Can I have separate IP for A record & MX record
It's worth noting that care must be taken when using backup MX providers. There are a number of subtle problems that can arise if everything is not configured carefully. Mismatching spam filters can provide a way for spammers to bypass spam filtering, not having control over all the servers makes it difficult to debug problems using mail logs and one mis-configured backup server could cause mail to intermittently go missing. For most people, it's usually acceptable to let sending mail servers store and attempt to re-transmit messages, rather than trying to setup a high availability setup.

comment ssh session idle timeout
It's also worth noting that you can do it the other way around aswell. If you couldn't change the server config, you can get the ssh client to send the keep alive packets instead using ServerAliveInterval.
