I have been using computers for over 20 years, starting with Sinclairs, Apple II, Commodore 64's, TRS-80, and CP/M based stuff. I have managed SunOS 4 workstations, firewalls of all sorts, Linux, FreeBSD, AIX and Solaris servers, done a fair share of network switching&routing management (from vlans and port mirroring all the way up to BGP routing), and even been a FreeBSD committer for a few years.

comment Conditional variable setting in nginx
True. Maybe this is enough, though I lose the information that the request came through the load balance. I'm trying not to lose information here.

That doesn't preserve X-Forwarded-For -- sorry if I didn't make that requisite clear.

comment deploying Python code with Puppet
@FrançoisBeausoleil It requires you to write ruby scripts for anything you want to do; it is a client-server application, so any failure on the servers makes them unreachable; it requires you to deploy your modules to the servers before using them; it requires a running process on the server, and, at that, a ruby one; it has an extremely unintuitive CLI, regarding server selection, modules, mcollective parameters vs modules parameters; it has very poor error reporting; the documentation sucks; the existing modules are buggy. Probably other things I'm forgetting as well.

comment Cant use groups in a virtual user
@jdehnert Correct. You can declare undef as default for $groups, and then you don't need to specify it always. Unfortunately, you'll need an if below to select between a user declaration with groups, and one without. Note too that if you do not pass groups to the user, it will not have one.
