comment What is Thin and why do I need it
In the beginning Apache served static files and it was good. Then apache served CGI, and it was not so good. Ever since then we have come up with a bajillion different methods attempting to deal with the fact that plain old CGI sucks. Thin is one of those tools.

comment DHCPD assigning wrong DNS server
127.*.*.* is the loopback address. No DHCP server would hand this out, since it wouldn't make any sense.

comment How to replace a fan on a 3com SuperStack 4500 unit (and where to find a fan)?
Seems likely that these are EOL, since the company hasn't existed for 4 years. If anyone knew it would be HP, though I doubt they are supported anymore. There seem to be lots of these type of switches on ebay. Pick up a few old ones and cannibalize them.

BTW, the question you linked to had a better answer here. serverfault.com/questions/351108/…

comment Resolve all external addresses to an internal address when an internet connection is missing
I would be tempted to setup a tool like monit. Set monit to monitor your connection. If the connection is down, have monit run a script that modifies the DNS server configuration as needed. Likewise you would create a script to return the system to normal when the system is back up.

comment IPv6 connection dropping on Debian 7
I am confused. You claim it works, but you interfaces, has a /64 mask, but the obfuscated ipv6 address has a /128 mask. Something isn't right there.

comment How to run multiple commands with psexec?
False, read the docs. Passing the -c option causes psexec to copy the script as part of the task. technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx

Create a script pass the -c option so the script is copied to the remote system.

I hope you know you will need SNI for this, which will exclude some old browsers and systems.

not sure this is really a SF question. Maybe it would fit on webmasters?

comment ways to automatically fix line endings in shell scripts or files who break with ^M
Can you convince people to start using git or another DVCS for publishing. The setup hooks that verify the files have the correct line endings and so on?

comment Creating a GoDaddy wildcard certificate
If you have the above files already, and the files actually contain the bits in the standard formats, then you already have a certificate in to two different formats. You seem to think you need some other format, but you haven't told us what format you need or or the software/service you need the keys for. Please edit the question to tell use the type of server, the name of the specific software you are trying to setup and so on.

comment Is it necessary to validate the file integrity when curl succeeded
I suspect you would probably be fine 99.9% of the time making this assumption, but I can imagine a few obscure cases were the request might appear to succeed, and yet you would an invalid file. One example might your session terminating in a captive-protal environment immediately before you ran the curl request. Your request would get redirected to the portal, and you would would be valid, but you would get a content you didn't expect. Of course this would only apply to http, and not https requests.

comment need help writing puppet module for sssd.conf using Hiera
Given the syntax of the looks like a standard ini file, I would use the inifile module if you hadn't already planned on that. Then just build a module that can set the classes you want. I am assuming you are running a 3.x+ version of puppet?

comment Which method to use for granting sudo
@EEAA, I grant you permission to use the above, and anyother comments I post to merge into actual answers. I add comments because I am too lazy/busy to add a full answer, but I don't mind at if people take my comments and integrate them into a complete good answer.

comment Which method to use for granting sudo
I didn't downvote you, but your 'answer', doesn't really answer the question asked. This is a pretty strict Q&A site, we generally expect answers to directly address the question asked. BTW, yes I know you somewhat address the question a bit, but your 'answer' seems most saying do what EEAA said, but be warned about this weird quirk.

comment Which method to use for granting sudo
For Ubuntu you should very strongly avoid editing the /etc/sudoers under any conditions. Instead add config fragments into the /etc/sudoers.d directory. Using the fragments folder makes upgrading easier since you modified a conffile.
