    Is there such a thing as asking for too much money during an interview?

    Just ask for it - $15k isn't a huge amount of money, and if everyone is asking you to apply, you're definitely in for a higher than "median" salary, so you might as well ask high and let them bargain you down a bit lower.

    Solution to monitor data transfer usage on dedicated servers?

    Definitely go with vnstat. Dead simple to install, and really easy to use. I have it running on both of my OVH servers: [email protected]:~$ vnstat -m    eth0  /  monthly          month        rx      |     tx      |    total    |   avg. rate    ...

    Any one know what Datacenter does sentris.com use in Seattle?

    Equinix has "two" facilities in Seattle - SE2 and SE3. SE2 is actually *in* the Westin, and SE3 is attached by a skybridge in what was a parking garage. For all intents and purposes, they're the same spot, but it's pretty cool.

    Privacy concerns over CGNAT?

    Personally I have no idea with ISPs bringing out CGNAT on an opt out basis for their customers. Obviously, I want my own address, but my parents sure as hell don't need one, nor do lots of casual internet users.  Comcast/Verizon/AT&T could save millions of addresses by doing this, and take a...

    3 Atom Invites (GitHub Text Editor)

    It's basically a Sublime clone that doesn't (yet) work as well, in my opinion.

    Ubuntu Download Time

    LDS? I'm not a Mormon? Anyway, I posted in this (and some of your other threads) because they're absolutely pointless and don't add a modicum of value to this board. I even reported this the real way, too! Why does anyone care about your GVH mirrors? The torrent files are up on the website...

    Or I could just get them from http://releases.ubuntu.com/14.04/ and not some random GVH VM?

    For thoose who doesnt use control panels - mail

    E-Mail administration is one of those things I outright refuse to do unless I absolutely need to. Mail servers are brittle, annoying, and actually getting mail through to other peoples' inboxes can be an absolute pain in the ass.  For mailboxes, I just use Google Apps or another hosted...

    DD Script

    Personally, I don't put anything on a LEB that I actually *need* - I only use a RamNode VPS as staging and the rest of my infrastructure is on dedicated servers. If I were to host things, I'd simply monitor for things like iowait and steal time, and make sure my pages weren't lowing too slow.

    DD Script

    Sure, they would be subjected to potential periods of low performance, but a good VPS host's low performance should be adequate. The difference between a host worth using and one that isn't is consistently good performance.

    Burstnet Los Angeles - Next on the chopping block?

    I think it's best to quit while you're ahead and request a refund and stop ordering, they're on a downward spiral.

    DD Script

    lol i didnt realize you made this dumb post in two places. I'll quote myself on LET Another Mun post. Here, I went ahead and did it myself. It took all of 15 minutes and I rarely do any bash scripting - why is this whole thing such a big deal again? https://gist.github.com/nickvanw/9863660

    Converting entire directory of JPG files to progressive JPGs and reduce quality/size?

    You could do this pretty easily with the scripting language of your choice. I'd do it in python - get a list of the files and for each one rename it to $name_old, resize that one and save it as the original name. That gives you a directory with the originals as well as the resized new ones.

    Install Ghost Blog with Nginx and ModSecurity or Naxsi

    You've successfully managed to write a lot of stuff that refutes absolutely nothing that I've said and demonstrates how little you know about the node ecosystem outside of this shell script.  Node *does* use system tools and packages - they distribute prebuilt binaries on their website, and you...
