comment Human readable system memory reading crom CLI?
It is, certainly, more precise to display it as so.. no doubt about that.. probably the "humans" this is intended for are still aware of the issues you raise.. (I had not thought of that).

comment Human readable system memory reading crom CLI?
I did not know free had a (nice) -h switch. Thanks. Very interesting how free deems 4.0G (which is what I get) more human friendly than 4 GB. "Mum, I'm hungry, I'd like 1.0 apple, please." If this is the best we have on Linux, I should probably just parse the number out and replace G with GB myself.. Very rarely do we see HDDs, for example, advertised as "320G" rather than "320 GB". :(

@Patrick: I dislike OS X when comparing it to Linux!

comment Grep end regex matching
This is the best I have found anywhere. The -F to include both the colon and the space trims the rest of the line already, in one go. Very compact, exactly right.. LIKE!

comment Grep end regex matching
Does not capture the unit of measure, in that case GB, which was desirable.. perhaps a capture "from field 2 to NF"? How would you write that?

The cookbooks look amazing. I know no Ruby though and some things.. I found difficult. Puppet sounds more "natural" to me, would you advise against it? Why?
