Malcolm Reynolds says love keeps a machine running when it should fall.. that's good. The beasts at work should die when I quit then, right?

comment How to upgrade debian VM with more CPUs
Yup, I'm making a new vm just for the database. It's currently lamp so apache should be fine with that. Will migrate that too when decoupled. Mysql is by far the resource hog.

comment What is the difference between OUTPUT and FORWARD chains in iptables?
Not quite, packets that are "forwarded" are also "output" by the network interface.. just as packets are "input" before they are "forwarded".. Packet goes in, destined for foreign system, packet enters "forward" chain, iptables decides its OK to forward, packet enters "output chain", iptables checks, see's its "ok" to output, packet leaves.. simples!

scrambles to google So it is!. I try not to touch this server too much (production database).. but now I'm thinking the nuke & pave option might be the best for everyone.
