Rsync over SSH - (40MB/s over 1GB NICs)

The fastest remote directory rsync over ssh archival I can muster (40MB/s over 1gb NICs)

This creates an archive that does the following:

rsync (Everyone seems to like -z, but it is much slower for me)

  • a: archive mode - rescursive, preserves owner, preserves permissions, preserves modification times, preserves group, copies symlinks as symlinks, preserves device files.
  • H: preserves hard-links
  • A: preserves ACLs

Authenticating users against mysql

I couldn't find any relevant information for getting this to work on ubuntu precise, so I'm writing my founds here.
It's actually pretty simple, this approach doesn't involve PAM but just NSS. The implications are clearly explained in the FAQ of the nss-mysql module:

NSS stands for NameService Switch. NSS allows you to implement access to various data using any number of modules. This means that when the operating system wants to look up the user "cinergi", it doesn't have to know how - it calls upon the NSS system to perform the task. In turn, we can now configure NSS to look for users in traditional places like /etc/passwd, NIS, LDAP, and now (using this module), MySQL. The NSS

Run IE 7, 8, and 9 in Mac OS X

# the admin password for all of the IE VMs is “Password1″ without the quotes, it's also used for the password hints
1) Install VirtuaBox on your mac
2) Decide which versions of Internet Explorer you want to download and install – each version of Internet Explorer is contained within a separate virtual machine that runs within VirtualBox. In other words, if you want to run Internet Explorer 7, 8, and 9, you will need to download three separate VM’s, which may take a while so keep that in mind. Select the text below and copy it:
# Install ALL versions of Internet Explorer: IE 7, IE 8, and IE 9 (for now this script will also pull down a IE 6 vm with windows xp)

This script is for importing a giant dump of NZB files into newznab. Be warned, it's HACKY!
1) I expect you have downloaded a big archive full of nzbs and have extracted it.

Anchor-include Pattern
View anchorinclude.js
* anchor-include pattern for already-functional links that work as a client-side include
* Copyright 2011, Scott Jehl,
* Dual licensed under the MIT
* Idea from Scott Gonzalez
* to use, place attributes on an already-functional anchor pointing to content
* that should either replace, or insert before or after that anchor
* after the page has loaded
* Replace: <a href="..." data-replace="articles/latest/fragment">Latest Articles</a>
* Before: <a href="..." data-before="articles/latest/fragment">Latest Articles</a>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
