  1. Simplistic Auto Provisioning for BSDs, UNIX and Linux, using just DHCP

    For a few weeks now i've been thinking about better tools to provision our bare-metal servers and VMs. All tools out there are IMHO bloatware. Over-complicated stuff where nobody knows when the next library upstream will break feature X which will prevent shit from working. Typical wobbly constructs we have these days. I'm not a fan of them, you shouldn't be either.

  2. High Performance URL-Shortening with Redis-backed nginx

    I've spent my vacation wisely on writing my new customer interface. While doing that, i've played a lot with redis which is one of the most remarkable pieces of software i've ever seen. Altho it's not usable for "important"/"non-temporary" data (since it's only a key value storage and has limited query capabilities), it's perfectly made for caching stuff.
