The kids begged Mummy last week to drag this car off the council strip from up the road. The battery is stuffed and it only goes in reverse (switch stuffed). I've replaced the reversing switch with a relay - all it needs now is a battery and it's good to go.

Random Elasticsearch fact: When running Elasticsearch from within openvz containers - make sure that you give them veth devices rather than just IP addresses. Otherwise zen discovery will not work.

Proxmox is working out great as a home server. I have many small containers performing various tasks - all with puppet managed config.

This makes it much easier to manage and buildup/teardown when experimenting with different things. Much easier than the previous setup which was one monolithic server which had all the services on it.
