Upstart is Ubuntu’s replacement for /sbin/init, and Monit is a great little monitoring service that lets you do intelligent things when errors occur and servers fall over. But for some reason Monit is still installed as a System V init daemon. So I switched it over to use Upstart.
Node.JS is a great little server and it’s also very easy to install and set up. In the same fashion, NVM is a fantastic tool for installing and switching from one installed version of Node to another. The problem arises when you develop as one user but the deployed application needs to be run as a different user and you need to guarantee that the Node configurations they are using are identical. How do you use NVM to install node globally for all users?
The Dell Inspiron 14z is meant to have 4-5 hours battery life out of the box. Suffice to say that this wasn’t the case when I first put Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) on it. Two hours if I was lucky, more often 90 minutes or less.
