AWS ELB health check potentially remove all instancesview story

http://serverfault.com – So, when using AWS ELB, there's a health check url we use to ping db server / check out bound connection, etc. If there are unhealthy instances, they are removed. But if the db server is down, our web server is designed to continue function to the best of its ability. (Design for failure). These 2 concepts seems to conflict each other? If a single server is not health, it'd be removed. (HowTos)

Bonobo Extreme 8 fingerprint readerview story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I just recieved a bonx8 and everything is great except I can't figure out how to set up or enable the fingerprint reader. If you search for it in that Unity search it sends you over to the user set up window but fingerprint isn't an option. I looked at the quickstart guid (which was just 2 pictures) and I didn't see a link to drivers on the System76 web page. (Hardware)

Quitting my career and getting a PhD - Thoughts?view story

http://forums.anandtech.com – I've been working in the GIS industry for about ten years at this point and I'm very strongly considering applying for a PhD program and starting in the fall of 2015. I used to really love what I did, but it seems like the industry is heading towards all web-based, software-as-a-service, Javascript stuff. I have zero interest in this. GIS seems to be turning into just another facet of IT. (Hardware)

Open Source Web Site Creation Softwareview story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi all, Once upon a time I used to use the Microsoft product for basic website creation. I'm not a developer, and I'm not proficient in any development language. I'm merely looking initially stand up a couple pages on a site to establish a "web presence", so it doesn't have to be anything super. What's more important is that the tool is intuitive and has a very small learning curve. (HowTos)
