Subject OT RE: load balancing on apache by IP CHAINING
Date Mon, 17 Dec 2001 14:46:36 GMT
I don't know how many of you read SysAdmin (http://www.samag.com), but there
is an interesting article on running IPChains at runlevel 0.


--Joe Breeden

What to do...
    if you get a phone call from Mars:
        Speak slowly and be sure to enunciate your words properly.  Limit
        your vocabulary to simple words.  Try to determine if you are
        speaking to someone in a leadership capacity, or an ordinary
citizen.

    if he, she or it doesn't speak English?
        Hang up.  There's no sense in trying to learn Martian over the
phone.
        If your Martian really had something important to say to you, he,
she
        or it would have taken the trouble to learn the language before
        calling.

    if you get a phone call from Jupiter?
        Explain to your caller, politely but firmly, that being from
Jupiter,
        he, she or it is not "life as we know it".  Try to terminate the
        conversation as soon as possible.  It will not profit you, and the
        charges may have been reversed.
