  • GPO to push out local administrators across a domain. – Spiceworks – This how to will walk you through using Restricted groups to put users in the local admin group on all PCs. It will also add them to the Remote Desktop user's group. The usefulness in this is keeping as many people out of the domain admin group as possible while allowing the techs to work.
  • xkcd Password Generator – The button below will generate a random phrase consisting of four common words. According to yesterday’s xkcd strip, such phrases are hard to guess (even by brute force), but easy to remember, making them interesting password choices.
  • welaika/wordmove · GitHub – Wordmove is a nice little gem that lets you automatically mirror local WordPress installations and DB data back and forth from your local development machine to the remote staging server. SSH and FTP connections are both supported. Think of it like Capistrano for WordPress, complete with push/pull capabilities.
  • How to send svn diff to meld | Thomas Cokelaer’s blog – On one hand meld provides a nice GUI to visualise the differences between 2 files. On the other hand, with SVN diff command, you can obtain the differences between 2 versions of the same file so you end up with one file.

  • coderwall.com : establishing geek cred since 1305712800 – Setting up an EC2 instance on AWS used to be as straightforward as provisioning a machine and SSHing into it. However, this process has become a bit more complicated now that Amazon VPC has become the standard for managing machines in the cloud.
  • Set up public and private subnets using AWS VPC — Mike Melnicki’s Blog – This is a step-by-step guide on how to set up public and private subnets for running a service on an internal network within AWS. This guide will also set up a bastion host (or jump host) and show you how you can easily ssh in to the hosts within your private subnet via the bastion host. All of this stuff can be done via the AWS web console, but I thought it would be helpful to show the specific commands and provide some commentary about what is happening on each step.
  • WordPress Checklist (Infographic): 101 Easy Steps to Follow. – It’s a big struggle in remembering the steps involved in setting up a WordPress website. And we soon realized that, there were hardly any checklists that covered all the aspects of WordPress together! That’s when we decided to create “Killer WordPress Checklist” that would cover everything from the pre-launch directions and development process, to SEO, maintenance and security. Honestly, this checklist has worked wonders for us and hope it does for you too!
  • Monitoring EC2 Memory and Disk Usage In CloudWatch Using Custom Metrics | Celingest Blog – Feel the Cloud – With CloudWatch we can track and monitor a lot of metrics across many AWS’s products and set alarms when certain conditions are met. When these alarms are triggered, they can notify us or automate actions such as shrinking or increasing an AutoScaling Group capacity. CloudWatch knows a lot about our EC2 instances’ at the hardware level but it lacks the software’s point of view. In this post we will explain how to use CloudWatch to monitor important resources it can’t monitor by default.
