I'm a web developer at Canonical.

I have a blog about web dev, politics and other things.

I'm interested in UX, client- and server-side development, code architecture and microformats.

I'm not a fan of intellectual property, and I love freedom of information and open-source.

Thanks for the second answer. synclient didn't work for me, xinput did.

Have you any idea how you would create the equivalent of /dev/log with the socket command?

comment How do I get resolvconf to regenerate resolv.conf after I change /etc/network/interfaces?
If you shouldn't do "service networking restart" can I suggest you don't put it in the first line of this question? When hurriedly looking for a solution, the first thing I did was copy and paste the first command I saw.

comment Destroy a juju service and also its associated machine
@JorgeCastro thanks that's exactly the sort of thing I'm looking for. Would you like to write this up as an answer to this question or shall I?

comment Destroy a juju service and also its associated machine
This is more of a justification than an answer. In any case, surely we can trust the administrator to know whether a machine can be safely destroyed or not? I agree destroying the machine shouldn't be the default, but to add a --destroy-machine flag to destroy-service wouldn't harm anyone? Currently there is no way to destroy a machine by the name of a service, which is what I really want: juju destroy-machine-for-service [my_service]

Well hopefully rather than disappearing it'll actually be redirected somewhere sensible.
