I've been programming forever and I love it still.

I do a reasonable amount of open source stuff, particularly with Python. I use Ubuntu, mostly out of habit.

I mostly hang out on IRC, but it's hard to get points & badges there, so I'm exploring the world of StackExchange.

sigh I just tried this in a fresh lxc environment and it worked fine. No idea what's going on in my main system.

comment Tool to fire up EC2 instance and SSH in?
Configuring Juju with ec2 took a while. The ubuntu charm is currently broken but I fetched it with bzr branch lp:charms/ubuntu and used the local repository option to deploy it. After juju reports a successful deployment, I had to wait a while (about two minutes) before I could see a public IP in juju status. Even then, juju ssh ubuntu doesn't work. I had to type juju ssh ubuntu/0.

ubuntu-ec2-run fires up the instance, but needs quite a lot of extra configuration to open up a port for SSH and set up a valid SSH key pair. (-g <existing-security-group> -k <name-of-keypair>)

Thanks. I'd point out to readers that the key thing here is switching 4 and 5 in the order.

comment How can I convert my FLAC music collection to Apple Lossless?
What I ended up doing here was writing a custom Python script that called metaflac, ffmpeg and AtomicParsley.
